I wanted to alert both practitioners and patients to the wonderful work of Mel Koppelman and others who set up evidenced-based acupuncture.org. Mel has led the move towards documenting evidence that supports the effectiveness of acupuncture. She also helps to make sense of research and guides non-researchers like me in interpreting it correctly. This is incredibly important work, and enables practitioners to talk to their patients, or to acupuncture-sceptics, in a language that they will relate to. Here is a link to part of an interview Mel did with Jenny Dubrowsky (www.tcm007.com).
