Evidence based effectiveness of Acupuncture

Acupuncture tends to have high levels of patient satisfaction (ASH, 2016, Betts, 2017).
 
In the link following you can find information and downloadable pdfs on The Acupuncture Evidence Project: A Comparative Literature Review (2017).
Our study found evidence for the effectiveness of acupuncture for 117 conditions, with stronger evidence for acupuncture's effectiveness for some conditions than others. Acupuncture is considered safe in the hands of a well-trained practitioner and has been found to be cost effective for some conditions. The quality and quantity of research into acupuncture's effectiveness is increasing. (Plain English Summary PDF, McDonald & Janz, 2017)
 
The Evidence Based Acupuncture website also has excellent up to date Acupuncture research and information including WHO guidelines and information on safety. https://www.evidencebasedacupuncture.org/
