Acupuncture is rapidly gaining acceptance in the modern medical world. The Department of Veterans Affairs now hires acupuncturists. There are thousands of private practices throughout the U.S., and even insurance coverage for treatment in some states. Acupuncture is most commonly known as an alternative treatment for pain, but it can also help with a wide range of conditions like depression, anxiety, digestion, infertility, and more.
In Does It Hurt?, Licensed Acupuncturist Burton Moomaw guides you through an introduction to acupuncture by answering the eight most commonly asked questions he receives from his patients, those considering acupuncture for the first time, and the simply curious. He includes medical theory, case studies, informative illustrations, a glossary, and a robust index.
Burton Moomaw LAc. DiplAc. is a practicing acupuncturist in Boone, NC. As a former professional rock climbing guide, Burton honed his skill communicating complicated ideas in simple terms to people in precarious positions. He brings that ability to this book, simplifying and demystifying the complex, ancient medical art of acupuncture.

"There are many acupuncture texts from the classics to modern writings, but we've long needed this slender and accessible volume by Burton Moomaw for patients looking for an introduction to the concepts and context of acupuncture. Burton has answered his patients' (and prospective patients') questions from his years of clinical experience with grace and personality. The result is a real contribution to our field. I'm delighted to have this very readable book to recommend to the general public interested in our healing art."
