Everywhere you turn there are stories about celebrities getting acupuncture. Supermodel Elle Macpherson recently said in an interview "I have acupuncture regularly".
Elle is not the only celebrity that seems to have become star-struck with this traditional form of healthcare. Gwyneth Paltrow, a longtime advocate of the benefits of acupuncture, once said that having acupuncture had guided her to a "new level" in life. Dr Maoshing Ni, an acupuncturist in Santa Monica, lists Jim Carrey and Helen Hunt as two of his many famous clients.
Acupuncture is becoming more and more respected by conventional medicine, so much so that there were acupuncturists on-site for the athletes at both the Summer and Winter Olympics (source: Press Zoom).
