The Chinese mapped a network of channels that direct energy, or qi, through the body. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that uneven flow of energy can cause disease and pain. An American Board–certified family physician with a medical degree from the Morehouse School of Medicine, Dr. Maiysha Clairborne integrates Western medicine and holistic practices for a complete approach to health and wellness. Dr. Clairborne taps into the hormones and chemicals in the body with thin needles to stimulate your body's ability to heal itself. Because the needles are smaller than hypodermic needles, they won't cause you pain; in fact, many acupuncture clients find the treatment relaxing. Under the guidance of a fully certified general practitioner, you can rest assured that your acupuncture session is completely safe and sterile.
The National Institutes of Health concluded in 1997 that acupuncture is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual cramps, and back pain. Even fiddle-fit specimens of health can benefit from acupuncture treatment since it's known to boost the immune system—just in time for flu season and the end of the Mayan long-count calendar in 2012.

Reno Raines: Renegade Acupuncturist
The stunning popularity of acupuncture in modern America can be traced to a seminal cultural phenomenon: the hit 90s TV series Renegade. The first of many shows to bring the Eastern art of healing with needles into the mainstream, the series’ haunting intro continues to inspire idealistic young acupuncturists:
- Reno Raines. He was an acupuncturist, and good at his job. But he committed the ultimate sin, and testified against other acupuncturists gone bad, acupuncturists who tried to kill him, but got the woman he loved instead. Framed for murder, now he prowls the badlands. An outlaw performing acupuncture, a rogue acupuncturist, a Renegade.
Independently wealthy, Raines accepted only kindness and handwritten letters of thanks in exchange for his services. Riding alone on his motorcycle, Diana, Raines stopped in his rambles just long enough to thwart local corruption, do some acupuncture, and capture the heart of any woman foolish enough to fall for him. A movie featuring Reno Raines, rogue acupuncturist, is set to be released soon, tentatively titled The Acupuncturist Who Travels Around and Gets Into Adventures.
