Yep, you read that right - starting this year Mission is now covering acupuncture in its employee health insurance plan! How amazing and awesome is that? I see this both as an indicator of the growth in the field of acupuncture in general and as an affirmation of its efficacy by practitioners of modern medicine in this particular area. I must say, it is such an amazing and interesting time to be in the field of Chinese medicine, at the cusp of the integration of these two esteemed traditions that used to be so separate, even adversarial.
I see this as yet another indicator that there is a more general and growing awareness and understanding that all medical traditions have their inherent strengths and weaknesses. More and more individuals are using a variety of treatments in a complimentary way, choosing whatever modality is appropriate for their presenting condition or combining therapies to enhance the effects of each other and speed their healing.
As an already established Mission Community Partner in the hospital's Employee Wellness Plan, we look forward to continuing to work in partnership with individuals from this esteemed, forward-thinking establishment!
