Peter Deadman

Community Acupuncture, or the 'acupunk' version of it described by Lisa Rohleder in 'Community Acupuncture: Making Buckets from Ming Vases' in the last issue of The Journal of Chinese Medicine, is a vigorous, inventive and pragmatic response to the dual problem of patients being unable to afford treatment and practitioners being unable to earn a living.

This article discusses the strengths and possible weaknesses of the acupunk approach.
