Chinese Acupuncturist Treats Veterans of Iraq War

China Press, Posted: Jan 01, 2010

JUNO, Alaska--Some American veterans of the Iraq war have turned to Chinese acupuncture to help them recover from injuries and relieve their pain after surgeries. The China Press spoke with one Chinese acupuncturist who has worked at a military hospital in Alaska after completing a three-year term in Germany. From 2003 to 2006, Zhu LingBing, an acupuncturist for the American force, followed the U.S. military to the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) in Germany to provide medical support to American soldiers injured in Iraq. Zhus acupuncture techniques were mainly used to relieve pain after surgeries. Zhu told China Press that the soldiers expressed interest in his techniques and their bodies responded effectively to the treatment. Some of them even cut their use of pain relievers in half, according to Zhu. During his time in Germany, Zhu said paratroopers visited him most often for help with knee injuries they sustained while landing.
