In brief: Acupuncture trials

Clinical trials have shown strong evidence that acupuncture can decrease nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy.
Studies have shown that acupuncture treatments given as an addition to ivf improve rates of increasing pregnancy. Pilot studies showing improvement in chronic sinusitis. Acupuncture has also shown improvement in function and pain as additional/adjunctive therapy in knee osteoarthritis.
