A History of How Denver Acupuncture Pierced through Western Medicine
Miriam Lee was the first licensed Acupuncturist in California in 1972. She was given a trial period to prove that the practice will work consistently, instead of it being a hit or miss, like most people believed at that time. Governor Ronald Reagan signed acupuncture to be a legal experimental procedure and many success cases were written into account, and then publicized. 1976 finally saw the legalization of acupuncture in the U.S., which brought forth a wave of many Chinese doctors and acupuncture practitioners. Since then, the practice of acupuncture in Denver, and many other parts of the U.S., has been steadily growing in popularity.
