Acupuncture Gains Ground in Kenya as Nerve Therapy-Tara Manji on BD Life

Share this:
At an acupuncture clinic in Nairobi’s Muthaiga, there are hundreds of needles of all sizes that are usually stuck on patients’ eyes, feet, ears and even tongues. About 16 to 20 of these needles are used on the different body parts to relieve pain or rejuvenate the body. Acupuncture, a complementary treatment long shunned by many Kenyans is growing in popularity with about 10 acupuncturists now in the market to serve from women undergoing in vitro fertilisation, patients with Tourette Syndrome to men with persistent pains.
