ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study that explored the perspectives of patients with medically unexplained physical symptoms (MUPS) on the process and effects of traditional acupuncture. A sample of 20 adult interviewees was drawn from participants in a randomised trial that took place in London, England. The results revealed that interviewees valued time with a caring practitioner and the acupuncture sessions' interactive and holistic nature and many perceived a range of positive effects.
