Burn injuries respond well to acupuncture treatment. Although, few people know, Korean acupuncture can successfully treat burn injuries. Patients experience less discomfort after acupuncture treatments, and the burned area has fewer scars overall.

Burn injuries can happen in any situation. Burns can occur while cooking, playing, around a campfire, and doing other activities.

According to American Burn Association, about 1 million burn injuries in the US require medical attention annually. About 50,000 require hospitalization; 20,000 suffer severe burns affecting at least 25% of their body surface; and 4,500 pass away.

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), up to 10,000 Americans per year pass away from burn-related diseases, .
