Study Shows How Acupuncture Stops Pain

This article from the website discusses a western scientific study designed to explain acupuncture’s pain relieving effect. It’s a quick, interesting read. I would offer the caveat that no acupuncturist would recommend using morphine or other opiates after treatment, a conclusion a quoted researcher mistakenly draws from the study findings. It is validating to see western studies that scientifically verify acupuncture’s results. KB
