No surprises there... Smile

To the best of my knowledge their are no proper scientific studies that actually proof that acupuncture has any real benefits (aside from the inevitable placebo).

Now, you'll often hear acupuncturists say that there are some good studies out there that actually proves acupuncture works. That said, they've probably been conducted by themselves (or organization) and have not been put forward to the correct channels of peer review.

I get scared when I hear the terms "Meridian" and mystical "energy lines". No

"Well, if it's thousands of years old, and chineese it must be good"

Why do people believe that? As we've progressed in medicine we've dropped procedures that don't work based on scientific tests and results.

Hey buddy, pass the leeches!
