Acupuncture are firmly grounded in science, and you don’t need Chinese philosophy either to make it work,

Dr Adrian White, editor in chief of the scientific journal Acupuncture in Medicine said:“In the past it was easy for doctors and scientists to dismiss acupuncture as ‘highly implausible’ when its workings were couched in talk of chi and meridians. But it becomes very plausible when explained in terms of neurophysiology,”

And there’s plenty of scientific evidence, which has been building up for the past 30 years, to show that acupuncture stimulates the nerves in the brain and spinal cord, releasing feel good chemicals, such as opioids and serotonin. The research also shows that a needle placed outside of the traditional meridians will have an impact.

So,Acupuncture are firmly grounded in science, and you don’t need Chinese philosophy either to make it work.
