It's good to hear of scientific proof that acupuncture works, even if only in rats. In an article in the Guardian (22 July 2015), researchers in the States found that the acupuncture point St 36 reduced “chronic stress-induced depressive and anxious behaviour in animals".
But then we know that
acupuncture reduces “stress-induced depressive and anxious behaviour” for many
other conditions, not only in animals but, much more importantly, in humans,
too. And also, that it is not only St
36, but many, many other points which do this.
I wonder whether the rats
used in the experiment might all have had Earth as their guardian element!
