6 Science-Based Benefits of Acupuncture... Oh Joy, Finally.

From The Center: Natural Health Specialists February 2014 Newsletter

I came across this article in Prevention magazine.  While I am happy to see people  being informed on some of the benefits of acupuncture, I must admit I have a bad attitude  toward articles of the nature.  Its like, "Oh boy, the latest 'scientific research' has found  acupuncture may have some benefits! I guess it really is a legitimate medicine! Who  knew?!?" Well, I am so glad that Western science is now graciously bestowing "legitimacy"  to Oriental Medicine.  Maybe now acupuncture could start be used as a primary form of  health care for millions of people. Oh, wait...that already happened... like 4000 years ago.

Anyway, here are some "science-based" benefits of acupuncture. Apparently all the  other benefits are not "proven" at this time.  I guess thousands of years of results has  simply been a whole lot of lucky coincidences.  Whatever...  I'm just so thankful  acupuncture is now being validated by science because I am starting to feel that I just  might not be a total quack.  Up till now, I haven't been entirely sure.  

Yes, I recognize I may possibly have a slightly bad attitude... Maybe I'm just jealous not  all of my clients look this amazing happy when I work with them. :)
