A complete system unto itself. Concerned with balance of Chi or Life Force. Under stress, chi is out of balance – deficiency of chi in one area, blockage of chi in another. Chinese medical practitioners diagnose by checking pulse: 3 different places, 2 different depths on either side. Each pulse is a different organ in the body. Patient sticks out tongue for doctor to check. Treatments: medical herbs, massage, diet, and acupuncture. Good research data show it helps with sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, and pain.

    @MrJulesNapier This being the case acupressure would be no different than massage. If you read the study the toothpick was used to fool the patient to thinking it was a needle. The patient was blindfolded the toothpick was used in a similar fashion so that the poke felt like the needle. Patients were not told that they were receiving acupuncture with toothpicks.

    @MrJulesNapier The aforementioned studied show that needles did not need to be inserted in order to receive the same affect. Surely ancient cultures could have used a blind fold and simply done the tooth pick idea without inserting needles into the skin. I am not to well versed in acupressure. I do believe it is simply the basis of acupuncture but without needles. My response would be that the where the needles or pressure or toothpicks were placed did not matter.

    @MrJulesNapier What i meant by the placebo effect and immunizations is that I meant when a person is given a placebo, how that placebo is administered has an effect on the placebo effect. Capsules work better than pills, and injections being the most effective. When people think that something will work they think something like a needle will work best. It is not about dose, but rather method of distribution. 

  5. braedencowbrough Reply May 1, 2012 at 5:45 am

    @MrJulesNapier Again the placebo effect is found to have differing levels of response. With immunizations ranking as the most effective as a placebo reaction. This follows suit with acupuncture. Acupuncture is based on qi, and meridian point needle insertion. If there is no baring in meridian points and needles then the whole premise of acupuncture falls apart. The toothpick therapy would simply be placebo therapy which only superficially deals with pain.

  6. braedencowbrough Reply May 1, 2012 at 6:20 am

    @MrJulesNapier Yes but you forget the two most important points. 1) The areas at which the needles or toothpicks were inserted did not matter which causes the premise of acupuncture to be faulty. 2) If needles and insertion are not required for the same benefit then there is no need for them. No more acupuncture with needles is just that simple. I personally think it needs more work into how the body will illicit a response when it thinks it gets treatment.

    @MrJulesNapier About the tattooing. Tattooing has never been a medical treatment, therefore the risks involved are not to improve health but are for superficial means, so the two practices need not be compared. That would be like comparing heroine use to use of morphine at a hospital for pain mediation. I apologize for not discussing the paper further, 500 characters does not allow for much. If you want to discuss this further inbox me and I will be more than happy to :)

    @MrJulesNapier Arch Intern Med. 2009;169(9):858-866. You cannot double bind something like acupuncture treatment because it has to physically be administered. My citation is the paper to which i refer.The gist of it was, the toothpicks were used in the same fashion as the needles, the patients were blind folded, and essentially they thought they were getting real acupuncture. Watch concordances video on acupuncture. (C0nc0rdance)

    @MrJulesNapier Acupuncture is shown to have no better affect than a placebo acupuncture demonstration using a toothpick. Actually the toothpick had higher ratings. Using acupuncture with tooth picks not needles. The needles run risks with things like infection, or having the needles break off, or puncturing too far. Please, talk to your health care professional about the dangers of acupuncture. There are benefits, but nothing that can be obtained by simply using a tooth pick.

  10. The same / similar studies that show that acupuncture has no benefit or noticeable effect also say that Chinese medicine/herbology is ineffective, that Qi Gong does not effect the body, and that there is no need to stretch before and after exercising. They would also argue that pressure points are are a myth. Pressure points can heal and enable, or disable and kill. Accupuncturists require extrodinary levels of training. A single miss in the wrong place can cause pain unlike anything else.

  11. I’ve read that controlled studies show that accupunture has no benefit over placebo (placebo being toothpicks)

    There have been plenty of studies that have shown that the only real effect Acupuncture and other alternative ‘medicine’ practices have on the body are the release of endorphins. It’s a psychological effect, based on being able to relax the mind and body. You think it works, and therefore it does. I think as far as being better than normal medicine, it’s bogus, but if it helps people feel better, it’s at least doing something right.

    Well to be fair to 13Xanadu, I’ve always wondered what is supposed to be effected in acupuncture? What is supposed to be going on? When a doctor administers a particular drug or performs a particular procedure there is a very concrete part of the body being affected in a concrete way to achieve a particular concrete result. Acupuncture just seems to be “whatever” about cause/effect relations. That seems to suggest that acupuncture DOES defy categorization as a real science.

    very informative..i am not sure why people call it a peusdo science when it works..i had this one prof in uni that said that if it wasnt for acpunture, she prob woudl not be able to walk now.

    how are needles supposed to relax you??

  21. @13Xanadu Where is your scientific evidence for that to be true? Oh wait, you have none, just your stupid ignorant opinion. How about YOU stay away. Thanks.

    People like you don’t know shit and probably look like a ugly troll with sewer feet and breath.

  22. Be careful while needling Liver 3. It can occasionally bring down the BP of an individual suddenly and can lead to stroke. Measure the BP of the individual before using this point. This is the only acupuncture point known to cause over correction and defies otherwise homoeostasis effect of the acupuncture session.

  23. It depends on what nerves you hit.

    Centuries old, yoga can help build strength and flexibility, while decreasing stress. It also promotes a balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Yoga is a great way to help lower high blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing rate. No one is too old for yoga. No one is too young.

    First of all, there is more evidence that TCM works than there is of most drugs and pharmaceuticals.

    Secondly, you can not measure, evaluate, or study TCM and its therapeutics using metrics related to other practices, such as western medicine; it would be like trying to measure speed with a manometer.

    Do not try to find evidence of TCM from a point of view outside of TCM. I have seen more western doctors simply say “we do not know what to do” than TCM doctors….and get results.

  28. who cares, they´ve been doing it for 3000 years and they are all ok

  29. There is no objective evidence that accupunture works. Many studies have found its effect is equal to a placebo. Do a search on any evidence-based medicine database; pubmed, cochrane library, ACP Journal etc., and you will find the same thing.
