Study Finds Acupuncture Secrets

How acupuncture works has been a great mystery to scientists, but now it appears that acupuncture on pain-relief points cuts blood flow to key areas of the brain within seconds. This provides the clearest explanation to date for how the ancient technique might relieve pain and treat addictions. The specific brain areas affected are involved in mood, pain and cravings, which could help explain why some studies have found acupuncture helpful in treating depression, eating problems, addictions and pain.
