From the book … 40 YEARS OF COUNTRY: LIFE OF A RURAL DOCTOR IN NORTHERN SASKATCHEWAN … author … Dr Mervin L Johnson

On the 17th we went to Hanoi where I spent a day at the Bien Hue Hospital. This was built by the French at the turn-of-the-century. It was huge, covering a square block. It was in this hospital that I saw acupuncture being used for lung resection. The patient was awake, but likely somewhat sedated. The remarkable thing was the patient was talking and answering the anaesthetist, even though the surgeon had just opened her chest, and handling her lung! When the patient started wincing with some discomfort, the anaesthetist would turn the acupuncture needles and patient would settle down. We watched this for thirty minutes in unbelief.

I've had Sciatica in my right leg for 12 years as a result of a back injury. Some days I could hardly put any weight on my leg, after 1 TREATMENT the pain has virtually gone in fact the pain isn't there at the moment. I have 4 more treatments to come but I'm positive that this treatment does work and is not some hocus pocus, it is definitely a Scientific based treatment. Two of my friends advised me to have it as it also worked for them.

Why you don't just dance around the pacient? If well executed you can achieve the same results.

Would acupuncture achieve the same relaxing, plenty of endorphins, if the patient is standing up?Because the whole session takes, one to two hours, giving plenty of time for a laying down body to relax and recover regardless the needles.

And, let's not forget, electoacupuncture isn't acupuncture at all. It's a mild version of other therapies that stimulates the body with electrical shocks.

In the end, the only relevant thing you said is that this is all about the experience. Yep, like placebo groups in a blind study. You could just say the coffee in the clinic is and ancient South American grain that natives thought had magical traits.

Listening to her "modern biological" explanation on how it works was cringeworthy. No, the modern biological explanation for how it works is the placebo effect.
