New acupuncture study released!

A recent study has given some insight on how acupuncture helps with pain relief. The study, published in the journal Nature Neurosciences, indicates that the insertion of acupuncture needles helps to release natural pain killers in the body. The tests show an increase in adenosine, which helps control inflammation (and therefore pain) in the body. This demonstrates to many skeptics that acupuncture is not simply a "placebo treatment."
