Sounds like a good mixture of healing work. I've just been learning about acupuncture and I'm so impressed with what it seems to be able to do. The clinical evidence is starting to mount up, too! I wish they used acupuncture instead of anesthesia in hospitals. Imagine how much more quickly you'd recover from surgery with this kind of minimalist approach to pain management! Our liver wouldn't have to do as much work afterwards to metabolize and get rid of the drugs!
