I've seen acupuncture used in dentistry - a patient with a brilliant gag reflex (nearly vomited whenever a mirror went near his mouth) had a
acupuncture needle put in his chin and within a minute had impressions taken in his mouth with no problems. Was under the impression that it was
smoke and mirrors combined with a bit of hypnosis - *but* it worked.
*This* link actually gives some sort of basis to how 'deep needling' works - but open heart surgery????
Anyone else have any interesting stories to relate about people sticking pins in them?
