(a) acupuncture actually does work for a other purposes,
(b) nobody seems to have made any studies of _why_ it works,
(c) it appears rather obvious a neurological mechanism is involved,
(d) humans can change their metabolism using e.g. hypnosis,

then it would seem possible that acupuncture may also be used to do this.

So I wonder if anybody has done actual studies of whether this is possible,
or if standard Western jingoism is at play.
