MRI Proof Acupuncture Improves Hearing

Though I'm unable to find the original study, Health CMI is posing a study showing MRI proof that demonstrates that acupuncture needle stimulation increases signal strength in the auditory cortex of the brain. They manipulated SJ3/Zhongzhu) and the brain response was accompanied by an increase in auditory cortex signal strength thereby indicating the brain’s ability to react to auditory stimuli. Clinically of note, subjects with unilateral hearing loss, the side with hearing loss showed significantly increased auditory cortex fMRI signals in response to auditory stimuli following acupuncture stimulation.
