Massive New Acupuncture Study Shows Definitive Relief for Chronic Pain

A massive and amazing new meta-analysis has come out and shown great results beyond the placebo effect with Acupuncture and chronic pain. Researchers conducted a systematic review to identify randomized controlled trials of acupuncture for chronic pain with a huge total of 17,922 patients analyzed. With data from 29 high-quality clinical trials dating back to the 1990s, researchers have concluded that the pain relief derived from acupuncture is partly real, in that it can't be ascribed entirely to the placebo effect.

There's huge press around this.
