Research Shows DeQi Better For Bell's Palsy

Fascinating new study comparing 6 month outcomes of Bell's Palsy patients when needling to elicit DeQi or just with insertion only. After 6 months, patients in the de qi group had better facial function, better disability assessment and better quality of life. Acupuncture with strong stimulation that elicited de qi had a greater therapeutic effect, and stronger intensity of de qi was associated with the better therapeutic effects.

Does this finally answer the question or is more research needed?
