IS IT JUST PLACEBO EFFECT?

Numerous laboratory studies in animals and clinical trials with high-quality designs have demonstrated that effects of acupuncture are mainly realized by regulation of physiological and pathological processes of the body. Though there are certain proportions of psychological actions, they may only possess a minor proportion among the entire scope of effects. One of most powerful evidences to exclude the placebo effect is the success of acupuncture anesthesia for livestock or veterinary acupuncture. Like in the human body, in many mammals, such as dogs, cats, and horses, there are acupuncture points that can be stimulated to treat certain pet disorders effectively.
