Therefore, it's always exciting when there's new information out explaining the effects acupuncture has on our body. In this study from Wenjing Huang of Charité University Medical Center, Berlin, Germany, he mapped the effects of 18 acupuncture points on the brain. Through over 100 studies, the same certain areas of the brain were activated and deactivated upon the insertion of these 18 points. For instance, vision related acupuncture points GB 37 and UB60, both found around the ankle, activated vision centers of the brain. Just fascinating! I don't know exactly how acupuncture works quite yet, but I'm pretty sure within my lifetime we're going to have an answer.
