The article mentions that an assistant professor Dr. Napadow, who has a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering and is also a licensed acupuncturist at Harvard Medical School is conducting research on how acupuncture effects the brain.
He also mentioned in the article that most doctors are on side with the use of acupuncture. It is nice to see acupuncture gaining more and more acceptance. After all if we could all work together for the greater good being the health of the patient who knows what we could achieve.
