This video is a nice short one where an allopathic doctor gives acupuncture a fair try on himself. Includes a brief section on MRI evaluations of acupuncture.

So this very interesting article describes how some MRI studies provide confirming evidence for some of the central ideas of acupuncture. In particular, that the side a point is treated matters, and that a point located on a particular meridian tends to influence the related organ. It looks like there’s a lot of potential for MRI studies on acupuncture to give us interesting and valuable information.
