Expert North Carolina Acupuncturist Says Acupuncture Is Science, Not Just A Placebo Effect
Seasoned acupuncturists and naturopathic healthcare providers Advanced Healthcare Solutions defends acupuncture against charges of being “just a placebo effect,” investigating the scientific effectiveness of the practice as well as untangling what exactly a placebo effect is.
Raleigh, North Carolina — Raleigh’s favorite acupuncture and holistic health center, Advanced Healthcare Solutions, published a new article entitled “Acupuncture & The Placebo Effect—Are the Needles Necessary?” In the article, they state that, though even needle-free acupuncture has been proven effective due to the placebo effect, real acupuncture is more effective to treat a variety of conditions than “sham” acupuncture, as well as certain Western medical practices.
Director of Medical Services Marc S. Cutler, D.O.M. (NM), L.Ac, Dipl.Ac. says, “More and more scientific studies are confirming what we already know to be true: acupuncture works. And yet some people still claim that the very real benefits are just a placebo effect. It’s time to unpack what that really means and explain why the benefits of acupuncture come not just from the placebo effect, but from the actual practice of acupuncture.”
Marc S. Cutler, D.O.M. (NM), L.Ac, Dipl.Ac., has over 25 years of experience helping patients on their path to wellness. As the former president of the North Carolina Acupuncture Association and professor at the Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Marc has worked to advance the field and give the best-possible care to his many patients. Having worked with renowned doctors such as Dr. Li-Chun Huang, Dr. Jishun Hao, and Dr. Richard Tan, Marc has a rigorous level of expertise in auricular medicine and scalp acupuncture for neurological diseases, with additional specialization in post-stroke recovery, infertility, sports therapies, pain reduction, immune deficiency illnesses, sleeping disorders, digestive problems, and more.
