Here is my theory about why acupunture works: For up to 30 minutes at a time (back, then front) you have to remain perfectly still while lying on a padded table. Tinkly music is playing softly in this darkened room. You have some of your clothes off. Your central nervous system begins to power down and you doze off. Soon you are dreaming of your daughter's laughing face.
