View Full Version : Looking for an acupuncture cite
29th December 2004, 10:55 AM
On a television program, and I think in the pages of the Skeptical Inquirer, I saw a reference to the notion that Chinese acupuncturists, before surgery, gave the patients "a little something" to relax them first.
Can anybody point me in the right direction to find this citation?

Are you talking about combining acupuncture with anesthesia and/or sedatives? Because that's fairly common.
Or are you talking about some kind of acupuncture-only surgery in which the acupuncturist slipped the subject a sedative, but under the table, as it were?
