Acupuncture, is it a Placebo or Proven Effect?

This actually happens to me more than you would think, where a patient comes in and receives a beneficial treatment of Acupuncture, and then gives credit to their pain going away to a "Placebo effect". They believed that the pain would go away and magically it did, while the Acupuncture I had just performed on them could not have possibly caused that same effect. Don't get me wrong, I do believe that you need to have an open mind with positive thoughts when coming in to a treatment for it to be fully successful, but I also believe that there is hard evidence to back up why Acupuncture works. Here are my TOP 5 RESEARCH STUDIES & TRIALS of how Science has proven that Acupuncture is much more than just a Placebo effect.
