There are numerous studies that demonstrate the truth of mind-body connection. Whether we speak in scientific terminology such as limbic system of the brain and nervous system or in terminology of ancient systems such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Shamanism, etc., the fact is that how we feel, and what we think, have an effect on our bodies and visa versa.  Acupuncture attends to mind-body insofar as each Organ System and Meridian Pathway not only has impact on the physical body, it also has beneficial impact on the Parasympathetic Nervous System.
