Let me get this straight-so when Kissinger and Nixon were in China and Kissinger had his appendix removed by acupuncture and no anesthia (these are all documented historical facts) that could have been done with a placebo or a sugar pill??
Come on-acupuncture is real sir!

It was the treatment of PAIN afterward that was done through acupuncture, and even for THAT, Reston said that all it did was distract him from the pain from surgery. He told Kissinger this and Kissinger raved about acupuncture to Nixon, who then instituted a research program into acupuncture.
This took me all of five minutes to find out online. Why didn't you bother to check what you were saying?
It was a Placebo comment, Intended to relieve the worry away from the purchase of this item.

I have a 5800.00 unit in my closet that does the exact same thing as this belt but it's fancier. Has timers and 5 sections and you can set it to go back and fourth and you look like spider man got drunk and attacked you when you use it.
It was never prescribed to me for pain, I didn't even pay for it, workermans comp did. It was prescribed for Muscle stimulation for the prevention of Atrophy while recovering from sugery.
This type of unit was brought out in the 70's by Bruce Lee if I remember correctly -
To develop abdominal Muscles.
