(PRWEB UK) 21 March 2013

New MRI research has demonstrated quantitative objective evidence that acupuncture needle stimulation in human subjects increases signal strength in the auditory cortex of the brain.

Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shenzhen Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine and South China University of Technology noted that manual manipulation of acupuncture point ‘SJ3’ causes brain hemodynamic responses in the auditory cortex. The brain’s response is accompanied by an increase in the auditory cortex signal strength.

A spokesperson from Hidden Hearing said:
