    Nerves wrecked by needle pain cure

    http://www.news.com.au/perthnow/stor...005370,00.html
    WEST Australian research could help unravel the mystery of how acupuncture works, suggesting it "destroys" nerves rather than stimulating them.
    Morry Silberstein, of WA's Curtin University of Technology, has been conducting research using electrical circuits to replicate nerve systems.

    "For years people have believed that pricking the skin with a needle stimulates the nerves, but in actual fact it divides and destroys them," Dr Silberstein said.
    "It's like disrupting the nerves and numbing them so the sensation of pain goes away.
