Its so old its new

Spent most of the morning at the acupuncture clinic getting treatment for my trapped nerve which is still with me.

I am sure there is a queue of folk willing to stick needles in various parts of my anatomy but fortunately from me the acupuncturist kept her political views away from her needle use.

It does fascinate me that, for all our progress in medicine and constantly improving understanding of the body and how it works, a 6000 year old method using a concept (meridians) that still cannot be fully explained is still so effective and able to do things modern medicine still struggles with.
