Science Trumps Pseudoscience: The Hidden Wonder of Connective Tissue

I was delighted to see four my of my colleagues from the University of Vermont College of Medicine Program on Integrative Health featured in this Vermont Public Television documentary on connective tissue and acupuncture. Featured are Helene Langevin, Robert Davis, Brian Erickson, and Janet Kahn.

Helene’s research is uncovering a scientific basis for acupuncture helping to move this beneficial modality into the mainstream. Robert has built upon this research to develop practical applications to improve clinical care.

This work demonstrates the practical and real benefit of science. It contrasts starkly with the pseudoscience I discussed in my previous post. I’ll take science any day.

Watch Acupuncture: A Connective Tale on PBS. See more from Emerging Science.
