I did it, but didn't really notice anything from it.

Tried acupuncture once for stress. It worked really well, actually. The thing was thought that although it didn't really hurt when they stuck in the needles initially, they came back about halfway through and moved each needle around a little to see it was still hitting the right spot. AND THAT HURT! Never went back.

Yeah, my sister tried it for really bad allergies/rashes. It worked for her. Not sure how though, and since it's a physical thing I don't think that could be chalked up to "all in your head". It'd be interesting to see what people think about it in terms of their SA.

I think it is mostly discredited now in the West.

Physical things can be all in the head too.

Was it ever even credited?

Maybe, but not physically evident things, such as rashes.
