    Any links to their results? statistics? anything? I'm always interested when a new treatment method starts to show results for something like fibromyalgia.

    I'd like to see them too, why don't you just post them. Does the study also establish that acupuncture shows better results than a placebo treatment, or even no treatment at all?

    I'll definitely be googling this. Always having had a knee-jerk reaction to any talk related to "meridians", I'd be down for having my preconceptions shattered...it makes life a **** of a lot more interesting.

    I PM'd because I didn't want to derail the thread and because there is information that I don't wish to disclose publicly.

    Sorry that you have not been exposed to people that can show this.

    You are more than welcome to come visit anytime.

    Low level martial arts? Kung fu is a high level martial art?
    My theory would be either that you have not actually developed your bones to a significant degree, or you have not noticed/can't see the detrimental effects.
    For the record, I think bone conditioning works, I just question its usefulness as far as being a training method for fighting.

    In reference to the data, he is exposed to some interesting raw data about which there is not yet a study. Nothing truly conclusive yet, but definitely interesting. I imagine we will see a study at some point in the near future. Just relax folks.
