So, what do you think? Are Qigong and Neigong important to martial arts practice?
How do you conceptualize these concepts; for example, do you see it as ancient nomenclature for things that can be correlated/explained with modern physiology or medicine?
Or do you view them as metaphysical, objectively incorrect practices.
If you do believe in their worth, how much time/focus do you place on these things?
So, your entire posts is a derail.

Oh and since you'll inevitably complain:
Your post reads like it came after perusing the above thread, where Acupuncture and other CMA was called into question.

Point of order what is the relationship of qigong and neigong to acupuncture?

Depends on the teacher. Basically, they follow the same meridians and chi/breathing belief systems. Acupuncture used needles instead of stretching and breathing exercises.

Any evidence that acupuncture works on anything other than pain management?

You're derailing a derail, and asking for evidence, in trollshido...
...so my answer is, "Why yes; sticking needles in people can also increase pain, and can in fact be quite injurious."

Acupuncture works, we use it here in the surgery department instead of anesthesia sometimes.
