acupuncture & electro-shock therapy
Posted in the Science Forum
#1 Nov 29, 2012
Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles that have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin (source: Wikipedia).
Acupuncture is made to touch sensitive points in the human body and stimulate nerve impulses to relax and sensitize perceptions.
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), also well-known as electro-shock, is a psychiatric treatment in which seizures are electrically induced in anesthetized patients for therapeutic effect (source: Wikipedia).
Electro-shock therapy involves the stimulation and excitation of nerve impulses with direct electric signals and synthetic shocks meant to move the patient or subject to a state of sensitized reactivity or reflex hyperactivity.
Both acupuncture and electro-shock therapy are meant to sensitize a person's nerve-active centers and both have been explored metaphorically in the sensitization-themed Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" (1818) as an analogy of human reflexes.
"Frankenstein" (1818) was of course adapted into the perceptive Hollywood (USA) movie "Frankenstein" (1994).
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
