Acupuncture needling

My wife was considering acupuncture for an allergy issue and was searching for a good local practitioner. My son and I were listening to her explain how the acupuncture process works since we knew nothing about it and she had limited knowledge but had done some research. She explained that there are meridians or acupuncture points that connect to various parts of the body through the insertion of small needles. For example, if you want to promote balance in your kidneys, or your heart, or your lymphatic system, you insert needles in the meridians that correspond to those areas. My concern was finding a competent practitioner in our small rural community, so I asked my wife how she knew that the local acupuncturist was any good. My wife assured me that the practitioner she was considering had a lot of positive online reviews. My son quickly followed up with, “How do you know that the acupuncturist didn’t just insert needles in the meridian of those patients leaving reviews that corresponds to the area of the body that stimulates good online reviews?” At that point we all lost it and laughed until our sides hurt.
