Calgary, Canada, October 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- A practical experience at Active Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre proves that acupuncture improves memory, test performance, and reduces anxiety.
Dr. Laura MacFarlane conducted an experiment with 10 People. Half of them received acupuncture and half did not; and the placebo effect was controlled. Then all the persons took a computerized test of Working Memory- the Automated Operation Span Task. Tests of Working Memory assess how well a subject can keep items in the back of their mind (memory) while performing tasks in the front of their mind (processing). Subjects who received acupuncture scored 9.5% higher on the measure of keeping items in memory and committed 36% fewer processing errors.
To assess anxiety, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory was administered before and after the treatment. Subjects who received acupuncture reported significantly less anxiety than those who did not receive it. This technique may be especially helpful for those people who suffer with test anxiety. But even those who were not anxious still had performance improved by the acupuncture. So this technique can help everyone.
