Acupuncture in the battlefield? Some expert swear it's possible
Lt. Col. Michael Kiefer, a German Air Force flight surgeon, gives battlefield acupuncture to Maj. Tanja Drews, also a German Air Force flight surgeon, during an aerospace medicine conference on Ramstein Air Base, Germany, March 21, 2017. Although battlefield acupuncture originated as a method to give quick pain relief to troops in battle, the practice made its way into non-combat environments.
