It is commonly used to treat horses

The fact that TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) seems like "woo" in the west is not a valid reason to dismiss it. Just because Western science can't explain a biological process right now does not mean that it should be dismissed out-of-hand as a placebo.
We may find an explanation in future.

Studies have shown that sham acupuncture is as effective as real acupuncture.

Sham acupuncture makes it feel like a needle, but there is no needle. Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I hate running. I might run away from a cougar or bear....mmmnnnn....that's about it.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
