Accupuncture treatment for cough and snot?

Had the vet out last week to check over my gelding. He had caught a flu virus that was going around the barn over a month ago and although he was fine in every other aspect, he couldn't seem to shake the cough and snotty nose. She specializes in accupuncture and asked to experiment on him. She "diagnosed" him using his accupressure points and found a "reaction" when she got to the points related to lungs and immune system I know, duh!). She then drew his own blood and injected it into those points. She said that hopefully it would boost his immune system to help him get over the lingering effects of the flu. The next day and every day following I watched his nose clear up and the cough diminish. And another difference I noticed is that he stopped circling. He had a habit of walking in circles ( about 90% of the time) in one direction to the point where he walks a deep rut into the ground. Now the only time he circles is in front of the gate when the food cart is coming.

I know that there may be a chance that the cough and snot had run their course and cleared up on their own.....but I feel as though there is a great possibility that the treatment he received helped him!

Has anyone else had experience with accupuncture?
