It is amazing to note that, rural folk especially in Kelantan, who observe the practice of inserting nails into common tropical fruit trees such as mangoes, rambutan, durian, manggis, etc. to ensure greater fertility and a higher yield of fruits, hardly realize that this practice is in reality a form of plant acupuncture.
In the case of ailing tress, some follow the practice of slicing off small sections of the bark of the trees to produce a form of shock which would actually trigger the healing process of nature in bringing out greater growth in flowers, leaves and roots.
The theory is very easy to understand, i.e. pain produce cure !
So, it is not surprising that folk wisdom attests to the efficacy of acupuncture treatment not only in human but also in animals and plants.
