Diagnosis of traditional Chinese medicine constitution by integrating indices of tongue, acoustic sound, and pulse
ConclusionsThis study identified indices that are associated with scores of abnormal constitutions. Indices having a larger correlation coefficient can be considered to have larger relative weight in determination of the corresponding constitution. The equations make it possible to predict constitution scores based on biological signals of the tongue, acoustic sound, and pulse. (Source: European Journal of Integrative Medicine)

Effect of Expectation on Short- and Long-Term Treatment Response to Acupuncture in Migraine Patients
ConclusionsCorrect calibration of a patient’s expectation, good mental status, and patients' perceptions of an acupuncturist's skills reduced the number of migraine days in patients treated with acupuncture.

Future research is needed to clarify whether interventions targeting modifiable non-specific factors prior to and during acupuncture treatment can result in better patient outcomes and future cost-savings.
