Scientifically speaking, yes it does. There are a lot of self-appointed parenting experts who are very upset about that study, but endorphins are a powerful thing and their data is sound, so there isn't much they can do aside from mischaracterize it as abuse.

I have been spanked and when I was spanked it was not abuse and my parents were not trying to kill me. My parents were the nicest people in the world until you disrespected them or broke a rule. They were redirecting my focus and asserting who was in control. However there is a way to spank, you do not spank your child and then give candy, you just defeated the purpose. A spanking and a conversation about the behavior was the method in my home.
As the Bible tells us: "He who spareth the rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him correcteth him betimes" (Proverbs 13:24) and "Withhold not correction from a child: for if thou strike him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and deliver his soul from hell." (Proverbs 23:13-14)
