'Blending an ancient medical approach of mind and body with modern health'


Acupuncture Research






We would like to share with you our personal view, beliefs and approach about the research that is presented on these pages.

We both value the research of modern science and the many developments that have been discovered.

We also value the depth of wisdom and knowledge of traditional and classical five element acupuncture, which integrates the many aspects of body and mind.

We acknowledge the information gained from research, and we endevaour to use it where appropriate when meeting the needs of an individual who is suffering in health.

We hope later to share more information on the five elements of acupuncture.

Ankylosing Spondylitis

(2015) Acupuncture Therapy versus Disease-modifying Antirheumatic Drugs (DMARDs) for the Treatment of Ankylosing Spondylitis --a Meta-analysis.


We analyzed data from 6 RCTs involving 541 participants. Acupuncture therapy could further improve the clinical effect and reduce ESR level compared to DMARDs; a combination of acupuncture and DMARDs could further improve clinical effect, occipital-wall distance, chest expansion, and finger-ground distance as compared to DMARDs treatment alone.

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings support that acupuncture therapy could be an option to relieve symptoms associated with AS. These results should be interpreted cautiously due to the generally poor methodological qualities of the included trials..'
