'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.

(2017) Effectiveness of acupuncture in the management of cervical spondylosis: a meta-analysis.

'In conclusion, acupuncture therapy alone can provide cure and total effectiveness rates of 33% and 87%, respectively, but acupuncture with additional therapies can improve the cure and total effectiveness rates to 53% and 94%, respectively. Age inversely affects efficacy and the number of additional therapies improves the efficacy.'

(2017) Transverse striation needling for 30 cases of cervical spondylosis.

Method. 'Thirty patients were diagnosed with cervical spondylosis. Transverse striation needling, i.e. transverse insertion into the transverse striation of the cervical vertebra, was adopted for the 30 patients, and conventional acupuncture at Fēngchí ( GB 20, bilateral), Jiānjľng ( GB 21, bilateral) and Jiānzhōngshù ( SI 15, bilateral) was combined. The treatment was conducted for once a day, twice a week, and 6 times were needed in total. Follow-up visit was performed two months after the treatment.

Result. Among the 30 patients, the markedly effective rate was 70.0% (21/30), effective rate was 30.0% (9/30), and the total effective rate was 100.0%. There was no relapse during two months after the treatment.'
