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) Acupuncture for symptom reduction in myeloma patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: A randomized, sham-controlled trial.

'Results: Among 60 participants, symptoms that are significantly reduced by true acupuncture more than sham acupuncture at 15 days include the following: nausea, lack of appetite, and drowsiness. Patients receiving sham acupuncture were more likely to increase use of pain medication post-transplantation. Acupuncture was well tolerated with few attributable adverse events.

Conclusions: True acupuncture may prevent escalation of symptoms including nausea, lack of appetite, and drowsiness experienced by patients undergoing autologous Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT), and to reduce the use of pain medications. These findings need to be confirmed in a future definitive study.'
