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.

(2018) Ganglion cyst of the wrist treated with electroacupuncture: a case report

'Conclusion: Ganglion cysts of the wrist are rather common benign connective tissue masses with variable treatment interventions. Electroacupuncture may be a novel and non-invasive conservative approach for the treatment of ganglion cysts. Further evaluation of the efficacy is warranted.

The patient underwent six electroacupuncture treatments over a four week period. During the treatment, six local needles were used (0.25 mm diameter, 40 mm length). Four local needles were inserted directly into the ganglion cyst. One single needle was inserted into Large Intestine-4 (LI-4), which is located on the dorsum of the hand, to the side of the midpoint of the second metacarpal bone, in the adductor pollicis muscle. Another needle was inserted into Large Intestine-11(LI-11), which is located between the lateral end of the cubital crease and the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. The positive pole (red lead in Figure 2) was attached to the needle at LI-11 at the elbow and was crossed with the negative pole (black lead in Figure 2) that was attached to the needle at LI-4. For the four needles inserted directly into the ganglion, the positive poles (red lead) were directly crossed with the negative poles (black lead). The needles were set to high frequency stimulation at 210 Hz (Figure 2). The channel intensity was increased to the patient tolerance in each session. '
