'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) Acupuncture in Conjunction with Drug Therapy in the Treatment of Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia

'The authors found that the combination of drug therapy and acupuncture yielded a better clinical outcome than if acupuncture or drug therapy was solely used.'

'The acupuncture points used for glossopharyngeal

neuralgia were LI 4, LI 1, ST 44, PE 9, CV 22, and CV 23.'

This trial is about symptomatic acupuncture and not holistic acupuncture and the authors do not specify what needle technique they used so this is a difficult trial to replicate.
