'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.

Lower Oesophageal Sphincter malfunction

(2017) Changes in Esophageal Motility after Acupuncture

'Results. Lower Oesophageal Sphincter (LES) resting pressure was significantly reduced after acupuncture (p = 0.015, Wilcoxon signed-rank test). Distal Latency (DL) was significantly increased after acupuncture (either Sham or ST36 (Zusanli)) as compared to basal measurement.

Conclusion. Our results showed that acupuncture on the digestive point decreases LES basal pressure.

Acupuncture may be an alternative treatment to spastic disorders of the LES.'
