'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.

Retinitis Pigmentosa

(2017) Can acupuncture therapy help patients with retinitis-pigmentosa? Brief report

'In a prospective study, 23 RP subjects received ten sessions of body-acupuncture. Pre and post-treatment evaluations included best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), near visual acuity (NVA), and static 30-2 perimetry.

Results. UCVA, BCVA, and NVA improvements after acupuncture therapy were statistically and clinically significant (P = 0.048, P = 0.0005, P = 0.002, respectively). The changes of mean foveal threshold (MFT) and mean deviation (MD) were statistically significant (P = 0.031, P = 0.02). There were no statistically significant difference between different age group and genders. Subjective symptoms of improvement were seen in most of cases.

Conclusion. Future studies are needed to show the effect of acupuncture therapy on visual function of patients with RP.
