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 hope later to share more information on the five elements of acupuncture.

‘Results. Five trials involving 181 patients were reviewed. Significant pain reduction was observed after 6–8 weeks of acupuncture treatment. Patients receiving acupuncture showed a significant decrease in the Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) worst pain score (weighted mean difference [WMD]: −3.81, 95% confidence interval [CI]: −5.15 to −2.47) and the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) pain score (WMD: −130.77, 95% CI: −230.31 to −31.22) after 6–8 weeks of treatment.
