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.

Efficacy of electrical pudendal nerve stimulation (EPNS) [Electroacupuncture to approx BL 30 and BL35 Meeting of Yang Huiyang] versus transvaginal electrical stimulation (TES) in treating female idiopathic urgency urinary incontinence (UUI).
‘Results:, The severity of symptoms and quality of life score on the UUI questionnaire (UUI total score) was 13 (7, 18.75) in group I and 11 (8, 16) in group II before treatment and decreased to 2 (0, 6.75) in group I (p<0.01) and 6.5 (3.25, 10.75) in group II (p<0.01) after the completion of treatment. At the end of treatment, complete symptom resolution occurred in 34 cases (42.5%), with a ≥50% symptom improvement rate of 70.1%, in group I and occurred in 1 cases (2.5%), with a ≥50% symptom improvement rate of 45.0%, in group II.

Conclusions EPNS is more effective than TES in treating drug-
Four sacrococcygeal points (figure 2) were selected for deep insertion of long acupuncture needles. The two upper points are located about 1 cm bilateral to the sacrococcygeal joint. On the upper points, a needle of 0.40 Х 100 mm was inserted perpendicularly to a depth of 80 to 90 mm to produce a sensation referred to the urethra or the anus by stimulating the main trunk of the Pudendal nerve. The locations of the two lower points are about 1 cm bilateral to the tip of the coccyx. On the lower points, a needle of 0.40 Х 100 or 125 mm was inserted obliquely towards the ischiorectal fossa to a depth of 90 to 110 m to produce a sensation referred to the urethra by stimulating the perineal nerve (figure 3).

‘Method: Using CV4, LR3, SP6. Results: The portion of nocturnal voiding volume decreased (g = −0965), the mean voiding volume increased (g = 0.690), and the voiding frequency decreased (g = −0.498) with moxibustion.
Conclusions: We suggest that moxibustion might be considered as an alternative for OAB management. Further studies employing placebo control, larger sample size, and longer observation period are warranted to
confirm the efficacy and safety of moxibustion.’
