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.

A study of 90 women, divided into two groups, one receiving acupuncture and the other 'routine care', however the study does not tell us whether the women receiving acupuncture also received routine care aswell.
Preliminary data showed that after 3 weeks of acupuncture treatment (twice weekly) was more effective than observation / routine care alone in maintaining breastfeeding until the third month of the newborn's life.
The study sadly is scientifically limited because of the subjective measurement of breast milk production and that the healthcare staff involved were not 'blinded' to what was happening in the two different groups.
