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.

Franconi G, Manni L, Schröder S, Marchetti P, Robinson N. (2013) A systematic review of experimental and clinical acupuncture in chemotherapy-
Conclusion. The data suggest that acupuncture has a positive effect on CIPN. The encouraging results of this pilot study justify a randomised controlled trial of acupuncture in CIPN on the basis of nerve conduction studies (NCS).

The results are comparable to previous studies in diabetic neuropathy and peripheral neuropathy of undefined aetiology. These findings are of special significance since peripheral neuroapthy is otherwise almost untreatable but seems to respond to treatment by acupuncture." Each patient received a standard 10 -
