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.

‘The Numeric Rating Scale, the Range of Motion, the Shoulder pain and disability index, EuroQuol 5 Dimensions, Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, and the Patient Global Impression of Change scores improved in both the experimental group and the sham group after 6 weeks, but the difference between the groups was not statistically significant.’
‘The treatment points were LI10 (Susamni), LI15 (Gyeonu), LI16 (Geogol), LU2 (Unmun), LU5 (Cheoktaek), SI9 (Gyeonjeong), SI11 (Cheonjong), TE14 (Gyeollyo), TE15 (Cheollyo), and SP19 (Hyunghyang) on the affected side. The acupoints were chosen based on the theory of meridians in traditional Oriental medicine. After inducing a de qi sensation, the needles were retained for 20 minutes. In the SA group, non-

Main outcome measures Pressure pain thresholds (PPTs) were measured at four acupoints—namely, Tianzong (SI 11), Jianliao (SJ 14), Jianyu (LI 15) and Jianzhen (SI 9), on the painful/non-
Results Analysis showed significantly lower PPT values at acupoints on the painful side compared with the non-
Conclusion The results suggest the presence of peripheral and central sensitisation at acupoints in participants with unilateral shoulder pain. There exists an obvious relationship among the three acupoints SJ 14, LI 15 and SI 9, which are usually chosen to treat shoulder pain. The results provide evidence for the selection of acupoints to treat shoulder pain by acupuncture.

'Methods. The treatment group received laser acupuncture, and the control group received sham laser acupuncture. Eleven acupuncture points (GB 21, LI 4, LI 11, LI 14, LI 15, LI 16, SI 9, SI 10, SI 11, TE 14, and TE 15) were irradiated using a gallium-
Results. Statistically significant improvements were observed in all parameters in the treatment group. All parameters of pain and functional status in the treatment group were significantly better than those in the control group at week 3.
Conclusions. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study that investigates the effect of laser acupuncture in SAIS. The positive results of the present study should lead to further laser acupuncture studies with combinations of different acupuncture points, at different wavelengths, and with long-
