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.

(2017) Laser Treatment on Acupuncture Points Improves Pain and Wrist Functionality in Patients Undergoing Rehabilitation Therapy after Wrist Bone Fracture. A Randomized, Controlled, Blinded Study.

'In both groups, treatment was applied to the following points: Ipsilateral- Yanggu (SI5), Yangchi (SJ4), Waiguan (SJ15), Yangxi (LI5), Daling (PC7); Bilateral- Hegu (LI4); Contralateral- Shenmail (VL62), Kulun (V60), Taixi (KID3). All of the patients underwent a total of 10 sessions, at a frequency of three times per week. They were evaluated using the VAS, the Patient-Rated Wrist Evaluation (PRWE), and wrist mobility ranges at the beginning of treatment, at the end of the fifth session, at the 10th session, and a week after the 10th session.

The patients treated with laser beam exposure on acupuncture points showed 44% reduction in pain and 33% of improvement in the functional status of the wrist compared with the control group. Application of laser beam on acupuncture points combined with active rehabilitation exercises show benefits in the rehabilitation of patients with a distal radius fracture managed with percutaneous pinning and a short cast.'
