'Blending an ancient medical approach of mind and body with modern health'


Acupuncture Research






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.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Since 1982 I have used a particular five element acupuncture prescription or point protocol for traumatised people. At the British Acupuncture Council 2016 conference traditional acupuncturist Naji Malak presented his work on treating PTSD, where he frequently used this acupuncture point prescritption on every PTSD client he saw.

He has set up a charity 'Stand Easy' to treat PTSD particularly in war veterans. For more information visit his website www.standeasy.org.uk and a pdf of an interview he gave regarding his work.

However this treatment is not just for war veterans it can be used for many other people who have suffered some shock from an acute accident or repeated chronic trauma.
