'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.

Conclusion: Subjects using acupressure at Li 11 for 4 weeks had improvement in pruritis and lichenification. Acupressure may prove to be an easily administered treatment, but larger-scale studies are needed to confirm these preliminary findings.

Summary points:-

1. Acupuncture has been reported to reduce the symptoms of atopic dermatitis.

2. We stested acupressure in an unblinded pilot RCT

3. Acupressure was significantly superior to no acupressure for several measures.
