Classical loci in ACUPUNCTURE. They are main and collateral channels, regarded as a network of passages, through which vital energy (Qi) circulates and along which acupoints (ACUPUNCTURE POINTS) are distributed. The meridians are a series of 14 lines upon which more than 400 acupoints are located on the body. (The Pinyin Chinese-English Dictionary, p. 359; Dr. Wu Lancheng, Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Beijing)
Analgesia produced by the insertion of ACUPUNCTURE needles at certain ACUPUNCTURE POINTS on the body. This activates small myelinated nerve fibers in the muscle which transmit impulses to the spinal cord and then activate three centers - the spinal cord, midbrain and pituitary/hypothalamus - to produce analgesia.
The burning of a small, thimble sized, smoldering plug of dried leaves on the SKIN at an ACUPUNCTURE point. Usually the plugs contain leaves of MUGWORT or moxa.
Acupuncture therapy by inserting needles in the ear. It is used to control pain and for treating various ailments.
A form of acupuncture with electrical impulses passing through the needles to stimulate NERVE TISSUE. It can be used for ANALGESIA; ANESTHESIA; REHABILITATION; and treatment for diseases.
The use of specifically placed small electrodes to deliver electrical impulses across the SKIN to relieve PAIN. It is used less frequently to produce ANESTHESIA.

A single-blind, placebo-controlled trial of a simple acupuncture treatment in the cessation of smoking. (1/332)

BACKGROUND: Tobacco smoking is a major cause of preventable disease and premature death. Physicians should play an active role in the control of smoking by encouraging cessation and helping the smoker to choose the most suitable aid to cessation. AIM: To evaluate a simple, ear acupuncture treatment for the cessation of smoking. METHOD: Randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 78 currently smoking volunteers from the general public. Volunteers attended an acupuncture clinic in a general practice setting and were given a single treatment of electroacupuncture using two needles at either an active or a placebo site plus self-retained ear seeds for two weeks. The major outcome measure was biochemically validated total cessation of smoking at six months. RESULTS: A total of 12.5% of the active treatment group compared with 0% of the placebo group ceased smoking at six months (P = 0.055, 95% confidence interval -0.033 to 0.323). CONCLUSION: This simple ear electroacupuncture treatment was significantly more effective in helping volunteers to quit smoking than placebo treatment.  (+info)

The effect of acupuncture in chronic intractable epilepsy. (2/332)

We examined the effect of acupuncture on epileptic seizures in humans in a controlled clinical setting. Treatment was administered by two Chinese professors of acupuncture. Effect was measured by change in seizure frequency. Twenty-nine patients with chronic intractable epilepsy completed the study. They were randomized in two groups; 15 were given classical acupuncture and 14 were given sham acupuncture. There was a reduction in seizure frequency in both groups, which did not reach a level of statistical significance. There was also an increase in the number of seizure-free weeks in both groups, which reached a level of significance in the sham group. Thus, we have not been able to prove a beneficial effect of acupuncture in chronic intractable epilepsy.  (+info)

Biomechanical response to acupuncture needling in humans. (3/332)

During acupuncture treatments, acupuncture needles are manipulated to elicit the characteristic "de qi" reaction widely viewed as essential to acupuncture's therapeutic effect. De qi has a biomechanical component, "needle grasp," which we have quantified by measuring the force necessary to pull an acupuncture needle out of the skin (pullout force) in 60 human subjects. We hypothesized that pullout force is greater with both bidirectional needle rotation (BI) and unidirectional rotation (UNI) than no rotation (NO). Acupuncture needles were inserted, manipulated, and pulled out by using a computer-controlled acupuncture needling instrument at eight acupuncture points and eight control points. We found 167 and 52% increases in mean pullout force with UNI and BI, respectively, compared with NO (repeated-measures ANOVA, P < 0.001). Pullout force was on average 18% greater at acupuncture points than at control points (P < 0.001). Needle grasp is therefore a measurable biomechanical phenomenon associated with acupuncture needle manipulation.  (+info)

Electroacupuncture prophylaxis of postoperative nausea and vomiting following pediatric tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy. (4/332)

BACKGROUND: Electrical stimulation of acupuncture point P6 reduces the incidence of postoperative nausea or vomiting (PONV) in adult patients. However, acupressure, laser stimulation of P6, and acupuncture during anesthesia have not been effective for reducing PONV in the pediatric population. The authors studied the effect of electrical P6 acupuncture in awake pediatric patients who had undergone surgery associated with a high incidence of PONV. METHODS: Patients aged 4-18 yr undergoing tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy were randomly assigned to acupuncture, sham acupuncture, or control groups. Acupuncture needles at P6 and a neutral point were placed while patients were anesthetized, and low-frequency electrical stimulation was applied to these points for 20 min in the recovery room while the patients were awake (P6 Acu group). This treatment was compared with sham needles along the arm at acupuncture points not associated with antiemesis (sham group) and a no-needle control group. The arms were wrapped to prevent identification of treatment group, and anesthetic, analgesic, and surgical technique were standardized. Assessed outcomes were occurrence of nausea, occurrence and number of episodes of vomiting, time to vomiting, and use of antiemetic rescue medication. RESULTS: One hundred twenty patients were enrolled in the study, 40 per group. There were no differences in age, weight, sex, or opioid administration between groups. The PONV incidence was significantly lower with P6 acupuncture (25 of 40 or 63%; odds ratio, 0.135; number needed to treat, 3.3; P < 0.001) compared with controls (37 of 40 or 93%). Sham puncture had no effect on PONV (35 of 40 or 88%; P = not significant). Occurrence of nausea was significantly less in P6 Acu (24 of 40 or 60%; odds ratio, 0.121; P < 0.01), but not in the sham group (34 of 40 or 85%) compared with the control group (37 of 40 or 93%). Vomiting occurred in 25 of 40 or 63% in P6 Acu; 35 of 40 or 88% in the sham group, and 31 in 40 or 78% in the control group (P = not significant). Patients receiving sham puncture vomited significantly earlier (P < 0.02) and needed more rescue treatment (33 of 40 or 83%; odds ratio, 3.48; P < 0.02) compared with P6 Acu (23 of 40 or 58%) and the control group (24 of 40 or 60%). CONCLUSIONS: Perioperative P6 electroacupuncture in awake patients significantly reduced the occurrence of nausea compared with the sham and control groups, but it did not significantly reduce the incidence or number of episodes of emesis or the use of rescue antiemetics. Sham acupuncture may exacerbate the severity but not the incidence of emesis. The efficacy of P6 acupuncture for PONV prevention is similar to commonly used pharmacotherapies. Its appropriate role in prevention and treatment of PONV requires further study.  (+info)

Transcutaneous electrical stimulation of an auricular acupuncture point decreases anesthetic requirement. (5/332)

BACKGROUND: German anesthesiologists have long used transcutaneous electrical stimulation of an acupuncture point near the tragus to reduce anesthetic requirement in unblinded and uncontrolled trials. This is known as auricular electrically stimulated analgesia. The authors therefore tested the hypothesis that auricular electrically stimulated analgesia reduces anesthetic requirement. METHODS: In a randomized, double-blind, crossover trial, volunteers were anesthetized twice with desflurane. Electrical stimulation of an auricular acupuncture point in the vicinity of the tragus was used on 1 randomly assigned day, and no electrical stimulation of the same point was used on the other study day. Treatment consisted of bilateral electrical stimulation of the lateralization control point, 3 cm anterior to the tragus. The 10-mA current was set to 299 Hz on the dominant side of the face and to 149 Hz on the contralateral side. Anesthetic requirement was determined by the Dixon up-and-down method and was defined by the average desflurane concentration required to prevent purposeful movement of the extremities in response to noxious electrical stimulation. RESULTS: Ten men and 10 women completed the protocol. Electrical stimulation of the lateralization control point reduced anesthetic requirement by 11 +/- 7% (P < 0.001), with the reduction being similar in women and men. Women required more desflurane to prevent movement on the control day than the men (5.5 +/- 1.0 vs. 4.6 +/- 0.6 vol%; P = 0.028). CONCLUSION: This double-blinded trial with an objective outcome demonstrates that electrical stimulation of the lateralization control point significantly reduces anesthetic requirement.  (+info)

Moxibustion in breech version--a descriptive review. (6/332)

The management of breech presentation at term remains controversial. It appears logical that maternal and perinatal outcomes would be improved if breech presentation could be avoided. External cephalic version is considered a safe procedure if cases are selected appropriately and anaesthesia avoided. Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese method of treatment, which utilizes the heat generated by burning herbal preparations containing the plant Artemisia vulgaris to stimulate the acupuncture points. It is used for breech version with a reported success rate of 84.6% after 34 weeks gestation. Moxibustion technique is cheap, safe, simple, self-administered, non-invasive, painless and generally well tolerated. Although many studies give encouraging results regarding the use of moxibustion in inducing cephalic version of breech presentation, a definitive conclusion cannot be made as most involve small sample sizes and are not randomised. Moxibustion could be an extra option offered to women with breech presentation along with vaginal delivery, caesarean section and external cephalic version. This article discusses the possible role of moxibustion in correction of breech presentation in the hope that, some interest will be stimulated in what is a very interesting area for future research.  (+info)

Evidence of connective tissue involvement in acupuncture. (7/332)

Acupuncture needle manipulation gives rise to "needle grasp," a biomechanical phenomenon characterized by an increase in the force necessary to pull the needle out of the tissue (pullout force). This study investigates the hypothesis that winding of connective tissue, rather than muscle contraction, is the mechanism responsible for needle grasp. We performed 1) measurements of pullout force in humans with and without needle penetration of muscle; 2) measurements of pullout force in anesthetized rats, with and without needle rotation, followed by measurements of connective tissue volume surrounding the needle; 3) imaging of rat abdominal wall explants, with and without needle rotation, using ultrasound scanning acoustic microscopy. We found 1) no evidence that increased penetration of muscle results in greater pullout force than increased penetration of subcutaneous tissue; 2) that both pullout force and subcutaneous tissue volume were increased by needle rotation; 3) that increased periodic architectural order was present in subcutaneous tissue with rotation, compared with no rotation. These data support connective tissue winding as the mechanism responsible for the increase in pullout force induced by needle rotation. Winding may allow needle movements to deliver a mechanical signal into the tissue and may be key to acupuncture's therapeutic mechanism.  (+info)

Treatment of cough and dyspnea due to acute bronchitis by plaster for cough and dyspnea--a report of 735 cases. (8/332)

In the light of the theory of treating the internal disease externally, an externally used plaster for treating cough and dyspnea due to acute bronchitis (Ke Chuan Yi Tie Kang [symbol: see text]-[symbol: see text]) was successfully applied to 735 cases of acute bronchitis (the treatment group), with the other 423 cases treated with routine western drugs as controls. The results showed that the cure rate in the treatment group was significantly higher than that in the control group (P < 0.01); and that in the treatment group, the cure rate for the wind-cold type of acute bronchitis was significantly higher than that for the wind-heat type of acute bronchitis (P < 0.01).  (+info)

A standardised anaesthesia regimen was used. Phenobarbital sodium (0.1 g intrasmuscular) and atropine (0.5 mg intrasmuscular) were administered for premedication half an hour before entering the operating theatre. Standard monitors were used during the intraoperative period to measure pulse oxygen saturation, heart rate, blood pressure and end-tidal CO2 gas tension. Anaesthesia was induced with midazolam (0.06-0.10 mg/kg intravenous (IV)), fentanyl (0.004-0.008 mg/kg IV), cisatracurium (0.15-0.20 mg/kg IV) and etomidate (0.20-0.40 mg/kg IV). Anaesthesia was maintained with propofol (4-8 mg/kg/h IV), sevoflurane (0.8-2%, inspired concentration) and atracurium (5 mg/kg/h IV) after endotracheal intubation.

Abdominal Acupuncture (AA) is a new micro acupuncture method. The method is based on the use of three levels within our abdomen meridian system. By using needles to these abdominal acupuncture points many forms of disease can be treated.. The Abdominal Meridian System or AMS for short is a network of meridians dominated by the ShenQue system. The acupuncture point ShenQue is at the heart of AMS. AMS it self resembles the form of a tortoise and is usually referred to as such. When needles are placed on the points within AMS, one not only pays attention to the placement of the needle but also to the use of different depths of the needle. Practice has shown that when placing the needle on various depths results can drastically change.. The exceptionally beneficial results when using the AMS, could be explained as followed:. - During the embryonale stage the ShenQue point is at the centre of every microscopic regulation of the body ...

Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. In the United States, where practitioners incorporate healing traditions from China, Japan, Korea, and other countries, acupuncture is considered part of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).. Acupuncture improves the bodys functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites-commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may further enhance the effects. Other acupoint stimulation techniques include: manual massage, moxibustion or heat therapy, cupping, and the application of topical herbal medicines and linaments.. Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an ancient philosophy that describes the universe, and the body, in terms of two opposing forces: yin and yang. When these forces are in balance, the body is healthy. ...

At NMCI, our Acupuncturists have years of experience in providing treatment that relieves pain from injuries to the spine, extremities.. Acupuncture is the practice of placing very thin needles through the skin in specific locations of the body for the purpose of healing and relief of symptoms. This practice is several thousand years old and is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. As practiced today it is often combined with other interventions, such as sending a small current of electricity through the needles or burning herbs on the acupuncture points.. Acupuncture is based upon the Eastern philosophy of chi (also spelled qi), which is the Chinese term for the life force or vital energy. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) chi flows through pathways in the body known as meridians. Illness results from the flow of chi through the meridians being blocked, or by the two types of chi (yin and yang) being out of balance. Acupuncture is the practice of placing thin needles at acupuncture points, ...
Acupoints were, and still are today, used as diagnostic sites which reveal internal states of disease. When an organ system becaomes excess/deficient or dysfunctional, the acupoint related to that organ will show morphological changes. In practice, acupuncturists will observe any changes in the appearance of acupoints, including; color or any type of dermatological changes, as well as, any temperature differences. The acupuncturist will then palpate along the meridians checking the points for any changes in resistance. when there is no resistance, and the finger falls into the acupoint, its said to be deficient. When there is great resistance / the point is pushing back, there is excess. ...

All three active treatments reduced menstrual cycle pain rapidly (within an hour) with minimal side effects, but acupuncture point injection with vitamin K3 in SP6 was found to be optimal, producing a greater clinical and statistically significant reduction in pain. One to two units on the NRS for pain has been described as clinically significant by studies designed to evaluate unit scores with clinical improvement.24 ,25 Acupuncture point injection with vitamin K3 provided rapid relief of severe as well as moderate pain due to dysmenorrhoea. Effective treatment can be administered in a high-volume hospital clinic and may be especially useful to women whose pain is unmitigated by other methods. No differences between groups were found on long-term effects, but at the end of the study, participants in all active treatment groups endured significantly less pain over a reduced duration and reported fewer activity restrictions, fewer hours in bed and the consumption of fewer drugs for menstrual pain ...

To determine whether stimulating acupuncture points on the skin via electrical stimulation (rather than needles) could control symptoms in people with diabetic gastroparesis, researchers enrolled 12 people - four men and eight women, with an average age of 51 - in an eight-week study. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either four weeks of electrical stimulation of gastrointestinal-specific acupuncture points via watch-sized stimulators or four weeks of a sham (inactive) treatment. At the end of this period, the participants were switched to the alternate treatment for the remaining four weeks of the study. Active treatments involved placing stimulators at acupuncture points p6 (just above the wrist crease) and ST36 (on the front of the leg, just below the knee). As stated by study author Richard W. McCallum, MD, Those points, according to Chinese medicine, tap into control centers for nausea, heartburn, and regurgitation. They also are near nerves. Inactive treatments, for the ...
This is me undergoing my daily acu-laser treatment. (I had no idea I look so sci-fi.) I asked Dr. Rosenfarb if he could provide an overview of how his laser acupuncture treatment works. Heres what he had to say.. Laser Acupuncture works by using photo-biomodulation (laser-light impulses) at specific acupuncture points around the body. It is believed that the bodys organ meridians in the Chinese Meridians exist at a light frequency. We use Acu-laser or light needle as a non-invasive way to stimulate certain acupuncture points that may benefit vision and improve function.. My general theory is that acupuncture works more on the Qi (energy) and Blood (circulation) level. Acupuncture opens the blockages and increases the flow of Qi and Blood to the eyes (branch symptom) and is also used to correct/support the underlying cause (root issue). Acupuncture does not add anything or take away from the body, it just helps regulate function. If the eyes receive oxygen, nutrients, fluids, glucose for ...
Recently more studies were published showing that acupuncture activates brain in patients with Parkinsons disease and patients with mild cognitive impairment. For example, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a new technique that helps researcher and clinicians understand brain function. Using this technique, we can see how acupuncture stimulates the brain and alters brain function. There was a study in which brain activation in response to acupuncture in a group of 12 patients with Parkinsons disease was compared with a group of 12 healthy participants. Acupuncture was conducted on a specific acupoint, the right GB 34 (Yanglingquan), which is a frequently used acupoint for motor function treatment. The result has shown that Acupuncture stimulation on this acupoint activates the prefrontal cortex, precentral gyrus, and putamen in patients with PD; areas that are known to be impaired in patients with PD. Compared with healthy participants, patients with PD showed significantly higher brain ...

BREAST CANCER PATIENTS using ACUPUNCTURE for FATIGUE - 70% Gwen Wyatt, a professor with the College of Nursing said There are more than two million breast cancer survivors today, and persistent cancer-related fatigue is one of the most common and distressing symptoms and is associated with decreased quality of life, poor sleep quality and depression. Wyatt said pilot research has shown self-administered acupressure on ACUPUNCTURE POINTS can significantly decrease fatigue by as much as 70 percent in cancer survivors, as well as improve sleep quality. There are few treatment options for persistent cancer-related fatigue, and these costly treatments often require a trained practitioner or have unacceptable side effects, Wyatt said. On the other hand, self-administered acupressure on ACUPUNCTURE POINTS is nontoxic, inexpensive and requires minimal instruction. It appears to be a promising treatment for persistent fatigue.

In this study, we found that acupuncture ameliorated spatial learning and memory deficits and enhanced hippocampal LTP in a VD model. The therapeutic effects may be associated with dopamine system, as manifested by increased expression of dopamine, dopamine metabolites, and dopamine receptors in the hippocampus induced by acupuncture. Moreover, the D1/D5 receptor antagonist SCH23390 significantly abolished the benefits induced by acupuncture, supporting this contention.. VD is a progressive neurodegenerative disease, and the main symptom is cognition dysfunction.19 As an economic and convenient therapeutic method, acupuncture stimulation can be applied in relieving symptoms of VD.10,12 Because of the complexity of the disease, acupuncture point combination enhances the efficacy compared with single acupuncture point. Previous clinical studies selected point combination for the treatment of stroke and dementia.9,20,21 However, which point combination method is the most effective for the treatment ...
Acupuncture is an ancient traditional Chinese medicine which focuses on balancing energy pathways in the body to promote optimal health. According to this theory, an imbalance of these forces promotes disease by blocking pathways, or meridians, that allow the unrestricted flow of vital energy, or qi, throughout your body. Acupuncture aims to unblock your vital energy flow by targeting specific points on your body related to these meridians.. Acupuncture improves the bodys functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites, commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may further enhance the effects. Acupuncture points are thought to have certain electrical properties, which affect chemical neurotransmitters in the body. According to theories of traditional Chinese medicine, the human body ...

Acupuncture enhance immune action trigger the body resistance to fight against the diseases are increased. This effect is mediated by a raise in leucocyte count, antibody titer and gamma-globulins. Acupuncture is therefore, is very useful in combating infections and it is more so when the prolonged antibiotic therapy is warranted or in cases of resistance or hypersensitivity to antibiotic. This action is again specific to certain acupuncture points. Few acupuncture points such as Bahui, Hegu, Quichi are well known as having sedative effect. EEG taken during the treatment has shown a decrease in delta and theta wave activity. This effect is the basis of utilizing acupuncture for the treatment of anxiety states, nervous, restlessness, drug addicts, anti smoking, insomnia and other behavior disorders. It has been observed that a 20 to 30 minutes continuous manipulation of Taichong - Liv 3 of the toe alone reduces blood pressure from 200 / 110 mm Hg to 180 / 95 mm Hg which lasts for 3 to 4 days. ...
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning by inserting needles at very precise acupuncture points to cure disease or alleviate pain. Because acupuncture is an entire system of medicine and not just one specialty, it can conceivably be used to treat any disease or disorder. It is one of the most widely recognized and successful methods of alternative treatment in the world. Its effectiveness in treating a wide variety of disorders has been clinically proven. Not only is it safe, but it does not cause any of the toxic side effects that might be associated with ingesting many pharmaceuticals.. The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy (called meridians) run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others.. The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points; the acupuncture needles unblock the ...
Recent advances have indicated a complex interplay between the autonomic nervous system and the innate immune system. Targeting neural networks for the treatment of sepsis is being developed as a therapeutic strategy. Because electroacupuncture at select acupoints can modulate activities of the autonomic nervous system, we tested the hypothesis that electroacupuncture at specific acupoints could modulate systemic inflammatory responses and improve survival via its impact on the autonomic nervous system in a rat model of sepsis. ...

Acupuncture is an ancient form of alternative medicine that uses very tiny needles inserted at certain points in the body to relieve a person of dysfunction. There are 12 organs that lie in the visceral cavity and each one of those organs is represented in the body with a meridian or energy channel. Each energy channel has a specified number of points based on the organ channel it represents. The heart channel has only 9 points while the urinary bladder has 67. The energy within each point is often referred to as qi, pronounced chee, which is usually the sensation you feel once the needle is inserted. One way to better understand how each acupuncture point addresses an illness is to compare it to western medicine. In western medicine, a doctor may prescribe a medication to treat an illness. Similarly, in acupuncture each acupuncture point has its own prescription or action on the body. For instance, Urinary Bladder 67 is used to turn a malposition fetus or a breach baby. ...
When speaking with his patients, Tim Rhudy, a licensed acupuncturist in the department of pain management at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, explains that acupuncture diminishes pain by untying muscular straitjackets - releasing tight, spasmed, shortened muscles to their resting state.. It also helps regulate the bodys nervous system, which can stimulate the release of natural pain-fighting endorphins.. But wait…theres more: Acupuncture tells the body where the battle is. When you cut your hand, the body sends help to the injury site. Likewise, when a needle is inserted into an acupuncture point, the body pays special attention to the micro-trauma and emits healing factors, says Rhudy.. Acupuncture also alters the perception of pain, he says. Brain magnetic resonance imaging shows that deep needling of acupuncture points deactivates the part of the brain that deals with our perception of pain. This occurs with deep needling, as opposed to superficial needling, a needle is inserted as far ...

The category is for the listing of sites entirely, or mainly, concerned with the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in animals, to include acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and dietary recommendations. Veterinary Acupuncture is the treatment of animals by inserting acupuncture needles into soft tissues or muscle. Laser treatment to acupuncture points may also be considered a form of acupuncture, as is the use of moxibustion (heating needles by burning herbs), or injecting substances into acupuncture points. This category is intended for educative, service-oriented, non-commercial sites, although commercial sites with valuable educative content will be considered.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a comprehensive system of health care with clinical tradition dating back to A.D.600. It includes: acupuncture, herbal medicine, bodywork (cupping, moxa, gua sha), nutrition and exercise.. How does Chinese Medicine work:. The ancient Chinese recognized the vital energy behind all life forms called Qi (chi).. In developing an understanding of the prevention and cure of disease, these healing practitioners discovered that this energy flows along specific pathways called meridians. Each pathway is associated with a particular physiological system and internal organ. Disease is considered to arise due to a deficiency or imbalance of energy in the meridians and their associated physiological systems. Acupuncture points are specific locations along the meridians. Each point has a predictable effect upon body. An Acupuncturist chooses specific acupuncture points to rid the body of pain and disease by helping qi flow along these pathways uninhibited. Each ...
Acupoint catgut-embedding (ACE) therapy is a type of acupuncture surgery that combines concepts of traditional Chinese medicine with modern medical instruments. The therapy involves using a hypodermic needle and an acupuncture needle to embed 1-cm long catgut segments in an acupoint, enabling the catgut to perform long-term stimulation of the acupoint and achieve the effects of acupuncture treatment. Each therapy process requires numerous repetitions of the same steps, and each needle set can only be used to embed one catgut segment. Additionally, doctors must perform this surgical procedure by hand; no automatic auxiliary instrument has been developed to date. To address these problems, this paper proposes an innovative design of the first automatic ACE auxiliary instrument in the world. The instrument could assist doctors to complete the ACE steps. And it neither requires a battery or external electric power nor changes needles during therapy. The study first involved designing the mechanism ...
Violet laser acupuncture using a wavelength of 405 nm has been investigated in only a few scientific studies. The aim of this study was to provide selective evidence of a specific effect of violet laser acupuncture on mean cerebral blood flow velocity using a Doppler ultrasound technique. A transcranial Doppler sonography construction was developed especially for this study to monitor blood flow profiles in the basilar and middle cerebral arteries simultaneously and continuously. The acupuncture point Dazhui on the upper back was tested in a controlled study with 10 healthy volunteers (24.9 ± 3.3 years, mean age ± SD; 5 females, 5 males). In addition to an on/off-effect, violet laser stimulation increased the blood flow velocity in the basilar artery significantly (p , 0.001) compared with the reference interval before laser acupuncture. In the middle cerebral artery, only minimal, nonsignificant changes in blood flow velocity were seen. Metal needle acupuncture at the same point intensified ...

BACKGROUND: Malnutrition remains a severe problem in the recovery of critically ill patients and leads to increased in-hospital morbidity and in-hospital stay. Even though early enteral nutrition has been shown to improve overall patient outcomes in the intensive care unit (ICU), tubefeed administration is often complicated by delayed gastric emptying and gastroesophageal reflux. Acupuncture has been successfully used in the treatment and prevention of perioperative nausea and vomiting. In this study we evaluated whether acupuncture can improve gastric emptying in comparison with standard promotility drugs in critically ill patients receiving enteral feeding. METHODS: Thirty mechanically ventilated neurosurgical ICU patients with delayed gastric emptying, defined as a gastric residual volume (GRV) ,500 mL for ≥ 2 days, were prospectively and randomly assigned to either the acupoint stimulation group (ASG; bilateral transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation at Neiguan, PC-6) or the ...

The most effective way to lose weight or boost your metabolism is to eat a healthy diet full of nutritious fruits and vegetables and free of junk food and preservatives, drink plenty of water and get an adequate amount of exercise to keep your body healthy and strong. If youre already accustomed to a healthy lifestyle and youre looking for another way to get your metabolism moving a little more quickly, you might benefit from acupuncture.. Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. Its based on the theory that energy (chi or qi) flows through and around the body along pathways called meridians. Acupuncturists believe that illness occurs when something either blocks your chi or causes it to become unbalanced. By helping to increase the flow of chi throughout the body, the organs can function more efficiently and youll be able to absorb a higher amount of nutrients from the food you eat. ...

Moxibustion is more than just using moxa! The word we commonly translate as moxibustion is jiu (灸) in Chinese, and this word actually refers to a wide variety of heat therapies. One method of moxibustion that doesnt burn mugwort leaf is San Fu Moxibustion (三伏灸).. San Fu Moxibusion is a classical method of preventive healthcare that dates back about 300 years in China. During the three most Yang days of the year (chosen based on the traditional Chinese calendar), physicians applied a special type of mustard plaster made with additional Chinese herbs to special acupuncture points on the back (the Back Shu Points). Plasters are then left in place for several hours, and the treatment repeated each of those 3 days. Originally this method was used to treat asthma or other chronic respiratory tract problems such as coughing, sinusitis, etc… It was also traditionally though to prevent colds and flus (and other upper respiratory tract problems) in the following winter. San Fu Moxibustion is ...

MicroAcupuncture™ uses 48 acupuncture points located in the hands and feet that are allegedly non-traditional acupuncture points. These newly discovered points are said not to be associated with any other acupuncture system, according to their discoverer Freddy Dahlgren, D.Sc., D.Ac., M.Ac.F., M.D. (In some languages, those letters spell BEWARE.) The M.D. was apparently bought from Lord Pandit Prof. Dr. Sir Anton Jayasuriya (1930-2005) of Sri Lanka. Jayasuriya created Medicina Alternativa International in Sri Lanka and claimed to be affiliated with The Open International University [presumably to be confused with the Open University of Sri Lanka]. He sold diplomas for various fields. I have a copy of his charge list for 1962. For $3,750 USD one could buy any of the following degrees: M.D. (M.A.), M.D. (T.M.), Dr. Ac., or Ph.D. These letters stand for Doctor of Medicine (Alternativa Medicina), Doctor of Medicine (Traditional Medicine), Doctor of Acupuncture, and Doctor of Philosophy. ...
