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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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. The pneumoperitoneum pressure range was set to 14-16 mm Hg..

Opioid analgesics were also standardised perioperatively. ...
According to traditional Chinese medicine theory, different acupoints have different effects [27]. Previous studies showed that EA stimulation at the bilateral Zusanli acupoints produces a greater hypoglycemic response than stimulation at the Zhongwan acupoint in normal rats [25, 28]. Also, using 15 Hz EA produces a better hypoglycemic effect than 2 Hz EA [29]. Therefore, this study used 15 Hz EA on the bilateral Zusanli acupoints to explore its effects on enhancing insulin sensitivity. The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether or not EA stimulation can improve insulin sensitivity by decreasing plasma FFAs levels in steroid background rats with insulin resistance.. Glucocorticoids are important in the etiology of insulin resistance through down-regulation of insulin signal proteins. In a dose-dependent manner, steroids cause desensitize the glucose transport system in muscle [30, 31]. In addition, glucocorticoid-related hyperglycemia is also dose dependent [32]. Although there is still ...
Magnetoencephalography(MEG) enables non-invasive recording of neuronal activity, with reconstruction methods providing estimates of underlying brain source locations and oscillatory dynamics from externally recorded neuromagetic fields. The aim of our study was to use MEG to determine the effect of manual acupuncture on neuronal oscillatory dynamics. A major problem in MEG investigations of manual acupuncture is the absence of onset times for each needle manipulation. Given that beam forming (spatialfiltering) analysisis not dependent upon stimulus-driven responses being phase locked to stimulus onset, we postulated that beamforming could reveal source locations and induced changes in neuronal activity during manual acupuncture. In a beamformer analysis, a two-minute period of manual acupuncture needle manipulation delivered to the ipsilateral right LI-4(Hegu) acupoint was contrasted with a two-minute baseline period. We considered oscillatory power changes in the theta(4-8Hz), alpha(8-13Hz), ...

Objective: To test whether electrical skin impedance at each of three acupuncture points (APs) is significantly lower than at nearby sites on the meridian (MP) and off the meridian (NP). Design: Two instruments-Prognos (MedPrevent GmbH, Waldershof, Germany), a constant-current (DC) device, and PT Probe (designed for this study), a 100-Hz sinusoidal-current (AC) device-were used to record electrical impedance at three APs (right Gallbladder 14, right Pericardium 8, and left Triple Energizer 1), and two control sites for each AP. Each AP, MP, and NP was measured four times in random order with each device. Setting: The study was conducted over a period of 4 days at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM). Subjects: Twenty (20) healthy adults (14 women and 6 men), all recruited from the OCOM student body and faculty, participated in the study. Results: The Prognos measurements had an intraclass correlation (ICC) 0.84 and coefficient of variation (CV) 0.43. The PT Probe had ICC 0.81 and CV 0.31.

The study included 36 college females randomized to acupressure group, 35 to control group.. Interventions: The acupressure group received auricular acupressure by seed-pressure method on liver (CO12), kidney (CO10), and endocrine (CO18) acupoints. The control group had a plain adhesive patch placed on the same acupoints with no seed attached. Acupressure protocol included massaging 15 times on ...
Acupuncture stimulation at specific points, or trigger points (TPs), elicits sensations called de-qi. De-qi sensations relate to the clinical efficacy of the treatment. However, it is neither clear whether de-qi sensations are associated with TPs, nor clear whether acupuncture effects on brain activity are associated with TPs or de-qi. We recorded cerebral hemodynamic responses during acupuncture stimulation at TPs and non-TPs by functional near-infrared spectroscopy. The acupuncture needle was inserted into both TPs and non-TPs within the right extensor muscle in the forearm. Typical acupuncture needle manipulation was conducted eight times for 15 s. The subjects pressed a button if they felt a de-qi sensation. We investigated how hemodynamic responses related to de-qi sensations induced at TPs and non-TPs. We observed that acupuncture stimulations producing de-qi sensations significantly decreased the Oxy-Hb concentration in the supplementary motor area (SMA), pre-supplementary motor area, ...

IVF is the process of fertilizing an egg with sperm in vitro, in glass. This is distinguished from IUI, intrauterine insemination, which is artificial insemination by introduction of semen into a females vagina or oviduct. Success rates for IVF are measured by favorable outcomes: pregnancies and liver births. Eggs are either donated by another woman or harvested from the potential mother-to-be for use in the procedure. Donor eggs are either fresh or thawed. In general, fresh donor eggs have a significantly higher live birth rate compared with thawed embryos.The acupuncture points applied prior to IVF were: DU-20, REN-6, ST-29, SP-8, P6, LIV-2. Auricular acupuncture was also applied. The left ear was needled at the Shenmen and Brain acupuncture points. The right ear was needled at the Uterus and Endocrine acupuncture points. After the embryo transfer, a different set of acupuncture points were applied. The body style points were: LI-4, SP-10, ST-36, SP-6, K-3. Auricular acupuncture to the left ...

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 ...

In the largest experiment on acupuncture for back pain to date, more than 1,100 patients were randomly assigned to receive either acupuncture, sham acupuncture or conventional therapy. For the sham acupuncture, needles were inserted, but not as deeply as for the real thing. The sham acupuncture also did not insert needles in traditional acupuncture points on the body and the needles were not manually moved and rotated.. After six months, patients answered questions about pain and functional ability and their scores determined how well each of the therapies worked. In the real acupuncture group, 47 percent of patients improved. In the sham acupuncture group, 44 percent did. In the usual care group, 27 percent got relief. ...
The objective was to evaluate whether acupuncture at term can influence cervical ripening and thus reduce the need for postdates induction. On their due dates 45 women were randomized into either an acupuncture group (25) or control group (20).. The women were then examined at two daily intervals for cervical length (measured with vaginal trasonography, cervical mucus and cervical stasis according to Bishops score). The acupuncture group also received acupuncture every two days at the acupuncture points Hegu LI 4 and Sanyinjiao Sp 6.. If women had not delivered after 10 days labour was induced by administering vaginal prostaglandin tablets. The time period from the womans due date to delivery was on average 5 days in the acupuncture group compared to 7.9 days in the control group. Labour was induced in 20 % of women in the acupuncture group compared to 35% in the control group. There were no differences between overall duration of labour and the first and second stage of labour. ...
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a medical system that dates back nearly 4,000 years. Auricular acupuncture was first mentioned around 500 B.C. in the Yellow Emperors Classic of Internal Medicine, which is the equivalent of the Bible for TCM practitioners. However, the method in which auricular acupuncture is practiced today is actually based upon discoveries that occurred in France in the 1950s. Modern auricular acupuncture is based upon the work done by Dr. Paul Nogier of France.. Auricular acupuncture is the stimulation of the external ear for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions. These health conditions may be taking place anywhere throughout the body. The stimulation of these acupuncture points can be done manually, with an acupuncture needle, a laser, magnets or ear seeds. Regardless of the means of stimulation, auricular acupuncture can be a very powerful addition to regular acupuncture treatments..

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 ...
If you have infertility associated with sperm abnormality, acupuncture can help to correct them. Current research provided evidence that acupuncture increased sperm concentration. As early as 1980s, there was a research on improvement of sperms after acupuncture treatment from Germany. 28 patients with subfertility participated the study. These patients received 10 acupuncture treatments for a period of three weeks. After acupuncture treatments, total sperm count, concentration and motility were improved significantly. They also evaluated subjective parameters by written psychological tests. The psychological test showed no change caused by acupuncture. This excluded that the effect of acupuncture on sperm quality was caused by placebo-mechanisms. Siterman S et al. studied 40 patients with low sperm count in two groups: acupuncture group and control group. They found that after 5 weeks acupuncture treatment sperm numbers were significantly increased compared to the control group. Pei J et al ...

Acupuncture is a means of encouraging the body to activate its own healing abilities to restore normal function to problem areas. This is done in modern times by inserting very fine needles to specific points on the body called acupuncture points. The oldest known acupuncture texts are from China and date from 3,000 years ago. However, acupuncture has expanded into other regions and many different approaches exist today, including Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese styles. In recent years, Western medicine has become interested in acupuncture. Acupuncture used alongside orthodox western medicine is sometimes called Medical Acupuncture. Western acupuncturists may use traditional Chinese acupuncture points, trigger points or a combination of points.
The purpose of this study is to select acupoints for acupuncture treatment of peripheral facial paralysis according to the temperature on the face of the patient detected by thermogram, to determine an objective acupoint selection method for acupuncture treatment. In the test group of 60 cases of facial paralysis, the infrared thermogram on the face was detected at the first visit, and then acupuncture was given at the acupoints on the affected side with a temperature difference of over 0.5 degrees C from the healthy side for one therapeutic course, and in each successive course the acupoints were re-determined according to the results of thermogram examination and were administrated till the end of the total therapeutic course, and 120 cases of the control group were treated with acupuncture at conventionally selected acupoints. The results showed that the cured and basically cured rate was 90.0% (54 cases) in the test group and 77.5% (93 cases) in the control group with a significant ...
Acupuncture is a form of medicine that helps the body heal itself by stimulating certain points on the body with very small sterile needles. It has been used for thousands of years in people and animals. It wasnt until the 1970s that veterinary acupuncture began in the United States. As with their own health care, people are more frequently seeking out alternatives to standard western medical treatments. Acupuncture is a way of bringing the body back into balance and allowing it to heal itself. Current medical science is able to demonstrate some of the ways acupuncture has its effects. Many acupuncture points are located in areas with a high density of free nerve endings, small arterioles, lymphatics and mast cells.. Some commonly asked questions from clients about acupuncture include:. Will it hurt my pet?. Acupuncture needles nearly as small as a hair and normally do not hurt. Occasionally an acupuncture point on the body can be sensitive and the patient may react as the site is stimulated ...
Acupuncture for the Knee. Acupuncture was applied to patients with total knee arthroplasty starting at day 7 following knee replacement surgery. Acupuncture was administered three times per week until day 21 when the treatment regime was discontinued. Range of motion improved, swelling measurably decreased and pain levels were significantly lower in the acupuncture study group than in the group that did not receive acupuncture therapy. As a result of these findings, the researchers conclude that acupuncture is effective in the post-acute phase of knee rehabilitation following total knee replacement surgery.. This study builds on earlier findings that acupuncture benefits the knee. In other recent research, investigators discovered that acupuncture reduces knee pain and increases range of motion for patients with osteoarthritis. An interesting study, it compared sham acupuncture with modern acupuncture and classical acupuncture techniques. The sham acupuncture, a form of simulated placebo ...

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 ...
A new pilot study indicates that treatments involving acupuncture, and acupressure paired with massage therapy, both result in anorexia nervosa patients feeling an increased sense of wellbeing.. "The pilot examined the feasibility of conducting a randomized controlled trial of acupuncture compared with an active control in an inpatient setting, to examine individuals experience of the interventions, clinical outcomes from the trial, and to integrate data to explain the trial findings," an abstract on www.pubmed.gov noted.. The subjects were 26 patients with anorexia nervosa. Treatment as usual was administered, and the intervention was delivered twice a week for the first three weeks, followed by weekly treatment for three weeks, according to the abstract. The acupuncture group received acupuncture at certain points. The control group received acupressure and massage. Acupressure involved consciously and gradually directing pressure to the center of the point being worked on. ...

The practice of acupuncture and moxibustion is based on the theory of meridians. According to this theory, qi (vital energy) and blood circulate in the body through a system of channels called meridians, connecting internal organs with external organs or tissues. By stimulating certain points of the body surface reached by meridians through needling or moxibustion, the flow of qi and blood can be regulated and diseases are thus treated. These stimulation points are called acupuncture points, or acupoints.. Acupoints reside along more than a dozen of major meridians. There are 12 pairs of regular meridians that are systematically distributed over both sides of the body, and two major extra meridians running along the midlines of the abdomen and back. Along these meridians more than three hundred acupoints are identified, each having its own therapeutic action. For example, the point Hegu (LI 4), located between the first and second metacarpal bones, can reduce pain in the head and mouth. The ...

Acupuncture for tension-type headache. Patients with tension-type headache suffer from episodes of pain which is typically bilateral (affects both sides of the head), pressing or tightening in quality, mild to moderate in intensity, and which does not worsen with routine physical activity. In most patients tension-type headache occurs infrequently and there is no need for further treatment beyond over-the-counter pain killers. In some patients, however, tension-type headache occurs on several days per month or even daily. Acupuncture is a therapy in which thin needles are inserted into the skin at defined points; it originates from China. Acupuncture is used in many countries for tension-type headache prophylaxis - that is, to reduce the frequency and intensity of tension-type headaches.. We reviewed 11 trials which investigated whether acupuncture is effective in the prophylaxis of tension-type headache. Two large trials investigating whether adding acupuncture to basic care (which usually ...

I have been treating patients for 20 years. I have a Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine. This is a three year degree. The classes included acupuncture, and Chinese herbal medicine treatment of disease. Most people see acupuncture as a pain treatment, but it also treats most internal diseases very effectively.. Acupuncture school would not have been on my radar if I had not had my own health issues. I had been in chronic pain, and I had seen multiple doctors. I was advised to just learn to live with the pain. I had neuritis in my arms, thoracic outlet syndrome, and inflammation in by elbows and wrists. This was a result of sitting at a desk all day in cramped quarters, and being unable to get up and walk around. The truth is, modern medicine does not really offer long lasting relief for most types of pain. I appreciate now that I was pushed into studying natural medicine.. I have learned a lot about how to treat pain since then. I have been treating patients for 20 years now. I know ...

THE WASHINGTON POST. Although some in the veterinary profession are skeptical, Americans growing fascination with alternative medicine is influencing the kind of care their pets get. Veterinarians once shunned because of their belief in therapies such as acupuncture and herbs are finding growing acceptance from peers and an eager reception from pet owners.. "Anything you can treat with Western medicine you can also treat holistically," said Jordan Kocen, a veterinarian who specializes in alternative therapies at SouthPaws in Fairfax, Va. Like their human counterparts, dogs, cats, and rabbits are all good candidates for alternative treatments, Kocen said. He has used acupuncture to help a dog suffering from arthritis, and homeopathy to treat a cats asthma.. The interest in alternative care is fueled in part by owners who have tried alternative therapies themselves. But sometimes, its the humans who end up taking a cue from their animals.

Clinical and experimental studies have demonstrated that acupuncture has a beneficial effect on lowering serum glucose levels.8,9. A typical acupuncture treatment involves needling 4-12 points and allowing the needles to remain in place for ∼10-30 min. Needles may be stimulated manually or by using a small electrical current. In addition, the practitioner may warm the points with moxibustion.. The number of treatments for chronic conditions such as diabetes ranges from 6 to 14 sessions. This may be followed by "tune up" sessions every 2-6 months.6 The cost for the initial session is about $75 -$150, with the follow-up visits costing $65-100 each. Third-party payment for complementary and alternative therapies varies from state to state. Some insurers, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, cover certain therapies for specific diagnoses only, i.e., ...

In the following part, I quote a research about acupuncture working on ovulation. Being able to ovulate is a big part of fertility, either getting pregnant naturally or going through IVF. I think that it might be encouraging for both practitioners and their patients who are fighting for their dreams.. By using human menopausal gonadotropin (HMG) and human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), fairly good clinical therapeutic efficacy has been obtained in the treatment of infertility. However, difficulties are brought about due to the ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) easily induced by these two drugs. Therefore, we attempted to use acupuncture instead of HCG in the induction of ovulation from 1989 to 1992, and satisfactory therapeutic effect was achieved as reported in the following.. General Data. Ten patients were hospitalized with confirmed diagnosis of infertility and totally observed for 11 menstrual cycles (one patient had recurrence of OHSS for 2 times). Their ages ranged from 27 to 30 ...

The findings go on to cite recommendations for EC information provision, and the drugs safety and efficacy in preventing unintended pregnancy. This legislation correctly locates EC, given the scientific evidence, as a means of preventing, but not terminating, a pregnancy. Previous Governor Bill Owens vetoed a similar bill in spring of 2004. When Ritter ran for the Governors seat, he included a platform of reducing unintended pregnancies through better family planning, better access to health care including birth control and emergency contraception, providing responsible sex education, and promoting adoption. Ritter also stated, "Improving education, health care and our economy - which will be the top priorities for my administration - will do more to improve the lives of children and reduce the number of abortions in our country than a divisive focus on punishing the women who find themselves turning to it as a solution." ...

Fourth-year students on morning rounds in the large animal hospital last Friday had an opportunity to see acupuncture in action. Dr. Jacob Mecham was treating a horse with a paralyzed arytenoid cartilage in her larynx by placing acupuncture needles in her neck. Student Melissa Flora helped by reading a list of designated locations from a treatment protocol to Dr. Mecham as he moved around the horse carefully twirling the needles into place.. Students Sarah Tremper and Whitney Madigan managed the scope that Dr. Mecham had inserted through the horses nose to view the larynx on a screen. "What was really neat about it is that they were running the endoscope so we could visualize the larynx while the acupuncture was happening to look for any immediate changes," says Flora.. The treatment protocol was the result of a study done by Dr. Shen Huisheng Xie of the Chi Institute where Dr. Mecham received his acupuncture training. Dr. Mecham recently completed 130 hours of lectures and labs, and passed a ...

Editor of Electroacupuncture: A practical manual and resource (Churchill Livingstone 2007).. David Mayor has had a long-term interest in energy-based medicine, including acupuncture. This led him to train first in biodynamic massage/psychotherapy and radionics in London, and then in Five Element acupuncture at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington (1980-82). Further Five Element study followed, as well as TCM with John and Angela Hicks of the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, and auricular acupuncture with the Association of Auriculotherapy.. In 1988 started using electroacupuncture (EA) and associated methods in his practice after a brief apprenticeship with Roger Rose and taking the home study course organised by Equinox (the Society for Biophysical Medicine). He has also read voraciously on the subject. In 1996, at the invitation of John and Angela Hicks, started teaching EA at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, then at other acupuncture colleges in ...
What is the History of Auriculotherapy?. The earliest written records of ear acupuncture date back to the Yellow Emperors Classic of Internal Medicine, a compilation of acupuncture procedures that were in practice in 500 BC. Within this extensive text that covers a variety of acupuncture treatments, there is mention of specific acupuncture points on the external ear for the relief of certain medical disorders. However, the manner in which auricular acupuncture is practiced today in China is actually based upon more recent discoveries that occurred in France in the 1950s. The Traditional Oriental Medicine practiced in ancient China included just a scattered array of acupoints on the auricle for just a few health problems, whereas the current practice of auricular acupuncture shows a more complete organization of ear reflex points that can be used to relieve many health problems. In the West, the earliest references to ear treatments were referred to in medical records from ancient Egypt, ...

Background Since 1950, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) cupping therapy has been applied as a formal modality in hospitals throughout China and elsewhere in the world. Based on a previous systematic literature review of clinical studies on cupping therapy, this study presents a thorough review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the therapeutic effect of cupping therapy. Method Six databases were searched for articles published through 2010. RCTs on cupping therapy for various diseases were included. Studies on cupping therapy combined with other TCM treatments versus non-TCM therapies were excluded. Results 135 RCTs published from 1992 through 2010 were identified. The studies were generally of low methodological quality. Diseases for which cupping therapy was commonly applied were herpes zoster, facial paralysis (Bell palsy), cough and dyspnea, acne, lumbar disc herniation, and cervical spondylosis. Wet cupping was used in most trials, followed by retained cupping, moving cupping,

Traditional Acupuncture works on the understanding that there is an energy flow, the Qi, or Chi, in the body. It is believed by Acupuncture professionals that if there is a blockage in this energy flow, it can create problems. These problems could range from sinus infections to common flu. The idea behind Acupuncture is to attempt to clear these blockages, allowing for balance in the body.. Myofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling, on the other hand, deals exclusively with the neuromuscular aspect of a muscle. Myofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling relieves pain by inserting filament needles directly into trigger points within the muscle. Sometimes it is enough to insert the needle to within half an inch of the Trigger Point to release it. This causes a local twitch response, which signals that the Trigger Point has been released. Myofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling is a scientifically proven method used to relieve muscle pain, nerve pain and referral pain.. Myofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling ...
Not really.. Many people shy away from acupuncture just due to "the fear of needles". However, unlike the injection needles everybody knows, acupuncture needles are very fine and smooth. The gauge of some needles we used in our clinic can be as little as 0.12 mm. Most people feel no pain when we insert the needles in the body.. When the needles are in the Acupuncture points, you may feel slightly sensation as either pressure, tightness, numbness or a sensation of heat. These sensation are called "De Qi" ("Feeling the Energy"). With the "De Qi" sensation, we can help adjust and re-balance the energy in your body.. Actually, most of our clients feel calming and relaxing during and after the treatment.. ...

Chengdu is the capital of Sichuan Province, in south-central china; it is the hometown of the Chinese doctor Michael Zeng, who is the director of the International Institute of Chinese Medicine, where I formerly taught, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Michael took nine of us to Chengdu, where for many years he practiced and taught Western medicine as well as TCM, to do an advanced clinical internship. In addition to giving an account of my experiences in Chengdu, I will discuss TCM and how modern-day China integrates its native healing system with Western medicine..

As a result of poor posture and excessive desk work, tightness at the shoulder & neck can cause various symptoms such as chronic headaches, decreased concentration, or irritability. The large muscle between the neck and the shoulder joint called the upper trapezius; this muscle is especially well treated with acupuncture. Some psychologists have shown that that the amount of muscle tension in the upper trapezius mirrors the emotional state of a person and consequently relaxing this muscle is helpful for relaxing the whole nervous system.. How does acupuncture treat neck and shoulder pain?. As explained above, most common neck and shoulder stiffness results from two factors: prolonged mechanical strain and emotional stress. The treatment approach with acupuncture should consider both aspects. With acupuncture the change is started by release stress and balancing the nervous system. After the nervous system activity is reduced, local neck and shoulder trigger points can be stimulated to allow the ...
Headaches are one of the most common medical complaints in America. This is due to a variety of causes, but the primary factor involved in chronic headaches is stress. Stress headaches (also called tension headaches) are reaching epidemic proportions in the modern world. Migraine and cluster headaches are also becoming more prevalent. Most people will either suck it up and live with the pain or will turn to conventional medicine to find some pain relief. While medications do seem to help with the pain of certain patterns, many people would prefer to avoid this route because of the cost and possibility of side effects.. Fortunately there are a great number of natural treatment options for headaches that can effectively eradicate the cause of the headaches or, at the very least, reduce the pain to a more tolerable level. Identifying the cause of headaches is one of the central challenges that all practitioners face. In particular, migraine patterns can be mysterious and spontaneous. They can be ...
Acupuncture for Plantar Fasciitis, by Mark Davis, BHSc (TCM).. Plantar fasciitis is sometimes referred to as "Runners Heel," it is an inflammation of the muscles on the underlying surface of the foot - the long, flat ligament that runs along the sole of the toes. It is one of the most common & painful foot problems which some people typically experience when getting out of bed in the mornings, or after being seated for prolonged periods.. Plantar fasciitis is usually caused from repetitive strain to the heel area, it is a common, and very persistent injury afflicting runners, walkers and hikers, and people who stand on hard surfaces like concrete & tiled surfaces for extended periods.. Although pain is typically felt between the arch and heel of the foot, plantar fasciitis pain often originates in the muscles of the lower legs and calf. When these muscles are tight and overstretched, it puts strain on the plantar fascia on the bottom of the foot. Being quite a stubborn condition, people can ...

This multicenter study assessed the feasibility of conducting a phase III trial of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) in patients with cancer bone pain recruited from palliative care services. Eligible patients received active and placebo TENS for 1 hour at site of pain in a randomized crossover design; median interval between applications 3 days. Responses assessed at 30 and 60 minutes included numerical and verbal ratings of pain at rest and on movement, and pain relief. Recruitment, tolerability, adverse events, and effectiveness of blinding were also evaluated. Twenty-four patients were randomised and 19 completed both applications. The intervention was well tolerated. Five patients withdrew: 3 due to deteriorating performance status, and 2 due to increased pain (1 each following active and placebo TENS). Confidence interval estimation around the differences in outcomes between active and placebo TENS suggests that TENS has the potential to decrease pain on movement more than ...

As part of our treatment modalities, MedCenter TMJ is pleased to incorporate Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS). This technology involves the use of controlled low voltage electrical impulses transmitted through the skin for relief of pain. TENS can reduce pain by inhibiting nociceptive receptors at the presynaptic dorsal horn of the spinal cord. Electrical stimulation through the skin preferentially activates low threshold myelinated nerve fibers, blocking transmission of pain signals from the unmyelinated fibers.. Indications for TENS therapy include:. ...
According to amputees, sensory feedback is amongst the most important features lacking from commercial prostheses. Although restoration of touch by means of implantable neural interfaces has been achieved, these approaches require surgical interventions, and their long-term usability still needs to be fully investigated. Here, we developed a non-invasive alternative which maintains some of the advantages of invasive approaches, such as a somatotopic sensory restitution scheme. We used transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) to induce referred sensations to the phantom hand of amputees. These sensations were characterized in four amputees over two weeks. Although the induced sensation was often paresthesia, the location corresponded to parts of the innervation regions of the median and ulnar nerves, and electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings confirmed the presence of appropriate responses in relevant cortical areas. Using these sensations as feedback during bidirectional prosthesis ...
