Scientific studies on the effectiveness of acupuncture for treating medical conditions

Chronic pain treatment

The scientific study on acupuncture effectiveness in treating chronic pain, which you can find by following the link below, was an independent meta analysis study. A meta analysis is one of the highest quality scientific reviews available in science. This is because a meta analysis review the available scientific literature that includes many other studies and then summarises the conclusions into a single review study - otherwise known as a "Meta Analysis"

The conclusions of the meta analysis for acupuncture for chronic pain was as follows:

"Acupuncture is effective for the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal, headache, and osteoarthritis pain. Treatment effects of acupuncture persist over time and cannot be explained solely in terms of placebo effects. Referral for a course of acupuncture treatment is a reasonable option for a patient with chronic pain."

The above list is not fully comprehensive but as you can see acupuncture may be effective in treating a wide range of medical conditions.

If you have a medical condition listed above and you would like to receive acupuncture treatment it would be advised for you to first contact your medical doctor and discuss if acupuncture would be suitable for your condition. You may wish to follow the links given above to the scientific studies and print them off to show to your doctor first. Traditional western doctors may not be fully aware of the independent scientific research that validates the effectiveness of acupuncture treatment for many common medical conditions. Acupuncture could provide you with an effective treatment without the use of drugs which can have side effects.

Traditional Chinese medicine has been developed and refined over 2,200 years and offers a more natural alternative treatment to pharmaceutical-based Western medicine.

Qi Energy

Fundamentally the role of Chinese medicine is in the regulation and control of the vital force energy known as Qi. The word Qi actually means "vital energy" or "vital force" and is the energy that is used in traditional Chinese medicine to restore health. Qi energy is also the basis of Chinese martial arts. Qi energy must flow unimpeded and in Traditional Chinese medicine it is believed that a blockage of the flow of Qi can lead to illnesses.

"Qi" state in acupuncture is achieved when the patient has sensations to the needles on the one hand, and the practitioner also detects feedback of the needles on the other.

When the needles are in a state of Qi, the patient's acupuncture site may may feel hot, cool, itchy, or tender.

When the patient has a conscious reaction to the needles and, at the same time, the doctor's hand can also feel the needle body trembling this means the Qi state has been achieved.

If no Qi state is obtained after needling, the practitioner will not feel these sensations and the needles will feel loose, the needles will not have any feedback information. And likewise the patient will have no special sensation or reactions.

Energy types

There are two fundamental energy types which have distinct and opposite characteristics they are referred to as Yin and Yang energy. Understanding Yin and Yang energies is important in the effective treatment in Chinese medicine. There are two fundamental energies in the human body that are given a set of characteristics. For optimal health the Yin and Yang energies need to be balanced.

Yin Energy (female energy) characteristics include: Female/passive/negative energy, shaded, dampness/wetness, cold, disintegration.

Yang Energy (male energy) characteristics include: Masculine energy, active, positive, light, warmth, dryness

It is in balancing of the Yin and Yang energies in the human body that determines optimal health.

Traditional Chinese medicine is therefore fundamentally a vital human energy healing treatment. Where as traditional western medicine treats the symptoms of an illness Chinese medicine aims to treat the underlying causes of the illnesses which is believed to be an imbalance or blockage of vital Qi energy.

The role and efficacy of paediatric massage

The effects of paediatric massage are similar to those of traditional Chinese medicine, which are summarized as unblocking the meridians (energy nodes), harmonizing yin and yang, adjusting the internal organs, and helping to dispel negative energy.

1. Paediatric massage can improve the flow of Qi (life energy that flows through the body) and blood functions of the internal organs of the body, strengthening the immunity of children. Revitalizing Qi energy in children promotes blood health, and assist in the development of a healthy appetite, to ensure normal and healthy development of your child.

2. Paediatric massage can help to relieve children's illnesses and pains, and has good therapeutic effects on common paediatric diseases such as children's colds and fevers, coughs, abdominal pain, constipation, anorexia and stagnation, night crying and enuresis (bed wetting).

3. Paediatric massage can play a role in preventing diseases before they occur, and can improve children's resistance to diseases by adjusting their physique and aiding positive vitalizing energy which supports the immune system.

4. Paediatric massage has no side effects that are typically experienced by taking drugs. The treatment is painless and easily accepted by children.

The role and efficacy of cupping treatments

Cupping is the use of a special therapeutic glass jars as a tool to generate negative pressure by lighting a flame and pumping gas under the jar and then placing onto the skin. This causes suction in the skin to draw out toxins from the skin that can cause local stagnation of blood. The removal of toxins has the therapeutic effect of opening the meridians, moving Qi and enhancing blood flow. This relieves swelling and pain, dispelling cold energy, etc.

1. cupping is used to clear negative energy. Through cupping, the dampness and cold in the body can be penetrated through the skin tissue itself, thus eliminating the negative energy and strengthening the body.

2. cupping can unblock the meridians, because cupping therapy can release toxins on the surface of the body under negative pressure, which not only emits and dispels cold, but also adjusts the internal organs and meridians. This treatments encourages the body's positive Qi energy, so that the Qi and blood can flow smoothly. Tendons and joints are moistened, which is effective for local tissue damage, back pain and other general pain symptoms of the body.

3. Cupping can harmonize the internal organs, cupping therapy through the meridian points, local negative pressure attraction, so that the body surface acupuncture points to produce congestion, bruising and other changes, through the acupuncture points so that the meridians and internal organs connected to the internal organs, so as to treat a variety of internal diseases of the human body.

The role and efficacy of acupuncture

1. Unblocking the meridians

Many diseases in the human body are often caused by blockage of meridians. When the meridians are blocked, the body will experience swelling, numbness, pain and ecchymosis (bruising), etc.

Acupuncture can help unblock the meridians and enable the energy to flow smoothly, so that the Qi and blood can flow normally.

2. Nourishing the spleen and stomach

The spleen and stomach are the foundation for digestive health of the human body. If there is a problem with the digestive function of the body, it will also affect the health of the entire body.

In the human body the spleen likes dryness and dislikes dampness, so when it is invaded by dampness, it easily negatively affects the digestive function. For example, in summer, acupuncture can be used to strengthen the spleen and stomach, which can help us to avoid diarrhoea, abdominal pain and abdominal distension.

Yang acupuncture is used to disperse cold which occur in the dry season when respiratory diseases are more frequent, and neck, shoulder, waist and leg pain are also very common.

Acupuncture in summer can help stimulate the body's positive Qi and prevent and cure diseases.

3) Acupuncture for sciatica (back pain)

Sciatica is a relatively common condition that can be treated and improved by acupuncture, and it is also very effective. Sciatic nerve pain generally extends from the buttocks to the back of the thigh, and some patients extend to the outer thigh, so acupuncture can be adjusted to the patient's painful area. The pain can be adjusted in two ways:

1) according to the direction of the nerve or muscle to help adjust the local soft tissues, the pain will disappear.

2) according to the specific acupuncture points or meridians to help adjust, for example, when the problem is related to the factors of the foot three Yang meridian, or the Sun bladder meridian are related, you can stimulate the acupuncture points to achieve improvement, acupuncture points The possibility of sciatica relief will be more obvious when the soft tissues around the acupuncture points are relaxed by stimulation. Acupuncture for insomnia Insomnia is caused by a variety of reasons, and Chinese medicine practitioners need to identify each patient according to their different conditions.

4) Acupuncture for insomnia

Acupuncture is used mainly to harmonize yin and yang energy to calm the mind and tranquillize the spirit, and to nourish the heart and spleen.

For heart and gallbladder Qi deficiency, the treatment should be combined with moxibustion and more tonic methods; for yin deficiency and fire, only acupuncture can be used; for liver depression and fire, to calm the liver and lower the fire; for phlegm-heat disturbing the heart, to clear the phlegm and acupuncture for diarrhoea.

The main acupuncture points for insomnia are called Sishencong, Shenmen and Sanyinjiao, which need to be treated with precision.

The heart and spleen deficiency type manifests as difficulty in falling asleep, easy to wake up after falling asleep, dreamy, palpitations and forgetfulness, dizziness, weakness of the limbs, abdominal distension, loose stools, and a dull complexion, with optional heart acupoint, spleen acupoint, and foot sanli, etc.
