Ear Acupuncture And The Modern Science Of TCM

Posted by Kenny Liang on 22/11/18 10:00 AM

In recent years, acupuncture has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for a number of health issues including nausea, vomiting, bodily pain, and many others. It may also be effective in treating a number of other problems. This ancient system of health is based on the body's natural energy flow known as chi or qi, and on the balance of the yin and yang energies. Auricular acupuncture works in much the same way as traditional acupuncture, except it focuses exclusively on the human ear. It may seem strange at first glance, but there are signs that auricular acupuncture is not only effective but that it also holds its own unique benefits.

EVIDENCE FOR ITS EFFICACY AND SAFETY in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Posted by Kenny Liang on 7/11/18 10:00 AM

Traditional Chinese medicine refers to a collection of health practices that originated in China, some of them over thousands of years ago. Most people have a passing familiarity with some of the practices, including acupuncture, cupping, tai chi, and qi gong. With such a diverse range of practices, and the modern interest in alternative medicines, traditional Chinese medicine has experienced a surge in popularity, but it may have you wondering if the excitement is justified and backed by science. Research into traditional Chinese medicinal practices is still relatively new, which means that while it is too early to form conclusions, there are promising studies demonstrating the efficacy of traditional Chinese medicine.

How Acupuncture Relieves Migraine Pain

Posted by Kenny Liang on 17/10/18 3:00 PM

A migraine is usually defined as a recurrent throbbing headache that often affects only one side of the head and possibly accompanied by nausea and blurry vision. According to HeadacheAustralia.org, 23% of households contain at least one migraine sufferer

A migraine is an interaction between the brain and the blood vessels that feed the brain that went a bit haywire. Some parts of the brain, overstimulated, started to secrete chemicals that affect the blood vessels near it.

Jing Luo and Acupuncture Poins

Posted by Kenny Liang on 19/09/18 3:00 PM

In the previous part, we have discussed how TCM views the internal organs (zang fu) as an interconnected system, for converting food, water, and air into the five vital substances.  In this part, we will discuss the jing luo, how they connect the organs to the rest of the body, and how acupuncture points, or "acupoints," are points along the jing luo, and how they can be stimulated to achieve clinical results.

You may sometimes see the term "meridian" used in place of jing luo. Meridian was a term used by French diplomatic scholar George Soulié de Morant who brought acupuncture to Europe in the early 1900s after spending years in China. We will be using the term jing luo, or "channel."
