Track 1: Acupuncture Techniques

In Acupuncture very thin needles, slightly thicker than a human hair, are inserted into acupuncture points. The objective of acupuncture as explained earlier is to regulate and normalize the flow of the Chi, so that the Yin and the Yang return to a state of dynamic equilibrium. Acupuncture aims to relieve symptoms by curing the disease. The choice of acupuncture points to be used is the most crucial part of the treatment. The acupuncturist must know the function of each acupuncture point and its interaction with other acupuncture points. He can then plan the treatment to eliminate obstructions in the flow of Chi and to balance the Yin and Yang. After the acupuncturist has examined the patient and reached a diagnosis, he decides how the patient should be treated.

Track 2: Acupuncture Related Practices

Acupressure, a non-invasive form of acupuncture, uses physical pressure applied to acupressure points by the hand, elbow, or with various devices. Tui Na is a Traditional Chinese Medicine i.e. a TCM method of attempting to stimulate the flow of Qi by various bare-handed techniques that do not involve needles. Electropuncture is a form of acupuncture in which acupuncture needles are attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses. Sonopuncture is a stimulation of the body similar to acupuncture using sound instead of needles. This may be done using purpose-built transducers to direct a narrow ultrasound beam to a depth of 6–8 centimetres at acupuncture meridian points on the body. Alternatively, tuning forks or other sound emitting devices are used. Auriculotherapy, commonly known as ear acupuncture or auricular acupuncture is considered to date back to ancient China which involves inserting needles to stimulate points on the outer ear. Scalp acupuncture, developed in Japan, is based on reflexological considerations regarding the scalp area.

Track 4: Acupuncture & Neurology

Acupuncture often used with electrical stimulation in treating nerve conditions, is very effective at relieving the pain and restoring normal function.  There are several ways this is thought to work, all of which have been carefully researched mainly acupuncture stimulates the brain to release chemicals  such as neurotransmitters and opioids into the body that reduce sensitivity to pain and normalize the nervous system or acupuncture with electrical stimulation interrupts the pain signal allowing the nerve to calm down thereby reducing pain. Acupuncture promotes actual healing by altering the body's electrical system to allow the transfer of material and electrical energy between normal and injured tissue thereby reducing the amount of recovery time.

Track 5: Acupuncture & Orthopaedics

Acupuncture is used as a "physical therapy" to release the muscular, skeletal and emotional holding patterns that are the root causes of tension, pain, postural asymmetries, the precursors of injury, and the residues of internal disease. The aim of treatment is to create a harmonious balance within the musculoskeletal and meridian systems that generates healing and promotes overall health and well-being.

Track 7: Acupuncture for Metabolic Disorders Treatment

Acupuncture works to balance blood sugar and promote weight loss by directly stimulating the pancreas, decreasing systemic inflammation, and regulating the digestive system. Depending on the symptoms present, acupuncture will balance the organ system dysfunction that resulted in the blood sugar deregulation. Many Chinese and Western herbs have been proven to be extremely effective in balancing blood sugar and reducing sugar cravings. Gymenma, cinnamon, ginseng and others have profound blood sugar lowering effects. Research has shown that acupuncture effectively lowers blood sugar and C-peptide levels in diabetic patients.

Track 8: Acupuncture – A Game Player in Modern Healthcare Facilities and Market Capitalization?

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can provide a safe, effective alternative for many of the health complications that may arise before, during and after pregnancy. A growing number of women are choosing acupuncture to use throughout their pregnancy and as an optional treatment for an overdue or difficult labor. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine are an effective treatment for regulating menstruation and hormone levels, reducing stress and addressing any pre-existing medical conditions or concerns that a woman may have. There is strong evidence to support that acupuncture is highly effective at treating some of the most common problems experienced during pregnancy including morning sickness, heartburn, insomnia, water retention and sciatica.

Track 9: Advancements in Acupuncture Treatment Strategies

Laser acupuncture has included advanced brain imaging, as well as several other modern protocols for measuring various physiological effects to the body. These studies show that laser acupuncture has physiological effects, not only locally, but also in the brain, similar to needle acupuncture. Laser on Urinary Bladder 67, for example, shows measurable effects in the brain. The effects were only detected when the laser was turned on. When the laser was turned off, no effects were detected. Good effects of laser acupuncture for the following conditions: hiccups, bed wetting, weight loss, post-operative nausea and vomiting, pain control, surgical anaesthesia, dental anaesthesia, carpal tunnel syndrome, dry eyes, and stroke-related paralysis.

Track 10: Traditional Chinese Medicine in Acupuncture

TCM encompasses many different practices, including acupuncturemoxibustion (burning an herb above the skin to apply heat to acupuncture points), Chinese herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese therapeutic massage), dietary therapy, and tai chi and qi gong (practices that combine specific movements or postures, coordinated breathing, and mental focus). TCM is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism and dates back more than 2,500 years. Traditional systems of medicine also exist in other East and South Asian countries, including Japan (where the traditional herbal medicine is called Kampo) and Korea. Some of these systems have been influenced by TCM and are similar to it in some ways, but each has developed distinctive features of its own.

Track 11: Acupuncture & Pain Management

The methods of acupuncture are based on the belief that the body contains patterns of energy flow referred to as qi. Proper, unimpeded flow of qi is believed to be essential for the maintenance of proper health, and needles applied to specific acupuncture points are believed to help correct and balance that flow. Due to its ability to stimulate the central nervous system, acupuncture has the potential to significantly affect the perception of back and neck pain.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends acupuncture as an effective treatment for over forty medical problems, including allergies, respiratory conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, gynaecological problems, nervous conditions, and disorders of the eyes, nose and throat, and childhood illnesses, among others. Acupuncture has been used in the treatment of alcoholism and substance abuse. It is an effective and low-cost treatment for headaches and chronic pain, associated with problems like back injuries and arthritis. It has also been used to supplement invasive Western treatments like chemotherapy and surgery.

Acupuncture, along with moxibustion, is one of the oldest practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 1972 the first legal acupuncture centre in the U.S. was established in Washington DC and in 1973 the American Internal Revenue Service allowed acupuncture to be deducted as a medical expense.

The 2007 out-of-pocket expenditure for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in United States was nearly 34 billion dollars. Visits to a health care practitioner of any kind totalled $61.5 billion, of which, $11.9 billion was spent on CAM providers such as acupuncturists and chiropractors. Over 3.1 million adults visited an acupuncturist in 2007, a figure that has risen sharply over the past decade, in 1997 there were 27 visits to an acupuncturist per 1,000 adults compared to 80 visits in 2007. By the early 2010s, more than 14 million Americans reported having used acupuncture as part of their health care. By 2016, Complementary and Alternative Medicine industry revenue is expected to amount to around 14.3 billion U.S. dollars in the United States. Globally, the industry is estimated to be worth some $60 billion a year.

In China since 1999, the government has promoted the development of Community Health Services Centres as major providers of primary healthcare, which includes the practice of acupuncture and moxibustion. There are currently 4169 CM hospitals in China (including integrated CM and Western medicine hospitals), and more than 90 % of these hospitals have an acupuncture and moxibustion department.

Future of Acupuncture


The future for acupuncture is bright. It is cost-effective, can provide a safe, side effect-free method. In 2007, 3.1 million people tried acupuncture, a million more than in 2002, to relieve discomfort caused by fibromyalgia, chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, low back pain, and other ailments. It is expected by the end of 2019 there will be as many as 30000 licensed acupuncturists at work in the United States alone. The FDA had a record of more than 20,000 licensed acupuncturists, estimated to be providing more than 10 million treatments annually at a cost in excess of $500 million.

The future for the acupuncture profession depends on its communities of interest. The professional association needs more participation. It is no longer "what is my professional association doing for me?" We have greater ethical and moral obligations to humanity in terms of sustaining this discipline as a community of knowledge. It really is about what each and every one of us does in support of the profession.
