Importance and Scope

The (WHO) World Health Organization recommends Acupuncture as an effective treatment over forty medical problems, including respiratory conditions, allergies, gastrointestinal disorders, nervous conditions, and the eyes, nose and throat disorders, and childhood illnesses, among others. Acupuncture has been used in the treatment of alcoholism and substance abuse. It is a low-cost and effective 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 Surgery and Chemotherapy.

Acupuncture and Moxibustion, is one of the oldest practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The first legal acupuncture centre in the U.S. was established in Washington DC in 1972.  

The out-of-pocket expenditure for Complementary and Alternative Medicine in United States was nearly 34 billion dollars in 2007. Visits to a health care practitioner of any kind totalled $61.5 billion, of which, $11.9 billion was spent on Complementary and Alternative medicine providers such as chiropractors and acupuncturists. Over 3.1 million adults visited an acupuncturist in 2007, a figure that has increased sharply over the past decade, in 1997 there were 27 visits to an acupuncturist per 1,000 adults compared to 80 visits in 2007. More than 14 million Americans reported having used acupuncture as part of their health care by the early 2010s,. By 2016, Complementary and Alternative Medicine industry revenue is expected 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 moxibustion  and acupuncture. There are currently 4169 Complimentary Medicine hospitals in China (including Western medicine and integrated CM 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, it can provide a safe, side effect-free method. In 2007, 3.1 million people tried acupuncture, more than in 2002, to relieve discomfort caused by chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, fibromyalgia, low back pain, and other ailments. It is expected by the end of the year 2019 there will be as many as 30000 licensed acupuncturists at work in the United States. The FDA had a record of more than 20,000 licensed acupuncturists, estimated to be providing more than 10 million treatments yearly 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 the knowledge. It really is about what each and every one of us does in support of the profession.

Sessions/Tracks

Track 1: Pain & acupuncture: Value based care evidence

Acupuncture helps to ease types of pain that are often chronic such as neck pain, low-back pain and osteoarthritis/knee pain. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent a migraine headache which was suggested from number of studies. Thus, acupuncture appears to be a suitable option for people with chronic pain to consider.

The impact of acupuncture on the body and brain and how best to measure them are only beginning to be understood. Current evidence suggests that many factors like expectation and belief that are unrelated to acupuncture needling may play major roles in the beneficial effects of acupuncture on pain.

  •  Acupuncture and chronic pain
  • Acupuncture strategies in pain management           
  • Biomedical acupuncture for pain treatment and care
  • Acupuncture pain relief points
  • Clinical applications and case studies

Alternative medicine is describes as any practice that is advanced as having the healing effects of medicine, but is not founded on evidence gathered using the scientific method. Standard care is what medical doctors, osteopathy doctors, and health professionals, such as physical therapists and nurses, practice. The complementary and alternative medicine field is known as CAM. Complementary medicine can be used together with standard medical consideration. One of the examples is using acupuncture to help with side effects of cancer treatment.

Alternative medicine is a highly profitable side, with a strong lobby. This fact is often overlooked by media or intentionally kept hidden, with alternative practice being portrayed positively when compared to "big pharma".

Track 7: 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 8: 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 9: 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 12: Acupuncture for addiction recovery & depression: (Ear and Electro acupuncture)

Acupuncture is becoming a complementary treatment in addiction recovery programs. Ear and Auricular acupuncture is a popular form of this treatment that involves insertion of a thin needle at various points on the skin of the external ear to help ease withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings. Acupuncture is both safe and cost-effective. When combined with other forms of treatment, such as individual therapy, group counselling, and support groups, it can benefit those suffering from a substance addiction. The practice can reduce cravings, increase patient retention in rehab, ease unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, decreases anxiety and stress and reduces pain.

A developing number of individuals are utilizing alternatives, and new research proposes that Acupuncture could be a promising alternative. One new investigation observed the Traditional Chinese practice to be as viable as antidepressants, and an alternate report found that needle therapy may help treat the depression.

Track 13: Acupuncture esthetics

Since ancient times Acupuncture has been popular for a reason: It makes people feel better. In modern years, patients undergoing the methods/procedure to treat health concerns have noticed that their looks have benefited, too leading to a rise in “acupuncture facials” that incorporate whole-body rebalancing with targeted needle stimulation for glowing skin.

There is a rapidly increasing trend among acupuncturists of offering various forms of facial rejuvenation as a service in their practices. This leads to a massive demand for anti-aging, rejuvenation services from the baby boomer generation, which spends billions of dollars each year in pursuit of looking and feeling younger. Acupuncture has been around for centuries. A part of TCM, it may help treat body pains, headaches, or even nausea. Unlike injection procedures, facial acupuncture addresses signs of aging, and also the skin's overall health.

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term used for medical products and practices which are not part of standard medical care.

Health professionals who hold an M.D. or D.O. degree practices standard medicine. Other health professionals, such as physical therapists, physician assistants, psychologists, and registered nurses also practices standard medicine. It may also be called biomedicine or allopathic, Western, mainstream, regular medicine or orthodox. Some standard medical care practitioners are also practitioners of Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).

Complementary medicine is a treatment that is used along with standard medical treatments but is not considered to be standard treatments. An example is using acupuncture to help lessen some side effects of cancer treatment.

Alternative medicine is a treatment that is used instead of standard medical treatments. An example is using a special diet to treat cancer instead of anticancer drugs that are prescribed by an oncologist.

Integrative medicine is an approach to medical care that combines standard medicine with the CAM practices that have been shown to be safe and effective. They treat the patient's mind, body, and spirit.
