Click here to support Taking on Dry Needling by Patron of AOM for the NCALB Trust Fund

Dear Friends,
Please help!
Unfortunately, there are health care practitioners who are circumventing Acupuncture laws by calling Acupuncture “dry needling”. They mistakenly state that Acupuncture is not based in Biomedical Science. Serious injuries are occurring when people use Acupuncture needles with as little as 12 hours of training.
The attached letter will give you further information and 3 different ways to choose to donate. Please click to www.gofundme.com/fightdryneedling . Please share this with your friends asking them to donate

The Healing Power of Moxa

Up on the Daoist Traditions blog today, a post by DT Vice President Rachel Nowakowski, L.Ac., Dipl.Ac./Dipl.C.H. (NCCAOM) about moxibustion.

As you walk into any acupuncture clinic you often notice the familiar smoky odor of moxa. Some people love it, others do not. New patients usually ask “What’s that strange smell?” Moxibustion is a method of heating specific acupuncture points on the body by burning an herb material close to the skin...

Acupuncture treatment lowers frequency of hotflashes for 50% of women, study finds

"Women bothered by hot flashes and night sweats may want to give acupuncture a try as a relatively low-cost, low-risk treatment," said Nancy Avis, Ph.D., lead author of the study and professor of Public Health Sciences at Wake Forest School of Medicine, a part of Wake Forest Baptist. "Women will know pretty quickly if acupuncture will work for them. Women who had a reduction in their hot flashes saw a benefit beginning after about three to four weeks of weekly treatments."

Hot flashes - the bane of existence for many women during menopause - can be reduced in frequency by almost half for about 50 percent of women over eight weeks of acupuncture treatment, according to scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
