The Journal of Chinese Medicine has written a great article on how mindfulness can ease inflammation for people with chronic inflammatory conditions - such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease. These conditions are often made worse by stress, which a lot of us have been struggling from this year. With this in mind, patients could benefit from practicing mindfulness meditation to lead a pain free life.

One of the theories is the Gate Theory of Pain. This was introduced in 1965 and it explains that acupuncture works through the nervous system to alleviate pain.
The theory states that in the nervous system, there are nerves that both transmit and inhibit pain. These fibers come together in the substantia gelatinosa of the spinal cord. The substantia gelatinosa then sends pain signals to the brain, depending on the amount of pain input.

They point out, however, that “only national health authorities can determine the diseases, symptoms, and conditions for which acupuncture treatment can be recommended.”

We believe here the sky's the limit when it comes to healthcare. We think of Tu Youyou when she was tasked with finding a cure for malaria by Mao Zedong in 1969. More than four decades later, her discoveries help save more than 100,000 lives every year in Africa alone, and she has been rewarded with the highest honour in medicine, the Nobel Prize, shared with fellow parasite-battling scientists William C Campbell and Satoshi Ōmura. A truly monumental moment in TCM history.

What is yoga puncture?

Yogapuncture is the combination of a yoga practice with the experience of community acupuncture. The class involves an all-levels flow class to get the qi and prana moving. At the end of the flow, we then move into finding a supported savasana, using bolsters and blankets to put them in a place where you can lie comfortably for at least 20 minutes. We then look to plant a few acupuncture needles to assist you or your patient to find a deep and restorative, long savasana.

The overall class creates a unique experience which is different from either yoga or acupuncture on its own.

Dry needling vs. acupuncture, what does the research say?
Dry needling and acupuncture involve puncturing the skin with thin needles for therapeutic purposes. While a shared aim is to provide relief from pain, the practices are otherwise very different.

11/05/2020

With Chinese medicine being used for over 2,100 years, there’s no wonder it’s being used more and more in medical treatments. It’s a system of medicine at least 23 centuries old that aims to prevent or heal disease by maintaining or restoring yin yang balance. This is why we feel strongly about teaching our students the importance of integrative medicine and how we can easily incorporate it into the modern world.
