Introduction: Surgical menopause is associated with symptoms that can affect a woman's quality of life (QoL) significantly. These symptoms include migraines, insomnia, and depression. Case: A 45-year-old Caucasian female presented at an acupuncture clinic. Fourteen years prior, she had been diagnosed with ovarian carcinoma, underwent ovariectomy, and was prescribed hormone replacement therapy. Deteriorating QoL caused her to seek acupuncture for migraines, insomnia, and depression. The outcomes sought for treatment of this case included intensity, duration, and frequency of migraines, insomnia, and depression, as well as her QoL...

Daniel G Federman, Jurgen L Holleck
Background: Auricular acupuncture is effective for many patients with pain. Many skin malignancies and precancerous lesions are found on the head and neck. Practitioners of acupuncture are in a unique situation to detect cutaneous malignancy at an early state. Case: An 83-year-old man referred for Battlefield Acupuncture was found to have a scalp lesion suspicious for malignancy as well as several precancerous lesions. Results: Referral to a dermatologist led to excision of a basal-cell cancer and treatment of actinic keratoses...

Cathaleen Madsen, Avni Patel, Megan Vaughan, Tracey Koehlmoos
Objectives: The Military Healthcare System (MHS) shows increasing interest in acupuncture as an alternative to opioids for pain control. However, specific factors associated with this procedure in the MHS are not well-described in literature. This study examines usage within the MHS to determine patterns among the diagnoses, provider types, and facilities associated with acupuncture. Materials and Methods: Acupuncture-treated patients were identified from TRICARE claims data in the MHS Data Repository as having at least one acupuncture treatment in fiscal year (FY) 2014...

#8
Kenta Sawazaki, Hidetoshi Hoshikawa
Objective: The use of noninvasive skin stimulation with microcones for constipation is promising. However, no double-blinded study has assessed the effects of this approach on constipation. The goal of this research was to assess the effects on constipation when using noninvasive skin stimulation with microcones. Materials and Methods: This double-blinded, controlled study included 44 subjects, each with a score of 5 points or higher on the Japanese version of the Constipation Assessment Scale (CAS-J). The subjects were randomly divided into 2 groups: (1) a stimulation group (skin-stimulation device with microcones; n = 23; group S) and (2) a placebo group (identical device without microcones; n = 21; group P)...

Mary Ann Barnes, Jessica Bennett, Jennifer Ross, Kristen Kraemer, Sian Cotton
Objectives: Urinary incontinence (UI) is common in middle- and old-age. Previous studies have shown that multiple-point and multiple-frequency acupuncture are efficacious treatment modalities for UI. This study investigated the efficacy of single-point acupuncture for the treatment of UI in women. Materials and Methods: Twelve female subjects, ages 40-75, participated in the trial. Acupuncture at CV 2 was performed. Before needle insertion, each subject completed the Revised Urinary Incontinence Scale (RUIS)...

REVIEW
Conner E Liddle, Richard E Harris
Background: Acupuncture has a long history of relieving many forms of pain. However, many of acupuncture's mechanisms are still unknown and/or misunderstood. Objective: This review looks at past research on many different methods and targets of study related to acupuncture. The main focus is upon the importance of connective-tissue planes in and around acupuncture points. Method: Relevant articles from journals as well as books on the topic were searched manually for information related to the topic. Results: Various studies offered different (and sometimes interrelated) mechanisms for how acupuncture needling results in analgesia among other effects...

Michael T Greenwood
Chinese Medicine (CM) suggests that the root of all disease lies in separation from the Tao, which occurs when Yin and Yang differentiate. Chong Mai-focused acupuncture can theoretically address this level, but an adjusted therapeutic approach could be necessary to produce the best results. In this article, the author explores some context and needling strategies used to work effectively with the Chong Mai in a unique way.

Arkady Kotlyar
Background: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is the most common cranial neuralgia in adults, with a slightly higher incidence in women than in men. This chronic pain condition affects the trigeminal nerve, also known as the 5th cranial nerve. It is one of the most deeply distributed nerves in the head. Antiseizure drugs are the main biomedical treatment of TN. However, TN is not the only source of facial pain. Background persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP) is also a chronic disorder, recurring daily for more than 2 hours per day over more than 3 months...

Objective: Strong evidence shows that 85% of women with chronic pelvic pain (CPP) have musculoskeletal disorders, such as abdominal myofascial pain syndrome (AMPS). The aim of this research was to assess the efficacy of local acupuncture treatment for women with CPP secondary to AMPS unresponsive to treatment with trigger-point injection. Materials and Methods: This pilot study involved 17 women with moderate-to-severe AMPS-related CPP. Acupuncture treatments were given at abdominal-wall trigger points once per week for 10 consecutive weeks...

Jan Z Szopinski, Sarah Rayne
Objective: Pathology of an internal organ/body part causes corresponding skin areas-organ projection areas/acupuncture points-to rectify applied electrical currents (a diode phenomenon) once the resistance "breakthrough effect" has been induced in these specific, and sometimes remote, skin zones. The aim of this study was to estimate the diagnostic accuracy-as well as the scope of utilization-for detection of breast pathology of organ electrodermal diagnostics (OED), which utilizes this electrophysiologic phenomenon...

Naoki Aoyama, Osamu Fujii, Toshikatsu Yamamoto
Objectives: Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture is a quick and effective microsystem of acupuncture used for treating various symptoms for which the somatotopic area is the scalp. This article describes Parietal Acupoint Therapy (PAPT), which is another approach, using a different scalp somatotopy, and to evaluate PAPT's effect on neck/shoulder stiffness and related mood disturbances. Materials and Methods:Subjects: Forty-six volunteers suffering from chronic neck/shoulder stiffness with various symptoms (headache, dizziness, and related mood disturbance) participated in this study and were randomly divided into 2 groups: treatment (26 subjects) and control (20 subjects)...

Objective: Motion sickness is the main cause of nausea-related symptoms during passive motion in transportation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) for the reduction of motion sickness symptoms. Materials and Methods: Study participants were randomly assigned into three groups: Group A, therapeutic EA; Group B, sham EA; and group C, a control group. After an EA session, participants were exposed to a motion stimulus, using a rotating chair. Their symptoms were measured using the Greek version of the Gianaros Motion Sickness Assessment Questionnaire (MSAQ)...

#17
Kimberly A Christensen, Barbara J Gosse, Celia Hildebrand, Lynn A Gershan
Background: Vasovagal responses associated with acupuncture therapy are relatively uncommon adverse events, occurring in ∼0.02%-7% of treatments. The complex neurocardiovascular reflexes involved in vasovagal responses can induce a range of symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, sweating, bradycardia, hypotension, and, in some cases, syncope or convulsions. Although patients typically recover quickly with proper support, these events may be of concern and anxiety-producing for both patient and provider. Providers need to be well-versed in methods for prevention and treatment of acupuncture-associated vasovagal responses to promote safe practice environments, patient satisfaction and comfort, and cost-effectiveness...

#18
Alexandra Dimitrova
Background: Peripheral neuropathy (PN) is defined as damage to the peripheral nervous system caused by a primary lesion or dysfunction. Multiple recent trials have suggested that acupuncture is beneficial for treating neuropathic pain. One challenge in acupuncture research is the lack of standardization of point selection, number of needles used, needle-retention time, needling depth, amount of needle manipulation, and use of moxibustion and electroacupuncture (EA). Objectives: This article presents a standardized acupuncture protocol for the treatment of PN that incorporates structural acupuncture principles based on proximity to peripheral nerves and on traditional approaches to the treatment of neuropathic pain...
