#1
Vladislav Korostyshevskiy
Background: Various types of headache comprise a widespread health problem. Among the possible treatment options, acupuncture is one of the most effective, with the least number of adverse effects. While the locations of acupuncture points have long been established, slight and specific modifications in point locations, as well as needling angles and depths in each individual case, can increase the effectiveness of acupuncture treatment for some types of headaches. Cases: Two typical "cases," which are composites of several similar cases, are discussed...

#2
Danny Bega, Kelley Park, Ania Grimone, Fang Lin, Melinda Ring
Objectives: There are no curative treatments for cervical dystonia (CD), therefore conventional management is aimed at pain relief and muscle relaxation. Many patients with CD use complementary and integrative medicine interventions to manage symptoms, yet there are limited data on the use of acupuncture for CD. The aim of the current study was to determine the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of adjuvant acupuncture. Materials and Methods: A pilot open-label study was conducted on acupuncture treatments as add-on therapy to botulinum-toxin injection sessions (3 months apart) in 5 subjects with chronic idiopathic CD...

Background: Many studies to clarify the influences of acupuncture at different acupoints of various meridians on cerebral blood flow (CBF) were conducted in the past. However, the influences of acupuncture at the points of the Governor Vessel on CBF have not yet been studied tangibly. Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the influences of acupuncture at individual acupoints of the Governor Vessel on cerebral hemodynamic indices. Materials and Methods: Two hundred and seventy-nine patients with chronic cerebral circulation insufficiency (CCCI) were observed, using a cerebrovascular disease diagnosis system (CVD 3000, KCC, Pyongyang, Democratic People's Republic of Korea)...

Alexandra Dimitrova, Charles Murchison, Barry Oken
Objectives: This work follows-up on a systematic review, published in 2017, of acupuncture for the treatment of mono- and polyneuropathy and associated symptoms. Previously reviewed trials of acupuncture for neuropathy primarily used acupuncture points in close proximity to underlying nerves. Further exploration of point selection for the treatment of each neuropathic condition is needed to assess the anatomical relationships between acupuncture points and peripheral nerves with respect to the treatment of neuropathy...

#5
Christopher R Chase
Background: The 5-Phase theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine has been an integral part of medical acupuncture for 2000 years. The research of John R. Cross PhD, PhDAc, has resulted in a further evolution of the 5-Phase theory to include the Ayurvedic chakra energy centers. By using chakras, a clinician can appreciate the integration of human organ systems, the neuroendocrine system, and personality attributes (both positive and negative) associated with each chakra. Objective: To create personality archetypes from chakras that have practical clinical value...

Rodney Choon Huat Lim
Objective: Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in healthcare is based on the holistic concept of smooth energy flow. The energy helps maintain the circulation of Blood and bodily processes. An efficient supply of consistent energy and good circulation helps support the body's homeostasis. In therapeutics, low-level laser energy can be transferred to the body (via the auricle) to activate or maintain homeostasis through specifically appropriate auricular sites. The goal of this research was to track the effects of painless laser acupuncture (PLA) on a group of highly motivated patients who wanted to quit smoking...

#7
Jasmin Stadler, Wolfgang Raith
Background: Little is known about active ear acupuncture points (EAP) in neonates. Previous unblinded studies by Stähler van Amerongen et al. showed that neonates have detectable active EAP, and that sick neonates could have more EAP relative to healthy neonates. EAP was investigated in an unblinded trial involving neonates with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Furthermore, a blinded, controlled observational trial was conducted to compare active EAP present in healthy neonates with EAP of sick neonates...

Auricular chromotherapy has shown promising results in the treatment of psychologic trauma and anxiety disorders, such as phobias and panic attacks. With its relatively easy and quick technical application, this procedure could be an indispensable tool for physicians. However, its mechanism of action is not yet understood completely. Objective: To treat patients suffering from trauma, phobia, and panic attack with auricular chromotherapy. Materials and Methods: The protocol was applied in 160 patients (135 who experienced traumas; 15 patients with specific phobias and 10 patients with panic disorder)...

REVIEW
Beniamina Mercante, Francesca Ginatempo, Andrea Manca, Francesco Melis, Paolo Enrico, Franca Deriu
Introduction: Stimulation of cranial nerves modulates central nervous system (CNS) activity via the extensive connections of their brainstem nuclei to higher-order structures. Clinical experience with vagus-nerve stimulation (VNS) demonstrates that it produces robust therapeutic effects, however, posing concerns related to its invasiveness and side-effects. Discussion: Trigeminal nerve stimulation (TNS) has been recently proposed as a valid alternative to VNS. The ear presents afferent vagus and trigeminal-nerve distribution; its innervation is the theoretical basis of different reflex therapies, including auriculotherapy...

Wolfgang Raith
This article explores the possibilities of applying ear acupuncture to newborn infants. In addition to the use of needle acupuncture, there are also noninvasive applications that are preferred for patients in this particular age group. Based on the limited literature, ear acupuncture could be an effective nonpharmacologic approach for the treatment of pain in newborn infants and for addressing symptoms of neonatal abstinence syndrome. However, studies on safety, side-effects, and other indications are still lacking...

Objective: The aim of this research was to analyze recent developments of auricular acupuncture in China during the past 10 years, from 2007 to 2016. Methods: The articles evaluated related to auricular acupuncture studies published in the last 10 years, from 2007 to 2016. The articles were retrieved from the China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) full-text journal database and from Tsinghua Tongfang, the Chinese Knowledge net. The history of auricular acupuncture, the overall status of the research, and the current use of standardization were analyzed and summarized...

This article provides a brief overview of the use of auriculotherapy in the treatment of various neurologic conditions. This overview is not comprehensive and is meant to be primarily informative. It is based on the premise that auricular acupuncture is an evidence-based medicine.
