Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners believe that a balanced flow of Qi throughout the system is required for good health, and imbalances can be corrected by acupuncture stimulation Thus, a state of good health is determined by the dynamic balance between opposing yin-yang forces
Slide 4 - Acupuncture in the U.S. Documented evidence of use in 1826-Franklin Bache, a Philadelphia physician and grandson to Benjamin Franklin, published an article of its use Sir William Osler also endorsed acupuncture as an effective treatment for lumbago and sciatica in The Principles and Practice of Medicine Referenced in an Civil War surgeon's manual
Slide 5 - Modern U.S. History 1971 James Reston wrote a front-page article for the New York Times describing how his postoperative pain from an emergency appendectomy was relieved by acupuncture while traveling in Beijing Prompted a group of US physicians to observe practice in China and publish an article in Journal of the American Medical Association During Historic visit to China in 1972, President Nixon and his personal physician witnessed several surgeries using acupuncture-assisted anesthesia

Slide 7 - Acupuncture Point *71% correlation between trigger points and acupuncture points* Nerve fibers woven among blood and lymph vessels leading to superficial levels on the dermis Epidermis thins at the acupuncture point and has a corresponding modification of collagen fibers
Slide 8 - Mechanism of Action Mechanism of action is through conduction of bioelectromagnetic signals Activates opioid systems, and autonomic and central nervous systems, causing the release of various neurotransmitters and neurohormones Note: Acupuncture analgesia can be completely blocked by Naloxone
Slide 9 - Needling an acupuncture point stimulates a bioelectric response Changes the electrical charge 2 Hz releases diencephalons act on anxiolytic μ receptors 2 to 15 Hz releases β-endorphin and met-enkephalin in the brain and dynorphin in the spinal cord -more effective in relieving deep and chronic pain 100 Hz causes release of dynorphin alone Something else is actually going on as analgesic effect is much longer than the half-life of endorphins Mechanism of Action
Slide 10 - Evidence of Efficacy fMRI Evidence Technetium-99m injected at acupuncture point shows diffusion along different pathways and rates than vascular and lymphatic channels-credence to meridian theory
Slide 11 - Morphogenetic Singularity Theory States that meridian system is related to the bioelectric field in morphogenesis and growth control
