Acupuncture Research

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture is a time-tested medical system that has developed over the past 3-5,000 years.


There has been an increasing interest in the scientific explanation of how Acupuncture works since Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture has been gaining popularity in the West over the past few decades.


Some of the scientific theories to explain Acupuncture includes:

  • the Connective tissue structure theory 
  • the Nerve Conduction theory
  • the Bio-Magnetic energetic theory
  • the Body Fluid circulation theory
