Interdependency and Change Govern Health

Acupuncture is based on an extensive body of knowledge developed over at least two thousand years of clinical experience and reasoning. Modern research has added to this, yet a lot of research remains to be done. Clinical trials into effectiveness are constraint by the likelihood that any form of skin stimulation used as a control procedure in “placebo controlled” studies may have physiological effects. We understand very little about the biological mechanisms of acupuncture. Both systems of knowledge look at how various aspects of the human being and the environment interact and have the capacity to adapt. This dynamic balance is the meaning behind the name acubalance.
