We present examples of tissue repair using these new modalities. Part of this paper was first presented at the international conference of acupuncture and electrotherapeutics held at Columbia University Oct. 2013. Since then the field has exploded and we will try to include some of the most relevant discoveries. PMID: 29772133 [PubMed - in process]
The objective of this study was to determine whether application of laser beam on acupuncture points has a positive effect on the rehabilitation of patients with a diagnosis of distal radius fracture (1.5 inches proximal to distal articular surface of the radius) when applied with active conventional physical therapy exercises. Patients with a distal radius fracture treated with closed reduction, percutaneous pinning, and a short cast for six weeks was included and were assigned to one of two study groups. The control group was given simulated laser acupuncture with the laser off, while the experimental group received lase...
Authors: Yasemin C, Turan S, Kosan Z Abstract It was aimed to observe the efficacy of body acupuncture and auricular acupuncture for the management of obesity. Fifty female obese patients were randomized into 2 groups; a Body Acupuncture Group (GBA; n=25) and an Auricular Acupuncture Group (GAA; n=25). All patients were followed up for 12 weeks. Their anthropometric measurements (body weight, body mass index, body fat percentage, waist circumference and hip circumference) were recorded for analysis in every 15 days.

Conclusion The analgesic effect of mild moxibustion at different intervention times on cold-damp coagulation and stagnation type dysmenorrhea rats was different, which was the most significant in pre-instant moxibustion group. One of the mechanisms of action may be related with the adjustment of abnormal levels of ET-1 and NO.
