Article from EPOCH TIMES:
New research finds acupuncture an effective treatment for the treatment of acne. Investigators examined the effects of four facial acupuncture treatments on patients suffering from acne vulgaris. Following the treatment regime, the investigators measured significant reductions in acne papules and nodules. Additional objective measurements revealed reductions in local inflammation of the skin and tissues. A survey measured a subjective satisfaction scale from patients that showed improvements as well.
The clinical data showed improvements in acne. The researchers also sought to measure the safety of acupuncture along with effectiveness. The researchers documented that no serious treatment related adverse effects resulted from acupuncture treatment. As a result, the investigation team concluded that standardized facial acupuncture is both safe and effective for the treatment of facial acne and its associated inflammatory conditions.

I get quiet a number of clients with problems of anxiety. Often people come to me for issues linked to physical body, but they will also have issues of anxiety that they have putting up with for many years. It is always good to see more research in this area. Please see article below for more information.
Article published by HealthCMi Feb 2014:
A recent study concludes that acupuncture relieves generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), a condition characterized by excessively intense and debilitating chronic anxiety. GAD sufferers cannot relax, startle easily and have impaired concentration. Overall, GAD sufferers are chronically worried and anxious.
In this new study, researchers note that “a number of Meta analysis and system evaluations point out that acupuncture treatment has more advantages than drugs in the treatment of anxiety disorders….” The researchers also note that acupuncture has a fast effective action and high compliance. In addition, acupuncture has a relatively minimal risk of side effects compared with drug therapy.
At the Healthcare Medicine Institute (HealthCMi), we promote acupuncture continuing education with acupuncture CEU and acupuncture PDA courses online. Our news division reports the latest in acupuncture and herbal medicine research. Most news is based on modern scientific reports. This recent study stands out because its basis is both in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) classical theory and modern biomedical research.
Traditional acupuncture & the side effects of cancer treatmentCan traditional forms of medicine including acupuncture help people with the side effects of cancer treatment. In addressing this question this piece will look at the use of traditional acupuncture in pain relief, palliative care as it relates directly to cancer patients, fatigue, and the management of cancer related lymph-oedema, although there are many other side effects of cancer treatment.
Fatigue is a very common symptom for cancer patients, as is moderate to severe pain. This becomes an important aspect of palliative care, the goal of which is to achieve the best quality of life for patients and one aspect of conventional treatments here is pain relief. Lymph-oedema is an obstruction of the lymphatic vessels causing localised fluid retention and swelling. The area of the swelling is then at risk of infection. The cause in this instance is from injury to the lymphatic vessels from surgery or radiotherapy administered as part of cancer treatment. This is often seen in women with breast cancer.
