    Acupuncture for prostatitis – vlog #22 and #23

    Our acupuncture vlog turned one year old! Thank you everyone for the amazing feedback and for making it a success.

    We value our viewers and therefore we took the suggestion from one of the viewers (who is actually a patient in The Acupuncture Clinic) and recorded two vlogs about chronic prostatitis / chronic pelvic pain syndrome. We talked about the different types of prostatitis, looked at the symptoms to watch out for, the research published about acupuncture for the treatment of prostatitis, and also talked about the main dietary and lifestyle advice.

    Acupuncture for dysmenorrhea (period pain)

    Acupuncture for dysmenorrhea (period pain)

    Vlog #21 brings you the news about the study by Dr Mike Armour et al, where researchers from Western Sydney University and the University of Auckland worked together in a small pilot study of 74 women aged between 18 and 45 years old.

    The researchers found that more than half had at least a 50 per cent reduction in the severity of their period pain after undergoing acupuncture treatment for three months, with the effects lasting for up to a year.

    Dr Mike Armour, a postdoctoral research fellow at Western Sydney University’s National Institute of Complementary Medicine said: “Our pilot study found that using manual stimulation of the needles, rather than an electrical pulse, commonly used in many Chinese studies for period pain, resulted in reduced need for pain-relieving medication and improvement in secondary symptoms such as headaches and nausea.”
