The journey starts with the nine classical needles described in the Lingshu, with different shapes and usage. Needles and manipulations are further explored and continued to be used throughout Chinese history. In the mid seventies the acupuncture needle gets introduced in western healthcare. Innovative techniques and needle manufacturing have evolved since then and even an intelligent needle for data collection from within our bodies has been spotted.
At least as important as the needle and the technique of manipulations used, is the theory that explains the therapeutic goal. Do we target triggerpoints, neuronal circuits or meridians? The perceptions of the human body changed over time and probably will change in the future. What perceptions match closest the needling craft?
Also from my side my congrats for this great congress. The concept is impressing and well implemented, great speakers, the location is amazing and the organisation surprisingly (for the first time) well done. The food very good, too.
It really could be the basis for a series of future congresses with much more support from NVA, Zhong and BAF. The work load should be more spreaded. The question is what is the upper limit of participants. Belgium and the Netherlands need a congress like this.
Nog gefeliciteerd, met het organiseren van beide dagen, erg goed gedaan. Ik denk, dat we toch de weg op moeten gaan van wetenschappelijke onderbouwing, ik heb met veel plezier de artikelen gelezen, in het Engelse Medisch acupunctuur journaal.TCM en wetenschappelijk onderzoek hoeft niet op gespannen voet te staan, mijn idee. Indien ik je van dienst kan zijn, hoor ik dat wel.
Walter van den Branden, fysiotherapeut, accupuncturist
