Disease Based Studies

  1. Chronic Low Back Pain (Witt, 2006): Largest study to date demonstrates acupunctures effectiveness and cost-effectiveness in the treatment of chronic low back pain based on functionality, pain and quality of life assessed directly after, 3 months after, and 6 months after treatment. 11,630 patients.
  2. Acute Cerebral Infarction (Pei, 2001): “Early acupuncture treatment for acute stroke patients may improve motor functions, and consequently the activities of daily living.” 86 patients.
  3. Acute Spinal Cord Injury (Wong, 2003): “The use of concomitant auricular and electrical acupuncture therapies, when implemented early in acute spinal cord injury, can contribute to significant neurologic and functional recoveries.” 100 subjects.
  4. Breech birth (Cardini, 1998): “Cardini and Weixin found that moxibustion (stimulation of an acupuncture point by heat generated from burning a specific herb) is helpful for correction of breech presentation in late pregnancy. 260 subjects.
  5. Cocaine Dependence (Avants, 2000): “Findings from the current study suggest that acupuncture shows promise for the treatment of cocaine dependence. Further investigation of this treatment modality appears to be warranted.” 82 subjects.
  6. Dysmenorrhea, Primary (Pouresmail, 2002): “the therapeutic efficacies of acupressure and Ibuprofen were similar with no significant difference, and were significantly better than the placebo. Thus acupressure, with no complications, is recommended as an alternative and also a better choice in the decrease of the severity of PD.” 216 subjects.
  7. In Vitro Fertilization (Dieterle, 2006): “The clinical pregnancy rate and ongoing pregnancy rate (33.6% and 28.4%, respectively) were significantly higher than in group II (15.6% and 13.8%). Luteal-phase acupuncture has a positive effect on the outcome of IVF/ICSI.” 225 patients
  8. Labor pain (Skilnand E, 2002 & Ramnero, 2002): “The results indicate that acupuncture reduces the experience of pain in labor. A secondary outcome of acupuncture was a shorter delivery time, which mainly, if not exclusively, can be explained by the reduced need for epidural analgesia.” 210 subjects.
  9. Migraine without Aura (Allais, 2002): “Acupuncture proved to be adequate for migraine prophylaxis. Relative to flunarizine, acupuncture treatment exhibited greater effectiveness in the first months of therapy and superior tolerability.” Comparison without placebo groups. 160 subjects.
  10. Nausea and Vomiting after Abdominal Hysterectomy (Kim, 2002): 1 group each for 2 points, and one placebo group. “Capsicum plaster at either the Korean hand acupuncture point K-D2 or the Pericardium 6 acupoint reduces postoperative nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing abdominal hysterectomy.” 160 subjects.
  11. Nausea and Vomiting; Comparing and Combining Acupressure and Zofran (White, 2002): “The ReliefBand compared favorably to ondansetron (4 mg intravenously) when used for prophylaxis against postoperative nausea and vomiting. Furthermore, the acustimulation device enhanced the antiemetic efficacy of ondansetron after plastic surgery.” 120 subjects.
  12. Nausea and Vomiting in Children (Wang SM, 2002): “In children, P6 acupoint injections are as effective as droperidol in controlling early postoperative nausea and vomiting.” 4 groups of 43-50 children.
  13. Osteoarthritis of Knee (Berman, 2004): “”Overall, those who received acupuncture had a 40 percent decrease in pain and a nearly 40 percent improvement in function compared to baseline assessments. This trial, which builds upon our previous NCCAM-funded research, establishes that acupuncture is an effective complement to conventional arthritis treatment and can be successfully employed as part of a multidisciplinary approach to treating the symptoms of osteoarthritis.” 570 subjects.
  14. Smoking Cessation (Bier, 2002): Quasi-factorial design, sham-controlled. “Acupuncture and education, alone and in combination, significantly reduce smoking; however, combined they show a significantly greater effect, as seen in subjects with a greater pack-year history.” 141 subjects.

I love this place! I saw Nicky and she truly feels for her patients. She is wonderful at what she does and makes it a great comfortable and peaceful place. She has helped me so much! I highly recommend her!

My experience with Modern Point Acupuncture has been outstanding.  I was treated by Nicky.  She has a warm and fun personality as well as a vast amount of knowledge.  Her passion for what she does is refreshing since I have been to many other acupuncturists where it is lacking. She truly wants to get to the root of the problem and get you pain relief.  I came to her with a severe antibiotic resistant sinus infection accompanied by chronic migraines.  After one session the pain went down drastically in my face and the migraines were improved.  After about two months of one or two appointments/week the migraines and sinus issues were gone and I was off all medications.  I would highly recommend anyone to her (Nicky), she is amazing at her craft.  Finding Modern Point Acupuncture has been such a blessing!

"I have horrible allergies and have tried acupuncture a little in the past but in the past the acupuncture was performed by a chiropractor. I went to see Lindsay once and then signed up for 10 sessions. It is amazing what acupuncture can do. My favorite is that it totally relaxes you and then you notice things during your day that it has helped with. Lindsay is extremely knowledgable and I have learned so much. It is amazing how certain parts of the body are tied to your eyes, brain, etc. If you have any type of issue go see Lindsay. She is great."

"Adam is the best! Not only is he awesome at what he does, he seems to be a genuinely nice human. He took the time to learn about my embarrassing condition and try to gear my treatment towards that. He was excited to learn about something he didn't know existed, and I very much appreciated that. I'd highly recommend seeing him! Thanks Adam!"
