Acupuntura: bases científicas e aplicações

Abstract: A acupuntura visa à terapia e à cura das enfermidades pela aplicação de estímulos através da pele, com a inserção de agulhas em pontos específicos. Essa técnica esteve isolada do mundo ocidental durante milênios, distanciando sua forma de raciocínio e linguagem da cultura ocidental.

“…In this context, acupuncture to a particular area has produced both local and distant effects, according to traditional terminology. [12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22] Another study demonstrated that acupuncture was effective in the treatment of patients with pain and limited ROM, when given within 14 days of breast cancer surgery with node axillary dissection. 18 In that study, however, additional acupuncture meridian points were used according to health conditions of the patients before and after surgery.…”

“…As medicinas ocidental e oriental, desde suas origens, assumiram posicionamentos distantes e algumas vezes divergentes, impedindo o diálogo entre as duas ciências.
