  • Auricular Acupuncture effectively reduces state anxiety before dental treatment—a randomised controlled trial
    Clinical Oral Investigations, 2012
    Co-Authors: Andrea Michalek-sauberer, Erich Gusenleitner, Andreas Gleiss, Gabor Tepper, Engelbert Deusch

    Abstract:

    ObjectivesThe objective of this study was to analyse whether Auricular Acupuncture, Acupuncture at the outer ear, could reduce state anxiety before dental treatment.MethodsThis prospective, randomised patient-blinded study with 182 patients compared anxiety before dental treatment following Auricular Acupuncture at the relaxation-, tranquillizer- and master cerebral points (Auricular Acupuncture group) versus Acupuncture at sham points (finger-, shoulder- and tonsil points; sham group) and a non-intervention control group. Anxiety was assessed using the Spielberger State Trait Anxiety Inventory (German version) before Auricular Acupuncture and 20 min thereafter, immediately before dental treatment.ResultsAuricular Acupuncture reduced state anxiety score more effectively from 54.7 ± 10.8 to 46.9 ± 10.4 (mean ± SD) than sham Acupuncture from 51.9 ± 10.2 to 48.4 ± 10.0. In contrast, state anxiety in the control group increased from 51.0 ± 11.7 to 54.0 ± 11.6 (mean increase +3.0; CI +4.7 to +1.2). The decrease in state anxiety in both intervention groups was statistically significant ( p

  • Auricular Acupuncture and biomedical research a promising sino austrian research cooperation
    Chinese Journal of Integrative Medicine, 2015
    Co-Authors: Peijing Rong, Jingjun Zhao, Shaoyuan Li, Yuqing Li, Daniela Litscher, Ingrid Gaischek, Xu Zhai, Lu Wang, Gerhard Litscher

    Abstract:

    Treatment by Auricular Acupuncture has a long history. Ear-acupoint research has been advancing step by step in China and also in Europe. Auricles are rich in nerves, therefore a close relationship with different functions of the human body has been proved by the research teams of the two main authors of this article from China and Austria. In recent years, great progress has been made in the research of regulating human body functions through electroAcupuncture at the Auricular branch of the vagus nerve, which is part of Auricular Acupuncture therapy. It is well known that the Auricular branch of the vagus nerve is the only peripheral pathway to the cerebral cortex. Studies of the Chinese team on hypertension, diabetes, epilepsy and depression have shown that the mechanism of Auricular vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) may be comparable with cervical VNS in terms of pathways. Auricular VNS has a broad clinical application prospect.

  • Auricular Acupuncture with laser
    Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 2013
    Co-Authors: Regina Round, Gerhard Litscher, Frank Bahr

    Abstract:

    Auricular Acupuncture is a method which has been successfully used in various fields of medicine especially in the treatment of pain relief. The introduction of lasers especially low-level lasers into medicine brought besides the already existing stimulation with needles and electricity an additional technique to Auricular Acupuncture. This literature research looks at the historical background, the development and the anatomical and neurological aspects of Auricular Acupuncture in general and Auricular laser Acupuncture in detail. Preliminary scientific findings on Auricular Acupuncture with laser have been described in detail and discussed critically in this review article. The results of the studies have shown evidence of the effect of Auricular laser Acupuncture. However, a comparison of these studies was impossible due to their different study designs. The most important technical as well as study parameters were described in detail in order to give more sufficient evidence and to improve the quality of future studies.
