Dr.Rungrat on TMC International Conference

On 4-5 February 2017, Dr.Rungrat Pawarashisan attend as presenters of TMC International Conference which holded at Lotus Hotel Conference Centre  Chiangmai on the issue: Acupuncture for Pain Relief without needle.

Acupuncture, which originated in China over 2500 years ago, is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Pain Relief is the area in which acupuncture has its most widely demonstrated effectiveness. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, pain is considered to derive from an imbalance of Yin-Yang, and from blockage in the flow of Qi and Blood. Based on these concepts, formulas of herbs and acupoints are tailored to the particular situation in order to regulate balance in the body, strengthen the body's resistance, and eliminate pathogenic factors and to distinguish between primary and secondary pathological causes, resulting in pain relief.


As concerns increase regarding the side-effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and opioids, side effect free, non-pharmacological interventions such as acupuncture have been widely used clinically at bedside as simple and safe alternatives for pain relief management.

The Presentation is in lecture, demonstration and practice on tracing meridian and applying acupressure with hands or Thai massage toll in place of acupuncture needles.
