'Moving Acupuncture to the Frontline of Military Medical Care: A Feasibility Study'.

A US military research team has carried out a feasibility study to examine the use of ‘Battlefield Acupuncture’ (BFA, a type of ear acupuncture) for pain control amongst injured personnel being evacuated by air from military bases in Germany to hospital in the USA. Nurses administered BFA (auricular points Cingulate Gyrus, Thalamus, Omega 2, Point Zero and Shenmen) to patients experiencing pain during the flight. Patients reported a statistically significant reduction in pain after receiving the treatment.
