Acupuncture/acupressure/dry needling: inserting painless sterile needles into the muscles in an effort to reduce pain in the body was developed in the Orient about 5000 years ago. It is a very exact science that takes years to master effectively. However for many years it was frowned upon by Orthodox western medical doctors for the obvious reason that western scientists had not had the chance to examine the effectiveness of that ancient treatment. Volumes of research by multiple medical and scientific research institutes have subsequently been performed and the UK National Health Service now offers Acupuncture for low back pain, a course of 10 sessions over 12 weeks, (NHS NICE Guidelines 05/2009).

Dr. Ashton Vice was schooled in acupuncture in Chicago USA, at a university teaching hospital and completed the Illinois acupuncture licensure requirement. He has been using acupuncture daily for back and neck pain, and joint complaints for 37 years. He has even used acupuncture assisted childbirth working along side medical colleagues, since 1988.
