There are thousands of TCM acupuncture centers in London, England, and acupuncture in New York, the United States can cost as much as $500... As one of the most shining business cards of Chinese medicine going to the world, Chinese acupuncture has been used in 193 countries and regions around the world.

Liang Fong is the vice chairman of the World Federation of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, the leader of the national key discipline of acupuncture and massage in China, and the chief professor of acupuncture and moxibustion at Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Health and legal systems, these three major problems have now been basically resolved. First of all, the needles of acupuncture are made more slender, and the tube acupuncture method is used to make most patients feel no pain; secondly, the original needles will be used repeatedly for half a year or more, but now they are all one-time use. The risk of infectious diseases is avoided; finally, as more and more countries legislate to recognize and protect acupuncture, the legal bottleneck for acupuncture to “go global” is gradually reduced.

As a discipline guided by the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture and moxibustion must follow the development law of traditional Chinese medicine. At the same time, TCM acupuncture is not a closed system, it is very inclusive to modern science and technology. Modern multidisciplinary interaction can promote the scientific understanding of acupuncture and provide the possibility for in-depth elucidation of the related mechanisms of acupuncture. Only by inheriting the essence, keeping upright and innovating, and breaking the limitation of the way of thinking of various disciplines through modern multi-disciplinary crossover, can the ancient acupuncture be developed faster and better.Editor/Ma Xue
