Starting from the mid-20th century, the POS(Patient Oriented System) concept began to regain popularity.

Holistic medicine began to capture public interest, and interest in acupuncture and moxibustion with their long histories grew.

Acupuncture and moxibustion work by activating the bodys homeostasis faculties and facilitate healing by increasing the bodys own healing powers, without causing iatrogenic diseases.

Acupuncture and moxibustion have been re-recognized as a valid medical approach, if markedly different from Western medicine.
