By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

STOCKHOLM,  Acupuncture Science Association Sweden successfully held its member assembly and academic lectures as well as the WFAS International Profeciency Test for Acupuncture-Moxibustion Practitioners on Sept. 22, 2018.

The background of the lecture and the doctor’s test was the visit of Wang Shenhe, Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Chinese Medical Societies Academy and Director Zhang Zijun to Sweden.

They visited the Belt and Road Swedish Education Base under the World Federation of Acupuncture and Moxibustion in Stockholm, Sweden, WFAS.  Wang and Zhang visited the education base and made an important speech titled “How can China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences lead Chinese medicine to go abroad.”

The head of the education base, the executive committee of the World Federation of Acupuncture and Moxibustion Associations, and the President of the Swedish Academy of Acupuncture and Academic Research, Yang Chungui, after listening to the speech of President Wang, said that they will further strengthen cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine and report to President Wang on the joint development plan of the “Belt and Road” joint education base especially emphasized that Jiemei Lawyer and Bengt Wahrolén lawyer of Guohao Law Firm are helping us to fight for acupuncture legislation in Sweden.

President Wang and Director Zhang listened to Yang’s report and expressed appreciation. President Wang also stated that he would strongly support cooperation with Sweden and promote the realization of the goals according to the plan.

The next day, Counselor Dai from the Chinese Embassy in Sweden met with President Wang, Director Zhang, President Yang and Jiemei. Counselor Dai said that the embassy wish the smooth development of the education base in Sweden and promote the success of Chinese medicine acupuncture in Swedish legislation.

President Wang also indicated that he will actively cooperate with the work process. The Swedish Academy of Acupuncture and Moxibustion held the 2018 General Assembly and Academic Lecture on September 22, and the International Acupuncturist Examination was held at the same time.

The Society has invited Yang Jinhong, Executive Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Hospital, and Dr. Li Jian, a general practitioner of Swedish Skarpnäck Vårdcentral, to explain the valuable experience of clinical application of acupuncture from two different perspectives: Chinese medicine and Western medicine.

At the same time, the Society also invited Dr. Wang Zefeng, the person in charge of the Chinese Medicine Museum, Dr. Guo Wanchun, the editor of the European Edition of the World Traditional Chinese Medicine magazine, and Yang Liran, the principal of the former Swiss-Chinese Chinese School, to attend the conference.

Yang Jinhong, deputy dean of the hospital, is an expert in acupuncture treatment of neurological diseases, and is also a standardization expert in acupuncture and moxibustion of Chinese medicine and a member of the editorial board of evidence-based acupuncture.

The lecture titled by Dean Yang is “Experience of Acupuncture Therapy for Intractable Diseases”, which explains in detail the experience of acupuncture treatment for refractory facial paralysis, postherpetic neuralgia, epilepsy and motor neuron disease. Dr. Zhang Chenrui acted as an interpreter. 

Dr. Li Jian is a well-known orthopedic expert in Guangzhou, China, and a Ph.D  from the Karolinska Institute of Sweden. He  used Chinese, English and Swedish  to talk about ” Local Analgesic Mechanism of Fascial Tissue Acupuncture  and “Lateral hip pain treatment with the combination of west medicine and traditional Chinese medicine”.  The wonderful lectures by Dean Yang and Dr. Li deeply attracted the audience. Everyone took pictures and took notes, for fear of missing any knowledge point.

The two keynote experts also patiently answered the questions of the audience. With just a few words, they could explain the key points and showed their rich knowledge and profound academic attainments of the experts and won applause.

Meanwhile,WFAS International Profeciency Test for Acupuncture-Moxibustion Practitioners in Sweden in 2018 was also held.

The International Acupuncturist Examination is currently the highest level of acupuncture professional examination in the world. This year, senior acupuncturists such as Reijo Pöyhöne and Wei Wei participated in the examination. Dr. Reijo Pöyhöne has been working in traditional Chinese medicine for acupuncture and moxibustion in Sweden for more than 20 years. He has written a number of Chinese medicine acupuncture teaching materials. Dr. Wei has 10 years of clinical experience in Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine and a master’s degree in Chinese medicine. He has been practicing medicine in Sweden for more than 10 years. These senior physicians take the exam and will greatly promote the development of acupuncture in Sweden.


It is the duty of our acupuncturists to improve acupuncture and moxibustion and better serve patients.

American, Canadian scientists win 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics

By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

STOCKHOLM, Oct. 2(Greenpost) — Göran Hansson,  Permanent Secretary of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has announced the result of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics at the headquarter of the Academy.

“The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Nobel Prize in Physics 2018 “for groundbreaking inventions in the field of laser physics”

with one half to Arthur Ashkin, Bell Laboratories, Holmdel, USA

“for the optical tweezers and their application to biological systems”

and the other half jointly to Gérard Mourou, École Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France and University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA and Donna Strickland, University of Waterloo, Canada

“for their method of generating high-intensity, ultra-short optical pulses”.

According to  a press release from the Academy, the inventions being honoured this year have revolutionised laser physics. Extremely small objects and incredibly rapid processes are now being seen in a new light. Advanced precision instruments are opening up unexplored areas of research and a multitude of industrial and medical applications.

Arthur Ashkin invented optical tweezers that grab particles, atoms, viruses and other living cells with their laser beam fingers. This new tool allowed Ashkin to realise an old dream of science fiction – using the radiation pressure of light to move physical objects. He succeeded in getting laser light to push small particles towards the centre of the beam and to hold them there. Optical tweezers had been invented.

A major breakthrough came in 1987, when Ashkin used the tweezers to capture living bacteria without harming them. He immediately began studying biological systems and optical tweezers are now widely used to investigate the machinery of life.

Gérard Mourou and Donna Strickland paved the way towards the shortest and most intense laser pulses ever created by mankind. Their revolutionary article was published in 1985 and was the foundation of Strickland’s doctoral thesis.

Using an ingenious approach, they succeeded in creating ultrashort high-intensity laser pulses without destroying the amplifying material. First they stretched the laser pulses in time to reduce their peak power, then amplified them, and finally compressed them. If a pulse is compressed in time and becomes shorter, then more light is packed together in the same tiny space – the intensity of the pulse increases dramatically.

Strickland and Mourou’s newly invented technique, called chirped pulse amplification, CPA, soon became standard for subsequent high-intensity lasers. Its uses include the millions of corrective eye surgeries that are conducted every year using the sharpest of laser beams.

In an interview with Greenpost, Professor Thors Hans Hansson said they are all deserving the prize because the inventions can be used in many applications in the future.

The innumerable areas of application have not yet been completely explored. However, even now these celebrated inventions allow us to rummage around in the microworld in the best spirit of Alfred Nobel – for the greatest benefit to humankind.

The Laureates

Arthur Ashkin, born 1922 in New York, USA. Ph.D. 1952 from Cornell University, Ithaca, USA.

Gérard Mourou, born 1944 in Albertville, France. Ph.D. 1973.

Donna Strickland, born 1959 in Guelph, Canada. Ph.D. 1989 from University of Rochester, USA.

Prize amount: 9 million Swedish krona, with one half to Arthur Ashkin and the other half to be shared between Gérard Mourou and Donna Strickland.
