Welcome to the 5th Interdisciplinary Acupuncture Symposium!

Dear friends and colleagues,

the Scientific Association of Medical Acupuncture in Greece organizes the 5th Interdisciplinary Acupuncture Symposium in Athens, on the 24-25 June 2017.
This year’s symposium is focused on pain. All forms of pain affect personal life quality, productivity, effectiveness and even economy in a wider sense.
Acupuncture is widely used on pain treatments, acute or chronic, physical or psychological. According to modern science, acupuncture stimulation can actuate widespread brain regions, largely overlapping with the neural networks for both pain transmission and perception.
The congress program will contain multiple lectures and workshops concerning acupuncture clinical applications and current scientific research on our field.
Physicians, biologists, physicists and psychologists from Greece and other countries will discuss how to provide a therapeutic opportunity for a complete pain treatment and thus improve health.
We will be delighted if you join us in this interesting scientific quest.

Dr. Konstantina Theodoratou MD, MSc, Med.Psych, AABMRC Fellowship, President of ICMART, President of SAMAG
Chair of the Symposium
