Biography: My name is Anna Kamavosyan. I graduated from medical pediatric faculty of Russian National Research Medical University (Russia, Moscow) in 2016. I graduated from the residency in manual therapy and reflexology in clinical neurology, reflexology and manual therapy department of Russian Medical Academy of Continuous Professional Education (Russia, Moscow) in 2019.
In my educational path Oriental Medicine has always been my greatest interest. My current specialization is manual therapy and I have been in the industry for 2 years therefore learning the traditional Сhuna manual therapy with a great passion. Especially I would like to find out a different point of view in a new dimension for treatment of spinal and other disorders which would greatly expand and excel my knowledge in this matter.
Currently, my educational career takes place in a state hospital in an adult neurological department, where we successfully apply the treatment methods of manual therapy and acupuncture. Pulse diagnosis is my special interest and passion, which has been proven to be the most original method highly established in Korea. I wish to go deep into pulse diagnosis and acupuncture in practice treating a wide variety of diseases and adopt the experience of treating patients in Ophthalmology, Neuropsychiatry, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Otorhinolaryngology. This experience would be a vital step for my research and in my practice as a doctor.

Biography: I am a Professor at the China Medical University. My primary research interest is Acupuncture science. My research topic is concerning about the mechanisms of acupuncture analgesia. We want to investigate the mechanisms underlying antinociceptive effect of EA at Zusanli (ST36) acupoint. We have several methods to identify novel mechanisms in acupuncture therapy such as animal behaviors, immunohistochemistry staining, western blotting, and electrophysiology. We suggest that several pain (inflammatory, fibromyalgia, neuropathic) models-induced mechanical and thermal hyperalgesia was attenuated by EA. TRPV1 and associated signaling pathways was increased in inflammatory and fibromyalgia pain and further attenuated by EA. TRPV1 and associated signaling pathways can be prevented in TRPV1 knockout mice, suggesting that TRPV1 knockout mice are resistant to inflammatory pain. We hope these findings could be applied in clinical study for better therapy.
