From Electro-Acupuncture to Microcurrent Electro-Acupuncture

It could be accurately said that the use of electro-acupuncture goes back to the Bronze Age (3000 – 700 B.C.), when metal acupuncture needles were first used in China. From what we know now any metal needle inserted into the body produces low-level electrical activity, especially when manipulated. Such stimulation is in a similar charge range as what is produced by modern microcurrent devices.

The Magic Auricular Pain Treatment Protocol

I have written in previous articles about the power of treating holographic micro-systems, such as ear, hand and facial regions1 Each of these contains a map of the rest of the body. There is two-way communication between micro-system points and their corresponding body parts. Stress and dysfunction in the Liver, for example, can show up on the face through deep vertical lines on the brow (Liver area) or through discolorations in the Liver point of the ears.

Laser and LED Treatments – Which is Better

There is quite a bit of controversy among light therapy proponents about the therapeutic value of lasers, which produce coherent light, versus LED and incandescent sources, which produce incoherent light. Laser enthusiasts, backed up by a large body of research, claim that only the intense, highly coherent beam of a laser can penetrate deeply into the body’s tissues and meridian system for significant results.

Hormones Come To Light

For those of us in the healing arts, it is useful to take a step back from day to day practice and to ask ourselves what “healing” really is all about. When a patient has a very positive, long lasting response to your treatments, what really has taken place? Or if patients don’t get much better after receiving well-chosen techniques, why is that? Most of what we have been taught offers only very limited explanations for the phenomenon of healing, or lack of it.

Microcurrent Color-Light Mu-Shu Method for Internal Organ Therapeutics

By the time most patients decide to visit an acupuncturist or other CAM practitioner, they are past the acute stage of pain or illness. In fact, most patients visiting us have a history of chronic pain and/or illness that has not been well-alleviated with Western medicine. When a patient tells us they have sacroiliac pain, migraines, knee pain, or a host of other complaints, diagnosis usually reveals a combination of internal and external factors – for example, a 45-year-old woman with recurring hip-SI pain that also has tension in the liver-gallbladder functions, or a man with knee pain in which kidney-adrenal imbalances also show up.
