Needle-Free Acupuncture Techniques
In 1993, I (Dr. Ron Cherubino) was invited to be a member of a delegation of doctors and other health care professionals on a lecture tour to China. The plan was to visit three major cities in mainland China and engage in professional exchange with our Chinese counterparts.
We were to observe, first hand, the workings of a variety of health care facilities. In turn, we were to report back on the efficacy of integrating alternative health care into our mainstream hospitals and other health care facilities back here in the USA.
During the weeks that we spent touring the hospitals, my perspective on acupuncture and the Chinese art of healing was dramatically changed. My primary orientation to acupuncture had been one in which needles were the treatment of choice. What I found, especially in the larger institutions, was a variety of non-needle instruments being used to treat traditional acupuncture points.
I was able to witness and experience acupuncture techniques such as acupuncture magnetic therapy and acupuncture for pain relief.
Since that time, my new perspective has led me to integrate the use of several non-needle instruments into my nervous system based approach here at the center.
Electro Acupuncture without needles involves treatment of specific acupuncture and trigger points on the body with small (milliamp/microamp) electrical impulses. These electrical impulses are applied by using specifically designed instruments which accurately locate and effectively treat specific acupuncture points. Treatment is safe and painless, making it appropriate for use with patients of any age. In our center, we have found that the therapeutic benefits resulting from the use of electro-acupuncture consistently exceed those achieved with the use of needles.
Laser acupuncture is one of the most effective forms of Chinese Meridian Therapy available. This advanced form of needle free acupuncture is safe as well as painless and delivers predictable physiological changes.
