This book examines the widely known Acupuncture Balance Method in terms of working with local symptoms such as pain, loss of sensation, inflammation, cramping, etc. Using this method, you can achieve significant relief or complete relief within seconds. The method is easy to learn and can be mastered independently. In fact, the method does not require in-depth knowledge of Chinese medicine and acupuncture points; you are not required to remember ready-made recipes. The method is logically structured and consists of three steps: the diagnosis of affected meridians – the choice of therapeutic meridians – the choice of points for needling. The most difficult question in the system is solved very simply: meridians passing through the affected area are considered affected. The healing meridians are selected in accordance with one of the six communication systems. You can influence needling points not only with needles, but also with acupressure, which makes the method available not only for acupuncturists, but also massage therapists, as well as non-specialists.
The method is universal – many examples in the book demonstrate its consistent application to the treatment of various pain syndromes, such as headaches, pain in the neck, shoulder girdle, back, elbow and knee joints, fingers, heel, paralysis, nausea, etc.
