Most of us are very familiar with the term “Acupuncture”, but how many know that this is actually just one form of treatment utilizing meridian therapy? In the 17th century, missionaries from France observed Chinese doctors using needles to heal the body by placing them strategically under the skin of the patient. These Chinese physicians had discovered a system of energy lying directly under the skin’s surface which would send impulses to various body organs. Using needles in various locations on these meridians, healing occurred by balancing energy within the body, called “Chi”. Treatment of acupuncture points can also be done by means of electronic current, laser beam, acupressure and massage. Dr. Sibley prefers the non-needle electronic technique because it can be ten times faster in treatment time and is also painless.
