a preventative treatment to boost the immune system

Question 22: In a Reuters Health article of Wednesday June 27, 2007, it has been reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine (issue of June 19, 2007) that although acupuncture can provide benefits with regard to pain relief in those with knee arthritis, a recently released review of research on acupuncture has suggested that some of these beneficial aspects may be due in some part to
incongruent beliefs

the evaluation of patients and the formulation of treatment in acupressure
the existence of acupressure points or meridians
using the correct fingers or devices to stimulate circulation in acupressure

Question 26: Traditional Chinese Acupuncture recognized that if any of the 12 bioenergy channels (Meridians) circling around the body are blocked, these blockages
will result in energy imbalances in the body leading to inactivation the lymphatic system
will result in loss of blood flow to vital organs
will result in many chronic conditions. Acupressure uses deep pressure to open up those blocked meridians
interrupt the normal flow of neurons and cause neuro-disruption

Question 27: Acupoints used in treatment
are related to nerve endings from organs or tissues that are diseased
promote healing via autorhythmic activity
may or may not be in the same area of the body as the targeted symptom
will vary based on the person just like fingerprints do

Question 28: The TCM theory for the selection of acupoints and their effectiveness
is derived from neural pathways from the CNS to each organ in the body
is based on energy, sensitivity and electro-neural association
is that they work by stimulating the Meridian (Chinese medicine)meridian system to bring about relief by rebalancing Yin and yang, and qi (also spelled "chi")
is related to the practise and perfection of these acupoints based on observational outcomes on treated patients

Question 29: Acupressure might work
better if it is performed on younger patients with better muscular and neurological functions
better than acupunture due to the sense of the human touch versus a lifeless object

on older patients due to their thinner integumentary system elements

Question 30: When you stimulate a point in the same area where you feel pain or tension, it's called a
local point
trigger point
focal point
neural synapsis

Question 31: Local points can also relieve pain in a part of the body that is distant from the point, in which case it is called a
non-localized point
trigger point
reflex node
distal point

Question 32: Triggering mechanisms in Acupressure
are compromised in elderly patients
are connected to vital organs in the body which work together to promote healing
work through a human electrical channel called a meridian
are called cisternae

Question 33: The meridians are pathways
that connect the acupressure points to each other as well as to the internal organs
that connect all the muscle fibers within a given muscle
that travel with the neurons going into an individual section of the body
that stimulate a fascicle and a nerve

Question 34: Just as blood vessels carry the blood that nourishes the body physically
acupressure corrects the body's imbalance by neuro-positioning
the meridians are distinct channels that circulate electrical energy throughout the body
acupressure stimulates nerve endings that are associated with each organ in the body to promote health
meridians divide the body into twelve equal energy segments

Question 35: Acupresssure
causes all motor units to act together and promote healing
induced muscle contraction continue for long periods after nervous stimulation ceases
gave patients better, long-lasting relief for low back pain than conventional physical therapy, Taiwanese researchers report

skeletal, cardiac, skin, vision, knowledge and emotion
Small intestine, Large intestine, Stomach, Gall Bladder, Urinary Bladder, and Triple Burnner
periods related to neo-natal, infant, child, toddler, teenager and adult

Question 40: The highly effective acupressure point in the webbing between our thumb and index finger, for instance is not only beneficial for relieving
arthritis pain in hands, but also benefits the colon and relieves problems in the facial area and the head including headache, toothache, sinus problems
allergic symptoms but can also be used to alleviate stomach ache
chest pain but is also effective in improving night vision
muscle weakness but also promotes nutritional supply to individual cells
