Innovation in Acupuncture Through Digital Meridian Imaging

“As a rookie acupuncturist in dire need of cheap CEU’s, I grudgingly showed up for a seminar on digital meridian imaging that offered 16 credits. As a recent graduate, I was full of myself and “the way” of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine stresses one must do a full intake, delve into every possible symptom to ascertain the correct diagnosis for proper treatment protocols that address the root cause of disease. Anything less was a detriment to the patient and to the profession, I thought with my puffed-up ego.

As I waited for the seminar to start I realized that most of the other 50 attendees were chiropractors or naturopaths with 100-300 hours of acupuncture training. I thought these people were just selling yet another device so DCs didn’t have to think about what points to use – they could have their office staff perform the two-minute procedure, stick needles in the recommended points and – presto! “valid” acupuncture, complete with pretty charts and explanations. I almost walked out in disgust and indignation.

Resistive, I listened to what they had to say. The history was valid. The research was solid. From a Chinese medical perspective, what they taught made more sense than I wanted to admit. I became intrigued with the technology.”
