The Matching of Myofascial Pain and Meridians

A recent study completed by Dr Peter T. Dorsher of the Mayo Clinic, has independently proven the acupuncture points described in the Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic written more than 2,000 years ago.

"This article demonstrates that myofascial referred-pain data provide independent physiologic evidence of acupuncture meridians. The acupuncture tradition provides pain practitioners with millennia of accumulated clinical experience treating pain (and visceral) disorders and offers the potential for novel pain treatment approaches and understanding of pain neurophysiology."
