Example text

Many ordinary medical doctors will tell many of their patients to just relax and take it easy and stop worrying, while most TCM practitioners, in the United States at least, are more than willing to prescribe an herbal remedy. The readiness to attach a pathological diagnostic label to every human ill is something TCM practitioners might do well to investigate. Some European acupuncturists who focus on what they perceive to be the core or root see a root imbalance much like a constitutional imbalance.

A meridian acupuncture approach is especially well suited for this direct communication. In the case especially of chronic or recurrent pain, such an approach is deeply effective and long lasting, and capable of transforming a person who has been crippled by pain and dysfunction. Like Shudo Denmei, I never fail to add a core treatment, but the bulk of my work focuses on symptomatic relief and bodymind release. Page 41 Core Treatment The key concept of core treatment is to address treatment to what is believed to be the underlying dysfunction or imbalance expressing itself as overt symptoms.

What is so startling and important about this is that Travell accomplished this without any knowledge of Chinese acupuncture theory, such as yin and yang, the five phases, or the meridians. Instead, she discovered these phenomena of tender points based on images of muscles and fascia from Western medicine. If the TCM anatomists had selected these same myofascial images upon which to overlay the classical acupuncture points, I believe they would have arrived at diagrams virtually identical to those in Travell and Simons' texts and articles.
