The Amazing Breakthrough Acupressure Method For The Most Difficult Case

Acu-Kinesiology is the stimulation of specific and precise acupressure/acupuncture points that bring about specific and precise neurological and energetic reactions. There are many different ways to stimulate the specific and precise acupressure/acupuncture points. Since not all healing disciplines are licensed to use acupuncture needles, there are other forms of stimulation that may be used. It could be by percussion, either tactile or mechanical, touch, rubbing, cold laser, electrical stimulation, and there are a few other forms I have not mentioned. This is the art of applying the science.


What separates the Acu-Kinesiology Method from the others is the science. It answers the important question, "What are the specific and precise points to be stimulated, and what is the specific and precise neurological or energetic reaction we want to obtain?"


Acu-Kinesiology was founded and by a Chiropractor / Acupuncturist as the premier acupressure method for spinal pain. But, because this method was based primarily on the science of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians and the Musculo-tendino Meridians instead of the Traditional Chinese Acupuncture Meridians, many organ and hormonal dysfunctions also respond to treatments.


The Eight Extraordinary Meridians are the foundation and matrix that every system of the human body is built upon, including the Traditional Chinese Acupuncture Meridians. It is the operating system that runs the human body much like the operating system that runs a computer. It is the fundamental software that every other software uses to run its program. Therefore when you address the main software program, many things get better quicker and stay better longer.


The Eight Extraordinary Meridians also have a history of being the primary acupuncture system for the articulations of the spine and for correcting structural deformities especially dealing with the muscles. Even though Traditional Chinese Acupuncture methods may do the same, we will focus on the most relevant system to satisfy our needs as musculoskeletal system practioners.


It is the unique blend of the art and science, the specific and precise points that are stimulated for the specific and precise reactions, that separates Acu-Kinesiology from the rest. What Acu Kinesiology has done is synthesize the three meridian systems in acupuncture. There is an intermediate acupuncture system between the Eight Extraordinary Meridians and Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, it is the Musculo Tendeno Meridians. These are more organ and hormonal orientated then Traditional Chinese Acupuncture. I have observed more profound and longer-lasting organ and hormonal changes using the Musculo Tendeno Meridians with the Eight Extraordinary Meridians in the correction and stabilization of these problems. Therefore, you get the best of all three acupuncture systems.


What Acu-Kinesiology has also done is synthesize the science of The Eight Extraordinary Meridians, The Musculo Tendeno Meridians and Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, with some Osteopathic and Chiropractic principles that are energetic based plus the osteopathic science of the meningeal system, the Primary Respiratory Motion and spinal biomechanics. What was created by the marriage of these three disciplines is an extremely effective method based on the principles of acupuncture, chiropractic and osteopathic. This is a fancy way of saying that you get the best of three worlds instead of just one.


Acu-Kinesiology is the premier acupressure method for the relief of spinal stiffness and discomfort. It is also very effective on many other conditions beside spinal pain because it uses the science of three disciplines. Because there is no spinal manipulation associated with this method it is very effective on infants, children, the elderly, especially the ones with osteoporosis, and those who are in very acute or chronic pain.


Acu-Kinesiology does not treat disease, does not make any diagnosis, nor correct any illnesses. It treats the person by balancing the energetic dysfunction in the Eight Extraordinary Meridians. Once this dysfunction is eliminated there is an increase in the flow of Chi or Spirit through the Energetic Systems of the body. Where there is an increase of chi, there is wellness. Where there is wellness there is peace, stillness, contentment, gratitude and a balanced indifference.


This increase flow drops the shoulders and relaxes the back.


The primary and only intent of any healing session is to Make You Feel Better.


This Acupressure method is patent pending.

                  Acu-Kinesiology Steps Explained


The spine is the neurological and energetic switchboard of the body. It is associated with every element and function of the body. From my observation and experience, everything that happens in the body has an energetic or neurological element that goes “Through the Spine”. It is by design that the Du Mai is the CEO, the Man in Charge of the distribution of Divine Energy through the body, and is intimately associated with the dynamics of the spine.


Acu-Kinesiology is the treatment of choice for those who do not respond to drug therapy and /or are afraid of acupuncture needles and spinal manipulation. Acu-Kinesiology is practitioner and patient friendly because it is an acupressure method.


Acupressure is the treatment by touch, or mechanical stimulation to specific and precise acupressure points that bring about specific and precise neurological or energetic reactions.


What is presented is a brief overview of the Acu Kinesiology Healing Method. It is an thirteen step protocol that integrates all the elements of the energetic system.


Muscle Response Testing is used in combination with the step protocols from the art and science of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians, and applied kinesiology.  This is a way to use manual muscle testing as a way to evaluate treatment procedures.


The bonus of using this form of applied kinesiology is that you know immediately if the therapy has been successful.


Part of the evaluation is to find what muscle is weakened by the dysfunction.  You use manual muscle testing you find the specific muscle involved, which becomes the indicator muscle.  You then apply the procedure.  If it was the correct procedure the weak muscle will become strong.


If it was the incorrect procedure or if the points were not held long enough, the muscle will remain weak.


Another form of muscle response testing is categorized as "innate response".


It is an innate response whereby the patient’s body communicates to the practitioner what the dysfunction is.  An example: The practitioner places his hand on an acupressure point.  If there is a dysfunction with this point it will cause a strong muscle to become weak.  It indicates that this point has either excess or deficient energy in it.


Step 1-A has to do with the primary principles of Traditional Chinese Meridian Therapy.  Certain types of stresses caused by either physical, chemical or emotional elements in

which the body is unable to adapt, causes tightness in the spine at very specific vertebral levels.  These specific vertebral levels have been mapped out for centuries.  They are called Associate Points.


The body, in order to bring back homeostasis to the Meridian System, responds to balance the tightness in the spine.  In acupuncture, where there is an imbalance with either hyper or hypo energy, there is an attempt to bring the system into balance to relieve the spinal tension and spasm. There are very specific and precise acupuncture points that the body activates in order to do this. 


Depending on the vertebral level that is responding to the body's attempt to adapt to the stress, there are specific points that correspond to the vertebral level.  The protocol for step one is the "pulsing in" of these two specific and precise points.  This causes the stagnated energy to dissipate, thereby giving relief to the spinal tension, spasm and pain.


Because of the scientific design of the Meridian System, many visceral/somatic dysfunctions are improved with this protocol.  There is a neurological and/or energetic relationship to the designated organ.  When there is pathology in the neurology or Energetics coming from the spine it has an effect on the function of the associated organ.  The organ dysfunction then causes an energetic or neurological reaction with the spine.  These two dysfunctional pathologies perpetuate each other.  The protocol of step one has a tremendous balancing effect on this cycle. This protocol brings about relief of symptoms related to spinal tension and pain as well as visceral-somatic symptoms.


Step 1-B is the synthesizing of osteopathic principles of spinal biomechanics with spinal Energetics of the Jin Shin Jyustu and the Dai Mai Meridian of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians. This step is extremely effective on all acute as well has chronic conditions.  Step 1 A and Step 1 B is usually performed on the first three visits because of its tremendous affect on symptomatic pain as well as spinal tension and spasm. 


These two steps usually get a minimal of 40% relief immediately after administering these two protocols.  I have observed that as long as these two steps are stable, the patient is in the stage of recovery and continually gets better.  In my experience, I have noticed that I get maximum recovery in the shortest period of time with excellent stability when I use these two steps first and foremost.


Step 2, our primary interest is to address the Meridian pathology of the Du Mai Meridian of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians. The Du Mai Meridian’s primary function is the main distribution center for the Yang energy of the Meridian System.  He is considered the CEO of the Meridian System.  Because of the primary importance of the Du Mai influence on spinal pain and tension, we address the pathology in this protocol.  This step is important in stabilizing the work of the first two steps.


Step 3 deals with the balancing of the Du Mai and Ren Mai with the Chakras. Chakras.

have been part of the Ayurvedic Healing System and part of the teachings of the Eastern religions and philosophy for over 4000 years. 


It is understood that specific emotions and spiritual attributes are associated with each Chakra.  The specific emotions and attributes are both the positive and the opposite negative. It is also an accepted understanding that each chakra is associated with a specific spinal level and specific point on the Ren Mai Meridian.  If there is an imbalance in the specific emotions it will cause either a decrease or increase of the energetic energy of acupuncture, which will result in stiffness and tension in the specific areas of the spine.


Even though there are a few healing methods related to treating the Chakras, none of them take the approach of using the Du Mai and Ren Mai Meridians in order to reestablish homeostasis to this system which decreases the tension and spasm in the spine.


It could be said that Step 3 is part of the method where we address the detrimental influence that emotion has on the spine and musculoskeletal system. 

Step 4 is where we balance the Quai Mai and Wei Mai Meridians.  Because of these Meridian’s characteristics and function in the body, it has been observed that this step in the method is very beneficial in the treatment of extremity sprain and strains.  Not only does it address the ligament and tendon damages, but also addresses the muscle weakness and kinesiology of the affected extremity. This immediately improves the biomechanics of the affected extremity. 


When this step is used in treating extremities not only do you get the clinical benefits as mentioned above, you also get the energetic benefits of increasing the healing energy of the acupuncture system to the injured extremity as well as improving the neurological influence on healing.  You will notice that the healing time will be less and the tissue repair stronger.  Also your patient will get a lot of symptomatic relief. 


Step 5 deals with the Chong Mai Meridian.  In the science of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians, the King and the Queen of the Meridian System are the Du Mai and Ren Mai Meridians.  It is the Chong Mai's duty to carry out the wishes of the King and the Queen to every part of the body. Therefore, the Chong Mai Meridian is used in the treatment of practically every aspect of musculoskeletal involvement, which includes the visceral/somatic relationship.


Since the Chong Mai Meridian can be considered the main distribution center, you can see why it may be to your advantage to influence the distributor to send more healing energy to different parts of the body - which will increase the speed and quality of recovery.   


Step 6 is called Super Stimulation of the Du Mai Meridian.  The Du Mai Meridian is located right in the center of the spinal column with their influential points located right underneath the spinous processes of most of the thoracic and lumbar vertebrae. Each of these points on the Du Mai Meridian has complimentary points flanked very close to the right and the left called Huato Jiaji points.  These points can be considered the butler, the protector, the "Go-For" guy, the right and left handed men for the King of the Meridian System.


This step has to do with stimulating the Huato Jiaji points, and other points that perform similar functions, that are located near the spine, the sacroiliac, hips, and the ankle.  They perform an important role in alleviating spinal pain, tension and spasm.


Step 7 In the science of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians there are approximately 38 primary points.  Each of these points has a primary characteristic and function, and responsibility in running the body.  Sometimes when these points are overloaded because of their inability to respond to overwhelming stress, they “blow a fuse”.  They reset themselves to keep on going but they always reset themselves with a decreased capacity to handle its workload.  This step deals with repairing these points to optimal capacity.


Since these points are the primary points of the operating system that runs the whole body, they are much like the Chong Mai Meridian that is used to handle such a large variety of conditions, in which the Musculoskeletal System is one.  Because of the importance of their function, repairing these points is of great importance to the overall ability of the body to get well.


Step 8 has to do with the Musculo-tendeno Meridian System.  This system is the mediator between the Eight Extraordinary Meridians and the Traditional Chinese Acupuncture Meridians.  This Meridian System is of primary importance in the healing of many visceral/organ dysfunctions.  If you have an acute or chronic condition involving an organ you will have involvement in the Musculo-tendeno Meridian System.


In the science of Energetic Medicine, there has been mapped out the influence of visceral dysfunction on the Musculoskeletal System.  When you address this aspect and its relationship to the Musculoskeletal System, you increase the stability of this and your other modalities


Step 9 has to do with the layers of your spiritual bodies and their relationship to the Energetic System. Starting with the soul body and working outward  through the more dense spiritual bodies, ending with the physical. Each of these spirit bodies are associated with specific meridians and these meridians are associated with specific emotions and virtues.


When you get overwhelmed and you feel disconnected, “spacey” or “not in your body”, or “loosing touch”, you are experiencing symptoms of this dysfunction. This step re-aligns the bodies back into wholeness.

Step 10 has to do with centering. Centering, from the Acu Kinesiology perspective, is needed when the subconscious hides, for whatever reason, the next step to perform within the protocol or the nervous system needs help to remember.


The need to “Center” the body is when you do not get a response to what protocol to use next. The body needs to be centered if you get the protocol but cannot determine what muscle, area of the spine or extremity, or what organ system is being affected. The body could also be hiding the indicator muscle for the muscle response test.


Centering is important for focusing your clinical intent, and to bring awareness to past etiology factors and potential future problems and resolutions.


Acu Kinesiology is the premier acupressure method for Energetic Healing and spinal stiffness. The primary gift of Acu Kinesiology is an increase in the quality of life; it will make you feel better, without question.


Step 11 is the integration of foot reflexology with Meridian therapy. One of the Acu-Kinesiology best practitioners and a co-teacher is also an excellent foot reflexologist. His practice is known as “Your Footprints”.


Even though I felt better and experienced an increase in the flow of chi to the regions dictated by the foot reflexology chart, the healing sessions was bitter–sweet. It was a mixture of pain and pleasure.


After receiving a session I mentioned, “why don’t you try pulsing in the point you found on the foot with an acupuncture point?” It would be less painful.


Upon our next rendezvous he showed me his investigation into my suggestion. I was amazed with the increase and power of the flow created by adding Acu-Kinesiology to Foot Reflexology.


I decided something this good has to be added to the modality.


Step 12 I was introduced to the “buffing” procedure while attending a seminar about stillness of the mind and body. They used  a “buffing” protocol supplemented with a specific breathing pattern to induce an extremely relaxed state of stillness. The experience was magnificent.


When I got the inner nudge to add buffing to Acu-Kinesiology I knew the breathing would not work here. During my contemplation I heard the intuitive whisper that the key to this procedure is the anchor point.


I scanned the body and SI 3 was the blow out. Later BL 62 was added.

Holding SI 3 while buffing the posterior body from the occiput to the soles of the feet resulted in the same euphoric sensation that buffing and breathing did.


SI 3 is the Master Point for the Du Meridian. It removes any obstruction from the Du channel thereby increasing the effectiveness of the yang functions.


When Du Mai gives rise to illness, the spinal column stiffens and there is withdrawal, jue. Jue is a weakness from withdrawal of the yang Chi. There remains is a decrease ability to adapt to stress.


SI 3 is also known to influence the muscular-skeletal system, relaxing the muscles and tendons channels and alleviates heaviness  and painful joints.


Step 13 The client is prone and this step follows the buffing procedure which leaves the client in a very relaxed, mellow and still mode. I would innately do this procedure because I became in-tuned to the clients stillness. They are very open to healing.


This is the last thing that I do for my clients before they get up from the table. The blessing is generic, not my will but thy will be done.


All of the points used have an energetic relationship to universal unconditional love and mans integration of this love into his physiology.
