Acupuncture Diagnostics: A Simple Method for Improving Clinical Results


In the recently published book, “Meridian Circuit Systems: A Channel Based Approach to Pattern Identification”, a simple method for improving one’s ability to accurately identify patterns is presented. In addition, the book covers a detailed method of pattern identification that is based on the networks that exist between the meridians.

In acupuncture therapy, properly identifying syndromes is a fundamental diagnostic procedure that forms the basis for developing a solid treatment strategy. However, many patients today exhibit complex patterns with numerous symptoms. This can make it difficult for even the most experienced acupuncturist to develop a treatment protocol that will produce quick and favorable results.

For patients with complex histories and a long list of symptomatic presentations, discerning the best treatment can sometimes be a challenge. In the book, “Meridian Circuit Systems”, the author provides a solution for these types of cases.

By using the methods presented in the book, it has been found that the therapist is less likely to ‘lead’ the patient through the intake, and this results in less subjective biases that could cause the therapist to arrive at a wrong diagnosis. “It is all to common for doctors to fall into their own subjective patterns, and arrive at a conclusion of ‘liver qi stagnation,’ without adequately understanding what is really going on,” says James Spears the author of the book.

While this method is very helpful for simplifying the intake process, the main component of the book outlines how to determine meridian based patterns. Most forms of acupuncture use zang-fu or 5-element approaches for pattern identification, but this book describes a precise method that is based on the numerous connections between the meridians.

In conjunction with the book, an online class has also been developed that is approved by the NCCAOM for continuing education credits.
