Meridian Therapy is a system developed in Japan in the 1920-1930s out of careful studies and reevaluations of the traditional literatures and methods from China and Japan. It is a very practical and theoretically simple approach. Diagnosis involves a systematic palpation based approach. Treatment uses very thin needles very superficially(0.5-2 mm) and painlessly inserted. Treatment effects are monitored by observing various changes in findings found by palpation.
