Intro: Micro Systems
Microsystems Acupuncture is both an alternative, and complementary
to traditional acupuncture. One style on its own may be used
or several styles in conjunction. It comprises the following:
acupuncture uses either needles, studs, seeds or metal balls
on specific points which functionally and topographically
represent the whole body.
Wrist and Ankle Acupuncture
This specialised wrist and ankle microsystems acupuncture
is primarily used for pain control. It a system that can be
used on a daily basis in a clinic that specialises in musculo-skeletal
conditions. Maria Mercati first came across this style in
1993 in Shanghai and has used it to achieve magical results
with frozen shoulders, back pain, neck pain, wrist and foot
pain, achilles etc. It uses only six points on the extremities
and produces amazing, fast, almost instant results. Until
recently it has been a well kept secret.
Back Shu, Jia Ji and Spinal Acupuncture
This form of acupuncture has acupoints on either side of
the spine each of which represents one of the internal organs
and the nerves that relate to it.
Scalp acupuncture affects the motor, sensory and associative
areas of the cerebral cortex.
Master Tung's Acupuncture
Master Tung’s acupuncture system where needles are
inserted into specific areas which correspond to specific
and quite different parts of the body.
