I just have a question for anyone who may feel inclined to respond. I have just completed my training as a medical acupuncturist and am just ecstatic! I just heard, however, about meridian regulatory acupuncture, using a computer to balance the meridians. I may be "stuck in the old ways," but this sounds a bit like taking the art out of acupuncture. I am interested to see what people's opinions may be regarding this. I know that in the end, what's best for the patient is what matters, but my concern is about dehumanzing the art. Again, I may be a traditionalist and need to just open myself up to new ideas, but I have concern for the future of acupuncture if machines start to do it for us.
Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
