Constitutional acupuncture is a form of healing that is far more advanced than regular acupuncture.
Instead of diagnosing a specific sickness, Constitutional acupuncture diagnoses each patient’s inherent strengths and weaknesses. By understanding these inherent weaknesses, the doctor is able to treat the whole body, enabling it toward many diseases.
Constitutional acupuncture divides people into 264 distinct “ constitutions” based on a system of strengths and weakness in the acupuncture meridians.
In constitutional acupuncture, the doctor does not focus on the symptoms of a disease, but rather, looks for its root cause in the 12 meridian system. Once the doctor has identified which weak meridian is causing the illness, he can treat the meridian, thereby healing the disease.
