Meridian therapy is the accepted name employed by those who practice the principle of Acupuncture without the use of a penetrating needle.

Acupuncture is a principle, not a technique. Therefore, there are many ways to stimulate an Acupoint other than a needle, just as there are many different strokes used in swimming.

The doctors at APHR also use electronic stimulation, laser beam or pressure point to treat an Acupoint. The principle of Acupuncture does not change, only the technique.
