At The Prather Practice, we take a very personalized approach to all of our services, including acupuncture. Whether you have received the benefits of this ancient, yet impactful health science before or are considering this alternative medical treatment for the first time, you’ve come to the right place.
Meridian therapy is the accepted name for those who practice the principle of acupuncture without the use of a penetrating needle. That’s our approach at The Prather Practice.
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. Many practitioners use electronic stimulation, laser beam or pressure massage to treat an acupoint. The principle of acupuncture does not change, only the technique.
