About David Euler

After completing his Acupuncture Studies in 1989, Dr. Euler specialized in palpation based acupuncture influenced by Japanese styles, mainly Master Nagano and Kiiko Matsumoto, as well as Master Kawai.

In this hour I will present the most common areas of pressure pain significant to the differential diagnosis for emotional stress and Anxiety and how to eliminate this pressure pain. It is very difficult to translate what exactly a patient tells us about the emotional stress and anxiety to acupuncture points. Due to the culture differences and the individual upbringing of the patient that seek acupuncture, we need a more reliable system of diagnosis and treatment verification. Palpating specific reflection-areas will provide a focus that the treatment can concentrate on. The reflection areas and treatments are very closely related to the antique Chinese texts and Traditional Chinese Medical patterns. Only that the translation onto the individual patient is done by palpation. We let the patient’s body show us what to treat. In this short presentation, for example, one of these reflection areas common to emotional stress and anxiety is the CV17 area. We shall focus on eliminating the pressure pain on that area using distal points.

Intractable pain is a common ailment in an acupuncture clinic! It is estimated that about 20-30% of soft tissue injury pain is refractory pain lasting from 6 months to many years. Various treatments, including acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, massage, chiropractic and manual treatment can only temporally relieve the pain, and then the patient suffers a relapse again with poor long-term results. Because there is no specific treatment, many patients rely on long-term use of painkillers to maintain daily life and work, and their quality of life is significantly lower than the normal population. The characteristics of refractory pain with soft tissue injury include: 1) long-term and recurrent pain, which can be triggered or aggravated by a variety of causes; 2) pain that can be widespread or only localized; 3) pain that is sometimes accompanied by numbness and cold limbs; 4) during palpation, there are obvious round or cord-shaped pain nodules, tender nodules, high tension of local skin and muscle, and hard texture in the pain area.

After many years’ studying of fascial trigger point theory and scar adhesion theory, Dr. Guojian Huang pointed out that the fascial trigger points were immature scar tissues with inflammatory reactions which were the cause of refractory pain of soft tissue injury related. Such immature scar tissue not only produces local tenderness and pain. At the same time, scar tissue between soft tissues such as myofascial and skin leads to increased friction during exercise, resulting in secondary soft tissue injury, pain and dysfunction. Again this kind of scar adhesive tissue will also produce compression symptoms on local vascular nerve tissue causing limb coldness, numbness, and discomfort.

A Mini Ren Acupuncture (MRA) needle has a tiny blade on the top of needle and it works on the superficial myofascial trigger points and scar tissues. Although the depth of the needle’s insertion is generally less than one centimeter, it has a stimulating effect the same as a needle. It also has a special advantage of a blade cutting effect, especially on myofascial trigger points and adhesive scar tissues to eliminate the root cause of intractable pain. MRA not only can make magical pain relief effects quickly, but also can obtain long-term treatment effects to achieve the result of curing intractable pain of soft tissue injury! MRA is a safe and effective acupuncture therapy which should be promoted to the world to help patients get relief from refractory pain!
