Acu-Therapy balances the body's energy core by gentle fingertaps upon key locations of the body. Acutouch therapy is a revolutionary new approach to healing.

Current Flow In Nerves
The substances and reactions released as a result of the neuronal discharge allows the body to react normally to the constant changes occurring during the activities of homeostasis of the organism. Injury or disease causes edema, inflammation, neuronal dysfunction, circulatory disturbances and lack of oxygen supply to the tissues or organ systems.
If there is poor transmission or even cessation of activity along the neuron, as a result of an injury or disease process, the system cannot conduct its action potentials along the neurons and the homeostatic and regenerative mechanisms are disturbed.
Inflammation in the tissue promotes the build up of chemical wastes, which may also interfere with neural transmission. This may be caused by mechanical, chemical or electrical disturbance to the neuronal complex.
If the action potential mechanism can be restored to normal, injury and disease can be affected at a cellular level and the health or normal nerve conduction of the organism can be improved and in certain circumstances, regained. This is possible with the use of Acutouch therapy.
Acutouch Therapy is therefore multifaceted
It should be noted that in some conditions both mechanical and chemical processes might be active. In infection, the inflammatory process invokes chemical nociception while the tissue swelling causes mechanical nociception. In trauma the injured tissue liberates intracellular potassium and lysosomal enzymes, but adjacent uninjured tissues may be subjected to excessive mechanical stress.
Central Transmission - Upon reaching the spinal cord, small diameter afferents are segregated from large diameter afferents in the dorsal root entry zone. Large diameter afferents pass medial to the dorsal horn with collateral dividing in tissue V of the dorsal gray matter and other branches ascending into the dorsal gray column.
Small diameter afferent conveying nociceptive information divide into collateral branches that ascend and descend in the dorsolateral tract with branches entering superficial layers of the dorsal horn at multiple segments above and below their level of entry into the cord.
and segmental symptoms
The extent to which these segmental symptoms occur is dependent on the duration and severity of the existing pathology, the amount of central inhibition, the state of general arousal and the existence of other pathology in the same segment.
