What is Mukaino Method?

Acupuncture with movement

The Mukaino Method is a method that was developed by Dr. Mukaino in order to bridge the gap between acupuncture and Western medicine,creating a language that is common to all healthcare practitioners.

It is a diagnostic method with treatment protocols that provide a simple and clear analysis that follows the path of the acupuncture channels and the relationship that exists between those and the movements.

The Mukaino Method can analyze the quality of certain movements, with the potential to treat the dysfunction immediately.
After identifying the unbalance movements some specific acupuncture points are selected, these points are tested simultaneously with the repetition of the previously diagnosed movements.
Selected points are gently stimulated along the affected channels to assess improvements in pain or restrict movement.
Thus, the patients perform the series of tests that allow the professional to evaluate the amplitude of the movements, help to find the restrictions or pain that is associated and easily identifying the channels involved in the dysfunction.

By focusing on movement (including pain and range of motion), practitioners develop a common language that can be understood across medical disciplines but most importantly of all is implicitly understood by the patient.
This method has become famous due to the excellent clinical results that can be felt immediately, but also, because it uses a superficial puncture and a very small number of needles in the treatment.

"If the diagnosis is well made the pain disappears by 80%, if at the end of two or three sessions the pain does not present significant differences, it is necessary to review the case." Dr. Mukaino

This theory was edited in the book:    Sports Acupuncture The Meridian Test and Its Applications
