Altering the Ancient Art of Acupuncture

In 1951 Dr.Yoshio Nakatani M.D., Ph.D developed a method of examining the meridian system of the body through electronic measurements which altered the way acupuncture would be practiced throughout Japan, Europe, Australia and North America. Referred to as “Ryodoraku” by Nakatani its use would become international within 25 years of discovery.

Contemporary Acupuncture Diagnosis

In approximately 1957, a medical delegation from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) visited Japan and became fascinated with Nakatani’s discovery. This group visited his clinic, making detailed observations into the procedure. They were amazed at both the theory and therapeutic effects! Following the delegation’s return home, the daily newspapers published several articles concerning Ryodoraku examination and treatment together with case reports of the treatment. Requests were made that Nakatani visit the PRC; however, due to political concerns, Nakatani declined all invitations. Ultimately, reports of Ryodoraku and electronic evaluation of the meridian system would stop coming from China. It is agreed by authorities that needle/electronic analgesia developed in China was spawned by Nakatani’s original work.

A Quicker Treatment Option

Nakatani first developed the procedure of electronic evaluation of the meridian system by measuring skin conductance at the Yuan (Source) point of the wrist and ankle. By doing so, he created one of the most significant acupuncture diagnostic methods that have yet to be created in either contemporary or traditional acupuncture. When one compares the findings of learned Asian masters of acupuncture using pulse diagnosis with the findings of Ryodoraku, the meridians shown to be involved are identical. Masters of acupuncture are known to palpate the 12 pulse positions for as long as 15-30 minutes per wrist in select cases. Electronic evaluation of the 12 Yuan points takes less than a total of two minutes regardless of the complications of the case.
