the reason why it works is a reason I'm not qualified (or welcome) to give opinion.

A question is, are we rubbing the muscle where the pain is (basic), the nerve that interacts with it(advanced), or are we rubbing an energy source flowing thru our body(Chi) ? if it's a combo of all, then are the results the same with or without thinking in terms of Chi?

personally, thats the kinds of questions I'd like to read. but if thats boring and we want a 'who cares, it works' view, we can skip it.

I've only asked questions. I'm careful not to state opinion since I am not qualified, and it will be pointed out as such.

p.s. did I mention I'm not qualified to answer my own question? hence me asking it.

In truth, no one is... in fact, the Chinese medical fraternity is presently reinterpreting the internal medicine classics in light of western scientific advances and understanding. So really, not even they are qualified to say.

Personally, I think the Rolfers have got a much better idea, albeit a small part of the picture.

But the undeniable fact remains, how did the ancients know about these things, even if their explanation is unintelligible? And I'm not talking about just the Chinese...

I give up Ed... you've obviously got a bee in your bonnet about TCM or something... good luck.

I'm not going to say any more if you insist on twisting things out of context.

what else could that mean?

not only can I not have an opinion since I'm unqualified, but now I can't ask questions either?

Ed you have plenty of opinions that you continue to air!

This thread is about acupressure... keep it on topic guys or I'll lock it. I started the MWM Vs. TCM for specifically this kind of debate. Thrash it out there.

Eyrie and WT... I'd be interested in your opinion on that article I linked to TCM Vs MWM thread. Let's take the discussion under that thread and see where we can take it.

I've posted that quote in the TCM Vs. MWM thread as the answer relates to TCM as a whole and is also relevant to the article I posted aswell. Let's take the discussion there, please.
