Acupuncture research project

by Fletcher Kovich



The purpose of this research project is to obtain objective experimental data relating to the communication between the organs and thier related acupoints (in both directions), to validate every aspect of the author’s hypothesis on what acupuncture is and how it works.

This page lists the methods and equipment used in the experiments; and also provides links to datasets from selected experiments. The research is ongoing. Analysis of some of the data has been published in journal papers, while other papers are either in preparation or being prepared for publication by journals.
