Acupuncture research project

by Fletcher Kovich


The purpose of this research project is to obtain experimental data relating to the communication between the organs and thier related acupoints (in both directions), to demonstrate 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 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 processed for publication by journals.
