The M-Test The M-Test, or Motion Induced Somatic Stress Test, is an innovative acupuncture method used to assess/diagnose and treat a person in pain. It was designed and implemented by a Japanese doctor, Yoshito Mukaino, MD, PhD, in the early 1990's.
The M-Test is a simple diagnostic treatment protocol that illuminates areas of pain and imbalance in the patient's body by assessing quality of movement. Dr. Khalsa will guide you through a series of stretches (the M-Test) to assess your comfort level during the motions. Discomfort while performing a movement indicates an area of imbalance in your body. Acupuncture points are then gently touched while you repeat the impaired movements. When relief is sensed, a small adhesive press-tack is applied to the acupuncture point along the affected meridian. The adhesive press-tacks remain on your body for several hours, or even for several days (until they either fall off or you remove them), which extends your treatment time; it's as if you're bringing your acupuncturist home with you!
When indicated, the Traditional Chinese Medicine long needle technique is utilized.
Please note the size of the small adhesive press-tack used in the M-Test treatment. A 0.3 or 0.6 mm micro needle/tack is in the middle of the tiny adhesive pad.
