Reviewing the actions of history, and more specific the historical charts of acupuncture. We have accepted the ancient scholars and texts as correct. Staying inside the box of what we were taught for centuries. It is now time for us to revaluate and seek answers to questions that review the other possibilities. How many channels are present and where do they traverse? Stepping outside the box of traditional acupuncture training themes to a new system that reveals what can be systematically validated. It is very possible that there are more acupuncture channels on the body than ever imagined. And that there are more points than ever thought, and multiple means of influencing these points, including coloured light therapies. Reviewing Peggy Creelman’s work a doctor of oriental medicine licensed in the state of New Mexico, USA, Dr Creelman has spent her professional career seeking the ‘what if’ question. She has used pulse reactive testing, something that Paul Nogier used with auricular acupuncture, and what has been used in Vega testing protocols, to validate new channels and new acupuncture points. Even changing the routing of the traditional channels and making room for a whole new way of practice. Doctor Creelman’s curiosity led her to ask, why in the traditional acupuncture charts are some digits without channels and why are there two channels going to the little finger? Also, Dr Creelman investigates the use of how colour influences various points and sites on the human body. All new insights for the modern acupuncturists.
