MCT - Muscle Channel Technique
Muscle Channel Technique (MCT), a proprietary acupuncture technique, is a useful tool for pain management and injury healing. MCT is effective, easily accessible to both the patient and clinician, and safe. In its application, needles are inserted subcutaneously toward the pain or injury along the affected muscle channels at classically defined access points around the ankles or wrists. MCT’s therapeutic effect can be enhanced by longer needle retention at the access points or the use of electrical stimulation between access and anchor points, which include He-Sea or Yuan-Source points.
