I think I understood your post. I don't think I did a very good job of conveying what I meant.
I should have said that the authors do believe in activating meridians for healing based on what they claim in their introduction.

Jolly greetings from the land of MIA posters.
Every time I see similar articles, I am reminded of the early works of Dr. Felix Mann, who was among the first to attempt clinical trials on traditional Chinese application of acupuncture.
The results were rather mixed, but showed the ability to induce limited anesthesia, as well as heal various ailments with time. However, one thing he did insist on, the "acupoints" were not actual points, but rather regions on the human body.
Regardless of what school of medicine you follow, an interesting read.

It is true that this method is too lengthy for most people who naturally run to the cause and overlook the certitude about facts; but at last we will avoid the ridicule of finding the cause of what does not exist.1
