When visiting a teaching hospital associated with the Shanghai College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1989, I was surprised that Chinese massage therapy was used in a way similar to acupuncture to treat all manner of diseases. The therapist first performed a differential diagnosis and then used various massage techniques (there are 32 different strokes) to treat the appropriate acupuncture points to effect a cure. [Unlike California, Florida, and other parts of these United States where the First Amendment says that “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech,” in China, which has no Bill of Rights, practitioners are allowed to say that acupuncture and other forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine are capable of curing disease].
