While for those trained in acupuncture, needling of acupoints is the primary option, in the NHSS (designed to enable lay people to manage their own individualized natural healing efforts), non-needling options such as acupressure, moxa, magnets and color therapy are emphasized.
On the other hand, SPE Blood Circulation Blend/Acupoint Protocol #2 features points that are readily accessible for self-application. Of course, this second protocol can also be applied to someone else. The two protocols are also strategically different. Protocol #1 focuses upon the brain’s collateral blood circulation (see discussion of this below). Protocol #2 is a general brain protocol.
