Detailed guidance enables conventional health care professionals to quickly understand and incorporate acupuncture therapy principles for pain management into their practice.The unique Integrative Neuromuscular Acupoint System ( INMAS ) simplifies treatment by focusing on only 24 acupoints, out of the hundreds of existing acupoints, thus creating a standardised protocol that can be customized for each patient.
