    The oral mucosa offers non traditional acupoints, forming an acupuncture microsystem that may be used for treatment of disease throughout the body. Through palpation of tender spots this system can be an aid to diagnosis, or by injection of tiny volumes of normal saline or local anaesthetic it can be used as an effective treatment. Oral acupuncture has been clinically tested over a period of 25 years and has proved effective for a variety of diseases. Additionally, relationships with internal organs and body acupoints have been demonstrated.
