It began in the 1980s, with a psychologist by the name of Roger Callahan, and a client with an extreme fear of water. Mary's worry of water managed her life and maintained her from everyday tasks. She was incapable to take her youngsters to the beach as well as was not able to drive near the ocean; she grew frightened when it drizzled, and also might not also endure the sight of water on TV. She had vivid nightmares entailing water.
Dr. Callahan as well as Mary had been functioning on this trouble with each other for over a year. Mary worked up the guts to sit within view of the pool at Dr. Callahan's house.
Dr. Callahan had lately been examining standard Chinese medicines, and also learning about meridians. Bearing in mind that there was an acupuncture point for the belly meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to touch there, believing it could treat her belly pains.

Gary observed repeated situations where the problem was inaccurately diagnosed or the expert tapped out the meridian factors in the wrong order, yet the individual was still helped. Based on these monitorings, he wrapped up that it did not matter in which order the meridian points were tapped.
