Contact our editors about acupuncture healing & other alternative healing medicines online today! Spiritual & Healing Practices: Acupuncture Healing Though considered to be an alternative healing medicine practice, acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (or TCM), and other such Eastern healing practices have found their way into the Western world and other Asian countries outside of China. Consequently, acupuncture healing and wellness clinics have proliferated even in the most modern of places all over the world.    In the U.S., acupuncture, TCM, and other alternative healing medicine practices are integrated with Western medicine because there are laws regulating the practice of acupuncture and Chinese medicine.    Acupuncture healing is a centuries’ old Chinese medical practice which involves the insertion (hence, “puncture”) of needles into specific points on the body, and then manipulating said needles to stimulate the flow of energy in the body. It has been found to be effective for therapeutic and pain relief purposes; thus, its growing popularity.    According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture points are located along certain “meridians” of the body which when stimulated by needles can free the flow of blocked “energy”. Blockages in the flow of energy are believed to be caused by many lifestyle factors, including food intake, a person’s state of mind, state of spiritual wellbeing, etc.    Meridians are described as interconnected “points” across the anatomy which correspond with and affect specific organs of the body. This forms the foundation of other healing alternatives, such as reflexology, acupressure, etc. Acupuncture, TCM, and other alternative healing medicine take into account the wellness, not just of the body, but of the mind and spirit. In this sense, acupuncture healing is holistic healing.

The concept of sweet that we tend to think of in the west is very different from the way traditional systems, like Chinese medicine classify sweet foods. Sweet foods in any traditional system include nearly all vegetables, meats, as well as whole grains and legummes. These foods comprise the basis of a healthy diet...

 

Editor´s Note: This is a great article that explains the concept of 'sweet' foods according to Chinese medicine. It offers an explanation to the process of cravings, and a simple and convenient way to counteract a sweet tooth.

 

Acupuncture/TCM


by Monica Robbins

Licensed for more than 20 years, Bower sees both children and adults with ADHD, and says for them acupuncture is a complimentary form of medicine.

It works well in addition to other treatments, such as behavioral therapy and nutritional plans. Acupuncture is based on the theory that the body's energy or "qi" flows freely when you are well. But, it can become blocked or weakened...

 

Editor's Note: This is a great article explaining ADHD, which is a very common condition affecting many children and adults. Acupuncture treatments are used to balance the person's organ systems and internal energy, which in turn alleviates the symptoms of hyperactivity, impulsivity, and anxiety among other things. A patient's own experience is highlighted as to how well the treatments have worked for her. Acupuncture is a great alternative or adjunct to medication and other therapies.

Consumptive diseases have been grouped into a category of “Miscellaneous Diseases” (Za Bing) by Zhang Zhongjing in his text Jin Gui Lao Yue (Synopsis of Prescriptions of the Golden Cabinet) written in 220 A.C.E2., during the Han Dynasty. This text proves to be one of the most important references used by doctors of herbal medicine for the past 1,800 years...

Have you ever wondered why the downward facing dog yoga position is so popular and believed to be so good for the body? One author and acupuncturist tells us why we should strike this pose...

 

Editor's Note: This article combines theories from my two favorite practices in life: acupuncture and yoga! The author explains why one of the most common poses in yoga is also great for opening the bladder meridian, which is the longest channel in the body. I often tell my patients to do acupuncture and yoga right after one another for this reason!

 

Acupuncture/TCM

Acupuncturists have a name for the time when their patients are resting with needles. They call it “cooking.” Some people call it “torture.”

A recent article on common excuses for not getting acupuncture listed fear of needles as the number-one excuse. In response to this article, a popular sentiment arose, highlighting a type of needle fear that often flies under the radar...

 

Editor´s Note: I see many first-time acupuncture patients and fear of being 'stuck' is definitely one of the top reasons they've confessed to staying away from acupuncture in general. Even when they they've read and heard so many great things about it, fear often overwhelms action. Sara explains two simple steps to overcome this fear, which will allow you to sink into that deep euphoric state of relaxation. Which many, including Sara, call 'nap time.'

I'm always fascinated when science and traditional Chinese medicine overlap, so I was particularly interested in some recent scientific studies coming out of The Scripps Research Institute about "addiction" to junk food...

 

Editor's Note: I completely agree with this article. Without standing on a soap box for too long, I have to say that removing sugar, fruit juice, and processed grains from my diet for 40 days was one of the harder “special diets” I’ve attempted...

Stress. We all have it. The question is, “How do I get rid of it?!”    

The answer lies not only in eliminating the causes, but also in learning to manage life’s curveballs. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are useful in the management end.  Lifestyle counseling can help with the causes. How can acupuncture help, and what can you do stop stress in its tracks?...

The sun is shining, the temps are up - it's summer and with the warmer season comes outdoor fun, sports and athletic activities. Unfortunately, with those sports can also come sports injuries. These athletic injuries are most often caused by trauma, like a fall or blow, or the overuse or misuse of certain muscles and the neighboring ligaments and tendons...


Editor's Note: Acupuncture is not only effective for speeding the healing of sports injuries, but it also improves athletic performance :) Acupuncturist Sharon Sherman highlights several studies demonstrating benefits of acupuncture for athletes.

 

Acupuncture/TCM


by Sara Calabro

Researchers from Georgetown recently showed that acupuncture in rats reduces a protein that’s associated with stress. While this gives hope to those for whom molecules make more sense than qi, it remains to be seen whether the findings can be replicated in humans...

 

Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: This informative article discusses the trigger-point pain referral patterns that cause "TMJ", which stands for temporomandibular joint. Jaw pain is a very common condition, caused by various factors such as stress, posture, and emotional tension. Although Western medicine offers few effective treatments, acupuncture is an excellent option to release muscle tension, decrease stress, and promote overall balance in the body.

 

Acupuncture/TCM

I have lots of gardens in my yard; some are in the shade, some are sunny, and some are tucked into little corners that don’t get much attention.  I like to walk around my house and check what’s been growing, what’s flowering, and what needs a little weeding.  The other day, as I was checking out the green, I began to take stock of how many plants growing in my yard are actually Chinese herbs...

 

Editor's Note: Acupuncturist and author Lynn Jaffee writes an interesting piece about Chinese herbs found in the backyard. In acupuncture college we learn the herbs in a more esoteric way: identifying them in their dried and sliced form and learning the names in Chinese and Latin. Its quite removed from looking at the actual plant growing in the garden.

One of acupuncturist Dr. Jeffrey Levy's favorite patients walks with the assistance of a specially crafted wheelchair that rolls behind him to help him go long distances...

 

Editor's Note: After giving acupuncture to my own dog after a car accident, it reaffirmed what I already knew: that acupuncture really does work! This article showcases the increasing trend of veterinarians giving acupuncture to our furry friends for various conditions such as pain, arthritis and incontinence. The owners are true testaments to the effectiveness of acupuncture for the health and wellbeing of their pets.
