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.

I am often asked how acupuncture works.  My usual answer is that the body craves balance and harmony and this can be achieved by needling certain points.  I tell you that we are working to supplement what is lacking, decrease what is excessive, and clear areas that are blocked.  I say that every acupuncture point has a physical, emotional and spiritual function...

 

Editor’s Note: Acupuncture is highly effective, and becoming better understood as we assimilate it into our culture. How do you think it works?

A lot of the information out there about Swine Flu is alarmist and meant to frighten people. I think it's much more useful to be vigilant about our personal well-being than to be scared about it, so I've been giving people some practical advice that can be applied year round...

Now more than ever, Integrative Healthcare is becoming more viable as a potential remedy for what is ailing America’s healthcare system. Currently, we are facing a national crisis on just how we are going provide healthcare to Americans and keep it affordable and fair for everyone.  Unfortunately, if we don’t change our underlying philosophies, I don’t believe we will find an answer within the current system...

Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: This is a great video that captures a typical acupuncture session for a first time client. Basic concepts of why we look at tongue and pulse, how a needle will feel, and other fundamentals are explained in an informative and comforting way. I hope this makes everyone more comfortable to try acupuncture!
 

Acupuncture/TCM


by Margarita Alcantara

When I first began treating patients with acupuncture as an intern in the clinic at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City, I was eager to implement all the theory and knowledge I had been learning over the past six years. I was also looking forward to seeing how I could make a difference in peoples’ lives simply through my acupuncture treatments, as well as my interactions with them. I was quite pleased to learn that my bedside manner seemed to put my patients at ease, and a sense of trust seemed to establish itself, too.

 

 But what I did not expect was what I would receive back...

 

Acupuncture/TCM

One of the great challenges of aging is that ailments frequently descend on individuals for no apparent reason. People who have been generally “healthy” and it suddenly and themselves confronted by pains and other limitations. Sometimes, serious illnesses arise without discernable precipitating factors. Many people are left with the awful questions: “Why me?” and “Why now?”

It's estimated that after a year of trying to conceive, 10 percent of American couples are unable to get pregnant on their own.

The vast majority of them turn to traditional fertility treatments for help, but a growing number are also trying alternative therapies, including acupuncture, says Saturday Early Show's Dr. Mallika Marshall...

 

Acupuncture/TCM

Western Medicine has traditionally been resistant to alternative therapies, focusing on the management of disease after it presents, often ignoring the fact that a particular organ or system actually belongs to a person or patient. Alternative therapies and traditional medicine in many cultures, have focused on the whole person and have generally asked the questions about causation and methods of prevention...

Because the concepts of Chinese medicine, of which acupuncture is a part, differ from Western pathological categories of disease, familiarity with its unique vocabulary is a stepping-stone to the theoretical framework within which health and disease are understood.  Every human being is a world in miniature, a garden in which doctor and patient together strive to cultivate health...

Acupuncture/TCM

Carly Simon's lyrics are about heartache - but physical aches and pains can often be far worse. If you're in chronic pain, it's difficult to enjoy life. All your energy gets diverted to what hurts.
 
In modern society, we've relied on pharmaceuticals for "fast, temporary relief," which is an empty promise: the pain will return as soon as the palliative effect wears off...
