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 question I'm asked most frequently by family, friends, and patients is "What should I be eating?" There is an immense amount of anxiety around our diets and what we put into our bodies. We're bombarded by (often contradictory) news stories about miracle foods or foods that should be avoided, which leaves us unable to make meaningful choices about our diets...

Editor's Note: 'What are acupuncture points?' is probably one of the most frequent questions a TCM practitioner receives. At times energetic medicine like acupuncture is difficult to explain to patients, yet Mona uses imagery, analogies, and favorite quotes to eloquently relay this information. Great video!

Lissa Coffey learns about the acupuncture, and a particular type of acupuncture called "Mei Zen" which is like a natural face lift!

 

Editor's Note: "When you feel good you look good." That's the basis for Mei Zen. It balances the energy of the face and body to relieve lines on the face giving a fresher more relaxed appearance. Definitely a viable alternative to plastic surgery, with no recuperation time. And as an added benefit, a Mei Zen procedure is very relaxing.

The National Cancer Institute estimates that 1 in 8 women in America will develop breast cancer at some time in her life. Exposure to chemicals, unhealthy lifestyle and genetic predisposition may all play a role in the development of breast cancer but the single most significant risk factor is growing older. Cancer of the breast is no longer viewed as a single entity but a “family” of cancers, and increasingly more specific diagnostic and treatment approaches are beginning to yield better outcomes for patients, including women with metastatic disease...

Most of Eastern Philosophy and Medicine comes from observing Nature and the Universe. Ancient Chinese realized early that most things in Nature are cyclical and by observing the human body’s patterns, established that our own energy (Qi) also moves on daily and on annual cycles.
