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.

Eat less and exercise more.


Is this what you hear often?

 

You’ve worked out on the bike for the last 6 weeks and instead of losing weight you gained 5 lbs. You feel your metabolism fell asleep...

 

Editor´s Note: This article explains the effects of acupuncture on weight loss. I've found in my clinical practice that acupuncture helps a lot with cravings, improves digestion, and decreases stress. As the author explains, acupuncture is a small piece to the bigger puzzle of lifestyle, diet, and exercise changes. It is a great tool for overall health!

 

 Acupuncture/TCM


by Renee Woodruff

I didn't have a targeted purpose for trying acupuncture, although I'd be lying if I didn't admit I was curious about the possibility of "curing" my never ending tummy troubles. Outside of that, I was looking at it from a more holistic and preventative perspective. I wanted to see if going to acupuncture on a regular basis would help with my stress levels...

 

Editor's Note: I love this blog post! Truthful, candid, reader-friendly, and informative perspective of why every woman should try acupuncture. Renee's curiosity to try acupuncture proved to be quite the success in improving her overall health and wellbeing.

Acupuncture/TCM


by David Sack, MD

When people arrive at an addiction treatment center, they typically don’t want to be there. They’re agitated and apprehensive, and they doubt whether they even have a problem, especially one that is as bad as their families, employers or the courts believe...

Acupuncture/TCM


by Ziki Dekel, LAc

The law of yin and yang is the natural order of the universe, the foundation of all things, mother of all changes, the root of life and death. Chinese medicine is replete with numbered systems: the three treasures, the five elements, the eight principles, the fifteen types of qi. These multiplicities account for the variety of ways in which psychic and physiological phenomena manifest in the human body and help to define the medical system as a whole...

Editor´s Note: This is an excellent video that combines a personal testimonial with scientific research. A Western MD is curious about Chinese medicine and how acupuncture works. He researches the theory behind this ancient practice, receives acupuncture treatments on his injured knee, undergoes fMRI to demonstrate the effect on the brain, and tests out the results. Watch and see what he thinks!

Editor's Note: Acupuncture and other natural therapies are becoming more integrated into Western healthcare settings.

Acupuncture/TCM


by Ka Hang Leoungk

As an acupuncturist, I do a lot of myth debunking. It’s understandable. After all, acupuncture speaks an entirely different language from the one through which most Westerners learned to see the world. However, with acupuncture continuing to grow in popularity and gain acceptance by mainstream medicine, it’s important to clarify a few myths and misconceptions that have a strong hold on our collective psyche...

 

Editor's Note: This is a fun, easy-to-grasp article that explains five common acupuncture myths. As an acupuncturist myself, I too spend a lot of time explaining how acupuncture feels, what it does, and if it works. The author is sure to put some misconceptions to rest, and offers insight into how this ancient medicine fits into modern times.

Body Clock

by Milos Bang

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.
