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.

Pregnancy is an exciting surprise for those planning a family. For women, from the moment you've missed your period the emotional bond with your baby has begun. For that reason when there's a miscarriage, regardless if you are six weeks or 24 weeks, the emotional and physical recovery can be difficult...

 

Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: An informative article that explains not only the physiological but the emotional aspects of pregnancy and miscarriage. It offers insight into the role of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the healing process of a miscarriage to maintaining a future pregnancy. My favorite quote is one from her patients, "An acupuncture baby is a happy baby." So true!

Many women respond to single herbs or single formulas in their quest to get pregnant.  A strong overnight infusion of red clover, or red clover mixed with nettles and oatstraw has pushed many women over the brink from infertility to fertility.  This seems to work best when a little extra nourishment is needed in an otherwise healthy woman...

 

Editor's Note from Kath Bartlett: Infertility is a complex condition to treat with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) requiring additional, specialized education beyond the general masters degree training in Chinese medicine we receive in acupuncture colleges.

Acupuncture/TCM


by Steven Alpern, LAc

Human beings engage an amazing adventure in life. An individual Shen (Spirit) resides within the jing (essence), which has been consolidated by mixing the jing of both parents. A person is born, who experiences the interactions of life, acts to sustain his or her individuality, and records everything that happens. Individuals have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of themselves and the universe through their presence and cultivation until the final crowning of life, when they return to the Dao...

 

Acupuncture/TCM


by Ziki Dekel, LAc

Acupuncture is one of the oldest systems of medicine still practiced today. It has its roots in ancient East Asia and its practice can be dated as far back as the Stone Age in China. The basic precept of acupuncture is that illness and pain are the result of blockages and imbalances that can be corrected through the insertion of hair-thin needles into specific points on the body. When inserted, the needles access the body's reserve of vital energy, called Qi. To fully understand acupuncture we have to consider some of the philosophical traditions behind Chinese medicine...

I often think the general public thinks we don't actually go to school or that our lives mirror that of a monk in the woods watching things grow, a sanyasa in a cave in India reading through dead languages and standing on our heads, or possibly even a bell-bottomed hippy in a commune growing our own “herbs” and testing these herbs on each other...

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.
