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.

Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: This is very informative article for both practitioners and patients for the treatment of plantar fasciitis,  especially among runners and athletes. It explains how the injury is viewed and treated from an acupuncture perspective, specifically targeting trigger points in the calf that affect the foot. I treat this injury quite often for my athletes, and acupuncture with manual therapy works wonders!

One of the best parts about the Olympics is going home, plopping down on the couch, and cheering on our favorite athletes as they go for the bronze, silver and gold. Yet beyond the hard work and determination it takes to get these fierce competitors to the podium, something we tend to overlook are the methods and means required to keep their bodies in peak condition...

 

Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: I am SO happy to see that acupuncture is being used at the world's largest sports competition: the Olympic games.

Providing acupuncture to the top athletes of the world would be my dream job!

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.
