Contact our editors about acupuncture healing & other alternative healing medicines online today! 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.

Despite our disdain for pain, it actually serves a purpose, and a valuable one at that. Pain is part of our body's defense system and its purpose is to help us avoid harmful behavior. In other words, it's your body's way of telling you that it doesn't like what you are doing and it would prefer that you stop doing it. Sometimes we choose not to listen to that message and other times we have no choice but to hear it and comply...

You’re sitting comfortably in a restaurant waiting for your appetizers to arrive when it happens. It feels as if someone abruptly set the thermostat 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Beads of sweat begin to form on your forehead and neck and you wonder if your face is getting beet red...

Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: I LOVE this video! Acupuncture is being offered at a Children's Hospital to be used in conjunction with Western Medicine. The two-month year old, Ricky, in the video has been getting treatments since he was 6 weeks old. How young a person can receive acupuncture is a common question. I always refer to my pediatric acupuncture professor's response, saying that as soon as the baby is born he/she can benefit from acupuncture. I hope this video educates parents that there are natural treatments even for the youngest of patients.

Researchers from Georgetown recently showed that acupuncture in rats reduces a protein that’s associated with stress. While this gives hope to those for whom molecules make more sense than qi, it remains to be seen whether the findings can be replicated in humans...

 

Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: This informative article discusses the trigger-point pain referral patterns that cause "TMJ", which stands for temporomandibular joint. Jaw pain is a very common condition, caused by various factors such as stress, posture, and emotional tension. Although Western medicine offers few effective treatments, acupuncture is an excellent option to release muscle tension, decrease stress, and promote overall balance in the body.

The scroll of Zen Buddhist monk Sengai (1750-1838) entitled Circle, Triangle, and Square is a concise symbolic expression of classical (Neijing style) Chinese medical thinking. While this brush painting may not be language in the conventional sense, it articulates Sengai's intention with clarity and power. Practitioners raised and educated in the modern world can benefit from his creative inspiration...

Doshi, a board certified anesthesiologist, who found relief from acupuncture, and decided to pursue and practice medical acupuncture on her own. It's fantastic!

In acupuncture theory, each sense has a corresponding organ. The organ associated with sight is Liver, so a Liver imbalance often is suspected in people who seek acupuncture for poor vision. However, although the Liver is at least partially implicated in the majority of eye-related cases, it doesn’t always tell the whole story...

 

Editor's Note: Few people think about Chinese medicine for treatment of eye diseases, but we do effectively treat many eye conditions. Here Sara Calabro, acupuncturist and journalist discusses treating the eye with Chinese medicine.

On the quest for total body health and wellness, we’ll inevitably be met with new tips and terms along the way. And while the Chinese therapy known as gua sha may be widely known among Eastern medical practitioners, at least among us Westerners, some may be less aware...

 

Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: This article explains the benefits and uses of a Chinese medicine modality called gua sha. In conjunction with acupuncture and herbs, this technique can effectively treat many conditions such as muscle soreness, scoliosis, and pain. Ask your acupuncturist if it can be beneficial for you!

Editor´s Note: I absolutely love this! Pets are showcased getting alternative treatments such as physical therapy, hydrotherapy, and acupuncture. Pet owners give great testimonials of how effective acupuncture is for their pet's ailments. The proof is definitely in the pudding!

 

Acupuncture/TCM

Modern Chinese medical theory is based on the zangfu (vital and hollow organs), especially as they generate, distribute, and manage the physical humors that conduct life (qi, blood, fluids).Practitioners learn to differentiate excesses and deficiencies of those humors relative to one or more of the zangfu, and formulate treatment strategies that counter those manifest imbalances.Most diagnostic patterns reference zang which contain influences, rather than fu which conveythem through the individual. The primary channels function as extensions of the zangfu, and are treated with acupuncture or moxa to address their imbalances...

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.
