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.

One of the great challenges of aging is that ailments frequently descend on individuals for no apparent reason. People who have been generally “healthy” and it suddenly and themselves confronted by pains and other limitations. Sometimes, serious illnesses arise without discernable precipitating factors. Many people are left with the awful questions: “Why me?” and “Why now?”

Holidays, whether fun or stressful, are nothing if not distracting. With them now past, people may notice the return of emotional symptoms that surfaced just before the holiday season began.

Editor's Note: Many people react strongly to seasonal changes and often feel better when someone explains to them that according to Chinese medicine, these are natural changes in mood and not necessarily a sign of dysfunction.

Albizia julibrissin (合欢) is a commonly used herb in Chinese medicine to calm the spirit. Both the flower and bark are used, and they are both used to calm the spirit, but they also have some differences...


Editor’s Note:
Albizia is one of my favorite herbs to use clinically. Patients with depression notice a sense of calm and inspiration. Acupuncture helps a lot with depression as well, but if I had my back to the wall I'd pick albizia.

"I had been on many different medications over the years. The only one I ever found to be truly effective was lithium, but the side effects were debilitating. The medications made me so sick. With bipolar, you’re not always out of balance, so it gets to a point where the problem is more often the medication than the 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.
