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.

Although assisted reproduction techniques like IVF and ICSI have been in use since the 1970s, they are still something of an inexact science. Success rates for each therapy range from as low as 1% to as high as 50%, and a successful pregnancy depends on a variety of factors, including the age of the woman, the cause of infertility, and the skill of the technician performing the procedure. Acupuncture is a useful tool for patients looking to increase their chances of becoming pregnant following assisted reproduction therapy...

 Acupuncture/TCM


by Dr. Hyun K. Lee

Living in North America, we are conditioned to the idea that one doesn’t go to the doctor until one is sick. For western medicine, this makes plenty of sense, but the same can’t be said for eastern medicine. Oriental Medicine is effective when you are sick, but it is most effective when you’re not...

Editor's Note: Acupuncture and other natural therapies are becoming more integrated into Western healthcare settings. This article showcases patient testimonials from University Hospitals of using acupuncture for pain relief. I love how many Western physicians value the effectiveness of acupuncture and are referring their patients to receive acupuncture, reiki, massage and more.

 

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!

For better or for worse, New York is a 24-hour city and anything can be done at any time. Some of us just don't get to bed early enough and have to get up early the next day regardless. Others are so taxed physically, emotionally and spiritually that we have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep or both.
 
This article will explore sleep issues from both the Western and TCM perspectives and discuss treatments modalities...

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.
