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.

Western Medicine has traditionally been resistant to alternative therapies, focusing on the management of disease after it presents, often ignoring the fact that a particular organ or system actually belongs to a person or patient. Alternative therapies and traditional medicine in many cultures, have focused on the whole person and have generally asked the questions about causation and methods of prevention...

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, isn’t as official as it sounds. Frozen shoulder just refers to shoulder pain that leads to restricted range of motion. It is a catch-all diagnosis for shoulder pain and immobility for which the underlying cause is unknown...

The concept of sweet that we tend to think of in the west is very different from the way traditional systems, like Chinese medicine classify sweet foods. Sweet foods in any traditional system include nearly all vegetables, meats, as well as whole grains and legummes. These foods comprise the basis of a healthy diet...

Licensed for more than 20 years, Bower sees both children and adults with ADHD, and says for them acupuncture is a complimentary form of medicine.

It works well in addition to other treatments, such as behavioral therapy and nutritional plans. Acupuncture is based on the theory that the body's energy or "qi" flows freely when you are well. But, it can become blocked or weakened...

 

Editor's Note: This is a great article explaining ADHD, which is a very common condition affecting many children and adults. Acupuncture treatments are used to balance the person's organ systems and internal energy, which in turn alleviates the symptoms of hyperactivity, impulsivity, and anxiety among other things. A patient's own experience is highlighted as to how well the treatments have worked for her. Acupuncture is a great alternative or adjunct to medication and other therapies.

How many people do you know who suffer from occasional (or frequent) sleeplessness? How many colleagues have you overheard in the break room, pouring that third cup of coffee, and recounting the way they just lay there, staring at the ceiling...

 

Editor’s Note: Acupuncture is highly effective for stress relief. This may be one of the major reasons why it is so versatile. So many conditions, including insomnia are caused or aggravated by unmanaged stress.

PTSD can be triggered by a wide range of events including - but definitely not limited to - a violent assault, disasters (natural or human-caused), an accident or military combat...

Have you ever wondered why the downward facing dog yoga position is so popular and believed to be so good for the body? One author and acupuncturist tells us why we should strike this pose...

 

Editor's Note: This article combines theories from my two favorite practices in life: acupuncture and yoga! The author explains why one of the most common poses in yoga is also great for opening the bladder meridian, which is the longest channel in the body. I often tell my patients to do acupuncture and yoga right after one another for this reason!

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.
