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.

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...

Practitioners raised and educated in the modern world can benefit from his creative inspiration...

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.

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...

Eat less and exercise more.


Is this what you hear often?

 

You’ve worked out on the bike for the last 6 weeks and instead of losing weight you gained 5 lbs. You feel your metabolism fell asleep...

 

Editor´s Note: This article explains the effects of acupuncture on weight loss. I've found in my clinical practice that acupuncture helps a lot with cravings, improves digestion, and decreases stress. As the author explains, acupuncture is a small piece to the bigger puzzle of lifestyle, diet, and exercise changes. It is a great tool for overall health!

Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: Integrative medicine at it's finest. A US hospital combines Eastern and Western medicine in this news segment about a breast cancer patient unable to take pain medication during surgery. I love how the surgeon has a mind-body approach and recognizes the benefit of offering acupuncture not only before or after surgery, but during the surgery itself! Amazing.
