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.

The sun is shining, the temps are up - it's summer and with the warmer season comes outdoor fun, sports and athletic activities. Unfortunately, with those sports can also come sports injuries. These athletic injuries are most often caused by trauma, like a fall or blow, or the overuse or misuse of certain muscles and the neighboring ligaments and tendons...


Editor's Note: Acupuncture is not only effective for speeding the healing of sports injuries, but it also improves athletic performance :) Acupuncturist Sharon Sherman highlights several studies demonstrating benefits of acupuncture for athletes.

 

Acupuncture/TCM


by Sara Calabro

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.

I have lots of gardens in my yard; some are in the shade, some are sunny, and some are tucked into little corners that don’t get much attention.  I like to walk around my house and check what’s been growing, what’s flowering, and what needs a little weeding.  The other day, as I was checking out the green, I began to take stock of how many plants growing in my yard are actually Chinese herbs...

 

Editor's Note: Acupuncturist and author Lynn Jaffee writes an interesting piece about Chinese herbs found in the backyard. In acupuncture college we learn the herbs in a more esoteric way: identifying them in their dried and sliced form and learning the names in Chinese and Latin. Its quite removed from looking at the actual plant growing in the garden.

Acupuncture/TCM


by Steve Alpern

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...
