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.

Laughing is ingrained in us from birth. Infants begin smiling during the first weeks of life and laugh out loud within months of being born. Laughter becomes an important part of our daily lives from then on. So why is laughter so important and what does it do for us?...

 

Editor's Note: Oh the power of laughter! This article explains the affects of stress on the body, mind, and immune system. Laughter, along with acupuncture, are shown to have the same physiological responses on the body which can help manage stress. Laughter may be just what the doctor ordered.

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...

It artfully explains the anatomy of the shoulder, causes of injuries, and ways to recover. Acupuncture and a few at-home tips will get you back in the pool, gym, or baseball field in no time at all!

When you’ve only got a desert to work with, how does one become a farmer?
How about grow a highly sought after Chinese herb that happens to love the desert. That’s exactly what one desert nomad started doing in China’s unforgiving deserts of Inner Mongolia in 2003...


 

Editor's Note: Herbalist Cathy Margolin, LAc provides some interesting information about how Rou Cong Rong grows in this informative article.

Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: I LOVE this video! Acupuncture is being offered at a Children's Hospital to be used in conjunction with Western Medicine. The two-month year old, Ricky, in the video has been getting treatments since he was 6 weeks old. How young a person can receive acupuncture is a common question. I always refer to my pediatric acupuncture professor's response, saying that as soon as the baby is born he/she can benefit from acupuncture. I hope this video educates parents that there are natural treatments even for the youngest of patients.

 

Acupuncture/TCM


by Renee Woodruff

I didn't have a targeted purpose for trying acupuncture, although I'd be lying if I didn't admit I was curious about the possibility of "curing" my never ending tummy troubles. Outside of that, I was looking at it from a more holistic and preventative perspective. I wanted to see if going to acupuncture on a regular basis would help with my stress levels...

 

Editor's Note: I love this blog post! Truthful, candid, reader-friendly, and informative perspective of why every woman should try acupuncture. Renee's curiosity to try acupuncture proved to be quite the success in improving her overall health and wellbeing.

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.

Millions of people all over the world suffer from seasonal allergies. Acupuncture is one way to help deal with this problem.

 

We experience allergies when the body’s immune system overreacts to common substances in the environment. Grass pollens in summer are a common allergen, and in the fall some people may react to the presence of mold spores...
