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.

Dr. Roy Buchinsky had a male patient in his 50s with chronic pain in his right ankle and pain in many of his joints. Anti-inflammatories and narcotics had not helped...

 

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.

As an acupuncturist, I do a lot of myth debunking. It’s understandable. After all, acupuncture speaks an entirely different language from the one through which most Westerners learned to see the world. However, with acupuncture continuing to grow in popularity and gain acceptance by mainstream medicine, it’s important to clarify a few myths and misconceptions that have a strong hold on our collective psyche...

 

Editor's Note: This is a fun, easy-to-grasp article that explains five common acupuncture myths. As an acupuncturist myself, I too spend a lot of time explaining how acupuncture feels, what it does, and if it works. The author is sure to put some misconceptions to rest, and offers insight into how this ancient medicine fits into modern times.

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.

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...

 

Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: This article explains the benefits and uses of a Chinese medicine modality called gua sha. In conjunction with acupuncture and herbs, this technique can effectively treat many conditions such as muscle soreness, scoliosis, and pain. Ask your acupuncturist if it can be beneficial for you!

The National Cancer Institute estimates that 1 in 8 women in America will develop breast cancer at some time in her life. Exposure to chemicals, unhealthy lifestyle and genetic predisposition may all play a role in the development of breast cancer but the single most significant risk factor is growing older. Cancer of the breast is no longer viewed as a single entity but a “family” of cancers, and increasingly more specific diagnostic and treatment approaches are beginning to yield better outcomes for patients, including women with metastatic disease...

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.
