Acupuncture/TCM


by Norma-Jean Strickland,
ATH Co-Editor of Therapeutic Storytelling

In 1999, just before my 47th birthday, I had major surgery for the first time in my life. It was invasive because it involved removal of an organ, so a hospital stay was required, together with several weeks of recuperation at home. Needless to say, before the actual date of surgery, I was consumed with thoughts of this procedure...

 

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: It's important to listen to what you're telling your Self because you always listen, especially at the deepest subconscious level.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


 

Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: I use electric acupuncture a lot in my private practice. It works great for muscle pain, tendonitis, and arthritis among many conditions. Many patients ask to see what it looks like when the leads are attached to the needles. Here is a quick demonstration of a typical treatment.

 

Acupuncture/TCM

Working in the medical world, I get to see many situations where simple, easy, hypnosis could be used. There are everyday medical procedures that frighten many patients. Such is getting your blood taken or even getting a shot. Some patients get so frightened that they actually can faint. Sometimes people actually get so frightened that their veins constrict and get smaller, therefore, making it even more difficult to start an IV line. Some people will never go to a doctor because of this fear...

 

Hypnotherapy


 

 

Editor's Note: This is a simple acupressure tutorial anyone can try for relieving back pain. Acupressure is a type of energy medicine that has roots in acupuncture, but you use your own touch instead of needles.

 

Energy Medicine


by Ziki Dekel, LAc

Acupuncture is one of the oldest systems of medicine still practiced today. It has its roots in ancient East Asia and its practice can be dated as far back as the Stone Age in China. The basic precept of acupuncture is that illness and pain are the result of blockages and imbalances that can be corrected through the insertion of hair-thin needles into specific points on the body. When inserted, the needles access the body's reserve of vital energy, called Qi. To fully understand acupuncture we have to consider some of the philosophical traditions behind Chinese medicine...

"In 1844, American inventor Elias Howe, puzzling over how to design sewing machine needles, reportedly woke from a dream in which he was being chased by cannibals carrying spears with holes in the pointed tips. He then realized that machine needles would need holes at the front end."

Dream Medicine


 

by Jack Rowe

A 'swale' is simply a long, shallow depression in the ground, designed to collect or redirect water. In general, permaculture swales are used to mimic the water-collecting and -holding abilities of a thick forest mulch.

Swales are most useful in reforestation of degraded, mostly-bare, arid or semi-arid hillsides, to direct water to trees (this water would otherwise run off the bare soil and be lost to the local landscape). In a healthy forest with a thick mulch of leaves or needles covering the ground, very little runoff occurs and swales would usually be unnecessary. A healthy forest is very good at managing its own water resources—if it ain't broke, spend your time fixing something that is.


Editor’s notes: Swales are ditches that are created to help water seep into the soil, making it more available to plants rather than letting the water run off your land.  This also prevents erosion of precious soil. Here’s a description of different kinds of swales.
