Psycho Spiritual Acupuncture
Psycho Spiritual Acupuncture believes that treating a patient at the level of consciousness affects all other body systems. Emotional and spiritual health lie at the heart of Chinese Medicine, where it is taught that our bodies follow our energy, and our energy follows our consciousness.
In traditional Chinese medicine, emotions and physical health are intimately connected. Sadness, nervous tension and anger, worry, fear, and overwork are each associated with a particular organ in the body. For example, irritability and inappropriate anger can affect the liver and result in menstrual pain, headache, redness of the face and eyes, dizziness and dry mouth.
A diagnosis in traditional Chinese medicine is highly individualized. Once an organ system is identified, the unique symptoms of the patient determine the practitioner’s treatment approach.
Emotional balance is vital for good heart health. In traditional Chinese medicine, the heart is considered the emperor of the body. It sets the tone and direction for the rest of the organ systems to follow. Emotion correlates with a meridian system in the body. Because we are an integrated whole, a problem that originates in one area has the potential to affect all others.
In helping to facilitate a free flow of emotions, we help the Heart to transcend and integrate them. When we are no longer at the mercy of our emotions, we are better able to hear the deepest parts of our selves speaking to us. The whole point of acupuncture is to facilitate the Qi moving differently in the body, so it has the potential to help with anxiety, fears, worries, depression, and other emotional imbalances.
