Acupuncture points can be portals into the inner world of the body, mind, spirit and soul.  The concepts of Yin and Yang and the five elements are expressions of all that exists in nature and the universe-male, female, colors, numbers, sounds, seasons, organs, emotions, etc.  Light Body Therapy shows you the connections of all things.

When you see the vast wealth of possibility that Oriental Medicine and both gentle and deep tissue bodywork offer, then you can begin to live a life which does not violate the universal principles of Karma, Dharma, Love, Health, Happiness, Harmony and Prosperity.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is defined very simply in the Oxford American Dictionary (1980) as “pricking the tissues of the body with fine needles to relieve pain or as a local anesthetic.”  In fact, the art and science of acupuncture, herbology and Traditional Chinese Medicine is very complex, holistic, and comprehensive, based upon a large body of knowledge and wisdom collected over thousands of years of observation, documentation, and practical application.  

What is the History of Acupuncture?

Acupuncture needles and ancient medicine book

The foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is built upon books Huangdi Neijing (Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic) by Zhang Zhongjing and Wang Bing, Yi Jing (I Ching-Book of Change) by Confucius, and texts of medical scholars including Shennong Bencaojing (Divine Husbandman’s Classic) by Shennong and Bian Qiao, Maijing (The Pulse Classics) by Wang Shuhe, (Prescriptions for Emergencies) by Ge Hong, as well as guidelines for living according to Taoism and Confucianism.  

Many of the practices and understanding of the ancient traditions were gradually lost in the pursuit of Western ways from the 16th century with the establishment of the Portuguese Saint Raphael’s Hospital near Guangzhou, until the Cultural Revolution 1966-1976 when Chairman Mao Tse-tung encouraged youth to go out into the villages and utilize the age-old methods to provide medical assistance as “Barefoot Doctors.”  

Today one can be treated in hospitals in China that offer either Western diagnosis and treatment or Tradtional Chinese Medicine, including tuina massage, cupping, moxibustion (heat), guasha (rubbing), acupuncture, and herbal formulas. 

In the twenty-first century acupuncture has become a popular, accepted treatment modality for pain relief and health maintenance, sought out by doctors and hospital systems promoting integrative medicine, and by conscientious individuals.  

How Does Acupuncture Work?

An acupuncturist is not limited to inserting needles into acupuncture points to relieve symptoms.  Acupressure, aromatherapy, laser, light and heat can also be applied to refocus the body.  The channels or pathways which connect and relate to specific organs are located below the skin surface, running along the fascia.  

Stimulation of an acupuncture point creates a neuro-hormonal reaction in the brain, leading to the release of endorphins and a sensation of numbness around the point and along the meridian, inducing light euphoria. Pressing or puncturing a point that is not an acupuncture point will not result in a similar response.   The presence of an acupuncture point can be measured electrically as reduced skin resistance or impedance.

Kirlian photography captures the image of a tiny beam of light emerging from an acupuncture point, as well as from a major or minor chakra or “wheel,” well understood in Ayurvedic medicine and yoga. If the body is healthy, it glows with radiant energy, as seen in pictures of saints and enlightened souls such as Jesus Christ and Buddha. 

Imagine that the human body is filled with electrical voltage, like a battery, that keeps it alive through the beating of the heart, which is a pump, and consciousness through the brain and spirit. This human being has an energy field, or aura (from the Latin word “aurum,” gold), that can change colors and shape, depending on mood or state of mind.

Conventional medicine sees the body as a machine with separate parts, including brain and teeth, that can be fixed or replaced, or as a system of muscles, bones, veins, tissues, and internal organs, held together with a covering of membranes and skin, where deviations from the norm indicate disease.  Oriental Medicine regards the body as a dynamic, pulsating, perceptive entity attempting to live in balance with nature, subject to inner and outer influences. 

There are lines of energy which circulate vertically, externally through the head, torso, and limbs, along the fascia, and internally through organs, like a highway network of lights, where lymph, body fluids and essences are constantly flowing.  If there is injury, surgical scars, dental work, metal implants, foreign matter, atrophy, or disturbance from EMF or radiation, a short circuit occurs, the lights shut down, the body does not function optimally, or there is numbness or “pain.”  

The sources of the blockage must be identified, like a burnt-out light bulb, which sometimes may originate in the gut or in the mouth, or due to toxins, stress, or any number of internal or external “pathogens,” such as excess heat, cold, dampness (humidity), dryness, or wind (weather, air conditioning).  

Hands-on stimulation of areas and points where trauma has been locked into the “muscle memory” can release long-held events from the past, opening the door to spiritual, mental, emotional and/or physical recovery.

The internet provides a rich variety of explanations of Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture.

Today there are many classics as well as books about new methods and microsystems which utilize reflex points on different areas of the body, such as the scalp, face, ear, mouth, back, spine, hands and feet, thus expanding possibilities for diagnosis and treatment.  

There are computer software and devices which can measure and analyze the flow of “vital breath,” QI, or electrical voltage, which moves through the meridians or channels of the body, that can help to analyze the blockages and remove them with frequency, quantum biofeedback, or other types of stimulation.  Dr. Yee offers Bio-energetic assessments as part of her formidable range of services.

In the system of Electro-Acupuncture according to Voll (EAV), that combines Eastern and Western concepts of holistic medicine, as much as 50-80% of all health issues are related to the oral condition of the teeth.  Dr. Rheinhold Voll, a German doctor, emphasized that chronic problems in any part of the body would not improve unless the dental breakdown was addressed.

How will I benefit?

The questions you must honestly ask yourself are: “Do I really want to get better, to be healthy and happy? Do I want to create good relationships and a harmonious life?  Am I willing to let go of the past, of my pain, and complaint?  Am I determined to make it a long-term commitment so that I may have enthusiasm and determination to carry out my life purpose and be of service to mankind?” 

The choice is yours, to temporarily be relieved of pain or to better understand and accept that your dis-ease is a process of purification.

Acupuncture is an excellent means to resolve chronic or acute pain, anxiety, depression, female issues, headaches, PTSD, and much more.  The World Health Organization recognizes 117 conditions that Oriental Medicine can treat.  Acupuncture is non-toxic, non-invasive, using disposable, high-quality, stainless steel needles, with occasional minor side effects of bruising, lightheadedness, or slight bleeding.  

If a Chinese medical physician kept his patient healthy, then he was considered to be fulfilling his mission and was paid for his services.  Here is a fascinating excerpt from the work of a brilliant medical scholar and physician Ban Qiao:

“Ban Qiao’s handling of the Marquis Qi Huan of the ancient state of Qi serves as a cautionary tale.  While dining with the Marquis, Bian Qiao told him that he had a latent disease that should be treated immediately.  The Marquis replied that he certainly was not ill.  Five days later Bian Qiao saw the Marquis again and informed him that the disease had entered the blood.  The Marquis responded by saying that he was not only well but was also becoming rather annoyed.  

After another five days, Bian Qiao told the Marquis that the disease was in the stomach and intestines, but he received the same response.  After five more days, Bian Qiao again came into the Marquis’ presence, but this time the physician said nothing and backed out of the room.  His action upset the Marquis, who immediately sent a messenger to get an explanation for this strange behavior.  

Bian Qiao replied with devastating logic:
When a disease was only skin deep it may be reached by concoctions and applications, when in the blood system by puncturing, when in the stomach and intestines by alcoholic extracts.  But when it had penetrated the bone marrow, what could a doctor do?  Now that the disease has lodged in His Excellency’s bone marrow, it is useless for me to make further comments.

The Marquis became ill five days later, as Bian Qiao had predicted, and died shortly thereafter.  This story is a beautiful example of the Chinese emphasis on preventive or early treatment rather than on attempts to cure a disease in its advanced stages.” (from Encyclopedia Britannica on Traditional Chinese Medicine)
