Acupuncture Treatment for Personal
Acupuncture is based on a concept called “Qi” (or vital energy or life force), that flows through “channels” or “meridians” throughout our bodies. It nourishes and gives life and well-being to every part and aspect of us.
The purpose of acupuncture treatment is to restore or enhance the balance and flow of Qi. This is done by stimulating specific acupuncture points. The points where the needles are placed are points where you can access the Qi and thus tonify it, disperse it, or move it – causing the Qi to become more balanced in its flow.
Acupuncture works on many different levels at one time. Since acupuncture balances and enhances the Qi, which pervades all levels of human being, people find that as they go through acupuncture treatment they feel better in the following ways:
The Levels on which Acupuncture Works
Physically – people typically find their way to acupuncture treatment for relief of physical complaints such as pain or
Mentally -- many people find that when they have acupuncture treatment they experience less stress and anxiety, more energy, and greater clarity of
Emotionally -- people will often experience the release of sadness or anger or frustration during or after acupuncture
treatment. Some people experience laughter during acupuncture, and some people feel filled with joy or bliss with the treatment. Acupuncture treatment can be very helpful for dealing with depression, anger, frustration, etc., and many people specifically seek acupuncture treatment for these issues.
Personal Well-being -- Acupuncture treatment enhances
personal well-being as well. When the Qi or energy is flourishing and flowing well a person can experience a clearer connection to their
higher self. This can manifest in many ways:
A general sense of well-being
A feeling of greater freedom in life
A stronger sense of peace with one’s self; less resistance to life
A clearer vision of one’s purpose in life
A sense of personal empowerment
Better overall energy
Greater confidence in one’s self
Greater acceptance of others and where they are in their lives (less need to change or fix others, etc.)\
Decreased negative judgments about events or people
Increased ability to trust your gut or your instincts
Greater insight and intuition
Greater ability to make decisions based on what feels right to you rather than what those around you want or society dictates
Greater clarity about what you want and greater ability to create it
Greater joy in life
Although many people come to me for acupuncture treatment for health problems they are experiencing, I have developed a method of
acupuncture that specifically addresses these more personal-growth or
(what might be termed) spiritual-growth issues. If the ideas presented
here are of interest to you, give this form of treatment a try.
Here are some of the experiences that others have had with it:
I initially came to see Lisa for treatment of several physical ailments. As the treatments progressed, not only did I heal physically, but wonderful thing began to happen to me emotionally and spiritually as well. My once fluctuating moods leveled out; I’m now rarely sad, depressed or angry. I love life and even through very difficult times I can find joyful moments. I established a deep connection with my soul-self and began to look at life more positively. This allowed me to create a clear vision of who I am and what I want to do with my life. I’ve made several positive major life changes with ease and self-confidence, never doubting that I was making the right decisions. Acupuncture helped heal me body and soul and enabled me to change my entire life for the better. --MMB
“It was not the regular, subtle effects of acupuncture I had come to expect. Midway through the session it was as if an enormous wave of energy -- the tsunami of energy waves -- crashed into me. The instant it did, I felt my body expand far beyond its physical space, opening up and receiving an incredible amount of light. Then I was soaring over a forest -- not visualizing this as a scene, but actually flying above the trees. The whole experience was very intense, and in some ways, difficult to process -- but I feel that it pushed me to the next stage in my healing, brought me to a higher level, that otherwise I might have been reluctant to try; I think of it as a big nudge from the universe, helping me along my path.” --Heather
After Lisa’s treatment I felt a great sense of connection and calm, as the gap between ego and spirit closed and my soul was free to emerge. --Julie Smith
