Traditional Chinese Oriental Medicine is one important modality used to promote healing, improve functioning and prevent health problems.

Acupuncture can help ease many health problems including:

chronic pain
Auto Immune disorders
back and neck pain
asthma, allergies and sinus issues
anxiety and depression

The bare facts:
Very thin needles are inserted at precise acupuncture points on the surface of the body. These acupuncture points are located along channels of energy called meridians which run in patterns throughout the body. Meridians can be likened to rivers of energy that irrigate and nourish the tissues of the body. From a TCOM view, illnesses manifest as obstructions of energy along these rivers causing a back up in the flow. This back up creates a dam at certain points and restricts flow at other points, both of which manifest as uncomfortable physical, mental and/or emotional symptoms. When the acupuncture needles are inserted at specific points, the obstructions in the meridians are unblocked, the dams are released and flow is reestablished. Acupuncture treatments are thus highly effective for stimulating the body’s natural ability regain and maintain balance. Problematic symptoms automatically subside as flow and balance is restored.
Although it has been practiced for over 5,000 years, it only has been within the past several decades that acupuncture has grown in popularity in the United States. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration estimates that Americans make as many as 12 million visits per year to acupuncturists.

Esoteric Acupuncture

“Esoteric Acupuncture is not merely another form of acupuncture treatment. Esoteric Acupuncture defines a “way of life.” This way of life emphasizes the awakening and expansion of our spiritual center (not the same as religions). This way of life includes the importance of understanding the vibrational frequencies of the foods and drinks we ingest. Everything we eat and drink shapes our multiple energy fields. It is important to only ingest foods of the cleanest and highest vibrations. Energy is transported through our hands, fingers and mind through the acupuncture needle into the client. Energy is a transporter of information. What information are you transmitting to your client?

The phrase Esoteric Acupuncture is broken up into three sections. Esoteric means something that is not readily known. There may be other meanings not understood by the casual reader or those not versed in esoteric teachings. Acupuncture comes from two words. “Acus” is a Latin word that means needle or obelisk. In esoteric teachings, obelisk can also mean a temple. Puncture means to pierce. Therefore, we are piercing your “temple” (your physical body) to activate or to reach something esoteric within. This esoteric “something” is the alignment, strengthening and refining your Heart Center. This Heart Center is the field that opens up infinite possibilities for your journey on planet Earth. We are interested in raising the vibrations of your Heart Center and to connect this center with all your denser frequency fields of consciousness including: your dense physical, etheric, astral and mental fields, plus accessing and activating the buddhic, atmic, monadic and logoic fields of cosnciousness. It is possible for some of you to access solar, galactic and cosmic consciousness with repeated Esoteric Acupuncture treatments.”
