Embodied Acupuncture Today!
Classically, acupuncture and energy work was part of a complete system of medicine that we now call Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Rooted in Zen and Daoist traditions from Japan, Korea, Vietnam and southeast Asia, our texts date back over 3 thousand years.
Classical Acupuncture was alchemy: physical, emotional or spiritual pain were transformed into precious experiences and released; healing comes with mindfulness, compassion, and understanding.
Embodied Acupuncture (TM) was developed in 2020 as a response to stress and trauma sustained by medical workers overwhelmed by COVID during the shut-down. This deeply intuitive massage /energy work instantly removes the energy blockages that cause pain and disease. Based on the classical meridian system, the chakra system in classical Ayurveda, and the principles of somatic body movement therapy, the sessions gently restore powerful self-healing circuits that were previously blocked from stress, scar tissue, and trauma. Sessions are highly individualized and may include tissue work, energy work, counseling, and massage. Patients must be invested in the process and willing to perform their own self-care exercises.
The work is visible to the naked eye, as well as the rejuvenation in the tissue areas including nerve damage, and our patients begin to see and feel their own energy patterns in the body. Due to the deep nature of this work, there must be good compatibility between the patient and practitioner, so it can take up to 3 sessions to determine if we are a fit. If you cannot objectively feel things within 3-4 sessions, it means that there is more cleanout work to do, and I provide referrals to practitioners with whom I feel will be helpful. Referrals may include recommendations for intuitive or NARM-based relational therapy, Feldenkrais, Rolfing, chiropractic care, deep tissue massage, or more basic acupuncture care may be warranted. Many of my clients then many come back after more work and our progress is much more effective.
Over time, Embodied Acupuncture gently restores the proper energy flow in the body, empowering patients to heal injuries and emotional trauma more completely than we ever thought possible. Application has been expanded to work with clients with trauma, PTSD, peak performance for athletics and performance, empowerment, test anxiety, or any type of goal. As with any modality, the more chronic the condition, the more sessions will be required to resolve it. The needle style is painless, and needles are optional in this tradition so it is safe to use with children.
For more complex cases, I work more as a medical detective, treating difficult-to-address conditions that have failed other forms of therapy. My favorite patients are those who have tried other forms of treatment first, whether western medicine or long-term orthopedic issues, conditions that have not responded to PT, pills, surgery, massage or chiropractic care. Patients seeking integrative treatment for severe diagnoses requiring extensive medication (eg Type 2 diabetes, leaky gut, cardiovascular disease, cancer, autoimmunity issues, and trauma) who would like to make long-term changes in their health are also excellent clients for the office. Children with a history of medical trauma are wonderful clients, and needles are optional.
