Mind-body acupuncture is a powerful tool to diagnose and heal physical, emotional and spiritual disease. The essence of the therapy is to observe the energy imbalances within a person and then work to assess why these have arisen. The next stage is a process of letting go of these issues, and finally creating tools that you can utilize to help you with a new approach to life.
All healing, be it mental or physical, takes place in the present moment. Being able to be, and actually stay, present is the key to your salvation and well being. By using your consciousness in the present moment to illuminate your agitated mind you can observe its negative tendencies and redirect it towards healing. By being present with your physical and energetic self exactly as it appears in the present moment you can undergo a powerful transformation. Presence is the greatest healer; it has the power to eradicate all mental and emotional maladies if you allow it.
In most cases acupuncture is used to conclude the session. It allows you to relax while the needles re-balance the energy system. Acupuncture has a powerful effect on the mind and the body, and swiftly redistributes the blocked energy all over the body. It is critical that the patient acquires a deep understanding of the interaction between their life experience, mental state and attitude prior to the use of acupuncture. If you use only acupuncture without relating to your behavioural patterns then it is likely that the symptoms could return in the same, or another, form. By understanding the root of the problems a greater level of healing is possible.
