Classical Acupunture is distinct from commonly practiced acupuncture. It is a rare, holistic medical system that encompasses a complete understanding of the development of illness, treats an incredibly wide array of conditions, and a brilliant, specific and detailed theoretical understanding of optimum health. Classical Acupuncture is not to be confused with Traditional Chinese Medicine . Classical Acupuncture treatments are comparatively labor intensive and time consuming. Particular attention is paid to the manner of insertion and manipulation of each needle (which differ markedly for each type of meridian), and to the resulting intricate changes to the flow of qi in the meridians.
Electroacupuncture is quite similar to traditional acupuncture in that the same points are stimulated during treatment. As with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted on specific points along the body. The needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips. These devices are used to adjust the frequency and intensity of the impulse being delivered, depending on the condition being treated. Electroacupuncture uses two needles at time so that the impulses can pass from one needle to the other. Several pairs of needles can be stimulated simultaneously, usually for no more than 30 minutes at a time.
PLUM BLOSSOM NEEDLING
The ancients gave the name of ‘plum-blossom’ needle to the five needles bound together like a plum-blossom and ‘seven-star’ needle to the bundle of seven needles. The handle is flexible and allows for superficial tapping of the needle head on the skin. This causes an inflammation of the skin but not the flesh and allows the release of congestion and pain in the superficial muscle. Although it sounds barbaric, it actually inflicts very little pain. Deep tissue massage is far more painful.
Auriculotherapy, or auricular therapy, or ear acupuncture, or auriculoacupuncture is a form of alternative medicine based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem which reflects the entire body, represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear. Conditions affecting the physical, mental or emotional health of the patient are assumed to be treatable by stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively.
Scalp acupuncture is a specialized form of acupuncture that has helped many people with nervous-system disorders, including spinal cord injury (SCI) and multiple sclerosis (MS). Supplementing traditional body acupuncture, specific areas, such as the ear, foot, hand, and scalp, represent acupunctural microsystems for the entire body. Through treating a localized microsystem, health-enhancing energy flow (also called qi) can be stimulated in virtually any body part. Although the scalp acupuncture microsystem can treat most of the same disorders as traditional acupuncture, it is especially effective in treating nervous-system disorders and pain.
