What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture, according to acupuncturists, is a medical treatment involving the insertion of very fine sterile needles into the body at specific points according to a mapping of "energy pathways."
Weight Loss according to Traditional Chinese Medicine
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the root of excess weight is an imbalance within the body caused by malfunctioning of the spleen and liver organ systems. Acupuncture for weight loss is really a modern application rooted in Western cultures. In five-element theory, the spleen is responsible for the proper functioning of the digestive system, ensuring that the food we eat is transformed into Qi — the vital substance of life. Disharmony of the spleen will have symptoms such as fatigue, slow metabolism, water retention, loose stool, and feeling of heaviness.
Acupuncture Points for Weight Loss
Acupuncture points on the ears have been found to be particularly effective for weight loss. The human ear contains points relating to all major organs and body parts.
Springtime and the Wood Element According to Traditional Chinese Medicine
In Chinese Medicine, the spring season is associated with the Wood element. As we look around us, we are surrounded by the essence of the Wood element, the birth and growth of beautiful plants and flowers - a true signal that there has been an end to the quietness and stillness of the winter. As I work in my garden, it amazes me to witness these miracles of growth and of life. I can see life sprouting from the depths of the earth, growth through dead leaves that had fallen and collected on the ground, moving diligently under my fence and even sprouting up in between the bricks of my patio! Even after this rough winter, these plants are ready to move forward, coming forth bursting through the ground with astounding force, and always finding a way to grow. This teaches us a valuable lesson on the spirit of the Wood element, that it is full of movement, growth, strength, purpose and vitality. We are reminded that we too can move forth with purpose, ease, and progress.
The spirit of the Wood element not only exists in nature. It is in each and every one of us. In a balanced state, it promotes exuberance, clear meaning, aliveness, moving forward and upward with purpose and hope.
In an unbalanced state of the Wood element, we may feel challenged, confronted, and limited. Feelings of stress, irritability, anger, and frustration that things may not go according to plan arise. It is important to take the time to nourish the Wood element within us. The best ways to support the Wood element and encourage the movement of energy within us is: body movement like dancing, stretching, walking, hiking, running, yoga, massage, deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, acupuncture, tai chi, meditating, and spending time in nature. We can always look to the plants, flowers and trees to remind us of the potential of growth and change welling up inside us, giving us the hope and courage to envision the future. Things in our lives may not always manifest as we have envisioned but the possibilities of growth and change are boundless. - By Gurneet M. Singh, Acupuncturist
