Acupuncture treatment begins with a diagnosis of the individual’s patterns of imbalance. The purpose of the diagnosis is to establish which body-mind functions require balancing for a specific condition to improve and which are important for your overall energy and vitality.
The body mind and spirit is represented through 12 main pathways, meridians. Each is associated with an organ. Whether an organ is not functioning is revealed in many ways, for example pulse, tongue, facial color, odor, sound of the voice, emotional state, taste preferences, and the distribution of hot and cold in the body.
Acupuncture is the insertion of fine stainless steel needles into acupuncture points. Stimulating the points sends energy where it is needed, to organs that are hypo functioning, or meridians and locations where there is lack. Sedating gets pathogens and excesses out of the organism: Viruses out of the lungs, stress and stagnation, or toxic heat.
Moxibustion is activating the points with the application of warmth. That is of course important in damp and cold climates.
