Interview with John Kennedy, Acupuncture Physician, Quantum-Touch Instructor at http://www.quantumtouch.com/...
Many of us use acupuncture or acupressure to relax, to relieve pain, or to just balance and harmonize our body, mind and spirit. Acupuncture and acupressure can be used to treat any illness (a blockage or an imbalance), or for prevention (maintaining balance and harmony). Acupuncture works very well in all of these areas. In acupuncture treatment we select specific acupoints based on the symptoms and on the diagnosed root cause. Needles inserted into or pressure placed on these acupoints cause movement of energy. This energy movement causes blood and qi to flow smoothly within the body, breaking down blockages, and causing symptoms to mitigate or disappear and the body to begin the healing of the root cause. This is a simplistic view of how acupuncture and acupressure work but, never the less, accurate.
Acupuncture is also very powerful in building and maintaining a strong immune system, and releasing blockages that cause emotional problems. There are many people in our society that could benefit greatly from acupuncture but are afraid of needles, or find the needles painful. Many of these try acupressure, but most just stay away.
A key component of the Oriental Medical Model (acupuncture, herbology, nutrition, lifestyle and exercise) is intention. (Actually, intention plays a key role in everything that we do. If your intention is always directed at doing the things that will bring good health, then you will have good health because you are exercising, eating the correct foods, getting the appropriate amount of sleep and rest, and your mind is dwelling on the positive, not the negative.) When the Acupuncture Physician selects a specific set of points or a specific herbal formula for treatment he/she has the intention that these points and the formula will be beneficial in resolving the problem. This intention is a very important part of the solution equation.
In most states in the US it takes a minimum of four to five years of study to become licensed in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
"Acupuncture works wonderfully to open the patient's own chi to flow freely which facilitates normal healing. Quantum-Touch however can add an entirely new vibration of energy to that flow which may allow for astonishing healing. It can be thought of like the difference between writing a love letter to yourself, or receiving one from somebody else. There is a magnificent surprise factor in someone else's love/energy that can work miracles."
Like Acupuncture, Quantum-Touch works to powerfully amplify the healing potential.
