Mental and Emotional Aspects of the Lungs

mental aspects of lungs - chinese medicine acupuncture

As an acupuncturist, I am constantly assessing. Before my patients answer a single question, I am taking in cues as to what types of imbalances might be going on. In five-element acupuncture, the five major organ systems are the kidney, liver, lung, heart and spleen. When any of these systems are out of balance, certain physical, mental and emotional issues can manifest. Even if you aren’t experiencing a specific health issue, however, you will likely display particular personality traits that fall within these five organ systems. In the five-element world, the lungs are connected to the element of metal. continue reading »

How It Works

micro-current electro-stimulation

The Acutron device we use delivers gentle electrical pulses in the microcurrent range.  Microcurrents are closer to the body’s own innate electrical activity than the traditional milliamphere electrical therapy.

Microcurrent devices are those that output therapeutic currents regulated in the millionth of an amp, or microcurrent, range.

The high-intensity milliamp currents output by most electro-therapy devices, such as, “Tens Units”, are truly an ‘overkill’ response in most clinical cases, although some acute conditions presenting muscle spasm, gross edema and severe pain do require this overkill response for first aid purposes.

Micro-current (usually used in very low frequency level range of 0.1 – 1000 Hz): relieves pain, lifts and rejuvenates the face and body, speeds wound healing, provides effective non-needle acupuncture treatments.  When specific microcurrent frequencies are applied that target dysfunctional organs, systems and conditions it can also produce a wide gamut of remarkable health improvement effects.  Thus, leading to a higher quality of life…longer!

Color Light Therapy

Efficacy of treatment is boosted with the addition of color-wavelengths of light.  Examples include Red for depression; Purple for anxiety; Yellow or Lemon for Anger; Red,Turquoise, or Purple for trauma, or fear; Red or Orange for guilt; and Blue for insomnia.

Color Light (highest frequency range of 430 trillion – 750 trillion Hz):  Helps regulate autonomic nervous system, powerful effects on mood, affect and emotional states, direct effect on endocrine hormones, good adjunct to spiritual/soul healing practices.

Color is so effective because acupuncture points are energetic communication gateways, and highly responsive to light. According to acupuncture researcher Ion Dumitrescu of Romania: “The electrodermal points are electrical pores – concerning two-way energy exchange between the body and the environment.”

The work of German scientist Fritz Popp proved the existence of natural light communication between all living plants, animals and people. He called this phenomenon “biophoton” luminescence. Biophotons are carriers of “information,” without which our bodies are lifeless collections of molecules. According to Popp, the coherent biophoton fields within the body mainly originate in our DNA.

Color light therapy significantly enhances pain-relieving and rejuvenating effects of microcurrent.
