The points being needled this month are on the arm. The needles are inserted and gently stimulated and immediately removed. The points are like light switches to your heart. You won’t want to miss it! Please call to reserve a spot.
Friday, August 14: Inner & Outer Frontier Gates, Nei Guan/Wei Guan
Neiguan is often translated as Inner Gate or Inner Border Gate. It is also a Taoist expression - to examine oneself, a heartfelt search of one's inner world. When out of touch with what you want out of life, this point gives connection, take you inside. It is a messenger of the Emperor (Heart) who resides in the interior. Restores balance between body and mind. A good point for "broken hearts", it let's you see you will not be torn in half.
Weiguan reflects the importance of harmony and opens the gate to allow access between our internal and external environment. Has a big effect on the senses for those who don't want to see, hear or know. Triple Energizer is the social ambassador to the Heart. The party hostess who ensures everyone at the party gets what they need. She promotes harmony within the kingdom of the bodymindspirit.
These points together help to keep the gates well-oiled so there is balance between the internal and external world and healthy boundaries between the two.
Friday, August 21: Heavenly Well, Tianjing
I'd like to add that this point is particularly poignant for those whose relationship with their father was/is disrupted
Years ago when I was diagnosed with a potentially life threatening squawk, I happened upon a sage in the mountains of Virginia. This sage whispered to me "often in this life a being of great wisdom and strength comes into a life to lend support when you can't cope on your own. He or she will walk beside you, taking your arm gently enough so as not to force you in a direction, and firm enough to support you in the direction you have chosen." I envisioned that being taking hold of my elbow to keep me from falling should I stumble along the way. I think of that image when I think of this point. A heavenly helping hand that doesn't try to lead me, but rather walks beside me supporting my progress.
