Chakra Acupuncture

What is chakra acupuncture?  Is it woo woo or hippy dippy stuff? It is acupuncture to balance and clear the chakras in the body by identifying blockages and imbalances, working on the organs, emotions, hormones and spirit

I suppose to begin with you need to know what a chakra is, then we can discuss the acupuncture. In Sanskrit, the word “chakra” means “disk” or “wheel” and refers to the energy centres in your body. These wheels or disks of spinning energy each correspond to certain nerve bundles and major organs. The chakra system refers to the energy centres we have in our bodies. There are seven major chakras, each in a specific location along your spine starting at the base or root of the spine and moving up to the crown of your head.  There are also many more energy centres or chakras in the body, some people believe up to 114. But from an acupuncture point of view all acupuncture points could be seen as chakras as they too are centres of energy in the body.

So let’s get to it, everything, and I mean everything, is made up of energy. This article explains it really well including a bit about quantum physics but don’t let that put you off, have a read to see where I am coming from.

If we accept that we are merely made up of energy then we can accept that energy flows throughout our body.  As we live our hectic day to day lives with all of the stresses and influences that brings then it can make sense that we can get blockages, stagnation and imbalances in these flows of energy? Where blockages etc. begin to happen then we can get ailments such as illness and pain.  We need to be able to do something about this in our daily lives. “Movement is king” if you keep moving then disease and ultimately death find it difficult to catch up with you.  This from an energy point of view means that if you keep moving then energy won’t get blocked and unbalanced.

Let’s get back to chakras and acupuncture. If chakras are merely centres of energy, then it makes sense that they can get blocked or out of balance. The aim of using acupuncture to treat the chakras is to harmonise the flow of Qi or energy by getting rid of any blockages and imbalances within. An added bonus of chakra acupuncture is that is also works on an organ level and hormonal level by treating the endocrine system at the same time as the associated organs. On a third level it also works on the emotions and often we can get an emotional release at the time of treatment or in the next day or two. There is of course a spiritual connection to the chakras for those who believe in this therefore you can see that chakra acupuncture can help us with many levels of self healing.

The use of chakra acupuncture during treatments may not even be obvious to you. I will incorporate points into your treatment plan if I think you need this and if you are open to knowing more about it I will talk you through what I am doing and why.  You can choose to have a chakra balancing treatment as a standalone session the choice is always yours.  But by incorporating these points into a treatment you will get a very strong result where the acupuncture is facilitating you to heal and balance your own body.

It has taken me a while to decide to write this post during Covid-19 lockdown because I fear that if we give too much emphasis on something like this then it becomes very real in our lives.  I began by faithfully waiting each day for the bulletin from Boris to hear what developments were coming next.  I found myself almost devouring everything that was said on the news channel and what a depressing story it was making! I listened to Boris Johnson’s speech after he was out of hospital and hoped that now he would do something more to support our NHS because he had a taste of the selfless care they give to each and every one of us at critical times in our lives. I sat almost in a trance listening to all of this bad news day after day until I realised that there had to be more to Covid-19 lockdown life than this.

I now try to avoid the Covid news if I can and I don’t wait for the daily bulletins to be told how bad things are.  I started to look for the good news that surrounds Covid like Captain Tom and his amazing fund raising efforts to date standing at almost £27 million, or the 106 year old lady that has beaten Covid, or the way in which communities have come together to support each other and watching the many amazing videos on facebook of people doing live broadcasts to entertain their neighbours.

I have chronic asthma and fibromyalgia and so have been in complete Covid-19 lockdown for six weeks now, for four weeks I didn’t leave the house at all but recently I have been going for walks every day just to get out of the house.  It has been amazing walking around my local area where there is hardly any traffic on what is usually a very busy road.  The streets are deserted with only one or two people in their gardens.  We are going to have beautiful gardens and houses at the end of this because we have had the time to do jobs around the house. I miss my grandchildren terribly and keep in contact via photos and videos from their parents and the odd facetime call. My husband has been furloughed from his job but he has lots of things to keep him occupied in his woodworking workshop. We have not yet had a crossed word thankfully!

The fibro pain has got really bad since lockdown and I think it is because I am stagnant and not doing the things I normally do, hence the walking routine I have started.  I have been self-treating more with acupuncture to try to get the qi moving again to get rid of the pain. I have also started doing sound baths for my clients on facebook live once a fortnight.  This has been really good and people have appreciated it saying that it has helped them to sleep better.  It is wonderful to help people when I cant treat them as I usually would.

A new world developing for the better good? I hope that when you read this maybe in the future that you will remember how it felt to appreciate and feel grateful for some of the things we gained from being in lockdown rather than remembering the things we lost.  I hope that the world makes changes to how we live for the better and that we all make time for ourselves, our family and our community in the future so that the things we have learned during this time continue to have an impact for good. I hope our NHS and care system is supported more by the government and by us, we must not go back to over running these services for minor issues.  Most of all I hope that I too remember what is important in this world, that time is something you must not waste because you cannot get it back.  I am going to enjoy life with my family and make time to do more than just work.

Sound Healing Therapy in Wigan

I have recently become interested in the use of sound healing therapy here in Wigan.  I studied a tuning fork therapy course in which I was taught to balance the auras and chakras in the body. So how can these vibrations help to heal the body?

Our body is made up of energy and this energy resonates at a specific frequency that is unique to us.  When we work or suffer stresses of any kind those frequencies can get out of tune as it were.  We can get blockages in those energy pathways which cause stagnation and can lead to pain or other illnesses.  Just as acupuncture or reiki or reflexology can remove these blockages to get things flowing properly again so too can sound frequencies.

One of the therapies I use with the tuning forks is called dual toning where two different notes or frequencies are played at once, on in one ear and the other in the other ear. What happens is that the two sides of the brain then connect and create a third internal tone called a binaural beat.  It is this binaural beat that synchronises the brain to provide clarity and a greater concentration.  Using this method you can find a frequency that will alleviate pain or lift your spirits.  This is called entrainment where you can synchronise your brainwaves to adjust and then match in order to heal the body.

Years ago doctors used to use tuning forks to detect broken bones or to detect hearing loss.  Now the forks can be applied to the body at various points in order to release tension and blocked energy in the organs and meridians.  A bit like acupuncture where the needles release blockages a tuning fork can be applied in much the same way, great for people who don’t like needles!

Why not book in and experience sound therapy healing here in Wigan?  People find they are transported off into a deep state of relaxation and often deep sleep, waking to find that they feel completely refreshed and more balanced.
