what is advanced acupuncture?

Advanced acupuncture is acupuncture in its original form. It is an ancient, sophisticated and comprehensive medicine. Most people are aware of standard acupuncture being used to treat pain and provide relaxation. With advanced acupuncture we can treat severe conditions and also use it to treat emotional pain and for spiritual purposes.

An advanced acupuncture practitioner can use all 68 of the body’s channels, where standard acupuncture tends to make use of just 14. With command of these channels we are even able to work with chronic degenerative diseases if patients are able to make the necessary changes to diet and lifestyle.

The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, Huang Di Nei Jing was written in the 2nd century BCE. This book contained the complete practice of acupuncture and included all 68 channels.

However, in the 11th and 12th Centuries CE, Chinese Medicine became standardised by the Imperial authorities. 46 out of the 68 channels were omitted from the official approved practice of acupuncture. These included the very channels needed to treat difficult illnesses.

Can we just look to the original classic, the Nei Jing, to show us exactly how to use all 68 channels? No. Much of the language of classical Chinese medicine was written in a codified form.

Fortunately, there is also a rich tradition of commentary within Chinese medicine. With an authentic line of transmission, where knowledge has been passed from teacher to student through successive generations, we can access the key nuances necessary to put this ancient wisdom into practice.

Modern day Daoist Master, Dr Jeffrey Yuen, is an 88th generation lineage holder. He has dedicated his life to selflessly teaching this medicine so that this wonderful medicine can be used for the benefit of humankind.

Michelle Aris feels very privileged and deeply grateful to have access to this teaching through lectures presented by Master Yuen himself and also through the teaching of his senior student Ann Cecil-Sterman. Michelle continues the tradition of apprenticeship within Chinese medicine by apprenticing to her mentor within the lineage, Dr Hung Tran.

    Michelle has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in her field. Despite being nervous and skeptical at first I’ve already booked two follow up appointments as a result of the pain free and relaxed outcome of today’s first session. Michelle … More was professional and made me feel at ease. Her clinic is in full compliance with Covid procedures too. I wish I had come here before going to physio and osteopath.
    Due to my nature and demanding work practice I ignored mild neck and back ache for over a year. However, following working three months at a desk as a result of the first lockdown and a build up of stress, I had a great deal of tension build up in trapezius muscle (upper back and neck) which gave me chronic neck and headaches. After seeing a private neurologist and doing MRI scans, taking occipital nerve block and sessions with a physiotherapist and osteopath. The most effective treatment I received over the past six months was in acupuncture with Michelle who immediately knew which kind of acupuncture was right for me.
    I am much in debt to Michelle and her wisdom in acupuncture; I am lucky and grateful to have been treated at her clinic.
    You will not regret this treatment.

    I needed a few sessions to sort my knee injuries that had been going on for approximately 10 years, from the very session though I could feel it was different and something else that impressed me is they assess your issue before the treatment. … More Awesome!!! Worth every pound!!!

    Michelle is a very knowledgeable and competent professional. As I have never tried acupuncture before, she was very patient to talk me through the whole treatment and answer all my questions.

    Over the past 5 years, I have been coming to Michelle to have acupuncture treatments for a variety of ailments (hip/back problems and shoulder/arm pain among others.) In every case I was extremely pleased with the results as I am back to my normal life in a day.
