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.
