Abstract :

Crown Chakra Opening for Expansion and Connection: The point baihui Du-20 is of particular relevance when it comes to opening the energy field to light. Baihui opens and enlightens consciousness. It also opens the inner spaces of the body to the direct influence of the soul. The session begins with needling baihui. Then a further +4, +8 or +12 needles are inserted concentrically around it to open the crown chakra. The four points surrounding baihui are the sishencong (M-HN-1) points. An additional circle of four needles, baihui +8, will lead to a further opening of the crown chakra. The third circle of four needles, baihui +12, leads to an even more significant opening of the chakra and helps to release deep tensions on top of the skull, as several points are located near the gall bladder channel. The application of needles to all these points leads to an extraordinarily wide opening of the crown chakra. The 12 points, which surround baihui, have been named √ʬ?¬?Treasure Points√ʬ?¬?, and also named √ʬ?¬?The 12 Points of Soul Light√ʬ?¬?. Grounding the Base, Strengthening the Kidney: After opening the crown chakra, the yang pole of the body, we turn to the yin pole, to strengthen the kidney and activate the first and second chakras. Needles are inserted into the points taixi (KI-3), sanyinjiao (SP-6) and taichong (LIV-3). The √ʬ?¬?NADA points√ʬ?¬? of Michael O Smith (auricular heart, kidney, liver, sympathetic and shenmen points) are particularly relevant when activating the kidney and the base. They have a calming and grounding effect on the kidney energy. Heart Chakra Harmonizing the Center: When working with the seven chakras and the different modalities of using qi, the centrality of the heart chakra is emphasized. It is the fourth chakra down from the crown or up from the base. It is also located in the center of the chest, and is the one with exceptional healing energy. It harmonizes and balances, its main qualities being compassion, love and tolerance. The associated acupuncture point is shanzhong (Ren-17). Adding four surrounding points at a distance of 1 cun from shanzhong intensifies its effect, just as with sishencong and baihui. Furthermore, shendao (Du-11) on the back can be chosen as a supplement. These six points help to activate and open the heart chakra. Additionally the patient holds his hands in a circle in front of the chest and uses the breath to focus awareness there. The therapist may support the patient by saying: √ʬ?¬?Allow your heart to open.√ʬ?¬? The combination of acupuncture, awareness of the breath, and qigong hand positions lead to a further opening of the heart, an expansion and strengthening of its energy, so that eventually the patient experiences a widening of the heart space and will feel more joyful and humorous.
