Neijing Acupuncture


Neijing acupuncture is a style of acupuncture that derives its clinical methodologies from the fundamental text the Huangdi Neijing (Yellow Emperor's Inner Classic of Medicine). This text contains two sections, The Suwen (Simple Questions) and the Lingshu (Spiritual Pivot). Together they form the entire basis of Chinese medical theory and practice. This style of medicine is not only a complete medical system, however, it offers its practitioners (and their patients) a way of life rooted in ancient Chinese culture.

One of the key differences between classical acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (or TCM, a name given to the standardised medicine of the Peoples Republic of China in the 1940's) is that Classical Acupuncture is not used based on point protocols or specific function but on an understanding of the natural movements of fundamental substances through the body landscape according to the laws of "space, time, rhythm  and direction". This means that within this style of acupuncture one discerns the patterns of nature within the body in relation to its environment, and treat accordingly.

Neijing Acupuncture is often termed Neijing Acumoxa. Moxa (or moxabustion) is a huge part of acupuncture styles from all over the globe. This specialist technique includes the heating of a specific area, channel terrain or acupuncture point through the burning of a substance over it. Moxa is an incredibly powerful medical method and is also very safe. For more information, please contact Dr. White below.
