“…I’ve only had one session and I feel like Ada really knows what she’s doing. I came out of her practice feeling like bricks had been lifted off my shoulders….”
“…Thank you Ada for a great treatment. I was in a great deal of discomfort and pain. You listened and treated the necessary areas….”
What is Classical Acupuncture? The oldest Chinese Medicine textbook, the Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine, dates as far back as the 3rd century BCE. Just as Prometheus gave humanity fire and told us how to use it, the Yellow Emperor bestowed the channels of acupuncture for use on humanity. Acupuncture back then was used to treat everything. Though in the Song Dynasty (13th century), the Imperial Academy initiated a shift where herbalism was deemed superior. It is at this point that we see the migration of acupuncture into Singapore, Japan, and Vietnam. Acupuncture continued to be used, but only the channels that pertained to the autonomic nervous system remained. The channels that access the entirety of the body-mind-spirit were no longer practiced. Acupuncture experienced a significant revival in the 1950s when Mao Zedong had it integrated with Western medicine, calling it Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and became famous in the West when Nixon’s press secretary had an appendectomy performed in Beijing under acupuncture anesthesia in 1972. Today modern Acupuncture is described as reducing inflammation, releasing neuropeptides, and changing the polarization of specific nerve pathways. Classical Acupuncture lives on, though, and would say that even if we have a cold or serious illness, we are all human, we are innately perfect, and we need to uncover that, since the body is incapable of making the wrong choice. It cares about the expansive, unlimited flowering of your destiny and making your mark in the world.
