Classical Acupuncture


History of Acupuncture

Acupuncture originated in China about 5000

years ago and is one of the oldest, most

commonly used systems of healing in the world.

It is still the primary medical system for 1/4 of the world’s


The beauty of Chinese medicine is that, over time, there have been

many diverse theories on how to treat different diseases, whether

there are changes in climatic conditions, or according to different

geographic locations or, according to current epidemic situations. In

all these cases, there are books written regarding treatment and all

these theories contribute to the wealth of the medicine. This is why

the medical culture is so rich with information, especially next to the

model of Western medicine which is just 200 years old.

There has been a rapid growth in the awareness and use of Chinese

Medicine in Western countries since President Nixon’s visit to China

in 1971. Many colleges offer Master’s degrees in Traditional Asian

Medicine and the acupuncture profession is licensed in most states.

In 1993, the Food and Drug Administration estimated that

Americans made up to 12 million visits  to acupuncture practitioners

each year and spent more than half a billion dollars on acupuncture

treatments per year.

There are many reasons for this rapid rise in popularity. Patients

who have tried acupuncture are usually amazed and pleased with

the outcome and tell their friends. Also recent clinical research

supports the efficacy of acupuncture for a variety of conditions.

In the late 1970s, the World Health Organization recognized that

acupuncture and Oriental medicine can be used to treat nearly four

dozen common ailments, including neuromusculoskeletal conditions

(such as arthritis, neuralgia, insomnia, dizziness, and neck/shoulder

pain); gastrointestinal conditions (such as food allergies, ulcers,

chronic diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, intestinal weakness,

anorexia and gastritis), emotional and psychological disorders (such

as depression and anxiety); circulatory disorders (such as

hypertension, angina pectoris, arteriosclerosis and anemia);

addictions to alcohol, nicotine and other drugs; and respiratory

disorders (such as emphysema, sinusitis, allergies and bronchitis).

In 1997, a consensus statement released by the National Institutes of

Health found that acupuncture could be useful by itself or in

combination with other therapies to treat addiction, headaches,

menstrual cramps, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain,

osteoarthritis, lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and asthma.

Classical Acupuncture

Classical Acupuncture differs from the commonly practiced TCM.

Classical acupuncture is derived from the classic texts, which

Chinese medicine evolves from. It is the medicine, which was

practiced all over China, in tribes and in families, for centuries,

before the Cultural Revolution, when Chairman Mao developed

TCM as a simplified synthesis of these varied methods.

The world's foremost transmitter of Classical Chinese Medicine, is the

renowned Mr Jeffrey Yuen, Taoist doctor and priest; 88th generation

of his Taoist lineage: Yu Ching Huang Lao Pai, (Jade Purity School,

Yellow Emperor/Lao Tzu sect), and the 26th generation of Chuan

Chen Lung Men Pai (Complete Reality School, Dragon Gate Sect).

Classical acupuncture is an inclusive medicine, offering thousands of

years of information and experience in the treatment of disease. This

allows for a more thorough assessment of diagnosis and treatment of

disease imbalance. In addition, Classical acupuncture practitioners

use more than 60 energy pathways when assessing and treating a

disease imbalance. This increases the benefits of treatments and

provides broader and deeper shifts in the disease imbalance.

Classical acupuncture is very effective for any type of chronic issues,

ranging from imbalances evolving since childhood, emotional

imbalances, to acute pain conditions. TCM practitioners focus on 12

pathways, presenting a limited approach.

In addition to this difference, Classical Acupuncture takes into

consideration all the works written and orally transpired throughout

the history of Chinese Medicine. Throughout thousands of years,

there have been many schools of thought, many Masters. These

varying philosophies reflect the depth of information and wisdom,

knowledge passed down and changing through various times and

history in the Chinese Culture. All of these schools of thought have

their value in treating patients today. In a world where disease is

complicated by a myriad of influences, environmental and lifestyle,

the more solutions we have for a problem, the more accessible a

solution and sustaining a solution will be.

Classical Chinese Medicine doesn’t through the baby out with the

bathwater. It respects and utilizes all the information passed down

thru the ages as equipment, a veritable world of possibilities for the

treatment and understanding of disease progression. The depth and

value of this tradition is essential for the treatment of illness today.

It brings a wide range of possibilities to the treatment of such

conditions as cancer and AIDS and enhances our understanding of

the evolution of disease from the internalization of External

Pathogenic Factors, such as a cold and how it can be suppressed in

our system to become more serious conditions such as fibromyalgia,

chronic fatigue, arthritis etc.

Classical Acupuncture works with building health, not just

alleviating signs and symptoms. It is a precise system of

understanding the evolution and treatment of illness, based on

extensive and comprehensive theory and a unique consideration of

lifestyle and awareness as the fountains of longevity.

It is throught the cultivation and practice of the Master, Jeffrey Yuen,that Classical Acupuncture is shared and experienced in the worldtoday.
