When an alternative medicine or therapy is used alone or instead of conventional medicine, it is called "alternative". It is outside the realm of conventional modern medicine.
When treatment or therapy is done alongside or in addition to conventional medicine, it is referred to as "Complementary Medicine" as the two practices complement each other.
Conventional allopathic medicine is particularly successful for acute conditions and surgical repair or removal where a particular body part or organ receives specific attention.
The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues.
An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others. The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture point.The acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, to reestablish balance between yin and yang energy. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body's internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians.
Bioenergy therapy is the application of natural energy processes and laws for awakening your own immune defences, which due to a disharmonious way of life become weakened or stop functioning entirely.At acupointherapy, we practice bioenergy for revitalizing the body, mind and spirit.
Mantras are impulses or rhythms of the consciousness. They create vibrations in the spirit. Their effects, influence, method and mode of working are all a mystery. In Sanskrit and Tibetan, it is said:
Manana trayate iti mantra. Mantra is that which saves you from repetitiveness. A repetitive thought is a worry. Mantras help to free you from your worries. Can something beyond our understanding help us? The meaning of every mantra is infinity. It is a sound vibration beyond the cognition of the mind. When the mind is unable to cognize, it simply dissolves and moves into a meditative space.
