Lung 1 - Middle Palace- A Sacred Reminder of Inspiration, Awe, & Majesty

Hi everyone!

When I have a patient who is feeling disconnected, uninspired, or cut off, this is a fantastic place in the body that, when stimulated, often brings an almost immediate restoration of deep connection. I love this point! and find it particularly useful this time of year as Autumn reveals or sometimes forces opportunities to let go and grieve.

We will stimulate this point by tapping with our fingers. Continue to tap, until you feel a deep breath come and go.

Lung 3 - Heavenly Palace- the uplifting gift of self worth

Hi everyone! Today i want to share an amazing point, that I recently used in an acupuncture treatment focused primarily on Spiritual level healing! The patient was feeling a sense of low self-worth, depression and disconnection from purpose. After the treatment the patient reported feeling more like themselves, a reconnection with their mission.

When you stimulate this point on yourself there is often an instinct to take a deep breath.. Allow this healing, calming breath to circulate through your body.

Lung 9 - Very Great Abyss - Reviving Spiritual Connection

Here in Philadelphia, Fall feels like it finally arrived after much hot and humid weather. Though it took its time this year,  when it is ready Autumn ‘falls’ quickly and swiftly like an ax. The humidity has been intense and today I breathed the crisp, cool, air with relief, reviving my connection.

The energetics of today reminds me of the point:

Very Great Abyss (Lung 9) The Source Point of the Lung Channel

The point is useful in the following:

Physical Level

  • Resolves phlegm

  • Stops coughing

  • strengthens the Lungs

Emotional/Mental

  • lifts us up in times of great despair

  • eases the weight  of depression associated with grief

  • helps to move grief

  • helps the feeling of “falling into the abyss/hell” where their is no stability

Spirit Level

  • revives the spirit when there is instability in self

  • reconnects us to a deeper source of love and security

  • accesses the deepest levels of spirit through the breath

  • helps to unite emotions. body, and spirit

You can stimulate this point by gently massaging the point directly on the thumb side of the wrist crease (see the little circle in the pic)

Feel Amazing!

Love, Lance
