Acupuncture and the chakra energy system have both become increasingly mainstream in the West, but rarely have the two approaches been joined into one practice. Acupuncture and the Chakra Energy System: Treating the Cause of Disease does just that. By comparing the traditional approaches of Chinese medicine and modern Western acupuncture with the chakra energy system of Ayurvedic philosophy, author John Cross offers clinically proven strategies for treating the causes of conditions, not just the symptoms. The book describes the seven major and twenty-one minor chakras in detail and explains how each is related to the body's aura, meridians, Key points, endocrine glands, autonomic nervous system, and varying symptomatology. Focusing on how to use the chakras in the treatment of chronic physical and emotional conditions—osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, low back pain with sciatica, insomnia, hypertension, depression, menopausal symptoms, and frozen shoulder, among others—Cross’s clear, in-depth explanations make his techniques easy for anyone to follow. Including appendices on how to use the chakras with copper and zinc needles and biomagnets, as well as which types of patients respond to such treatments, Acupuncture and the Chakra Energy System is a well-rounded guide for acupuncturists and other practitioners as well as interested students.
