Esoteric Acupuncture is a new and enlightened form of energy medicine. Based on the spiritual aspects of ancient Chinese medicine, it is a healing modality that assists you to reach your own higher realms of evolution. Its aim is to bring you not only into a state of ultimate harmony and balance but to expand your consciousness.

In this article, we cover the history of esoteric acupuncture, how it works, and its benefits to you.

When was esoteric acupuncture discovered?

While acupuncture itself is thousands of years old, esoteric acupuncture was developed by Dr. Mikio Sankey in 1999. And, in 2006, Dr. Sankey was awarded the Acupuncture Author of the Year award by the National Acupuncture and Oriental Medical organization.

How Does Esoteric Acupuncture Work?

Esoteric Acupuncture is an acupuncture practice of clearing and balancing the energy spin points in the body (Chakras) using sacred geometric patterns and a sequence of needle placement.

It focuses on awakening, expanding, and aligning your body’s energy frequencies to propel you to live a life matching the truest potential of your mind, body, and soul.

The modalities used in esoteric acupuncture include guided meditation, aromatherapy, energy healing, intentional prayer, and Reiki alongside acupuncture treatments.

Benefits of Esoteric Acupuncture

You will find great benefits with esoteric acupuncture treatments. Those who are particularly interested in the connection between the mind, body, and spirit will experience a true connection between all three parts of the higher self.
