“As Above, So Below” isn’t just a lovely saying—there really is direct relationship between the human body and the natural world.
In the realm of acupuncture, perhaps nobody knows this as experientially as this week’s guest, David Ford. Having spent more than forty years teaching acupuncture in wilderness settings, David has developed a deep understanding of how the properties of individual acupuncture points mirror actual phenomena in nature.
David’s explorations in nature have benefitted from and in turn validated Heiner’s scholarly research findings on the classical meaning of the acupuncture point names. While many acupuncturists think of the point names as indicators of their exact location in the physical body, Heiner has uncovered a much deeper symbolic level of meaning. A whole new dimension to acupuncture is explored as David brings his wilderness- practitioner’s experience and Heiner brings his classical scholarship to today’s discussion.
Discovering the relationship between acupuncture points and natural phenomena
In Part I, 5-element acupuncturist David Ford and Heiner combined their experiential and scholarly knowledge to explore and explain the relationship between acupuncture points and channels in the body and corresponding phenomena in nature. In this installment, David reveals the practical application of this knowledge using real patient cases.
