Acupuncture Imaging

Perceiving the Energy Pathways of the Body

A practical guide to the bodymind-energetic approach of acupuncture

• Teaches readers to reorient their thinking in order to see, feel, and experience the energetic field of the body and
psyche

• Explores French and Japanese influences on acupuncture and the resulting stylistic variations in the contemporary
practice of this ancient technique

• Includes guidance on treatment planning and implementation for practitioners and their patients

A pioneer in the field of body energetics, Mark Seem explains in Acupuncture Imaging how bodyworkers and their clients can develop a clear understanding of the energetic systems of the bodymind to arrive at a personal approach and treatment style in acupuncture and all other meridian therapies. He shows how to recast and reconceptualize physical, emotional, and psychological problems in terms of disrupted energy flow, enabling readers to see, feel, and experience these disturbances in a way that allows for change. By approaching the meridian systems in visual and sensory terms, a practitioner is able to tell the energetic “story” that he or she is exploring with a patient, thereby guiding and assisting the healing process. Acupuncture Imaging will be of great help to students, teachers, practitioners, and patients of the diverse energetic and meridian therapies, particularly shiatsu and acupressure, as well as psychotherapists and those interested in Eastern concepts of medicine.

A Question of Style

In a course on Ericksonian hypnotherapy, I was struck by the concept of reframing. What was clear to me as I heard these concepts was that I practiced reframing, which I refer to as imaging in the following discussion, every time I treated a client. In each case, the client’s conditions, complaints, and disturbances were reformulated in energetic terms which, when shared with the client, served as powerful new means of perceiving the bodymind imbalances that often led to a bodily felt sense (Gendlin) of the energetic nature of the imbalance. Such a sense was like an energetic sensory awareness... see more
