I remember some of the old acupuncture and Chinese Medicine practitioners and books talk about intention during acupuncture treatment sessions.  

How important it was to direct the healing Qi (energy) from the acupuncture needle to the patient's problem or area of pain.

Acupuncture styles like Mr Tung's and the balance method of Dr Tan are best suited for an effective intention as both styles use few needles and in Mr Tung style a set of needles called Dao Ma, usually consisting of 3 consecutive needles is easier to concentrate your intention on.

The intention in Life on a daily basis or long term is most important, as it gives us the focus, drive and the reason to take steps to our destination and stay the course till we reach the final goal.

acupuncture and Chinese Medicine on Union Square, NYCI realized that after many years of my acupuncture practice in NYC, the intention is semi-automatic in many ways, but it is a lot better when whatever we do, we give it extra intension.  

When I was learning to dance The Tango, instructors often talked about the intention and so was the same in Yoga, Martial Arts, and Kettlebells training.

When I went for my acupuncture training, and it was mostly about absorbing the Asian Medicine material and acupuncture needling methods and point selection for best results and nobody talked about the intention on desired results. 

Recently I was doing acupuncture needling on a young female dancer with multiple pains and injuries, for some reason, I tried to mentally send the healing energy through my acupuncture needles to her injured areas of back pain, inner hip and clavicle regions.

After the patient got up from my treatment table she reported feeling much less pain in all of her complaint areas. After that experience and thinking that everything is energy including the thought process I decided to use more of a conscious intention in my acupuncture treatments and whatever I do in Life.

Use intention to get where you want to go faster !

In conclusion, I want to mention that many athletes, actors and metaphysical books and scholars of acupuncture, Chinese Medicine and Yoga as well as great philosophers and Physics always talk about the power of thoughts to materialize and energy and its properties as well as the mind being a source of targeted energy.

"Be careful what you wish for", cause it may just happen, and it does.  Swami Satchidananda said: "As you think, so you become". 

So the lesson in Life is INTENTION is important and so are the reasons behind it. Wish for things that are good for you and others.

Be well,
