Shen Points and Their Clinical Application
¨All proper needling first treats the spirit“ (Su Wen, ch. 25)
The deep art of healing with acupuncture relies on the ability to create transformation on the level of the Shen. From an acupuncture prospective this means that treating on the spirit level and helping patients to transform suffering into growth, is the core of one’s practice. From this perspective unfolding the deep mystery of the Shen’s relationship to the mind is the essence of human growth.
