Acupuncture, Taoism, Yin/Yang & the New Age Exposed
Most people do not know that I am also board certified acupuncturist, but after researching this field further I felt heavily convicted to stop this practice years ago.–Dr. Johnson
Acupuncture is a Chinese system of new age healing using needles inserted in different points on the body, traditionally believed to balance the yin and yang energies in the body by opening blocked energy channels called meridians. Once the chakras (key points or intersections) are open, the chi, or energy, supposedly can then flow through the body bringing all things into harmony.
The religious component that undergirds acupuncture is primarily Taoism (The Chinese philosophy teaching that there is no personal God—similar to the impersonal God-force of pantheism in Hinduism). The Tao is composed of conflicting opposites (Yin and Yang). Missionaries and Christian researchers who have lived in Asia for many years claim that between 95 and 98 percent of the non-Christian population have occult/psychic powers. These vary considerably in strength, depending on the extent to which the person has been involved with the occult practices of Asiatic religions.
What then have psychic powers to do with acupuncture? It is a fact of experience that acupuncture is much more successful with psychic doctors and psychic patients than with those who are not psychic. Many Chinese doctors have indirectly acknowledged this, for a great many of them will not treat Western patients by acupuncture. There are of course exceptions, for in the Western world also there are psychic people. Psychic/occult sensitivity, is the catalyst for successful results in acupuncture.
