Needle-Free Acupuncture

How Needle-free Acupuncture Migrated From Japan to Alamo Heights

Needle-free acupuncture is one of many healing methods adopted and refined by renowned TCM practitioner Steven “Doc” Blackstone. Its origins lie in the esoteric practice of Japanese Toyohari Style acupuncture. In their endeavor for perfection the Japanese took over 2,500 years of acupuncture tradition from Chinese teachings and literature and turned it into a powerful, yet gentle art. They accomplished the feat within a span of less than 400 years.

Doc had 20 years of intensive study in the area of martial arts and Chinese Medicine before enrolling at the Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin (AOMA) in the mid 2000s. During his term there he gained interest in Toyohari Style acupuncture. Doc spent countless hours after class absorbing details from the finest instructors.  He combined intuitive techniques with the finely honed methods of the Japanese to create  a new and effective healing system free of the use of traditional acupuncture needles. Doc has honed his skills to a point where he can keenly examine the movement of energy for diagnostic purposes. Additionally, he can expertly guide it throughout the body to augment healing- without need of traditional instruments.

There's the Way Everyone Does It...

The average acupuncturist would have a person lie in an isolated room for 30 to 45 minutes while acupuncture needles placed in certain areas of the body.  It is the practitioner’s expectation that the needles alone guide the movement of energy without any additional influence. Multiple patients at a time are handled in this fashion.  The situation is somewhat like leaving a pot on the stove unattended. When the patient is “fully cooked” the needles are withdrawn. Few practitioners do  examinations afterwards to compare results to assess the effectiveness of the treatment.

Then There's the Way Doc Performs Acupuncture

The optimal application of needle-free acupuncture methods requires more time in direct contact with the patient than Chinese acupuncture methods. Doc Blackstone focuses on the treatment of one person at a time. He tailors each and every therapy session to best suit the needs of the individual. As the body rersonates to a renewed level of wellness each therapy session is modified. No two treatments are quite alike!

Expertise in Traditional Chinese Medicine and extensive knowledge of other healing modalities led to the evolution of a cohesive new practice- Sacred Healing Tree. The healing model includes techniques and theories that extend beyond ancient Chinese and Japanese healing traditions. Sacred Healing Tree therapy embraces knowledge of medical concepts and technology that was not available to practitioners in ancient times. The cornerstone ideals and strategies have been meticulously revised over the course of the last 30+ years. Only the most powerful and effective healing methods throughout history remain intact.
