Can inserting thin, fine, sterile needles into the skin help with appetite, transform emotions and mental constructs, provide tranquility and aid in the transition -the final frontier- of letting go?

Acupuncture can help an individual - who has a will to live but has little or no appetite - strengthen their center, their gut, their digestive system, so that they can begin to nourish themselves again.

Acupuncture can help an individual delve into the realm of emotions and thoughts that have negatively impacted their health and well being. There is a system in Traditional Chinese Medicine - five element theory - that serves as a catalyst for individuals to transform emotions and thoughts that may have contributed to their dis-ease. Using acupuncture, individuals can develop a sense of ease - a sense of peace and comfort- as they learn to participate in the last phase of decision making, action and breath.

Is there one acupuncture treatment protocol for end of life care?

Absolutely not! As there are a myriad of paths, personalities and philosophies in living, there are a myriad of paths, personalities and philosophies in dying.

Depending on what the individual's goals and beliefs may be be in the immediate time period approaching death - and at death - there are accompanying and supportive acupuncture treatment protocols to aid an individual realize and nourish their destiny.
