Esoteric Chakra-Puncture: A Practitioner’s Perspective

I am writing in response to false claims recently made in the media about the safety of Esoteric Chakra-puncture.

I will qualify my response by including my professional background. I have studied a 4 year Bachelor of Health Science specialising in Acupuncture, a Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine (through the University of Western Sydney), lectured in musculo-skeletal anatomy within an acupuncture degree program as well as writing subjects for the Bachelor of Health Science (acupuncture). I have also worked in several hospitals in China, my first internship was for 6 weeks specialising in acupuncture and then again 4 years later specialising in herbal medicine and gynaecology. I have been in practice for 10 years this November, during which time I have owned a successful clinic where I have employed up to 8 staff including admin, massage therapists, acupuncturists and nutrition medicine practitioners. I would consider myself well respected as a health care practitioner, working with and receiving referrals from GP’s, physios, gynaecologists, IVF specialists and the occasional endocrinologist. I have been practising Esoteric Chakra-puncture for 3.5 years and was part of a small group of qualified acupuncturists who worked with Serge Benhayon in the development of Esoteric Chakra-puncture.  I am therefore well equipped to discuss the safety of Esoteric Chakra-puncture.

Esoteric Chakra-puncture, like all other modalities taught through Universal Medicine is based on love and integrity. The utmost care is taken to ensure that practitioners adhere to safe practice with consideration to local and state health and safety regulations. I have also presented during Esoteric Chakra-puncture courses on the skin penetration laws. To even suggest that this form of therapy is unsafe shows absolutely no integrity in reporting.

Through my training and experience I can unequivocally say that Esoteric Chakra-puncture is in fact MORE safe then Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (the most common acupuncture practised in Australia). In Esoteric Chakra-puncture the insertion of needles is extremely gentle and superficial much like traditional Japanese acupuncture and it is unusual to cause any bleeding or injury to the skin. I am not saying that traditional Chinese acupuncture causes physical injury, just simply that Esoteric Chakra-puncture is a far more gentler technique and ABSOLUTELY safe.

As a practitioner of Esoteric Chakra-puncture I can also say that the Code of Ethics that each practitioner commits to as part of their accreditation holds the highest level of care and integrity that I have ever seen.

  1. It’s disturbing to read about the lies reported in the media on Esoteric Chakra Puncture. It’s incredibly irresponsible to not represent the truth accurately especially as it may deter people from accessing a very safe and effective modality. Thank you Rebecca for all you have shared here. It seems to me that reporting the truth in the media would have been simple, after all there are many like yourself willing to share the facts about Esoteric Chakra Puncture, and the journalists themselves are trained to investigate topics thoroughly. So, I can only assume there has been a lack of ethics and integrity on the part of the journalists and an intent for a sensationalist story.

  2. The needles used in acupuncture seem like primitive instruments compared to the needles used in Chakra- Puncture because they are so thick and imposing.

  3. I love that you can back up what I know to be true simply from being on the receiving end of the two modalities. They feel so different to have, they just don’t compare, and so for the media to try to denigrate Esoteric Chakra-punture needed someone who had actually experienced them both and trained in them both to talk about them and set the record straight.

  4. I don’t practice chakra-puncture myself but what I can say, from my experience of many sessions and courses with practitioners is that the Universal Medicine code of ethics and the approach of those who practice this modality, is far higher than any other I have experienced.

  5. Esoteric Chakra-Puncture is a deeply powerful and profound modality. Yes it is great at putting a stop to the raciness I may be in but it does so much more than that especially the less racy I go into a session! I find that it works with me and supports me long after the session to continue to deepen within.

  6. The authority you bring to this blog is unquestionable. There is no doubt Chakra-puncture is a wonderful complementary to medicine modality.

  7. I have been on the receiving end of both Acupuncture and Chakra puncture. I can recall the pain I experienced during Acupuncture, especially when the needle was being turned and twisted to enable the flow of energy but felt more like the flow of pain.
    I decided to study Chakra puncture and can honestly say it is a gentle, loving, healing modality like no other and far as I’m concerned, it is safe.
    The needle is as thin as a strand of hair and it uses a plastic sheath so it can be superficially inserted into the skin, which says a lot for me as it is super gentle and non-invasive. I have never looked back since.
    At the same time I personally cannot or nothing inside of me condone the other modalities that utilises needles. I feel it is a personal choice and free will of the individual to choose what is personally best and serving for them – it is that simple.

  8. The Esoteric Code of Practice is extremely in depth, and many organisations would learn much from reading this and understanding the practitioner’s responsibility to the client as a whole.

  9. I agree with everything you write here, and having studied Chakra-puncture with Universal Medicine can unequivocally say, not only is it safe, it also is immensely supportive of people.

  10. Not only is Esoteric Chakra-puncture extremely safe, it is immensely effective and practiced with a very deep integrity. As a major part of my health care regime it continues to empower me to make substantial changes in the quality of my lifestyle choices that have now become a strong foundation of care-full living and subsequently delivered a robust health previously never experienced. A highly professional practice with the highest Code of Ethics in the world.

  11. The press has at its core, the exposé of what could be problematic for us all. Yet, what is not a problem, cannot turn into something problematic without a serious stretch that distorts the facts and massages the non-problem into a problem. The press does not only expose problems. It relies upon its credibility to create them as well. The press, therefore, has its way of abusing.

  12. The Code of Practice as published by the Esoteric Practitioners Association is one that encompasses our whole lifestyle, not just how we are as practitioners in the treatment room when we are with clients. It reminds us that how we live every day directly affects our clients and the level of healing we can offer.

  13. Esoteric Charka-puncture, whether I am giving it or receiving it is always a joy because not only do I see and feel what happens to a client when they receive it I also know what occurs for me. Chakra-puncture allows a greater surrender in the body, which is very beautiful.

  14. I am breathing and living evidence of the power of Esoteric Chakra-Puncture. This modality transformed by life, you could say in fact resurrected me to live with are far far greater connection to who I am and developing a deeply loving relationship with my Soul. From this point I began to live guided by this connection slowly but surely, as such here I am today living a true and full life that reflects the joy of being responsible for the way I live and committed bring love and truth to my work, relationships and my every day. This is a way of living that I now would never ever exchange of anything in this world, instead I am inspired daily to deepen my relationship with all I can feel is on offer.

  15. Esoteric Chakra-puncture is not only extremely safe on a purely physical level but also as you share there is in depth training and commitment on the part of the practitioner with regards to the energetic quality that they bring to each session.

  16. I can attest to what you are saying Rebecca. Years ago I received Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and had ‘moxha’ treatments on my body as part of the Acupuncture session from, at the time, an Internationally known Chinese Acupuncturist and Herbalist. And for some years now I regularly receive Esoteric Chakra-puncture. The first thing I noticed on my very first session was that the needles are very fine as this was demonstrated to me before they were inserted. My health has improved so much and my preference is the Esoteric modality which is why I make sure I have regular session with my practitioner as I am very aware that as I get older I need to take more care of my self.

  17. Thanks for sharing Rebecca. It doesn’t take much scratching to get to the facts around chakra-punture. Where were the media looking for their information and were they even interested in the facts?

  18. And Thank you Rebecca for your sharing – in terms of also sharing your background and your authority with what you have experienced and lived. Amazing to read, and beautiful to see how this is now coming in to support with Chakra Puncture and all it has on offer.

  19. Awesome sharing Rebecca – and I have to agree as a practitioner of Chakra Puncture myself, that this is a very safe modality and so beautiful in its support that it offers clients. And in addition, in order to practice Chakra Puncture, one has the option of joining the EPA which holds some of the highest standards of Code of Ethics that you can find.

  20. I agree that Esoteric Chakra Puncture is a completely safe modality. I have had around one chakra puncture session a month for the past 10 years and I have suffered no ill effects whatsoever. I could say what an amazingly powerful technique it is too but in reality that is only words. You have to experience it to start to grasp its power and benefits.

  21. Practicing Esoteric Chakra-puncture, I have found the codes by which we practice, makes this a very safe technique. Every care is taken in training to ensure hygiene, comfort and safety of the client. I have also found it to be an incredibly powerful healing modality that supports all sorts of people to feel restored back to a truer feeling in their body.

  22. I completely 100% agree Rebecca, Esoteric Chakra-puncture is an amazingly safe and gentle modality but with profoundly deep support to return the client back to their original gorgeous selves. The difference getting on the couch ( before the treatment ) and off the couch ( after the treatment ) is phenomenal.

    1. That’s been my experience also Gill, how I feel at the end of a session is so profoundly different to how I arrive, I feel so supported on every level and I take this new awareness, vitality, and connection to me back into life. Each session builds upon the last and I have found it’s a progression into deeper levels of health, vitality, wellness, inner calm and stillness, understanding, and love. Every part of my life benefits from the sessions.

  23. Esoteric chakra-puncture is a staple in my life – an amazing therapy that supports me in my everyday, that bows away any cobwebs, and brings me back to my essence… the true unencumbered me.

  24. I receive Chakra-puncture treatments and can say that I’ve been always treated in the most exquisite, respectful and loving way. No danger felt in any moment, but the lightness and deep connection with myself, everytime.

  25. You sound qualified enough to me to know what is safe and what is unsafe and from being a receiver of Esoteric Chakra-puncture myself many many times I too would say it is ABSOLUTELY safe and a very supportive treatment and modality for the body and being.

  26. When someone writes something in the media we assume it is a true and factual account but I am starting to wonder if some of what we get presented in the media is from a slant or bias from the opinion of the writer themselves.

  27. It’s just lovely to read the truth about chakra puncture,and its so beautiful reading the following ” Esoteric Chakra-puncture, like all other modalities taught through Universal Medicine is based on love and integrity.”
    Having received treatments by the modalities of universal medicine I can verify that they are based on love , integrity and healing.

  28. Beautiful to read of your long experience with Esoteric Chakrapuncture. Being a comparatively recent practitioner and as a former homeopath, I would vouch that Esoteric healing modalities are practiced with an ethical basis that I have never before witnessed in any other healing modality. Not only are we trained in the knowledge and technical ability but every year we are energetically assessed. This is surely a first. How I live affects not only myself but everyone around me, including of course my clients.

  29. You or someone like you with many years experience in acupuncture and esoteric chakra-puncture should have been the first person interviewed or listened to if anyone had questions about esoteric chakra-puncture. It reveals the intention when the practitioners using a modality are not consulted when claims are made.

  30. Esoteric Chakrapuncture is one of those modalities that can stop us in our tracks as it allows us to feel the essence of who we are. Once our essence is connected it is then a matter of learning how to express it in the world.

    1. It sure does stop you in your tracks. You are left with the clarity of your own essence. What you have imposed or allowed on top of that is very much felt and given the opportunity to let go of.

  31. It is very hard to believe anyone would genuinely say Esoteric Chakrapuncture is unsafe if they have actually experienced or even just seen for themselves how it is done. I am very much inclined to say they have to be on some kind of agenda.

  32. As a receiver of Esoteric Chakra-puncture I can say that it feels very different from Acupuncture and also has expanded my understanding of chakras in the body. Recently i had a treatment after several months and I found that it gave me such a boost, I hadn’t realised how far from my potential I had come, a beautiful way to be supported back on track.

  33. Chakra-puncture is nothing like acupuncture, the only similarity is both techniques use needles. Chakra-puncture needles are like very fine fishing wire, and the technique is exceedingly gentle but the effects on the body are extremely profound. All practitioners have a strict code of ethics under the Esoteric Practitioners Association where the integrity and the responsibility of each practitioner is scrutinised and checked annually. It is an honour to be a part of and belong to the EPA.

  34. As a recipient of Esoteric Charka Puncture I can absolutely say it is an incredibly gentle technique and when offered with the level of integrity required by qualified practitioners it is safe beyond any regulations for any other treatments available in any industry/sector.

    1. I’ve never had acupuncture to know what it is like, so I was a little nervous when I went for my first Esoteric Chakra Puncture of what it would be like. I hardly felt the needles going in, I was completely supported by my practitioner at all times and it was an amazing, gentle, stilling experience. I have never felt so still within, in all my life having a session. I’ve since then had many many treatments.

  35. I only had acupuncture once and really disliked it. The needles were awful as they felt very hard and hurt a lot. Chakra-puncture needles on the other hand are so light that you barely feel them go in and the experience of Chakra-puncture itself is simply gorgeous. I always come away super expanded from it.

  36. The Integrity, quality of service and decency of practitioners that I have received Chakra puncture from is inspiring – and inspires me to bring the same level of deep comittment to people in the work I do.

    1. This is my favourite modality in so many ways. You walk out of a sessions with what I describe as a fresh start or a clearer choice on what you would like to choose next. There is no middle ground or confusion but more a clear point to choose and your body feels so settled and rested. I use this modality as a life support and not as an every now and then thing or something to go to when something is wrong. For me now it’s just a part of how I support myself in life.

    2. Me too, and knwoing that the way we are directly has an effect on everyone around us is inspiring. Just like we can feel it from the practitioner we too have the same effect on others when we bring the fullness of ourselves to the world.

  37. I have never received acupuncture but from Observing doctors at a GP surgery I work at who give it – it doesn’t look like a pleasant experience. From my experience of Chakra Puncture I could say that It is a far more gentle and stilling approach which seeks not to ‘fix’ the body or it’s pain but to allow someone to surrender and heal themselves. I have never seen anyone walking away from an acupuncture session looking deeply rested, vibrant and delicate – like I have from those who experience Chakra Puncture.

    1. I agree with you Harry. I have received acupuncture and I have received chakra puncture. What you have described is accurate. With chakra puncture I have always felt a deep connection with my body and a deep sense of re-connection with the truth of me and always felt a healing as result.

  38. Having read the code of ethics myself, I know what a blessing they were to read let alone live or be treated by someone who abides by this code.

  39. Said with true authority Rebecca, thank you. I have had many chakra-puncture sessions over the past few years and my experience is that it is practised by practitioners with very high levels of integrity and a genuinely loving approach.
