The Myth of Nü Gua Chinese Snake Goddess

This articles explores the myth of the Chinese Snake Goddess, Nü Gua, who created humans, restored order to the world after the flood, populated the earth, brought the five phases back into harmony, regulated the movement of all celestial bodies, restored the seasons, and created musical instruments. In a separate feature, Carey provides a discussion of KID 15 (Zhong Zhu), a point of balance between yin and yang, very appropriate for the energetics of this moment in time.
The Role of Archetypes & Myths in Medicine

This article takes the symbol of the snake and the myth of the snake goddess and looks at the role of archetypes and myths in both Western and Oriental Medicine. While much of her discussion is based in Jungian psychology, she also draws in the cross-cultural ideas and the creation of the myths to give us a grounded sense of what the Year of the Snake could facilitate for us energetically.

"It was such a pleasure to learn about Acutonics at the TCM Kongress in Rothenburg! I was sceptical at first, but completely sold on the approach by lunchtime on Saturday. And that was before I experienced a treatment! I have been doing nothing but Acutonics since my return home - patients, family, friends, colleagues - no one is safe! What I have observed so far is that 1) it makes people very happy and 2) they find it very relaxing. I look forward to following through to observe the effects on symptoms"
