Protocol: Helping the Lungs During Fires

Protocol: Helping the Lungs During Fires

By Katie Mink, LAc, Senior Faculty, Westcoast Acutonics

How are the fires out your way? So much trauma, new and revisited, as we now struggle to breathe the air with hundreds and hundreds of fires burning at once:

Ground yourself with Ohm Unison (listening and on Kidney 1).
If you have 2 Low Ohms, listen and ground with those as well.
Use the Spread between Lung 1 and LIV 14
Clear congestion and burning sensation with Zodiac /Ohm: Zodiac on Lung 1 and Ohm on Liver 14
Next layer is New Moon/Ohm, which cools and moistens the lungs and creates a sense of expansion in the chest.
You can also spread from Lung 1 to Lung 7 or LI 4 with Zodiac and Ohm, follow with New Moon/Ohm.

If you are feeling dryness and phlegm, add a layer of Full Moon /Ohm as well.

If you have Mercury, add that for its affinity with the Lung and help with clearing toxins. Use on same points above and if the air is truly hideous, with all kinds of particulates, put on your masks (the kind that filter out particles!) and add Liver 3 and LI 4.



Calm yourself with New Moon/Ohm on Third eye, on your Crown chakra (Du 20), at your heart and then your 2nd chakra.

Ground with Ohm, for you, for your neighbors, for all those who have been torn from their homes.

"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"
