In yoga there is a chapter on Tri-bandha. Human body has three regions - upper, middle and lower parts of physical body.
Tri-bandha are known as three pranic centres - a residential home of Prana. Prana means life energy - enters the human body when a person is born and exits with the death of a person.
Upper region is chest and above - here Prana resides in throat. It is called as Jalandhara bandha.
Middle region is stomach - Prana resides in navel. It is uddiyana bandha
Lower region is below navel - Prana resides in anus. It is moola bandha.
Acupuncture in Tri-bandha:
Acupuncture has a chapter on Tri-bandha. It describes vividly, clearly and elaborately on each point for needling.
All the three each regions of the human body have six points - it means:
Upper: three points in front side of upper body and three points in back side.
Middle: three points front side and three points back.
Lower : here also three points front and three points back.
Front side is ida. Back is pingala.
If the problem is only in the upper front, an acupuncturist needles only three points of the upper region.
If the problem is only in the lower back, only three points concerned is needled.
If the problem is only in the whole front side, five points are needled. It means these five points covers all the three front regions of the body.
If the problem is only in the whole back, seven points are needled.
Acupuncture treatment is simple, easy, safe, fast-curing and drug-free. Acupuncture methods are based on pancha mahabhootha and ida-pingala of Hindu system.
