CHENNAI: Pulse Balancing, an ancient science, is the key to understanding the 4,448 diseases which Siddhas said, exist in our world, according to Dr L Umaa Venkatesh, an acupuncture practitioner since 1986.
“The pulse can reveal everything about your health,” she says. “Pulse Balancing looks at the body in a holistic manner and does not look at treating different organs as separate units as modern medicine does.”
Dr Umaa, who runs a clinic ‘Mytrey’s Pulse Balancing’ at Thyagaraya Nagar, has treated hundreds of patients without prescribing a single medicine. She looks at the functioning of the body’s meridians or energy centres and ensures that there are no blocks as blocks later manifest as diseases. “The benefits of the treatment is that it has no side effects. Also, it is a preventive health care method, that increases immunity and clears energy blocks,” she said at a press conference on Monday. The 12 years of experience in Pulse Balancing helped her refine acupuncture techniques, with the number of needles reduced from three to one making the treatment pain-free. Explaining the philosophy behind the treatment, she pointed out that the human body is composed of five elements or the Panchabhoothas comprising wind, earth, fire, water and wood, which is the material that the universe is also made from. “Our body is the replica of the cosmos. Each of our organs corresponds with one of these elements. The energy passing through them has to be of the right kind and must flow without blocks. When the energy is blocked at any place, this leads to disease.” Subsidiary treatments include minor lifestyle changes like eating a prescribed diet, she added.
