Marina Doktorman with Dr. Sankey

Esoteric acupuncture is a relatively modern form of acupuncture which combines traditional acupuncture techniques with Eastern and Western esoteric philosophies, such as chakras, meridians and aura. Esoteric acupuncture is based on a theory that the body is not just a physical entity, but also has energetic, emotional and spiritual aspects that need to be addressed in order to achieve whole body healing. It was developed by Dr. Mikio Sankey, who has been teaching esoteric acupuncture for over 20 years. Marina Doktorman, L.Ac. has completed foundational and advanced IV levels of Esoteric Acupuncture, studying personally with Dr. Sankey in Boulder, Colorado from 2014 and returned to meet with Dr. Sankey again in 2019.

What is Esoteric Acupuncture?

Esoteric Acupuncture is a holistic healing method that uses acupuncture needles to balance and stimulate the energy systems of the body, including the chakras and meridians. During the treatment, the practitioner will assess emotional energy centers and determine if there are any blockages. Depending on the blockages, a certain acupuncture pattern will be used. Esoteric Acupuncture, much like cosmetic acupuncture Clifton, uses a specific sequence of acupuncture points, but in this case, it’s to harmonize the vibrational acupuncture pathways and move into a higher level of consciousness. Esoteric acupuncture is designed to treat wellness and not physical imbalances by harmonizing and balancing the center of the body in the areas known as chakras (especially the heart chakra) and raise the level of one’s consciousness. Focusing on wellness will automatically start the process of prevention of disease.

Principles underlying Esoteric Acupuncture

There are several basic principles underlying Esoteric Acupuncture:
Esoteric Acupuncture in NJ
The first basic principle is to pierce your temple (your physical vehicle) with acupuncture needles at specific acupuncture sites using very specific sequencing order with any number of New Encoding Patterns to unlock the gateways to the finer frequency levels of consciousness that are stored in the planes above the dense mental planes of consciousness.

A second basic principle is to balance and strengthen the opposing energy fields of the heart and love versus the kidneys and fear (Esoteric Shaoyin) for the most optimum usage of those fields for the recipient of an Esoteric Acupuncture treatment.

A third basic principle is to assist the client to be able to assess the Ageless Wisdom teachings in order to find or discover his or her puzzle piece in life. Who are you and what is your purpose in this incarnation? Finding your puzzle piece in life requires you to become very still and enter a certain level of consciousness that allows you to reach your Inner, Higher, Spiritual Heart Center. It is possible to reach this level of consciousness if you have done a certain amount of inner plane work plus receive a treatment with proper New Encoding Pattern.
As a way of life, Esoteric Acupuncture emphasizes that clients make wise choices in nutrition. Everything that goes into your physical body “shapes” all the various fields surrounding you and influences who you are.

Features of Esoteric Acupuncture

Features of Esoteric Acupuncture in Clifton
Traditional Acupuncture School teaches that Qi travels through the acupuncture meridians and channels, those movements are linear. There is another type of connection that is not linear. This nonlinear connection between two or more distant locations is an instantaneous consciousness connection called a morphic resonance connection. With the activation of any of the New Encoding Patterns, a spin point activity is initiated at each acupuncture site that is needled. The collective energy of spin point activities created by the correct activation of any New Encoding Patterns will, in turn, create a Spin Field around the client. Consciousness is contained within all fields.
Features of Esoteric Acupuncture Clifton
A Spin Field has much greater intensity with higher, lighter frequency than the frequencies created by more traditional acupuncture treatments. A Spin Field inherently has various tetrahedral geometrically formed fields that create an overall frequency that allows the individual, who is in alignment with this frequency, an opportunity to quickly accelerate into a higher plane of consciousness. This possibility may occur when two criteria are met while the client is receiving an Esoteric Acupuncture treatment. The recipient of Esoteric Acupuncture treatment must be able to quiet his or her chattering mind and become very Still. The key for moving into the higher consciousness planes requires that both the practitioner and the recipient of the treatment are actively engaging in some level of inner plane work such as: meditation, breathing exercises, Qi Gong or other inner, calming, centering work.
Features of Esoteric Acupuncture New Jersey
New Encoding Patterns and Chakra Balancing Patterns are made up of various interconnecting triangles and intersecting triangles. Triangles are the signature of tetrahedrons and tetrahedral geometry. After needles are inserted on the posterior side with proper sequencing, the client will be instructed to visualize the triangular connections between the points. Triangles with the apex pointing upward represent fire, the heart frequencies and love. Triangles with apex pointing downward represent water, the kidneys and fear. When the two opposing triangles are layered one on top of the other, a two-dimensional six-pointed star is formed. These mental visualization connections are exercises for the abstract mind and allow the client an opportunity to more readily move into their Inner, Higher, Spiritual Heart Center.
Features of Esoteric Acupuncture in NJ
This process may then allow the client to transition into a tetrahedral geometrical spin field while the acupuncture needles are still inserted and also allows the client an opportunity to access information encoded in his or her Inner Key Codes. In the New Encoding Patterns are designed to shift the client into a tetrahedral spin field. It is while in a tetrahedral geometric spin field consciousness that the client will be given the opportunity to work with a more expanded form of energy and expanded form of consciousness. The visual triangular connections within the New Encoding Patterns create a stronger, more centered energetic field than the field obtainable by more traditional acupuncture protocols.

Dear Dr.Marina Doktorman,I hope this message finds you well! I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the incredible impact your acupuncture sessions have had on my life. Your expertise and care have helped me find relief and healing in ways I never thought possible.When I first sought acupuncture, I was struggling with a combination of issues that affected my overall well-being. Chronic back pain was causing constant discomfort, and my restless nights were dominated by persistent night sweats. Additionally, I was battling frustrating skin issues that seemed to resist all other forms of treatment.From the very first session, I knew I was in good hands. Your thorough understanding of my concerns and willingness to explain the acupuncture process put me at ease. The ambiance of your clinic created a serene and comforting space, setting the tone for a transformative healing journey.What amazed me most was the efficacy of acupuncture in addressing my various health challenges. The impact on my sleep was nothing short of miraculous. After a few sessions, I began experiencing deep, uninterrupted sleep, waking up refreshed and energized—a change I had been longing for, but never found through other methods.Furthermore, the improvement in my skin condition was remarkable. Acupuncture seemed to trigger a healing response, and gradually, my skin issues started to fade away. I couldn't believe the visible transformation, and it did wonders for my self-confidence.As for the night sweats and back pain, they became less frequent and intense with each session. Your targeted approach and skillful needle placement directly addressed the root causes of my discomfort, providing much-needed relief and easing the burdens I had carried for far too long.I cannot stress enough how appreciative I am for the positive impact you've had on my life. Your dedication to helping your patients achieve better health and well-being is truly commendable. I wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone seeking holistic and effective solutions to their health issues.Once again, thank you for your expertise, kindness, and genuine care. You have not only been my acupuncturist but also a catalyst for transformative change in my life. I am forever grateful for the healing journey we embarked on together.Thank you Dr. Marina Doktorman!

This place is awesome! Such a relaxing experience. Marina addresses all my concerns and always makes me feel comfortable. The treatments I received here have solved several of my health issues in just a few sessions after years of OTC medication. I would definitely recommend Pulse for serious health concerns and even if you just want some stress relief or add a new beauty treatment to your regimen! A+ for Marina Doktorman.

I was a patient of Marina Doktorma for about two weeks (October/November 2020), receiving acupuncture treatments for lower back and knee pain. Marina is a true professional. Before beginning each treatment, she explained the treatment options and made sure that I was well informed and comfortable before beginning. She was very gentle as she administered the treatments, (I feel asleep a few times) communicating with me throughout the process. In addition to the premise being very clean, relaxing music made for a very calming experience. Without hesitation, I would return for future treatments if the pain returns. Kenny.

Esoteric Acupuncture - FAQ

While traditional acupuncture primarily focuses on physical health and addressing specific health concerns, Esoteric Acupuncture encompasses a broader perspective, aiming to promote spiritual growth, inner harmony, and overall well-being. The treatment protocols in Esoteric Acupuncture often involve unique needle placements, based on patterns from sacred geometry and energy centers like chakras.
The duration of an Esoteric Acupuncture session can vary, but typically ranges from 60 to 90 minutes. This includes the initial consultation, needle insertion, and a period of relaxation while the needles are in place.
The number of sessions required will vary depending on your individual goals and response to treatment. Some people may experience significant shifts after just one session, while others may require multiple sessions to fully benefit from the practice.
Esoteric Acupuncture can often be effectively combined with other healing modalities, such as Tui-Na massage, aromatherapy, or Chinese herbs, to support overall well-being and personal growth.
