The Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Contributions of the Reichian Concept of Orgone Presented As A Powerful Tool For Diagnosis And Treatment.

Dedicated to Federico Navarro, my mentor.

For those who know separately, either the tradition of Chinese acupuncture or orgonomy, a perception of both disciplines may result in a feeling of a strange and powerful familial air. According to Chinese wisdom, there is a much more which unites than that which separates. The two sciences share observations on the reality and cognition of human problems. Therefore it was inevitable that somebody would ask, What is it that enables acupuncture points to irradiate when connected to orgone energy accumulators? That person was the German orgonomist Bernd Senf, who in 1979 first published an article about the effects of the orgone radiation on acupuncture points. His study involved 150 persons and had the evocative title of: ‘Wilhelm Reich: Discoverer of Acupuncture Energy?’

Senf’s results are both illustrative and convincing. In his study, the effects of orgone irradiation of specific acupuncture points agreed with the known effects of strong stimulation of those points in TCM theory. For those who would disavow acupuncture it is helpful to note that each point has very specific effects when it is used. At present there are known to be more than 1500 acupuncture points. The acupuncture points are situated along meridians and each has a certain income of energy. The meridians themselves appear to reflect lines of force, such as those that can occur within a crystal.

Senf selected some of these acupuncture points. Namely, point 67 of the Bladder meridian, point 3 of the Triple Burner meridian, point 5 of Lung meridian and point 2 of the Liver meridian for energising with orgone. He also made another use of several of these points by the application of a small Dor-buster to extract energy from the selected points (according to the specific CM diagnosis of the study volunteer). It is not appropriate now to explain in detail the effects of these procedures. However, it is acknowledged that in all the cases, the result of the orgone energising or energy extraction coincided exactly with the clinical description of the action of those points in CM theory.

2. 1. Advances in Investigation

From 1985, following the ambitious work of Senf, I resolved to combine acupuncture with orgonomy both theoretically and practically. The concrete situation of that attempt is based within my medical dispensary in Buenos Aires in Argentina. I already had thirteen years of experience with acupuncture and the study of the important works of Reich. I felt that a verification of the experiment of Senf and an enlargement of its implications in clinical practice were crucial. Almost the whole orgone-acupuncture work appeared to become obscured, save for certain moments, when I was able to share the theory or energy equipment with friends.

Before outlining my work with orgone-acupuncture, I would like to quantify the importance of some comments mentioned at the beginning of this section. The act of working with the core equipment of medical orgonomy (orgone accumulators and dor-busters) marries perfectly with the methodology of acupuncture. There are two essential points of practice when working with acupuncture points-stimulating or inhibiting bio-energy. Stimulation corresponds to the use of an orgone accumulator. Inhibition corresponds to the use of a dor-buster. This terminology is not however exactly interchangeable for the following reason. Classical acupuncture uses the needles (or other methods) to deviate the energy flux within the internal environment of the organism. Energy is moved from where it is in excess to where it is scarce. Orgone energising devices however incorporate free energy from the atmosphere (outside of the organism) to energise the acupuncture point. Orgone Dor-busting devices also extract (to the exterior) excess energy that may be blocking an acupuncture point. In spite of the above difference, the concordance between acupuncture and orgonomy is evident. This concordance is verified in clinical practice. It is also encouraging to note that both disciplines try to work towards the normalisation of energy flows and not merely the disappearance of symptoms.

Acupuncture and orgonomy share a functional conception of energy. Any differences between the disciplines are not necessarily an obstacle to the complementary results obtained both in theory and in practice.

2. 2. Method of Diagnosis

It would be a great satisfaction to detail all the methodology and the consequences involved in the combination of acupuncture and orgonomy in its many different aspects (neuro-physiological, bio-energetic medical and social aspects etc). The following however is a summary of the beginnings of a working system that incorporates both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects.

The first task is to obtain information about the energetic situation of the person that is in treatment. Two particular aspects are of greatest interest-the quality of the energy and its distribution (the equilibrium or non-equilibrium of the energy).

The methodology consists in probing 31 acupuncture points with a testing device of the Ryodoraku School of Japanese Electro-acupuncture. This device measures the electrical resistance of each point in microamperes. It is of course not measuring directly the orgone energy quanta of each point, but its electric expression. However, the obtained measure (between 0 and 200 microamperes) is useful in diagnosis and appears correct clinically. This diagnostic system cannot assess how much orgone or dor energy (negative orgone) is stored within the acupuncture points and meridians. However, the obtained information is valuable in gauging the energetic equilibrium. A diagnosis according to the basic laws of traditional acupuncture (Yin/Yang, Five Energetic Systems/Organs, Principal meridians, Ancient meridians, Triple Burner Energetic System etc) is also carried out.

The exploration of the points is of value from an orgonomic perspective as it provides an objective measurement of Reich’s seven bodily segments. Through extensive bio-electrical research I have selected acupuncture points that are representative of energetic changes in each Reichian segment. The following graph represents a large sample of patients who have had diagnosis and treatment. The graph also demonstrates the typical character structures in society. The graph is based on 2367 separate measurements taken from 1989 to April 2002.

To understand the graph we must refer to the 7 body segments that Reich described-

Segment 1 = Ocular

Segment 2 = Oral

Segment 3 = Cervical

Segment 4 = Thoracic

Segment 5 = Diaphragmatic

Segment 6 = Abdominal

Segment 7 = Pelvic

These segments form into rings. In the graph that follows it can be observed that the majority of the test subjects have an energy overload in the head area, an energetic deficit in the abdomen and pelvis, and blockages in the diaphragm. This has important social consequences that the orgonomist is able to understand, develop and explain. This methodology contributes objective information regarding the individual armouring processes and the substructure of the emotional desert that we inhabit.  



From statistical analysis of bio-electrical data, the bio-energetic situation of the principle meridians can be depicted on various graphs (not shown here). Using this data one can assess by comparison the energetic situation of the principal meridians. One can tell whether the person has an appropriate quantity of energy (compared to the average for their sex and age groups). The averages used were obtained through 3900 separate measurements.

Some broad energetic categories are as follows-

       Normal-Orgonia (normal quantity of energy)

       Anorgonia (very little energy)

       Hiccup-Orgonia (high and low energy levels)

       Hyper-Orgonía (energy excess)

       Dis-Orgonia (unbalanced energy)

Dis-Orgonia (unbalanced energy) is able to coexist with any of the other energetic situations. As is always the case in traditional acupuncture, the selection of acupuncture points for treatment is based on the objective of achieving equilibrium of energy. Any energetic imbalances are contradicted by the selection of specific acupuncture points. Points are selected to stimulate the meridians that are characterised by Hiccup-Orgonia (high and low energy levels) and to inhibit those meridians that are characterised by energy excess (Hyper-Orgonia). Next we will explore how this energetic balancing is achieved. This is the goal of the therapeutic method.

2. 3. Therapeutic Method

Before making a summary of the treatment we can briefly examine the devices used in medical orgonomy, concentrating on those used in orgone-acupuncture.

Firstly there is the orgone accumulating tube that is an adaptation of Reich’s orgone cabinet accumulators for use with acupuncture. It consists of a hollow galvanised iron tube 30 cm in length. This tube is wrapped in stainless steel sheets (0.1/0.2 mm in thickness) layered alternatively with sheets of thin polythene. These tubes have one sealed end with the other end open for directing toward the acupuncture point.

The second device employed is an orgone-plaster made from alternate layers of steel and polythene. This device is placed on the skin over a deficient acupuncture point (Hypo-Orgonia) each day for a set time by the patient.

Finally, there is the energy extractor, the dor-buster. This consists of a hollow steel tube, also of 30cm in length that is connected to a cable that is exposed to running water.

These are the three main devices. As for the methodology, there are many variables. During treatment one or more of the following procedures may be used-

       Use of two orgone accumulating tubes toward the representative points of the meridians that are characterised by variable levels of energy (Hiccup-Orgonia).

       Use of two dor-busting tubes toward points that discharge energy in meridians characterised by excess of energy (Hyper-orgonia).

       Use of needles in various points combined with use of dor-buster tube.

       Use of orgone accumulating tube toward a general acupuncture point daily.

       Use of the orgone accumulating plaster on a point to raise general energy levels or toward a specific function.

       Specific use of the Dor-buster

2. 4. Overall Conclusion

Experience with the Acupuncture Point Conception Vessel-6

Point 6 of the meridian Conception Vessel (CV-6) is a very important acupuncture point. It is located under the navel. The exact location is unique to each organism. Its name in Chinese is Qi-Hai and it means Sea of Energy.

This point is used as a general point to augment the overall levels of energy.

Explanation of this point is appropriate to conclude this article due to the extraordinary results that I have systematically obtained through its use in the last sixteen years. It is certain that appropriate results will be obtained with this point when low energy levels have been diagnosed. However, almost any person is able to benefit from this point (with the use of the orgone tubes or orgone plasters).

Having mentioned the above, it is useful to note some of the advantages of the use of orgone energy within the acupuncture system-

       The effect is smoother and more predictable than placing a person inside an orgone accumulating cabinet. This is because acupuncture permits the energy to be distributed within the organism through a penetrative net of meridians and collateral networks. This avoids the radiation reinforcing already existing energetic blockages.

       Verifications of energy levels using the measurements of the points before and after the orgone energising can enable a well-balanced distribution of the Orgone energy. This is of great theoretical and practical importance because improving the distribution of energy not only softens the armouring but is also a first step to achieving long term improvements in energy levels.

       The people that have used these procedures in treatments improve in a demonstrable way both objectively and subjectively. It is unlikely that a placebo effect is occurring when the persons uniformly report a major increase in energy, especially after treatment.

       The use of the orgone devices demonstrates that the incorporation of orgone energy improves the functional movement of organisms. The orgone accumulators function as a catalytic frontier between the cosmic ocean of energy and the individual organism.

       This energising method is safe, because the CV6 point informs the person if it is overloaded. If this occurs the person feels heaviness, warmth or a disagreeable sensation and usually suspends the energising process spontaneously.
