In traditional Chinese medicine, the Seven Dragons treatment addresses possession. Rather than just possession by spirits, the person is overtaken by beliefs or emotions collected in this life or a previous one. They cannot live fully, and emptiness fills their eyes. They are separated from the self. My possession was anger. The anger was stuck in my abdomen, she told me. So, the Chinese Mrs. Kim silently said a prayer, and stuck seven points on my body with needles. Each needle resonated like energetic ripples through my limbs and torso. I began to relax, and think about my anger.
