Acupuncture is an interesting recommendation that seems perfectly in tune with the 8 of Swords. I have a view of this card that is a little different. In the RWS version, the woman in the card seems to be at a dead end, completely stymied. She can't go back from whence she came, she can't see or touch her surrounding environment. Sensory deprivation is the obvious message. Only her feet are unbound and she has to cautiously advance based on intuition alone. For me, the water flowing off the lower right side of the card is the key to solving this dilemma. Pisces rules the feet, and Pisces is considered the "psychic" sign. Engaging that faculty with the off-card flow could bring her to the next stage.

Not sure any of this is useful information, probably only food for thought.
