running wire in finished walls


I want to run new wire from a switch up the finished wall to the ceiling. I want to install recessed lighting in the bedroom. I need ideas how to run the wire up to the ceiling without damaging the walls.

Attic above? Does the switch currently power a ceiling light or an outlet? Is the switch currently fed from the attic?

This is important info. If you have an attic above, makes it much easier. A basement below could come in handy too if you have one, depending on the situation.
Also, do you know which way your ceilings joists run? Parallel or perpendicular to the wall with your light switch?
