Hi! I've recently started taking 1/2 table spoon of eucommia bark. I bought a small jar to improve/prevent any joint and muscle damage because of aging,  sports/lack of movement,  etc. I'm a woman in my late 30s.  I have looked for information about eucommia bark online and I haven't found any nega…

  I went for an acupuncture treatment yesterday and the acupuncturist forgot to take out a needle in my neck (I believe CV22). Since I felt something in my neck still, I instinctively reached up and touched it, possibly moving it/hitting it when I felt the needle was still in. She then removed it, …

I went for my first acupuncture treatment two weeks ago for ear issues/tinnitus. I received electro acupuncture which was painful for me. The acupuncture points used were in/below my ears. Since the session, my ear issues have improved significantly, however since the treatment I have had a clickin…

Thank you for your response. Just to clarify, she had one needle on my left side of my jaw connecting to one side on the right sid rod my jaw (not two on each side). Is this still ok as far as safety?

Thank you. I have one more question for you. She performed electroacipucture on two points in my jaw, one on the left and one on the right. When I told her the current was too strong on the left but not the right, she told me both were controlled by the same button. This leads me to believe she use…

The short answer is no..., but, the longer answer is maybe... and soon.  There are a host of opportunities in the field of Chinese Medicine for the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning.  Robots delivering acupuncture (which is happening) is probably not the best use of these approach…

Chinese Medicine, which encompasses acupuncture, is a broad and complex system of medicine.  At face value this is neither a good or a bad thing, but the complexity of the diagnostic systems and treatment methods can limit broad usage due to limited numbers of well trained practitioners. Acupressur…

by Abby Stewart, LMT, MLD/C Long covid syndrome shares many striking similarities with chronic fatigue syndrome (myalgic encephalitis), including fatigue, unrestful sleep, post-exertional malaise, brain fog, headache, and nonspecific pain.

in addition to needle pricking, which changes certain vibrations in the body, other aspects must be present - such as compassion, experience, love. if we read about the study of the heart institute, everything will become clear.

There are entire books on the range of uses for cupping, along with when it shouldn't be used, etc.  So providing all of that in a single comment would be difficult.  Most of the general rules can be found in our Japanese acupuncture cupping section.   If there is anything lacking or that needs mor…

I ask those with experience and specialists to explain how cupping works in each of the different types (by explaining the theories) and what the therapist should avoid in some cases and some points. Thank you, we always use you.
