Hello everyone.  This is my first post and I’m looking for help!  I am working with my daughter to find help for my 16-year-old granddaughter who has an extreme case of panic disorder.  She also has agoraphobia so is virtually homebound.  This started during the pandemic (over two years ago) and ha…

Hey folks. This morning's qi gong had a long-awaited, seems to me, movement between what I think is ST 9 and UB 45, round thereabouts. I was experiencing a familiar strong 'yin' around ST 9, sat with it (stood, really), and after a while felt a 'yang' of what felt, for about 3/4 of a second, lik…

Some time ago, maybe around 2018 I looked up and I thought I saved the date and book where Ashi points were first discussed but I can't seem to find it. I attempted googling the info again but this time without success. Does anyone know when ashi points first appeared in Chinese texts?

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.
