WEBINAR- Power in the Protocol: AcuGraph and the Kidney Return 4.67/5 (12)

We’ve all encountered patients who, for whatever reason, seem to have very little qi available with which to work.

Acupuncture for Pain Relief: Qi and Blood Stagnation Tips 4.88/5 (16)

Pain is the number one chief complaint in any acupuncture clinic. Why is that? There is a traditional Chinese saying which states: “If there is free flow, there is no pain. If there is pain, there is no free flow.” Free flow relates to movement of qi and blood, which move together. If qi and blood are not moving at optimum capacity, symptoms occur. Pain is an obvious side effect of qi and blood stagnation.... Read more
