Short and Sweet 5/5 (35)

Good morning. I hope that your holiday weekend has been fabulous. Today’s blog is short and sweet.

I’d like to share an article that was written by one of our AcuGraph users in China. Matthew Scott writes regular articles that you may be interested in following. He is a professionally-trained Chinese-medicine practitioner from Australia. In 2000, Matthew moved to China for a few months to further his studies in Chinese medicine and never went back. I hope that you enjoy reading his article.

I really love hearing from our AcuGraph practitioners. Do you write articles for your own or another blog? I want to know so that I can follow you! Please send me a note and let me know if you write articles too. Who knows, maybe you’ll be featured in our newsletter sometime as well.

Have a great day!

Kimberly Thompson, L.Ac.

  1. Hi Kimberly,
    Can you give me some feedback on doing self-AcuGraphs. Is it accurate? Or should I have someone else do it on me? I have been doing it and just wanted to hear your feedback.

    1. You can do an AcuGraph screening on yourself and it is accurate. The harder part would be treating yourself! But, I have come up with a really good way to give a self-treatment. I like to graph myself, and then put tacks on the points that need to be treated. If you put a Band-Aid over the tack it will stay for a couple of days, and you can easily push on the tacks multiple times per day to stimulate the points. As practitioners, we never get treated enough, do we?


So, what do you think about it?
