Kimberly likes to “Cuss”! 5/5 (39)

Okay, since it’s officially been published in Acupuncture Today, I can’t keep it a secret any longer… Because you are my friends, I thought I should tell you myself before you read about it online.

I “cuss” in my clinic. 

I’ve been “cussing” for about six months. I wasn’t taught how to “cuss” in TCM school. In fact, I learned this “cussing” technique through a chiropractor. It has been HUGELY beneficial to my practice.

Go ahead and click on my article in Acupuncture Today to see if you might want to learn to “cuss” too. If you are interested, I’ll teach you how!

Okay, so the title of the article must have tipped you off, right?

The truth is I’m not really CUSSING,  but I have done some experimentation with Percussion Therapy via a percussion tool in my clinic. The clinical results have been FR#@K!N% outstanding. My patients love it.

Take a look at the article and let me know what you think. If after reading the article, you are interested in more information on the percussion tool, click here and I’ll send it to you.

Have a GR$@T day!

  1. Great work Kimberly. What instrument did you use? I like to go down the HuoToJiaJi points with tuning forks at the beginning of a treatment. Maybe it is doing similar work.

  2. I like the idea of stimulating the channels some other way along with acupuncture. I did not learn in school if it is better to stimulate before or after needling, but remember always doing the cupping or tui-na after needling. In this case, you are saying to stimulate before needling to open the channels to prepare for the needling effect. This makes a lot of sense too. I wonder if any kind of stimulation would have the increased effect of Qi flow, or if some modalities are better than others. Very interesting, Thank-you and Congratulations Kimberly!!

So, what do you think about it?
