Dishwashing Hands 5/5 (3)

Here’s a tip: Don’t graph your patient if their hands have spent the last few minutes in water. Allow me to illustrate. The other day I decided to graph my wife at home. We had just finished cleaning the kitchen and doing dishes, so her hands had been continually wet for about 15 minutes. Take a look at her graph:                         Note that all... Read more

Tonification Squared 5/5 (5)

Today I’d like to address a question I’m often asked about the appropriate way to needle the acupuncture points that are suggested by the AcuGraph system. If you don’t use needles in your practice, this information is equally applicable to laser, electricity, or whatever treatment modality you use. The question usually is phrased something like this: “How do I know which points to tonify and which points to sedate?” or “I understand that I should... Read more
