Grounding

Fascinating info covered at the Electro-Aupuncture Medicine seminar on Grounding research and it’s effects:

  • Diffuse inflammation
  • Reduces chronic pain
  • Sleep improves
  • Better energy
  • Less stress
  • Thins blood – blood cells clump when not grounded and stop clumping when grounded
  • Speeds healing
  • Accelerates recovery from exercise
  • Shields body from Electromagnetic Fields

Grounding can be as simple as standing outside barefoot!  Jump in the ocean and the grounding effect is much faster.  That’s why people feel so good when they swim in the ocean.

Electro-Acupuncture Medicine with Dr. Jeremy Steiner

The information is fascinating and deeper than I expected.  Dr. Jeremy Steiner opened with an overview of Electro-Acupuncture and I quickly realized that this class is going to be more than I expected. 

Overview of Electro-Acupuncture Medicine according to Dr. Steiner:

“a field of potential diagnostic and treatment techniques which uses acupuncture and electricity to modulate, enhance, or trigger the human body to produce and secrete medicinal molecules or to regulate physiology”.

He continued to talk about electricity, electrons and grounding oneself.  He also, touched on protons as inflammation and using electrons (Electro-Acupuncture Medicine) to treat the inflammation.  I can’t wait to use this in my Clinic!

Electro-Acupuncture Medicine

I must be a geek!  I am so excited for a 2 day Electro-Acupuncture Medicine continuing education class I will be attending November 4th and 5th in South Jersey.  Electro-Acupuncture is a subject I have been wanting for quite some time.  I have high expectations for this class and my acupuncture practice as a result of deeper understanding of Electro-Acupuncture.

Fire Cider a Natural Cold and Flu Remedy

I was introduced to Fire Cider a couple of years ago, I tasted it and I was hooked, I loved the taste.  I just needed to see the benefits.

Fire Cider is taking raw apple cider vinegar, which already has many health benefits, and making it even better.  In the past, when I felt a bit under the weather or when one of my kids got sick, I would start doing things to boost my immune system, like miso soup with lots of garlic or taking raw apple cider vinegar, until I met Fire Cider.

Fire Cider is raw apple cider on steroids and now is the time to make it, in preparation for cold and flu season.  Basically, you take raw apple cider vinegar and mix in chopped roots and vegetables with immune boosting qualities, put them in a glass jar, store for 4 weeks and then strain the FIre Cider through a cheesecloth and store in the fridge.  Click here for the recipe that I use and love.

I now store Fire Cider in my fridge and take it when I think I may be coming down with something or when someone in my household is sick.  I have definitely noticed it’s effects and believe it has helps me fight off some colds!

Try it and let me know that you thing.

Acupuncture and Relaxation

Many people are hesitant to try acupuncture or wont at all because it involves needles.  I get that.  But these needles are so thin and don’t really hurt.  Once in a while there will be some sharpness but for most, it is just a pinch.

When I have new patients, the reaction after the first needle insertion is that they don’t believe I put a needle in yet or they will say, “is that it?”  After the treatment is complete people are amazed at how little they felt and how RELAXING it felt to lay there with the needles.

I call it “Acuhigh”, it is hard to describe, but a very deep relaxation is experienced and patients look forward to having acupuncture.

Most patients fall asleep during treatment.  In fact, today, I treated a 17 year old male and I could not wake him up after the treatment.  Most people wake up when I lightly knock on the door and enter to get them up, but this time I just could not wake this patient up.

immediate relief!

This is the email I woke up to this morning:

“I got up this morning and forgot I even had plantar fasciitis!  See you tomorrow at 11”

How much more gratifying can my work be?  Emails like this thrill me, providing a service that has this kind of effect is why I am an acupuncturist.

I have been an acupuncturist for 16 years and this response still amazes me. Why?  I have treated so many people with plantar fasciitis and 80% of the cases have 80% improvement within the first 3 treatments.  There is the 20% that are more difficult cases and respond slower to acupuncture.  That 20% leaves me second guessing and amazed.

Acupuncture Happy Hour

Today, I administered another Acupuncture Happy Hour in a corporate setting.  These events are so much fun.  Attendees receive an ear acupuncture treatment for relaxation and stress reduction in a group setting.  Who can’t use some relaxation?

I love these events because the majority of the people seen have not had acupuncture before and everyone is so curious.  The response is always very positive, everyone loves the experience and when they go back to their desks talking about it, more people want to experience it.  Acupuncture spreads like wild fire and more people are exposed which makes me happy to share about acupuncture.

You can bring this event to your workplace or a group.  Acupuncture Happy Hour can be set up in many ways.  Typically, it is in a room large enough to hold many people, the lights are dimmed with nice music is softly playing.  You enter the room, sign in, ask as many questions as you need, then relax in a chair and receive ear acupuncture for stress reduction.  Close your eyes and let the treatment take over.  After about 20 minutes your treatment will be complete and you can ask more questions if anything comes to mind.

If this is your first experience with acupuncture, you will be amazed how little you feel when the pins are inserted and how much you relax.  The state of relaxation that acupuncture evokes is deep, I call it acuhigh. The only problem with these events, you wont want to go back to work after you relax. Just kidding, you will return to work feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready.

If you would like your workplace to offer an Acupuncture Happy Hour, you may put me in touch with the person that arranges wellness programs or lunch and learns.
