When a patient comes to me I ask myself, 'What blocks this patients healing?' These blocks are frequently blood stagnation, which compromise the viscera and musculoskeletal systems. They are often neurogenic (originating in nerves) and create pain loops in the lower brain, which controls physiology. The brain reduces blood flow to this chronic pain area, thinking the area is infected and will lead to sepsis (systemic infection). The ancient Chinese learned that acupuncture and herbs calm this pain loop, opening up blood flow and consequent healing. As abstract as this may sound, I have great results working with this daily in my clinic. I would like to help you.
