Eastern Approach to Love

This week has been an incredible day at sea. We are on an Irish charter but most of my guest are American. Except for this one special lady. 

 

She came into my wonderful office at sea with bright eyes and curiosity about how to treat her leg pain. I see leg pain daily, nothing unusual. Infact its the most common condition I see in my field. Within about three days the issue is resolved.  

Our first treatment together was successful, however something strange happened in the moment of her second treatment with me. She was in tears on the table, sobbing. She wasn’t crying because she was in pain. It was a different kind of cry. Something deeper, more emotional. 

I quicky checked my schedule for my next guest and ran back to attend to my guest needs.

I asked, what else is going on. She replied,  

“My husband passed seven months ago. Its strange that I am having a breakdown because I’ve been holding everything together.” 

The body has a funny way of dealing with pain. Infact emotional pain pierces through our physical body and affects The musculoskeletal system. It was clear that moving the physical pain triggered emotional pain. This is the best thing that could happen in a treatment and my guest agreed. 

I love how eastern medicine approaches the body mind and spirit and one entity. They are not seprate but one in the same. 

Healing begins with healing the heart. After I had quickly removed the needles I addresses a new protocol, guided my guest through a breathing meditation.  

Acupuncture pierces the heart, the soul and heals the body in such an elloquent way. With love kindness and hope, when western medicine over medicates us with pills to cover up the pain. 

No matter where we come from, how long the journey or how hard we fall, our soul our spirit needs love just as much as the human living in it.

I love being in practice at sea. It's such a grand opportunity to tell the world how Chinese Medicine is changing lives, how I am changing lives every day using this medicine that make's westerners scratch their head. I kinda feel like a little Einstein, especially when my patients come down the corridor with a big smile and no feeling of discomfort after the first treatment. 

The number one chief complaint I get on board is muscle discomfort, chronic body discomfort associated with activity or in activity. Chinese Medicine (TCM)  Utilizes a different language to describe imbalance in the body and mind. Then TCM apply's the treatment protocol for each individual symptom.  

Effectively TCM addresses the root cause of an issue using five branches. Herbology is one of those branches. I get the best results when I use essential oils and when I use essential oils on my patients. Essential oils provide an effective tool in between acupuncture visits. 


Soothing Rub and Soothing essential oils is the best solution for muscle discomfort right off the bat. However a more individualized consultation is recommended.  To use this soothing rub you would

  • Apply on feet and knees before and after exercise
  • Perfect for a soothing massage after a long day of house work
  • Apply to hands and feet after gardening
  • Connect with your partner by giving them a massage with the soothing rub
  • Rub the soothing blend on lower back muscles after a day of heavy lifting at work or during a move
  • Massage this soothing blend with a few drops of carrier oil legs before bedtime
  • After long hours on the computer, try rubbing soothing essential oil blend on your fingers, wrists, shoulders, and neck
  • A few drops of Soothing Blend diluted in Fractionated Coconut Oil can be a part of a cooling and comforting massage after a workout
  • Soothing blend is also perfect after any workout

Apply oil to the point between the thumb and index finger. This is an important point that suppresses pain we call it LI4. 

LI4 suppresses pain. One mandatory point for most patients with chronic discomfort
