Essential Clinical Acupuncture in the 21st Century

Michelle came to see me yesterday for the 4th appointment in her second programme of treatment in the last 12 months.t had been two weeks since I had seen her and her initial improvement had been satisfactorily consolidated.

Michelle originally suffered from terrible sinusitis and overwhelming lethargy. Her first program of six or so appointments had seen her condition satisfactorily resolved. That was back in February, her current treatment regime commenced some time early October, the first two treatments spaced a week apart.

Her improvement was immediate and the grinding pain of the sinusitis resolved markedly within 24 hours of her first treatment, the lethargy and effort of getting through the day immediately began to lift and the second treatment boosted her a little more consolidating her rapid improvement.

The headaches had disappeared, her breathing was much easier, the lethargy and tiredness had lifted and Michelle was a happy camper.

Using only acupuncture and not needling deeper than 2 mm on any given point apparently stimulated a significant positive response in Michelle.

I have asked her to come back in three weeks time just before the Christmas Symphony really begins.

I’ll post the treatment I used tomorrow.

In the meantime I hope you have a good time.


PS. The swell has bumped up for the return of ASP World Surfing champion, Mick Fanning. As a ‘Coolie Boy’ ( Aussie speak for native of Coolangatta, Queensland, Australia) he will be welcomed back in style. Many, many high fives to Mick and Team!
