Treating Children With Acupuncture

3/30/2018
More
In this podcast Pia and I discuss the application of acupuncture for children. There are different thoughts as to when it is appropriate to use acupuncture for children. Some feel that children should not have acupuncture treatment until they are 7 years old for girls and 8 years old for boys. My understanding is that this is often the case for children when using abdominal acupuncture because of the nature of it and the effect that it can have on the pre heaven Qi. Pia has made me re think...

Clearing The Emotions

3/28/2018
More
In this podcast Pia and I talk in more detail on emotions and the benefits of cleaning at this phase in the calendar (Chinese New Year) from the transition phase (Earth) between winter (Water) and moving into springtime. The Wood phase of course is related to liver energy which desires to expand in every direction and grow. We discuss how we have been seeing more clients with Liver related problems such as shoulder tension, migraine headaches, irritability, anger and dizziness. Many people...

In this podcast Dave and Pia discuss the upcoming Chinese New Year and the benefits of preparing for both the New Year and also the oncoming Spring season.

Using Chinese Herbs In Your Acupuncture Practice

3/25/2018
More
In this podcast Pia and I discuss the use of the patent herbs and our practices In France and Ireland respectively. We have both studied a limited amount about the use of herbal medicine and this discussion is quite informal. The use of traditional Chinese herbal medicine and ready-made patent formulas is still somewhat of a grey area in Europe and here in Ireland. It seems ironic to me that the pharmaceutical companies begin to buy up Chinese herbal companies and even the farming lands that...

30 60 90 Day Planning

3/23/2018
More
Did you write a marketing plan last year? Probably took you a month to put together and you only looked at it again in November. That’s what I’m like anyway. World class at getting ready. Not taking action. We have all been there. But now I use a different way of planning what I really want. It has radically changed my business and if it works for me it can work for you. I talk about it in this podcast.

Creating Assets

3/21/2018
More
Einstein said that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. The same thing applies to your marketing strategy. If you really want to shift gear and change the scale of your business exponentially (and work less hours) then you need to start building assets. In this podcast I talk about how I have created a book, a training program and online information products based around my passion for abdominal acupuncture. What’s your...

Work ON Your Business

3/20/2018
More
There is a huge difference between being busy and meeting your objectives. Strategic activity takes you up to the next level. Running 24/7 with the misguided idea that you just have to outwork the competition will just leave you down and out. In this podcast I discuss how you can take a step back in order to take a leap forward. There is an amazing destination in front of you and you will get there, but why go on foot when you can fly instead?

Your Marketing Story

3/19/2018
More
Knowing how to tell your own story is the most powerful marketing skill you have. The thing that differentiates you from all the other acupuncturists who practice near you (and compete with you) is your own authentic journey. The twists and turns, the struggles, the moments of inspiration, the lessons you have learned along the way. Your story is amazing, but if nobody hears it….? That’s a problem. In this podcast I talk about how you can create your own marketing story and use it to...

Earth Element Treatments (Pt 2)

This topic is so large and interesting we couldn’t do it all in one. We have continued the conversation into this podcast and I am sure we could continue even more! The Spleen / Stomach are Earth elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine. They are at the centre of the five elements / phases and they are the organs most affected in the season of “Late Summer” and during the change over transition phase from one season to the next. The magical (the He Tou & Lou Shu) number boxes which gave rise...

The Spleen / Stomach are Earth elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine. They are at the centre of the five elements / phases and they are the organs most effected in the season of “Late Summer” and during the change over transition phase from one season to the next. The magical (the He Tou & Lou Shu) number boxes which gave rise to concepts of Yin:Yang and 5 elements and the BaGua also position the number 5 at the centre as it represents Mother Earth with its nurturing & regeneration...

Combining Systems

3/13/2018
More
Abdominal acupuncture (AA) is a gentle yet powerful system of acupuncture, which usually works incredibly well when used on its own. It is also a system that allows for other modalities to be used in conjunction with it. In this article I will describe how I mix and match my treatments and I will suggest some ways that can compliment abdominal, using traditional, ear, scalp, distal and global balance methods. As any acupuncturist knows there are many options available to treat various...
