How To Find JOY Through Acupuncture & Why Scar Tissue Might Be Hurting You
Traditional acupuncture, believed to have originated around 100 BC in China, involves the belief that a "life force" (qi) circulates within the body in lines called meridians.
The meridian system is a concept in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that connects the Yin and Yang energy forces of the body.
We know that everything is energy.
We know from Albert Einstein and his world-changing E=mc2 formula that energy can not be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.
It should be surprising then to think of our bodies, as a highway of sorts, of energy.
We know, if we’ve been on AEIOU.world for more than five minutes, that the body has 70-100 trillion cells doing a HAPPY dance at any given moment.
So how much of a stretch is it to think that those cells are moving along energy highways or meridians, and these pathways sometimes get jacked up..?
If we have a surgery, we may be disrupting the flow of energy from one meridian to the next or simply along the same energy highway.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a gallbladder surgery, a c-section, a breast augmentation or a knee replacement, when the tissue, muscles and blood vessels are cut, there is also a cutting or disruption of the flow - of well, energy!
And that’s where today’s guest comes in.
He sees people of all shapes and sizes walk into his practice for a variety of issues. From lower back pain and headaches to anxiety and emotional instability.
His answer, or one answer that helps those he sees, is acupuncture.
But often times the pain we feel is really a symptom of an energy blockage, stoppage or disruption, such as scar tissue from a surgery.
What if you learned that the scar tissue from a breast implant or reduction might be leading to digestive issues?
This topic is fascinating but really, you should dive into today’s interview and discover more from our next guess, the highly educated and gentle soul, Dr. Brian Hardy. (The string of letters after his name goes something like this: D.C, M.S., L.Ac., CCN, DACBN, and yes, he is ALSO an Acupuncturist! But don't let that fool you into thinking he's too smart to also be down-to-earth.)
With a love of helping people, Dr. Hardly shares how acupuncture doesn’t have to be something to fear (even though needles are involved) but something to enjoy for the blessings and JOY it can bring someone in three to five session or less.
Dr. Hardy also touches on cupping therapy, which is form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin.
The vacuum can be created either by the heating and subsequent cooling of the air in the cup, or via a mechanical pump. The cup is usually left in place for somewhere between five and fifteen minutes. Dr. Hardy has had success in bringing blood flow back to scar tissues which allows for healing and, often times, complete fading of the scar.
