Point to Point Summary 7-18-2015
by Challen Yee, L.Ac.
I am a Licensed Acupuncturist practicing in California since 2007. I am also certified nationally as Diplomate of Oriental Medicine and also licensed to practice in Hawaii.
My ongoing theme in my Point to Point series is to explain in simple terms to help convey the application of acupuncture to the public and those who are largely unfamiliar with the ancient medicine.
For your convenience, I have summarized my recent and ongoing Instagram posts.
Point to Point: This is an example of a treatment of the lower back using several needles at and around the base of the spine. Each is precisely located in both position and depth. Lower back issues can result and or exacerbate problems anywhere in the lower body. (Photo Challen Yee, L.Ac., Menlo Park, Ca).
Point to Point: This spot below the inner ankle bone, when paired with a specific point near the wrist is useful for treating coughs. Each major organ system as defined in Chinese Medicine, like the lungs, have an association with what are known as Channels or Meridians which extend throughout the body in rather specific pathways (photo: Challen Yee, L.Ac., Menlo Park, Ca.).
Point to Point: This point on the side of the wrist is the complementary point for cough for the one below the inner ankle (see previous post). The points can be used bilaterally although it is common to only use one set on opposing sides, ie left foot and right wrist (photo: Challen Yee, L.Ac., Menlo Park, Ca.) .
Point to Point: Head or Scalp Acupuncture has a very wide range of applications. While these points are not on a stroke patient, scalp acupuncture can have a powerful effect on recently affected patients with non-hemorrhagic stroke. These points shown are for vision and balance (Challen Yee, L.Ac, Menlo Park, Ca.).
Point to Point: These locations on the foot have a capacity to affect a wide range of symptoms including, but not limited to, certain types of insomnia, stress, headache, high blood pressure, fever and tinnitus. Use of other points for specific symptoms in conjunction would enhance the effects (Challen Yee, L.Ac., Menlo Park,Ca.).
Best to follow me on Instagram if you want real-time updates for Acupuncture with minimum noise. I post to Twitter and Facebook from Instagram, but the other media venues tend to cover a variety of other non-health subjects.
