I still remember many years ago, the loud "Yuck" from my wife at the time when we were together watching the Chinese movie "Last Emperor."

I always advise my graduates to examine their group practice or treatment rooms with fresh eyes after they leave my CE workshops.

"Do your young clients run into your space with joy, or hang around the door?"

Recently, an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that, "neither laser nor needle acupuncture conferred benefit over sham for pain or function" among older chronic knee pain patients. We, the practitioners of acupuncture and more broadly, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), believe this conclusion is premature.
