Nuisances of acupuncture point selection, does not being Asian matter, can you only observe the body to find a point, why not just free needle, linguistic chatter, and the low down on herb importance. Alexandra Suozzo goes behind the curtain on e61.
The Mysteries of Acupuncture abound and we joke about that topic plus secrets and nuisances of point selection that never get revealed.
She discusses her first taste of acupuncture while in fashion school in New York and having a depression type experience. Acupuncture school is real work; it’s not massage but with needles. Plus not only do you learn the whole basics of medical school and other doctor based schools, but you have to learn a whole new thought process on treating the body (eastern style). After graduating and starting a practice within the last year at age 26, hear a perspective that is about as fresh as you can get.
Can you learn a skill of observing the body presentation and inserting a needle in the right spot or is it innate? She tells a great story about manipulating a needle and helping a shoulder pain, but it’s not quite what you think. How do emotions play a role in your manifestation of health?
Does being a ‘white girl’ doing acupuncture cause difficulty in getting new patients and building trust?
Why do American Acupuncturist use the tubes over the needles, instead of free needleling like China? Some states limit the herb part of an acupuncturist job description… why is that and does Alex prefer pills, compounding or teas?
What do you do when some of your friends aren’t there to share in your success anymore? What about when your friends can’t quite relate to the pressures of being a doctor and patient care and running a business?
Enjoy linguistics? We go into Russian, Ukrainian and Chinese.
What are the perks to being single, enjoying that and really exploring who you are prior to a serious relationship?
