Differences between cosmetic, facial and full body acupuncture treatments; East vs West medical term confusion, and he walks us through a treatment protocol with constitutional facial acupuncture. A powerful relationship story at the end. Terry Fox Lac
A backstory that starts with a fibromyalgia mom that got shoulder rubs leads to massage therapy school that had acupressure and a few other eastern classes, to being the first massage therapist working at a hospital in Wyoming and a spark that got him to finally become a licensed Acupuncturist.
The acupuncturists in Fort Collins, CO have a monthly meeting over cocktails to socialize and network so that patients can be referred to someone with more knowledge in certain areas. For instance: Mr. Fox is great at trigeminal neuralgia but refers out for most fertility issues. How can we do that in our local community and with our doctor specialties?
Learn how facial acupuncture (which is not just getting rid of wrinkles) started in Colorado and over time students became teachers and created their own programs.
What’s the difference between Cosmetic and Constitutional based Facial Acupuncture?
Terry Fox walks us through his process in evaluating and treating someone. If you are unfamiliar with acupuncture, this will open your eyes. He also explains and relates certain facial wrinkles to certain organ deficiencies in the Chinese Medicine way of thinking.
We discuss the eastern way of describing health conditions compared to what we could use in western vernacular so that it sounds more “academic and scientific.”
Why would soaking your feet in hot water, green tea and peach seeds have a benefit to your health?
He has two touching stories as to why he shifted his focus from musculoskeletal disorders to facial disorders like bells palsy, trigeminal neuralgia (extremely painful, icepick like pain in the face) and more.
Two types of energy: conceptual energy given at birth and the other is postnatal qi from food, water and air. What are they and this is another example of how changing the words we use to describe an idea could affect how mainstream a treatment is… think epigenetics and homeostasis.
What can you ascertain about someone’s health from their pulse?
