Anxiety

Patience is a Virtue Acupuncture can Help

anger and impatience

 

On Sunday mornings sometimes I like to watch “The Sunday Morning Show” on CBS.

This morning the opening piece was about patience and its affect on our health.

Dr. Amit Sood was interviewed by Berry Peterson about his research on impatience at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

“Impatience is not simply the opposite of patience, Sood explained. Rather, the absence of patience brings anxiety, illness, injury, loneliness — and even death.”

It’s negative affects can cause…

  • Elevated Blood pressure
  • Anger and stress levels
  • Aging and Chromosomal DNA abnormalities
  • Heart Attack
  • Feeling of no control

“If you choose to be patient, you are helping yourself. You’re living longer and happier. And you’re helping your loved ones. Being patient is a choice,” Dr. Sood said.

And, I love this one.  Another word Sood said would help us through the pandemic: Resilience. 

Acupuncture can help you choose to be more patient.  It is about establishing a new healthier outlook.

Many acupuncture points help people gain insight, and a new perspective.

To develop a more patient and resilient disposition you can try acupressure.  Press, tap or rub each of these points one minute each twice daily. Here are a few example points to use.

Du-Governor 20: One Hundred Meetings

Gives perspective of what life is about as an individual and humankind, what is the right way.  Moves a person forward to a different level of understanding.  Clears mind and lifts spirit.

Location: at the crown top of head.  Found by drawing an imaginary line from the tips of your ears to the center of your head, and center line from the tip of your nose.

Gallbladder 21: Shoulder Well.   

This is a great point to relax the tension held in the shoulders.  It can often stimulate the relaxation of the diaphragm, and relaxed slower breathing.  It helps bring stuck Qi-energy from the head, shoulders, and neck down relieving headache, shoulder and neck pain.

Location: at the highest point of shoulder midway between the lower border of spineous process of 7th Cervical vertebra 1 and the acromion.  Just pinch the upper trapezius muscle with your thumb and middle finger.

Liver 13: Chapter Gate.  This is an awesome point also known as the gate of hope.  It is useful in helping someone move forward in different chapters of their life.  It is regulating in that the gate is open allowing movement forward, but with appropriate patience.  This means not speeding ahead before it’s time.  Plans are not always clear, and we don’t have control.  We can learn that this is alright, and we can let go of the need to always be right, and to always have control.  All will be well.  This point gives us hope that the flow of life is moving as nature intended.  

Location: lies at the tip of the 11th rib, or just inferior and anterior to it.  Just feel for the bottom of your rib cage on the anterior lateral aspect.

shoulder pain relieved by acupuncture

 

Shoulder pain and acupuncture Blog Banner by Michele Arnold
“Acupuncture relieves shoulder pain, inflammation, and range of motion impingement. Researchers from the Yuxi Hospital of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) investigated the efficacy of acupuncture for the treatment of acute shoulder periarthritis. Commonly known as frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis, this condition is an inflammatory disorder of the rotator cuff and surrounding tissues that leads to pain and immobility of the shoulder. The investigation reveals that acupuncture has a total effective rate exceeding 90%.”

It is of no surprise to me to read about positive findings in studies of acupuncture and shoulder pain.  The following was posted from Health CMI, where I frequently receive some news and updates.
