Rhythm and Motion: The Magic of Bamboo Moxa • Oran Kivity • Qi106

The characters for acupuncture in Chinese, 針灸zhen jiu, literally translate as needle and moxa.

You surely were introduced to the cigar-like pole moxa and large cones of smoldering mugwort on slices of ginger or aconite in acupuncture school. Perhaps you also were exposed to the Japanese rice grain moxa techniques or burning balls of moxa on the head of needle. Not surprising there are a variety of forms of using Ai Ye to bring a kind of simulative heat into the body.

Posture, Structure, Function and Knife Needles • Brian Bowen • Qi105

Posture, Structure, Function and Knife Needles • Brian Bowen • Qi105

Musculoskeletal issues are the bread and butter of many acupuncture practices. Many people only think of acupuncture when they think about the treatment of pain, and not without good reason. Acupuncture is helpful in the treatment of pain. And as acupuncturists we know we could probably do a lot better too.

In this conversation we explore the use of the Dao Zhen, the knife needle. But more importantly, we take a look at how the body is put together. And how to “see” the story of a person’s physiology.

Resonance and Vibration • Mary Elizabeth Wakefield & MichelAngelo • Qi103

Resonance and Vibration • Mary Elizabeth Wakefield & MichelAngelo • Qi103

Resonance, 感應 gan ying, is an aspect of Chinese philosophy that runs through many aspects of our medicine.

We see resonance as we look through the unfolding of life through the five phases. The way we see east, spring, liver, green, beginnings and wood as having shared energies; the way they resonant the phase of wood.

Aligning Purpose, Resources and Spirit: An Exploration of Business, Wealth and Wellbeing • Matt Ludmer • Qi101

Aligning Purpose, Resources and Spirit: An Exploration of Business, Wealth and Wellbeing • Matt Ludmer • Qi101

Perspective changes everything. 

We can approach the business and financial aspects of our practices a distasteful task that we’d prefer to delegate to someone else. Or we can take it as the opportunity it is to work through our shadow material around the issues of money, power, authority and integrity. 

In this conversation we explore how wealth allows us to interact more fully with our world. How finances are just one aspect of a balanced and integral life.  And how the relationships with community and ourselves are not separate from our relationship to money and purpose.

Anniversary Show: Art, Postcards, Persistence and Practice • Diana Moll • Qi100

Anniversary Show: Art, Postcards, Persistence and Practice • Diana Moll • Qi100

Last year for the first anniversary of Qiological I invited a listener of the podcast to join me for a conversation, this year I did the same. Part of the reason is that I love hearing from listeners of the show. And the other part is that we all have something to share with each other, and I especially love talking to practitioners that you might not know.

I love talking to people that have been working away in their clinics, usually without fanfare or desire for public recognition. And have through their experience learned something of our medicine, and how it helps people.

Pain, Neurobiology, Beauty, and Big Cats: A Surprising Conversation on Veterinary Acupuncture • Bonnie Wright • Qi099

Pain, Neurobiology, Beauty, and Big Cats: A Surprising Conversation on Veterinary Acupuncture • Bonnie Wright • Qi099

I started this episode thinking we would be talking about lions, tigers and bears. But we ended up with glial cells, learning and neuroplasticity. Just like in clinic there are often surprising things that show up, and so too it is podcast conversations.

In this conversation we start with veterinarian acupuncture. But then take a hard right and go deep into neuroscience, the treatment of pain, nervous system regulation and how medicine is beautiful. I loved our discussion as it ranged from the clinical ‘how-to’s” of working with animals, to the deep science of neurobiology, and all woven together with a sense of inquiry and appreciation for the beauty of nature and the practice of medicine.

The Blindness of Experts • Kevin Ergil • Qi095

The Blindness of Experts • Kevin Ergil • Qi095

We rely on the skills of experts. The car mechanic, plumber, web designer, business coach. We want to trust the people that are in the position where our lack of knowledge leaves us vulnerable. We’d like for them to have our best interests in mind, and we also know from experience that we question…

Business Creativity and the Entrepreneurial Perspective • John McGarvey • Qi094

Business Creativity and the Entrepreneurial Perspective • John McGarvey • Qi094

Business is one of those aspects of practice that many new practitioners approach with a not small amount of fear and loathing. Business is often viewed as something bothersome and takes away from focusing on our practice. But the truth is, just like there is a false dichotomy between mind and body, the idea that business is somehow separate from our practice not only is not helpful, but cuts us off from all kinds of creativity and learning.

Treating Trauma Through the Five Phases • Alaine Duncan • Qi093

Treating Trauma Through the Five Phases • Alaine Duncan • Qi093

The experience of trauma is as much a part of life as is falling in love, having family disagreements, and wondering how we fit in this life. And while we tend to focus on the problems that have their roots in traumatic experiences, it is also possible that we can become more resilient and anti-fragile by moving through traumic experiences in a way that allows us to harvest the lessons of the experience.
