Hey guys! Today I wanted to share this exercise for facilitating good posture and proper breathing. The exercise is called “Breuger’s Position” and the best part is that you can do it at your desk during work.

1) Start off seated, sitting straight up
2) Spread feet with knees facing outwards
3) Open the arms with palms facing forward
4) Tuck the chin slightly in and look straight forward
5) Focus on belly breathing and hold it for 10 breaths

You can perform this throughout the day and while taking mini-breaks during work.

Today’s TCM Toolkit is on NUTRITION. Just like in Western Medicine, nutrition plays a vital role in the Traditional Chinese Medical view of health.

TCM nutrition classifies foods into 6 basic flavors: bitter, sweet, acrid, salty, sour, and bland. The flavors determine how the food impacts the body and your specific constitution. In addition, TCM nutrition takes into consideration how the food is prepared, which may change a certain food’s effect on the body. For example, making a vegetable stew gives it a warming nature and benefits digestion, while raw veggies contain a cooling nature. Since we are in the summer season, having some raw veggies in moderation may help to cool you down when it gets too hot.

During the ongoing COVID pandemic, majority of us have been able to work from home. Even though working from home has many advantages, there are still some disadvantages like neck pain/soreness after sitting in front of a computer prolonged periods of time.

The good news is that Chiropractic care can be very effective at resolving neck pain/soreness. Chiropractic adjustments mobilize the joints in our neck to increase range of motion and decrease pain. In addition, we also include take-home stretches as part of the treatment. Here is one great stretch for neck pain:

1) Look down towards one pants pocket.
2) Allow your hand to rest on the back of your head.
3) Let gravity apply pressure downwards to stretch your neck.
4) Hold 10-15 seconds and repeat on the other side.
5) You can modify the pressure to your liking.

In today’s TCM toolkit, we will be discussing the therapeutic effects of Cupping. Cupping really took off in popularity after cupping marks were seen on Michael Phelps during the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Now many practitioners, in addition to acupuncturists, perform cupping as an adjunctive therapy.

Cupping is very effective at eliminating blood stasis which can be the root cause of pain throughout the body. Cupping creates a suction force that lifts up the various skin and muscle layers. This uplifting force allows new blood filled with nutrients to enter the affected area, while old blood can exit alongside toxins.

At Huang Wellness Center, we use fire to generate the suction on glass cups and can apply an herbal lubricant to perform slide cupping. After a cupping sessions, it is important to stay hydrated to flush out the toxins released from cupping.

Hey guys, I know it’s been awhile but today’s TCM Toolkit is on Chinese Herbs. Chinese herbs is a large component of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is placed at the same level of importance as Acupuncture, sometimes even higher.

Chinese herbs can be taken in many different forms and prepared in many different ways, allowing it to be incredibly versatile in its effects. Each herb has a temperature and taste characteristic which help determines its function and how it can be utilized to treat certain conditions. For example, mint is considered to have a cooling temperature and acrid, aromatic taste allowing it to have the function of reducing stress. Another great example is watermelon, which is great for cooling you down when you are feeling too hot in the summer.

Chinese herbs are very powerful and can have negative side effects if used inappropriately. Therefore, if you are interested in taking Chinese herbs then you should consult an herbs expert.

Hey guys! Today’s TCM toolkit is on Tui Na AKA Chinese Medical Massage.

Tui Na is defined as the “ancient healing art of fingers and strength” and directly translated as “push and grasp”. Tui Na involves the use of various hand techniques to manipulate the soft tissues of the body and can free up blockages within the body’s meridians.

Tui Na is incredibly effective for treating musculoskeletal problems as well as stress related disorders. At Huang Wellness Center, we commonly utilize Tui Na alongside acupuncture and chiropractic treatments to enhance the healing process.

Although Tui Na is a great treatment for patients, it can be tough on the practitioner’s body and joints. Personally, I practice a Tendon/Ligament Strengthening Qi Gong to protect my body and joints so that I can optimally perform Tui Na for all my patients throughout the day.
