Recently, I did something I have never done before…
It forced me to venture way outside my comfort zone.
But it was a memorable experience nonetheless:
I was interviewed for an American Acupuncture podcast show!
I shared my thoughts on the integration of Eastern and Western intervention techniques for chronic pain management. We also chatted about where acupuncture fits in through the lens of modern day Scientific research.
I found it difficult not following a script. But it was key to creating an organic and natural conversation surrounding everything from acupuncture to chronic conditions – and how I became an Acupuncturist accidentally.
Want to know what you’ll hear during the interview?
Here is just a glimpse at the golden nuggets we covered during our time together:
● Your body is built to self-heal. But there is a specific wear-and-tear pattern that impacts your body’s natural ability to recover. Learn what it is at 2:21.
● Ever wonder why you’re not improving? Often, the problem is not where you expected. In fact, many people think the problem is coming from outside of their body – when it is actually coming from within. Learn more at 5:00.
● Discover my painful journey into Chinese medicine at 8:17 and learn the TRUTH once and for all about how I accidentally became the “grasshopper” to my master.
● One of the most common misconceptions is that acupuncture is only used to treat pain. I blow the lid off this myth and explain how acupuncture can be used to treat chronic conditions at 13:15.
● Diving deeper into treating chronic pain with acupuncture, I explain all the nuts and bolts of treatment including the importance of strategic thinking, problem solving and target selection at 20:44.
● I lift the veil off of acupuncture’s mysterious powers and reveal exactly how acupuncture works using a “neuro anatomical integrated approach” (a neuro, what? I’ll explain it all at 31:14)
● At 33:37, you’ll hear about the latest cutting-edge research in acupuncture and how our body’s systems connect.
● It’s not enough to merely mask pain. To truly recover from injury, you have to learn how to “get out” of pain by troubleshooting your injuries. I show you how at 39:22.
So pop in your headphones and listen to my very first podcast interview here. And as always, if you have any questions – do not hesitate to get in touch.
Best, Sam Lo
