LI 5: Powerful

The large intestine channel is diverse and interesting and can help with ghosts!

I was just revising some point location and I found the following about Large Intestine 5:
Dispels Wind Heat
Indicated for headaches, redness, pain and swelling of the eye, toothache, sore throat and pain of the wrist.
Also it's a point used to aide in quitting smoking.
But used with BL61 and LI7 it's great if you're seeing ghosts...

Magnolia Healing Centre: Acupuncture Clinic

I thought it would be nice to show you around Magnolia House healing centre in Rose Bay, NSW. It's a church building, as you can see from the pictures, and the congregation has moved on. The space is now a dynamic healing centre and includes music, art therapy, counseling and also where I come in: acupuncture.

Working inside a church is really is a great privilege and I love it! There is such a sense of calm respect in there. It really is a very beautiful experience. Furthermore I am doing community treatments here and the feeling behind doing that is different. It's so much more relaxed than acupuncture as a business. I am surrounded by great people and patients know that you are doing them a favour with reduced cost treatments and the effort you put in. I found it very humbling and just feels good!

Soon the main hall will develop into a communal community acupuncture space. I can imagine patients getting an acupuncture treatment while they chat to each other, someone plays their favourite instrument and at any moment there will be a cup of tea, ready. Home bake cake and the picture is perfect!!

Outside the front of the church

Here is a labyrinth that was used for the open day a while back near winter solstice

 Here's me helping paint a labyrinth beforehand!

Ross Penman the Pin Man!

Ross Penman!

I thought I would update you on this elusive and popular practitioner! I have bumped into so many Sydneysiders who have had a treatment from him, or know vaguely of him. In my instance I got treatments from him for ages which helped. After a bit of time I invited him to do a talk at UTS for the Chinese Medicine Society which took forever to organise! Anyway a few people saw him and it was great of him to give us more of an insight.

Just recently I saw on the interwebs he is doing some courses and wrote some information up about himself and what he does.

Here’s the link for those interested:

In between patients

It's been cold here in Sydney! When I say cold it means having to wear a jumper instead of just of t-shirt..! But it is officially winter and here I am with a large latte in a great bookshop called Gertrude and Alice, on Hall Street in Bondi. Basically it's a bookshop, but I think they sell more lattes to be honest with you! Great place to study, especially if you can get the couch. I found a copy of the Barefoot Doctors Manual too. This book looks great but I find is not as helpful as it looks! What do you think of it?

Check this out: $29 acupuncture treatments!!


Yes, I have checked out email vouchers and now I am one! If you would like to experience acupuncture, or if you cannot resist a bargain, grab this while you can! It won't last for long and I am judging the responses to see what it's like.

Either way $29 for acupuncture is an amazing deal!!

Have a great day,

Bondi Beach from high, Marks Park

I took a lunch break here yesterday. It's winter in Sydney but in the sun it's quite warm. I was looking out for whales (just gets better and better don't it!) Anyway I couldn't see any. Can you? Look out for the bird at the end. Just made it in!

You can book here for acupuncture!

I'm always intrigued by what's possible with new media.

I found a great site that combines all your social media stuff on one awesome page.

Check it out and tell me what you think?

Favourite picture of Bondi

I am developing my blog to be more of a personal update as well as Chinese medicine adventuring. Soon I will be bringing you some favourite things along side some of "my world" Chinese medicine insights too!

So to kick it off here is my fav pic of Bondi. I liked it so much I used it for my acupuncture website background. You may think what does this have to do with acupuncture? I will tell you about that soon.

Whenever I go to check the site this is the first part that loads up and it makes me feel great whenever I see it. The view is from north Bondi looking over the beach to the south in the distance. Right in front are a couple of people hanging out either side of the railing.

I like to think of them as a great partners chatting in the Sun and soaking up the atmosphere and having a great time before they jump in the water. I also like the dramatic silhouette they make against all the light and ocean behind them.

The reason why I used it? The couple are a great expression of yin and yang for me and the picture is filled with good times and good feelings.
