Great podcast

I love the down to earth approach to discussing Chinese medicine. I really hope there is more in the future.

Such a limited view of “community acupuncture “

I appreciate what you’re doing here and love that you’re starting conversations about this beautiful medicine. However, I feel that Episode #13 is a disservice to the public and is spreading a limited view of what’s offered in community-style clinics. Not to say POCA’s philosophy or style treatments are better or worse, but what’s portrayed through this episode is that ALL community clinics do limited treatments and that is not true. There are clinics like the one in San Diego that offer individualized care, cupping, nutritional and herbal consults, face down treatments, estim and the whole nine yards at still affordable pricing of $40-60 a treatment. Just think that people should know that 🙏
