Hi, I'm Hilary Talbott, Acupressure Physician and Clinical Herbalist coming to you today from Acupuncture & Herbal Therapies. Recently, some of you have asked about electrostatic acupressure. Now, this could be interpreted a couple of different ways. Sometimes, when we do acupuncture, we use electrical stimulation. So, we'll, we'll put a needle in and then, we'll use a machine that runs current and we'll attach a, a clip to the needle and the needle works as a conductor and then we can pump electricity into the body and the are that needs it. This is really helpful for areas of pain where the fascia won't lay down flat like it's suppose to, kind of like in the idea of plantar fasciitis where the fascia's stuck up. A lot of times, I'll employ electricity in that area. With acupressure, there's really not so much you could do to create an electrical current; unless of course you were to rub your foot on the floor before you begin acupressure. It's kind of like the old childhood idea of shocking your friend by creating a current through your body and then transferring it. There's also the idea of Qi Gong of Medical Qi Gong. And so, Medical Qi Gong is used, you basically are using your own chi and, and kind of putting it into a point where it's needed in that person's body, so that they can come back into balance. But, there's no electric feeling or anything like that that happens. So, that was a quick overview of electrostatic acupressure. Thanks for tuning in.
