Physician, Heal Thyself

I am very blessed to do what I do for a living – trading health for bread.

I am even more blessed that I can do what I do on myself.  I am currently nursing my shoulder which seems to pain at the most odd times – like shaking off my toothbrush.  Alas, even the jolt from a run is quite annoying.

So I’ve been pinning myself, burning moxa and cupping it daily.  Shoulders are tricky – right up there with hips.  I find it interesting that shoulders mirror hips according to image- and channel-theory.  It’s a pain the ass to try and treat my hip (pun intended), so I’ve just been using the ol’ maxim: ‘Where there is pain, there is a point.’

Unlike Skip, I didn’t start my Chinese medicine studies to keep my body in check because of the active lifestyle I lead, but it’s a wonderful benefit just the same.  Blessed, this one will heal himself.
