𝗖𝗔𝗦𝗘 𝗦𝗧𝗨𝗗𝗬: “Palpitations”
By: Soon Lee LAc DAOM @plumfamacu
60 year old male complains of heart palpitations and tachycardia. He experiences palpitations about 10 times per day. Though he was recently diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, he has not yet started taking any western medications for it. He wears a heart monitor that is linked to an app on his phone; the monitor records indicate a higher incidence of atrial fibrillation while he is asleep. On average, he wakes up to urinate 5 to 6 times each night. He tends to wake up to urinate more frequently on the nights with higher incidences of atrial fibrillation.

I’m a scientist...I’m inherently skeptical...so when I first started using my pa-chi pen (piezo-electric point stimulator) I would ask patients if they didn’t mind trying it first and then following with acupuncture (just incase it didn’t work as I expected)
Turns out this thing is a GEM! It’s a tool recommended to be used for sensitive patients and/or patients who don’t tolerate / have a phobia of needles. I used to think it was secondary to acupuncture but now I realize that over time it has truly been a very effective and painless way to treat the body.
I’ve been working with a sensitive patient who has chronic neck/back pain and today this little guy surprised us in giving her 100% relief of her pain symptoms by stimulating the same classic acu-points I had been using for her condition. This surprise is becoming well, less surprising, as I gain more confidence in its application.
If you are an acupuncturist and haven’t played with this tool it’s highly recommended!
I’ll be continuing to use this tool more and more in practice in particular treating kids and those who hate needles.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a needle guy but I can’t help including tools like this when they are indicated.
Thanks @theacademyofacupuncture for showing me this in our Balance Method workshop!
