Decoding the Mystery of Medical Insurance Acceptance
In the constantly evolving profession of acupuncture, one of the least understood areas is medical insurance acceptance. The profession is filled with controversy surrounding this topic: Is it ethical?
Going Beyond Just Feeling Good
We all know that most patients come to us for some pain complaint: neck pain, back pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel, etc. We also all know that acupuncture is a great first-line care for these issues, as well as supporting overall health and wellness.
Pediatric Asthma: A Case Study
I have had very good success with pediatric asthma, combining acupuncture with Chinese herbal products. Treatment is given over four to eight months, twice monthly, with herbal formulas rotated every month.
Getting Paid by Medicare Is Getting a Major Adjustment
The 2015 Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) was signed into law to implement a new approach to clinician payments and replace the Sustainable Growth Rate formula.
Update from the International AIDS Conference

Treating Peripheral Neuropathy: Multi-Faceted Approach Including Laser Therapy
Peripheral neuropathy affects at least 20 million people in the United States1 and nearly 60 percent of all people with diabetes suffer from diabetic neuropathy. Many suffer from the disorder without ever identifying the cause.
Using the Lens of Chinese Medicine
One of the most common medications I see in clinical practice on a daily basis is fluoxetine or Prozac. Consequently, I hear many complaints concerning the side effects of this medication and am frequently asked by patients to help manage these side effects with acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
Natural Cancer Prevention: Pomegranate for the Prostate
In recent years, the ingestion of pure pomegranate juice (8 ounces per day) has been shown in clinical studies with human subjects to slow, and to some degree, reverse, the progression of prostate cancer – the second leading cause of cancer death in North American men.
Dysautonomia: The Medical Condition You May Already Be Treating
TCM practitioners have spent thousands of years healing patients without knowing or needing the names of their diseases as defined by allopathic medicine. We have syndrome names that are both poetic and efficient.

Iliotibial band syndrome is usually the result of repetitive knee flexion, such as in runners or cyclists. Pain may be experienced in the knee and/or the hip. The patient may express a sense of the hip dislocating, popping or snapping.
Integrative Cancer Care: Chiropractic for Chemotherapy-Induced Hiccups
Hiccups (singultus) are a frequent occurrence during cancer treatment. The cause of the hiccups may be the chemotherapy drug itself, such as Cisplatin; or the prophylactic use of corticosteroids such as Decadron, which is used to prevent nausea and/or vomiting.
Upgrade to "Parker 2.0" in Las Vegas
Continuing your education and refining your practice: two key elements of a successful chiropractic career. Parker Seminars promises both as it celebrates its 65th anniversary in Las Vegas next February, according to Parker University President, Dr. William Morgan, and seminar consultant Dr. Mark Sanna.
Power to the Patient
Against a backdrop of splintered political parties, polarizations within nations, civil unrest, and distrust of established government (such as the growing anti-Washington, D.C. sentiment) comes the not-so-surprising finding that health care authorities and practitioners (with perhaps the exception of insurers) are turning over more and more powers to the individual patient.

Pediatric Footwear: Function Over Fashion

We apologize for any inconvenience.
As part of our commitment to the massage profession, Massage Today is adding a "Massage Locator" to our website (www.massagetoday.com). This will allow the thousands of visitors we see every month to learn about massage and find the massage provider in their area.
Every provider in our database will be added to the MassageLocator at no charge. This will make our Massage Locator the most complete massage directory on the internet. As it is important that we protect your right to privacy and provide potential clients with accurate information about you, please review your address information at the top of the front page of your printed copy of this issue.
Please note that the MassageLocator will not go public until July 15, 2001. In order to make any desired modifications, we must have your changes by July 5th. Knowing that many massage therapists value their privacy, your listing will initially only include your name, city, state and zip code. It will not include your street address. This is because so many massage therapists work from their homes and would rather not have their home address available to the public.
You may modify your listing, at no charge, in one of three ways:
To make any of the above corrections to your listing, please e-mail your information to us at: .
Or fax a request to us at: 714-899-4273.

The above is what we call your "enhanced listing" on the MassageLocator. There is a small annual cost of $48 per year. (Only $4 per month!)
In addition, you can also add your enhanced listing to surrounding cities in your area, so that when a potential client searches on that city, your practice will be presented. It is important to note that enhanced listings appear before regular listings, and they display in the order in which you subscribe to this service.
You can see a sample of an enhanced listing at: www.massagetoday.com/sample
To activate your enhanced listing, please fill out all of the information on the MassageLocator form inserted into this issue. Please fax or mail it in with your payment as soon as possible, as the enhanced listings are ranked by when we receive your completed form.
