When the AAAOM first formed in 2007, their mission was clear: to support the profession through education, resources and legislative advocacy. The first years of the organization were filled with promise and hope.
The Healing Properties of Light: An Interview With Researcher Anna Cocliovo
This interview is with Anna Cocliovo, a light researcher and Acupuncturist in Arizona. During my own research in light, I came across the article she published for the American Journal of Acupuncture and sought her out as a result.
What is a Discipline in Medicine?
In my now prolonged dialogue with physicians, one question emerges with enough regularity to deserve mention and naming: what is a discipline?
Resilience is the New Longevity
Sometimes we must enter a room through one door and not another, even though they both lead into the same space. I am talking now of the recent cachet with the concept of "resilience" regarding health, chronic pain and longevity.

Why DCs Need to Understand the Principles of "Inclusive Design"
In the past few columns, I've written about the negative effects of prolonged sitting at work. I've attempted to make the point that prolonged sitting (or prolonged standing) takes a toll on workers. Now let's discuss a related issue: the concept of "inclusive design."
Green Tea Catechins Lower PSA, Other Biomarkers in Men With Localized Prostate Cancer

Flexion-Intolerant Lower Back Pain (Pt. 3): Mobilization & Soft-Tissue Treatment
What is the biggest challenge to the chiropractor in treating discogenic pain? You have to completely reframe the purpose of your manipulation. It is rarely about unlocking a stuck segment at the disc involvement level; it is not about putting a joint back in alignment.

The Zurich Dojo was scattered with toy ducks, dolls, trains, exercise balls and teddy bears during my recent pediatric workshop.
Monoculture of the Mind: Part II
Cases are built within boundaries. Such bounds may be a program, event, activity or individuals. In this instance, a medical case has boundaries that include clinical interactions that are comprised of history, signs, symptoms, diagnoses, treatment plans and treatments.
Are You Guilty of Paternalism in Your Approach to Patient Care?
Einstein is purported to have said, "When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity." In some way, everything is relative to one's point of view.
Risk Factors for Heel Problems
Heel pain and gait disability are common occurrences in adults, often the result of thinning heel pads and a lifetime of exposure to heel-strike shock. One condition experienced by many people is plantar fasciitis.
Leaving a Lasting Legacy: Donna Liewer

Find Success in Mastering the Art of Divine Right Timing
By Sharon Desjarlais, CC and Michele McGrew
Lynn McKenzie recently made more than $43,000 in less than a week. And she credits it largely to the moon. A well-known energy healer, she's been offering individual and group programs for years. Yet she never experienced this much success so quickly.
What shifted? Sure, we helped her craft a great marketing plan. But surprisingly, it had less to do with what she was doing than when she was doing it. Because we also taught Lynn how to use one of the world's most effective energetic barometers – the moon – to add impact to her marketing efforts ... without having to work harder. That's what we call the art of Divine Right Timing. You see, as human beings, we're all naturally affected by the rhythm of the energies around us. Even if we're not consciously aware of it.
We know the moon controls the tides. And since our bodies are made up of virtually the same stuff as the sea, it only makes sense that we're also affected by the moon's energy. Why do you think some people get a little crazy during the full moon? Because on a visceral level, we're still unconsciously responding to these ancient rhythms.
Now imagine what can happen when you're aware of the invisible pull the moon has on your energy – and the energy of your potential clients. Imagine how much easier it would be to connect with them and meet them where they are, so you can help them take the next step in their healing journey with you. The rhythms of the moon hold the key. And each phase is perfectly aligned to specific steps you can take to grow your practice.
The New Moon: Inspiration and Creation
The New Moon is all about new beginnings and fresh starts. Think of it as a reset button for the human psyche. Every month, at the beginning of the lunar cycle, we have an opportunity shake off the past and step into something brand new. This makes the New Moon the perfect time to dream about the future of your holistic business and to begin taking inspired action toward your goals.
Use the energy of this phase to connect your potential clients with what's possible when they make the wise decision to invest in themselves through your services. Time frame: This cycle beings on the day of the New Moon and carries over for three days.
The Waxing Moon: Growth and Expansion
The Waxing Moon helps you express the energy of growth and expansion in your practice. Which makes it a great time to step up your marketing and social-media exposure. As the moon is growing, harness that energy by stretching into something you've been avoiding or resisting. The inspired actions you take during this phase gain momentum as the moon's light increases, creating even greater opportunities for you and your clients.
Stay focused on your goals and keep taking steps forward. Even if you can't see the results of your marketing efforts right away, trust that the seeds you plant during this phase will grow if you nurture them. Time frame: This phase begins four days after the day the New Moon is born and ends four days before the Full Moon is at her peak.
The Full Moon: Power and Confidence
Right now there are clients who would gladly invest in your services if they only knew you were here. So the Full Moon is the perfect time let your light shine. Plan activities that allow you to be highly visible and accessible to your potential clients. Tap into the energy of this phase to help you take bold steps forward. When you do, you put the Law of Attraction into full swing. And all kinds of opportunities begin to open up for you and your clients.
By aligning with the light of the Full Moon, you're being asked to step outside of your comfort zone and claim your role as the powerful co-creator of your business and your life. Remember, as long as you're taking steps forward, you can't fail. Time frame: This powerful, magical energy is alight three days before and three days after the peak of the Full Moon.
The Waning Moon: Letting Go
As the moon decreases in the sky, it's time to slow down. This is not the time to push your will with brute force. Instead, look for smarter ways to accomplish your goals. Align with the energy of the diminishing moon by being willing to let go of what's no longer working for you. Remember, you can't receive new things in your business if you're clinging to old ways of thinking, doing or being. This is not about looking back with regret or shame, but identifying and releasing what needs to be changed. So take an honest look at your business to see what's not in alignment with your vision, your mission or your goals.
Also, be alert for self-sabotaging thoughts or actions during this phase. Old patterns of thought will pop up. Use the power of the Waning Moon to banish them from your subconscious mind for good. When working with clients, be willing to help them look deeply at the pain and dysfunction that has kept them stuck. And to get clear on exactly what it's costing them. By peering into the shadows, you're able to help them see what needs to be healed. Time frame: This phase begins four days after the Full Moon reaches her peak and continues until the day the New Moon is reborn in the sky.
If you're inspired to put the natural rhythms of the moon to work in your practice, all you need is a calendar that lists the New and Full Moon. (Remember, the Waxing and Waning Moons fall between these two benchmarks.) Then use the moon-phase activities we've shared here and commit to two or three for each phase. When you're in the flow of Divine Right Timing, you draw new clients to you as easily as the moon draws the tides.
