Gentle or Strong: The Hobgoblin Question of Dose
Presenter: Robert Quinn, MAcOM, DAOM
What gauge needle to use? How much stimulation to give for the best treatment results? Heavy massage or cranial sacral treatment? Teaspoon doses of tinctures or drop doses? 70 grams of granules or 170? If millions more seek treatment in AOM medicine, is it even possible in an ecologically sustainable and responsible manner to continue to supply Chinese herbs in material doses to that many people? We’ll explore these questions as a community.
