Chinese Medicine & Blood

It’s all about the blood! 

I know, sounds like a horror film right?  Well, the truth is, blood makes up most of our internal body, so if it’s out of whack you will know!  For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has focused much of it’s efforts on balancing the blood, especially for the ladies.  While men are usually lacking Qi (vital oxygen) balance, women tend to be deficient in blood health.  Some of the steps that a TCM practitioner will take to normalize blood is to nourish, move, cool and/or warm.  So if you have a symptom or complaint resulting from a blood disharmony, there isn’t just one approach.  I will look at the symptoms, but also at the root of why these symptoms are taking form.  Each condition may have up to five different approaches to remedy the complaint.  I look at the body as a whole, so while working on one issue, another part of the body may also improve.  The typical modalities used to influence blood health are acupuncture, Chinese Herbs and moxibustion.

Portland-based acupuncturist and owner of Maxxed Out Acupuncture knows the magic of the needle. The teeny, tiny needle. The needle he once feared. Although you will not find him swaddled in linen, om-ing on a meditation cushion, you will find him chewing his food, enjoying a morning minus an iPhone and taking a mindful breath.

Having felt and lived the need for a new way of doing life, Cody helps his patients do the same. He specializes in assisting the people who think acupuncture is only for the kombucha brewing, chicken rearing, kale growing folk. Not true. It’s for anybody who has not taken a deep breath since ‘87, who wakes up to email for breakfast and who has a self-regenerating to-do list.

CODY PAYS ATTENTION TO THE SMALLEST OF DETAILS TO CURATE CUSTOMIZED TREATMENT PROTOCOLS TO ADDRESS THE AILMENTS THAT ARE SUCKING THE LIFE OUT OF YOUR LIFE.
