TAVNS Clinical Data Not a Panacea: Li.Ma and St.Gi edition

In the spirit of “there’s no bad data only bad hypotheses” I share this data.  This is from a long time patient (>3 years) who comes monthly for cosmetic acupuncture. I’ve tried TAVNS on her a few times and the results show in increase in her sympathetic/parasympathetic balance to a dramatic degree.  Not once, not…

Clinical Case, Migraine, HRV and hypersensitivity: An.St edition

Sigh.  The vagaries of HRV, the challenge and the opportunity… This is the story of a young woman (30 ish) with severe migraines, at least once per week.  Initial treatment might have caused a migraine so I dialed back the number of needles drastically to a key four. (3K, 7H, 4Sp, 6PC).  She still had…

Hypervigilance and Acupuncture/HRV

This data is from a new patient who has autonomic hypervigilance, which manifests as anxiety and exaggerated sympathetic activity.  Her stress levels do not appear to be excessively high and, so far, have responded positively to acupuncture.  We’ll keep an eye on her to see how she progresses.

Heart Rate Variability as a Biomarker for Resilience and Prevention: Data

In the latest issue of Medical Acupuncture they highlighted the importance of Acupuncture as a preventative and a way to optimize health.  I’m preparing a journal article to show that HRV improves, stress decreases in migraineurs who have been successfully treated.  This data is over patient visits for at least a year.  I tried to…

Stress reduction Na.Am Edition: Tales from the Clinic

This is data from a patient who I’ve treated in the past.  She always has a profound sense of calm and relaxation from treatment. So the data shows a decrease in stress during treatment and some reduction over time.  If you also notice, she has a pronounced increase in her stress levels during needling.  This…

TAVNS and Acupuncture in the Clinic: J.L. and C.H. edition

After I used TAVNS on these patients in the same day, I realized they had some things in common. Both very athletic and hard workers.  One patient comes in for hot flashes/Pms, the other anxiety.  Both of them had a pronounced drop in their LF/HF with the TAVNS.  Is it reproducible?  We will see.  I’m…
