    My aunt Gracie has an African grey, a beautiful bird with a cunning mind, or so it leads us to believe.

    Unfortunately, the trouble with me is that now and then I have been known to rant and rave...

    And, for those of you who think its just a conspiracy theory and don't believe we are being squeezed out by professions such as Physiotherapists.

    Hi Charlie,

    If the people attack a government they are attacking an institution that they believe is not serving their interests. Sensibly, they fully understand that there are good politicians...

    Dear Igor,

    The problem with Western medics not being trained adequately in Chinese medicine is, with only half the story, they can develop a total misunderstanding of the system whilst developing...
  11. Oh for gods sake......what on earth is "Western medical acupuncture"???

    "Western medical acupuncture", what a complete and utter hokum term!!

    Really.....never in the history of mankind has there been such a theft of concepts, ideas and vast amounts of knowledge that...

    Firstly, well done Lisa for such an eye-opening post - you really did a fabulous job.

    I must admit to not knowing that Longbottom WAS a BAcC council member - that fact is really quite shocking...

    Just to finish this off Attilio - we know the people who created the 'spin' read this - 6 weeks and no comments to the contrary - it is true.
  14. No, No, No, its not that I don't like BAcC,...

    No, No, No, its not that I don't like BAcC, absolutely not, its simply they are the largest therefore the most to blame for our current state - limbo, disunity, and being eaten alive!

    Hi Charlie,

    Yes, ethically, I could not be part of that institution either! :)

    Protection of the term "Acupuncture": it seems to me that it always comes down to the definition of acupuncture....
  17. Attilio, I agree wholeheartedly which leads to...

    Attilio, I agree wholeheartedly which leads to the questions:

    Why does the head of BAcC seem to be unnaturally driven in that direction?

    Why isn't he pulling in the direction that TCM...
  18. Do TCM Practitioners / Acups believe they will ever be referred by the NHS?

    Why are we seemingly constantly looking for approval from the NHS?

    Do TCM Practitioners /Acupuncturists want NHS approval?
    And can a system that is so ignorant of TCM ever give approval?

    Do...

    Well that may be the case in North Carolina but I assure you its quite different here. And as your "law defines who is allowed" to use the term acupuncturist then you are protected!

    Apologies for going backwards but I just feel I need to go back over this point.

    We will never prevent "Non-Acup" practitioners from using needles - nor should we even try.
    It would be like...

    Hi Atillio,

    Yes, indeed I understand and am an ATCM member myself. (Didn't make it to AGM last week, as you noticed).
