  • Biofeedback and depression: Treating the blues with body-mind therapies


    When you’re stressed out or concentrating hard, your body responds in certain ways that you may not even be aware of: your stomach muscles tighten, you hold your breath and you blink less often. Your palms become sweaty, your heart rate increases and you clench your teeth. Realizing that such bodily reactions are occurring, and that you can learn to control them, is the basis of biofeedback therapy.
    Biofeedback is an alternative therapy that can help people suffering from all sorts of health issues including high blood pressure, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), chronic pain, migraine headaches and urinary incontinence. Particular benefits are seen with biofeedback and depression, when bodily signals are used to help patients relax and elevate mood levels.

    On December 15, Brendan Mattson, L.Ac., becomes the Graduate Program Dean and we say a fond farewell to Frank Scott, L.Ac., who has served, mentored, and cared for the Chicago campus since its inception.

    We know that he will be there for us whenever we need his input and guidance. Here is what is inscribed on a plaque presented to Frank by the college President at the Pacific Symposium: 

    “The community of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine wishes to express its greatest appreciation for your 15 years of dedication to high academic standards and teaching excellence. Through your thoughtful consideration of incalculable academic issues, you have been a valued advisor to the President.

    Because of your experience, you have supported five Campus Directors. As Pacific College’s Chicago Academic Dean and as a teacher, you have been an inspiration to students and fellow faculty members.

    Those of us who have worked with you are most privileged to have done so and thank you for your commitment to our shared professional path. We wish for you the health and happiness that you have worked to bring to others.”

  • Calm an Irritated Vagus Nerve Using the Gall Bladder Divergent Channel

    Katy visited our center with a seemingly disparate collection of symptoms that were causing her distress. She described a pattern that was episodic in nature and involved abdominal bloating, belching, acid reflux, loose stools, shallow breathing, and palpitations.

    Bio-medically, I felt as if her pattern could be explained by looking closely at the vagus nerve.
