Japanese Acupuncturist is One of ...

Thank you for visiting my blog!
The number of page views overed 15,000!!
It is so quick.
It is alike my car's mileage (१▽१*)

I am an Acupuncturist.
You know right?

Do you know how many acupuncturists are in United States?

The answer is 21,573 at end of 2011.

Least number, 10 of acupuncturists are in North Dakota.
Most number, 6,742 of acupuncturists are in California.
Yes, I am the one of 6,742 and one of 21,573.

Now a day, many Medical Doctors (MD) are attending the classes of University of Oriental Medicine.

I guess the number is increasing more and more.

I found another 'map' 2007.
If these datas are right, what is happening in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and other mid-west states?

Did they give up?

Number of Acupuncturists in California is not increased many.
One of the reasons I know is that the California State Board exam is getting difficult more and more.

They say in general, "If you passed California State exam, you can pass anywhere else easily.

thank you for visiting my blog although there is million of blogs in the world.

How many acupuncturist is writing blog?
Do you have any data?(゚_。)?(。_゚)?

Pediatric Japanese Acupuncture

The Latest Research Reported, "Acupuncture Is Safe To Children Too".
I don't really use facial acupuncture for kids,
but still occasionally do.

The latest research was organized by University of Alberta and published in an academic journal of AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics), "Pediatrics".
The research confirmed, "Acupuncture is sage to children too".

New York Times reports,
There were researches about adverse effects of acupuncture for adults, but there were no researches for children before.
The latest research shows the chance to receive serious adverse effects by pediatric acupuncture is approximately 5 of 1,000,000 treatments.
That is roughly same as adults'.

Now a day, acupuncture is one of the most common alternative medicines in U.S.
About 3,000,000 people receive the acupuncture practices in each year.
Lately, the number of pediatric acupuncture practices is increasing.
It is assumed about 150,000 children received in 2007.

University of Alberta organized the results of adverse effects of children from 37 international surveillance data.
168 out of 1,422 children (including teenagers) had minor adverse effects.
Very rarely serious problems were occurred.
Further those cases had other reasons such as practitioners/acupuncturists did not observe safety standards.
12 cases of muscular damages were occurred from 1983 to 1989 in the same clinic in China.

Harvard Medical School performed a research for efficacy of acupuncture practices of youths in 2000.
Most of patients responded, "Acupuncture practices were helpful".
Often, needle alike tools are used for babies.

My impression:
What are you talking about, NOW?(゚_。)?(。_゚)?

Do NOT make last minutes cancellation as,
"Sorry. My son had sick!"

Please come together.
I can take care both of you.
And do NOT forget, "Terra is a physician".

Japanese Acupuncturist's Bike Repair

More than 200 of people visited my old post, "Taking Vitamin E Increases Risk of Prostate Cancer" in this one week.
<(_ _*)> Thank you.
Whatever too much is not good.
If you think you have a Prostate Cancer, see Cancer specialist ASAP.

It is very cold this week.

Was highest around 60-degree F?
(My Cincinnati friend said, there is 30-degree F though {{{{(+ω+)}}}})

Isn't this cold hurting your body?

I don't know that because this cold or not,
but my bike's both pedals are broken anyway.

When I asked my friend "how to tighten brake wires" a while ago,
she said, "Go to Beverly Hills Bike Shop".
(She is a great rider. She tripped from SF to Santa Monica by bike last year.)

O.K. now.
I decided to go there for buying, installing pedals, and tighten wires.
Right before I go there, I saw some reviews on Internet.
Few of the reviews said, "They overcharge".
Those scared me, but I believed my friend and went.

I say the man (owner or manager) is not very friendly, but still nice enough.
Mechanics are very friendly and repaired my bike right away, although he was working for another one.
A pair of pedals is only $25.
Of course you can find cheaper one in Target or Amazon, but they did not ask me labor fee.

Brake wires are tight now.
All of joints are tight too, which I did not even ask them.
I repair problems of your body,
but if your bike has a problem...
I suggest you go there (*^ー゚)b ♪,
if you are in the area.

Japanese Acupuncturist Thinks About Your Fat

Many people visited my blog from Mexico today!
☆⌒(*^-゚)v ¡Gracias!

Are you thinking about losing weight with hard exercise?

I know you gained a little bit in holiday season.
(Yap, Just Little Bit Ψ(`∀´)Ψ).

is hard exercise really effective?

Hard or vigorous exercise may be not effective method for burning body fat by exercise.

Surely, exercise is necessary to make a body "easy to lean" by increasing volume of muscle and increase metabolism.

However, the important thing is exercising with moderate intensity for burning fat effectively.

Because enough oxygen is needed for exercise transforms body fat to energy for moving muscle.

Too hard exercise disturbs your breathing, which means you cannot supply enough oxygen to cells, which your body cannot burn fat effectively.

On the other hand, too easy exercise cannot intake enough oxygen either.

what is the "moderate exercise"?

You can use heart beat rate to know moderate exercise intensity.
Mmm.... It's cool, isn't it!?

"Maximal heart rate" is the....  you can guess, right?

Most effective intensity for burning fat is about 60 to 70% of Maximal heart rate.

Calculation method:
1. Maximal heart rate is near equal to (220 - your age).
2. Check your heart rate in resting /min.
3. Substitute above for next formula.
(Maximal heart rate - heart rate in rest) x 0.6 + heart rate in rest
*If you are 40 years old, and heart rate in rest is 70/min.
220 - 40 = 180 = Maximal heart rate.
(180 - 70) x 0.6 + 70 = 136
So this 40 years old person with exercise that hard as 136 HR/min. is most effectively burning fat.

This chart indicates little bit lower than my idea
Did you understand?

If you did not, please write comment, give me an e-mail or call.


You know I do Acupuncture for weight control and cellulite reduction, right?

Your another resolution of 2012 is here now!

Obituary of Yasutaka Matsudaira

Yasutaka Matsudaira died with pulmonary emphysema at December 31st 2011.
If you are not Japanese but you know him, you must be a maniac volleyball fan.

He was the chairman of the Japan Volleyball Association.

He was the head coach of the Japan Volleyball Team at the Olympics in Mexico 1968 and in Munich 1972.

Japan team got the silver medal in Mexico and the gold medal in Munich.

This gold medal is now still the only one gold medal that Japanese team sports have had in Olympics. (Japanese baseball team got a gold medal in Los Angeles Olympic in 1984, but that was a demonstration event.)

Seiji Oko was an ace attacker in Munich Olympic.
Oko was the head coach in Suntory Sunbirds when I started to play in there.

So Matusdaira was alike my grandfather.

He was really strict and I was always nervous in front of him though.

He announced, "We get the gold medal in 8 years," right after Tokyo Olympic in 1964 and accomplished.

He started some unique trainings (e.g. walk on hands).

He started to use "Time lag attack".

Because he worked that Japan contributes spreading volleyball to countries all over the world, World Cups are done in Japan forever since 1977.

Thank you Mr. Yasutaka Matsudaira.
