NAME THAT POINT! Linda Lauper, DVM, CVA, CHP,CTP
You own a thriving holistic feline practice. Cats are your thing! Your client base is an eclectic conglomeration of wonderful cat-crazy people. One of them is a bright, young physics and pre-med student at UC San Diego, a school renown for brilliant “thinking outside the box” in the medical field. She comes to you with a great idea and needs your input as the “TCVM consultant”. She thinks it would be fantastic to design a “calming cap” for kitties to wear before their appointments, or before any potentially stressful situation. The “kitty calming cap” will, of course, be linked to an app on your iPhone to allow monitoring of stress levels, which in turn links up to your FitBit so you can graph heartrate changes in kitty. Because she knows you are a certified, experienced acupuncturist, she asks you for help in placing the combination of laser diodes and electromagnetic field generators in the “kitty calming cap”. There are 3 points that you recommend. The first location is directly behind the ear base and is also known as “The House of Shen” and “Peaceful Spirit” (a total of 2 points on the miracle kitty calming cap). The second location is on the midline at the top of the head on a line between the rostral rim of the 2 ear bases. It is also known as GV 24. What are these 2 magical calming points (also great for addressing OCD, seizures and hives)? (p.s. you invest in this new device because it’s sure to make you a million).
