Broward Acupuncture

White Crane Healing Arts - Holistic Family Healthcare - Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Herbal Therapy, Qigong Classes, Self Cultivation Practices NutritionChinese Medicine is an integrated health care system that is over 5000 yrs. old. This holistic medicine which originated in China, is now practiced in different countries around the world including Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Europe and America. The Chinese medicine practiced at White Crane combines the ancient wisdom from the Taoist lineage traditions with contemporary knowledge of Oriental Medicine

Acupuncture is a time tested healing modality originating from the far East. Each individual will experience acupuncture on a personal level and what one feels depends on their own state of being and level of sensitivity.  It’s common to feel a sensation of warmth, tingling or traveling Qi (energy) when the needles are inserted; and many experience a profound sense of relaxation and well being or possibly increased energy.  Broward Acupuncture by White Crane Healing Arts treats the whole being which includes body, mind, emotions and spirit.

In the realm of acupuncture, the most common energetic pathways used are the 12 meridians or regular channels.  These meridians connect to the yin and yang organ systems of the body.  This system is generally emphasized in Chinese medical schools, however there are other energy channels that are equally valuable, known as the 8 extraordinary vessels.

Fundamentally, illness manifests when Qi, Blood and Fluids are either blocked, depleted or imbalanced, which diminishes its healthy coherence to the point of dysfunction or eventually illness. Acupuncture can reorganize this dynamic by opening, closing or harmonizing the flows within the rivers and streams (channels).

Fujifilm’s new X-T2 camera has 24 megapixels, 4K video, and great controls

First things first: though they look nearly identical, the X-T2 is slightly larger than its predecessor. You’d be hard pressed to tell the difference without holding both cameras simultaneously, but it’s worth noting. The most important change to the X-T2 is in the sensor. Fujifilm has brought over the 24.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS III that debuted in the X-Pro 2, adding eight megapixels on top of the 16 that the X-T1 offered. It’s not a huge leap, but makes a very noticeable difference in terms of image detail. And as my colleague Sam Byford mentioned in his review of the X-Pro 2, those 24 megapixels really allow the company’s lineup of lenses to shine.
