You know who you are!
I don’t know what it is lately, but my patients are making some great zingers at the practice!
Yesterday, this is what someone said:
Me: It looks like lying on your side might be uncomfortable? Let’s change your position.
SJ Patient: That’s okay, I’ll stick it out.
For all of you looking for the regular Monday post- Sorry! I’m happy to say that I had so many patients on Monday that I couldn’t post until today!
As well as this funny picture for some medical silliness, my very funny patient asked me yesterday, ” So, since acupuncture is Chinese medicine is it also like Chinese food? Do you want more acupuncture after two hours?” -Ha ha!
Laughter really is a great medicine.
It can lower blood pressure, increase vascular flow and oxygenation of the body. It can increase memory and enhance learning, alertness and creativity. It gives the diaphragm a workout while possibly lowering cortisol and adrenaline levels. Laughter has been shown to increase the effectiveness of tumor and disease-killing cells of the body. It boosts immunity, relaxes the body, decreases pain and stress and triggers the release of endorphines. Socially, it strengthens relationships and builds community.
Sounds good doesn’t it? Below is your laughter prescription for today.
