Oriental medicine was not developed in a laboratory. It does not advance through double-blind controlled studies, nor does it respond well to petri dish experimentation. Our medicine did not come from the statistical regression of randomized cohorts, but from the observation and treatment of individuals in their particular environment. It grows out of an embodied sense of understanding how life moves, unfolds, develops and declines. Medicine comes from continuous, thoughtful practice of what we do in clinic, and how we approach that work. The practice of medicine is more — much more — than simply treating illness. It is more than acquiring skills and techniques. And it is more than memorizing the experiences of others. It takes a certain kind of eye, an inquiring mind and relentlessly inquisitive heart. Qiological is an opportunity to deepen our practice with conversations that go deep into acupuncture, herbal medicine, cultivation practices, and the practice of having a practice. It’s an opportunity to sit in the company of others with similar interests, but perhaps very different minds. Through these dialogues perhaps we can better understand our craft.

Customer Reviews

So glad to finally have this!

Our profession has been lacking a solid and consistent podcast for so long! I love listening to this on my commute, it sure does make the time fly. Sometimes I have to finish the show in my driveway! I love the ease and openness of sharing, great variety of topics, and of course, I am partial to anything classical! Keep it up, please!

Two thumbs up for Michael Max and this podcast!

I’ve just listened to my second podcast in this series and feel compelled to commend Michael on his work, his style, and his way of being in conversation with the guests. I love how he ask the questions that are going through my mind and how he navigates between talking to new and experienced practitioners alike. I’m so glad that a new colleague acquaintance told me about Qiological. It’s a podcast that makes me proud of being an acupuncturist. It is imminently listenable, educational and motivational. Thank you, Michael!

Amazing Resource!!

This is by far my favorite Podcast! Michael is so great at not only bringing on amazing guest speakers but also asking the right questions. More often than not, soon after I need clarification, Michael gets clarification from the guest. I always walk away with something that I feel I can use. You really need this resource!
