Ep. #41 – Terry Fox – Botox® or Aesthetic Acupuncture?

Terry Fox, L.Ac

Botox® or Aesthetic Acupuncture?

I’m Terry Fox, host of The Get Foxy Show and founder of Artesian Spring Oriental Medicine.

In 1997, my mom was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Because of this, I became a Massage Therapist and ultimately an Acupuncturist / Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner.

I found I enjoyed helping other women as much as I did my own mom.

When I was 10, I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy – a condition where one side of the face becomes paralyzed. So, I totally relate to being unhappy with what you see in the mirror. And that’s why I love offering Aesthetic and Facial Acupuncture to my patients.  Not only do I help them get healthier, I help them love that person reflected in their mirror.

For today’s episode, I decided that I would alert you all to the fact that Allergan, the maker of Botox®, is ramping up it’s vast marketing machine to target you and your younger friends. They want you hooked on their toxic products just like the tobacco companies want young people to smoke.

But there’s a healthy alternative that works with your body’s innate capacity to heal and rejuvenate itself – Aesthetic/Cosmetic/Facial Acupuncture.

Ideas covered in this episode:

  • What Botox® is and how it works
  • How wrinkles and lines are formed
  • The sad case of Belinda Hale
  • How does Botox® effect you in the longterm
  • The physical and mental/emotional side effects of Botox

Ep. #35 – Terry Fox – Find a Qualified Acupuncturist

Terry Fox, L.Ac

Find a Qualified Acupuncturist

Licensed Acupuncturist, Licensed Massage Therapist, and Aesthetic Acupuncture Specialist, Terry Fox, is Northern Colorado’s leading expert in helping Women feel better and look younger through Aesthetic and Facial Acupuncture. Today he shares with us how to find a qualified Acupuncturist.

When he was 17, Terry’s mother was diagnosed with a chronic and painful autoimmune disease – fibromyalgia. Inspired to relieve her pain, Terry was led to the Utah College of Massage Therapy. Once graduated, he helped create the first hospital-based Massage Therapy program in the state of Wyoming. Four years after, Terry progressed into Acupuncture. In only three years, he earned his Master’s Degree from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 2006, he founded Artesian Spring Oriental Medicine in Fort Collins, Colorado. Terry also has served as Secretary for the Acupuncture Association of Colorado, and was voted Best Acupuncturist 2015 and 2016 according to The Experience Pros radio show.

Many of Terry’s teachers are internationally known masters of Cosmetic Acupuncture and Classical Chinese Medicine – Ron Rosen, Denise Ellinger, Martha Lucas, Wudang Chen, Dr. Ping Zhang, and Mary Elizabeth Wakefield. Terry’s focus is helping women feel and look their natural best through Aesthetic Acupuncture. And because of this he also started his podcast – The Get Foxy Show, where he talks with experts in Holistic Health, Natural Beauty, and Passionate Living.

I lead and inspire women to reconnect with their own innate healing capacity, return to their authentic self, and revive their radiant joy for living. I believe each patient is a precious child of God and should be treated accordingly. I’m passionate about helping women manifest their own inherent beauty by fostering their health and wellbeing. I’ve been described as “knowledgeable, caring, and professional,” and I strive continually to live up to that description.

Terry doesn’t just treat “skin deep,” he sees deeper and works on a holistic level. Women come to him for his expertise. They trust him because of his gentle nature and keen intuition. But, they love him because his heart is wholly connected to their betterment.

Steps to find a Qualified Acupuncturist

Start with word of mouth. Ask people you trust if they’ve seen someone that’s gotten them results.

If no one you know can recommend someone, then searching online is your next best bet.

Before you start talking to potential Acupuncturists, determine your intentions and goals regarding the treatment. Then convey that information and get a feel for whether the acupuncturist will support your goals.

Ask potential Acupuncturists about what you can expect from a session, their training, general experience, and their specific experience treating your condition.

As with any health care provider, an Acupuncturist should be able to answer these questions to your satisfaction. But please follow your gut feelings. In addition to the specific answers you get from your questions, consider your instincts. Did you feel comfortable about your interaction with this Acupuncturist? Did anything about them rub you the wrong way? Always, always listen to your gut. When something puts you off about the practitioner, don’t work with them.

If your state requires licensing, make sure the Acupuncturist is properly licensed. If licensing isn’t required, look for someone certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (Dipl. O.M.) or Diplomate of Acupuncture (Dipl. Ac.).

  • What’s this Qi stuff?
