70: How to Use Chinese Medicine and Your Intuition for Healing with Dr. Christopher Motley

How much do you know about Chinese medicine? 


It’s something that has been practiced for a long time and has a lot of naturopathic aspects. One aspect is how connected everything in your body truly is. You may think the symptoms you are experiencing are totally random, but in reality, they can all be traced back to a root cause.


In this episode of The Dr. Kinney Show, I sat down with Dr. Christopher Motley to talk about Chinese medicine, the power of your intuition, listening to what your symptoms are trying to tell you, and finding the right health care provider. 


Dr. Christopher Motley holds a Doctorate in Chiropractic from Logan University and has been in full-time practice for over 15 years. He has two office locations: one located in the heart of Nashville and the other in Franklin, Tennessee. He works with in-person patients and virtual patient consults from around the world, focusing on kinesiology, bio-feedback therapy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques and treatment paths of acupuncture, bodywork, supplementation, surgery, rehab, or medications.


Dr. Motley sees patients of all ages ranging from 1 day old to 96 years of age. Helping individuals with Lyme disease, liver methylation, parasites, SIBO, viral infection, hormones, fertility, and emotions related to these conditions is a passion of his, as well as educating both online and in person. He is certified in acupuncture, applied kinesiology, clinical kinesiology, and holistic methylation therapy.


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 


  • How everything in your body is connected
  • Why your symptoms aren’t always a bad thing
  • The adaptations your body creates and what they signal
  • Why your intuition about your body is so important
  • The importance of finding a doctor you can trust
  • The future of medicine and treatment options


I love that Dr. Motley focuses on listening to his patients to understand what it is they really need. He understands the importance of encouraging his patients to listen to their innate intelligence when it comes to their health to get to the root cause. 


This episode was packed with tons of information about listening to your body and trusting your instincts.  Dr. Motley is truly an expert in this area, and if you are interested in working with him, check out his website or follow him on Instagram to learn more about Chinese medicine and natural healing methods.
