OHCO-Flow moisturizes and lubricates the circulatory system at a deep level particularly above the waist. It is identical to OHCO-Motion with the addition of one ingredient that moves energy in the upper body and relieves tension above the waist. This is a better choice for stagnation in the neck & shoulders, jaw, fingers, and elbows.
You play hard, sometimes you hurt, and you definitely never want to admit it. There is a Chinese herbal formula that can put you right back on your board or on the trail. It is not a formula that will take the place of a trip to the emergency room but it will eliminate pain from bangs, bumps, and bruises.
Stiffness, soreness, and potential for injury are manifestations of stagnant energy. As a formula that nourishes the blood, OHCO-Flow supports the body's natural ability to heal itself and to work in a more efficient way. This blood is not the red stuff that circulates through your body. It is the substance that moves when your chi is flowing freely. Keeping movement smooth and unobstructed has helped many athletes with on-going or sudden onset of aches and pain.
For example, you work out three times a week. Today you are going to put a little more weight on the machine. Two caps of OHCO-Flow before your workout will keep those muscles above the waist from screaming in pain.
You know you're in good shape. You have several sports that you do regularly but dad wants to take you out on the golf course and you haven't swung a club since junior high. Two caps of OHCO-Flow before an activity that will exercise different muscle groups will keep you from being stiff in the upper body after the game.
Your best friend is moving again. It's another day of heavy lifting and on your day off, no less. Two OHCO-Flow caps will make it easier to still enjoy the evening without being sore.
This Chinese herbal formula is excellent at promoting the body's natural mobility. If you use OHCO-Flow before a strenuous activity when your energy is flowing freely, you will take much less of the herbs. It is much easier to keep the momentum moving in a positive direction. If you wait until stagnation has occurred, it will take more herbs to bring about a change. By nourishing the circulatory system on a functional level rather than simply masking pain symptoms, you can ease discomfort and restore locomotion in a different way than with analgesics.
Many people like to push themselves physically in a yang or hard style. This can be seen and understood in some very tangible ways. When people exercise and do rigorous sports, they hurt. When you suffer a traumatic injury, you get stiff. There is a way to maintain flexibility and movement in a yin style and that is by keeping the blood and chi moving. Relationship is an ever-present theme in Oriental medicine. Sometimes we just need to get out of the way (remove obstructions that may be mental, emotional, or physical) to allow movement.
For those instances where the stiffness and soreness continue, following the Basic Way will be successful. Once a disease process has time to build up in the body, taking OHCO-Flow over a period of time might be necessary to change momentum. For this reason, regular and consistent doses may be the choice. Experiment with the formula to discover the far-reaching benefits from using OHCO-Flow.

OHCO's herbal products and the proprietary technology involved were researched and developed by acupuncturist Donn Hayes. His experience and training in classical Chinese herbology provided the foundation for Cold Snap, Stomach Chi, OHCO-Motion, OHCO-Flow, Eye-Ching and Chi'll Out. His initial study of Oriental Medicine began with an apprenticeship in the Oriental communities of Seattle and Vancouver and continues thirty years later through his private practice and research. He holds a Diplomate of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs through the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists.
Donn is a truly gifted practitioner who reached beyond the traditional and made a revolutionary contribution to health care reform. He will continue to be active in the development of several new formulas already in the works. He is eager to get his important message before the public about restoring and nourishing the chi. Donn is an experienced speaker and is available to talk to your group on Eastern philosophy, acupuncture, and herbs. He is an avid Macintosh user and spearheads the computer operations at OHCO.
Hannah Hayes earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Hofstra University and attained a Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Antioch University. After ten years of teaching, she moved on to run her own vegetarian restaurant and to manage an extremely popular local health food store. In the mid-eighties, Hannah started working with Donn's clients to educate them about the principles of Oriental Medicine. During this time, Hannah observed that many patients began requesting that their custom formulas be made available to friends and families.
After studying the safety and efficacy of the formulas in the clinical setting, Hannah created OHCO to bring these wonderful products into the retail marketplace. Her vision and management style has made OHCO into a successful and well-respected company. In addition to being the CEO and President of OHCO, Hannah writes a syndicated bi-weekly opinion column and hopes to soon publish a layperson's guide to Oriental Medicine.
