In this in-person episode recorded right before the 10th Annual Biohacking Conference, I’m excited to dive deep into the innovative Wasabi Method with Dr. Adam Gavine. Dr. Gavine is a chiropractor with 17 years of experience, and we’ve been collaborating on a new, broad-spectrum technology for longevity that harnesses the power of shock wave therapy. 

We discuss the history and evolution of shock wave therapy, its initial use for breaking up kidney stones, and its current applications in treating soft tissues, enhancing blood flow, and stimulating stem cell production. The Wasabi Method goes beyond traditional uses, offering systemic benefits such as reducing pain, promoting collagen production, and even improving reproductive health. 

This episode is packed with actionable insights on how the Wasabi Method can be integrated into various health practices, making it accessible not just to medical professionals but also to massage therapists, trainers, and health coaches. Learn how this technology can help you enhance your performance, recover from injuries, and support your overall longevity.
