As an individual that strives to achieve the ultimate happiness and the ending of my own everyday incessant distress that is part of life. It is my aspiration to help myself and others to realize their potential to be truly healthy and happy in body, mind, and spirit regardless of whatever limitations that we might place on ourselves. One of the greatest rewards and blessings that I can ever receive is by being in the right occupation as an Acupuncturist. Where I can possibility help make a difference in peoples lives and see the improvements in their well-being.
As an acupuncturist, I have successfully helped many individuals with various health conditions. For the treatment of pain, I specialize in utilizing an ancient meridian system called the (Jing Jin) Tendino-Muscular meridian system to help patients with pain management. This meridian system is one of the most effective ways to treat pain with acupuncture and it’s greatly underappreciated in the modern acupuncture practice, as the general public won’t come across many acupuncturists who utilize this system. I also incorporate other eastern traditional therapeutic techniques, depending on what health condition that needs to be address.
Additional eastern medicine techniques that is incorporated with acupuncture:
The practice may date as far back as 3000 B.C., helping millions of people over many years, hosting a variety of health benefits with minimal to no side effects. Cupping can reduce pain by relaxing tense muscles and easing stiffness associated with pain. Some athletes have been known to use cupping to naturally improve athletic performances and recovery time from training. Not only can cupping therapy can help with pain, but it can also promote relaxation, boost skin health, improve digestion and helps to treat respiratory conditions, colds, and flus.
Do not let the name scare you, a few drops of blood are let out with a small lancet needle and it can be just as painless as acupuncture itself. Bloodletting was common throughout ancient cultures and not unique to the West until it faded away when conventional medicine came into scene in the 19th century. This therapeutic technique can stimulate the immune system and help improve blood circulation in the body. From my own personal experience as a Traditional Medicine Chinese Doctor, bloodletting is a therapy that is just as good, if not even better than acupuncture when it comes to treating pain and a variety of health conditions.
Gua Sha is a remarkably similar to its western counterpart the Graston Technique. A smooth-edge instrument is used to apply a stroking motion with moderate pressure on certain areas of the body, mostly on the back and neck to cause redness or bruising, thereby producing an anti-inflammatory response effect that carries through several days after treatment. The ancient therapy helps to break up any stagnation and helps to move oxygen and promote the blood flow to the injured area thereby relieving pain to the local and distal areas in the long-term. Not only is gua sha commonly used to treat pain, but it also has an immune protective effect which can be utilized to address other conditions such as asthma, cold and flu.
