 医者父母心 :Treating each patient as same as treating our own children.

Happy Chinese New Year 🧧

I was in Lancaster County Day School for celebrating Chinese New Year. I had my practice kit with me as same as a few times in the past year. I was so thrilled that the kids were very interested in acupuncture needles in stead of cupping 😎😎😎They tried and very shucked there was no pain, no PTSD 🤣🤣🤣There were a few people had aches and pains and every single person got instant relief of them, even with one needle 😎Why? There is a blockage, and there is pain. Needles are the great tools to release those blockages 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼As a practitioner, I can feel the Qi underneath my needles and my hands 😎 and there goes the instant results 👏👏👏

Again, Chinese Medicine is all about Qi, needles just a tool to let Qi free flow. If a practitioner use the needles but without Qi concepts, that is only needle work, not acupuncture and no 95% of instant pain relief 😲😲😲Acupuncture makes pain instant relief more than 95% in my clinic 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼Because, unblock the stagnated Qi is all we need for pain relief. 2nd step is healing for chronic pain.
Bless everyone has a free flow of Qi in the new year 🧧🧧🧧2/5/2019



I joked to my patients: I will only see scoliosis patients if I put advertise for it. 🤣 These pictures are taken for 1st time treatment. I took it right after finishing insertion needles, and this is only part of the treatment. Every single of my scoliosis patients have had obvious results in these years, why? The way of thinking is different than mostly non-invasive therapy. The needles inserted at the concave side of spine, therefore to release “wrinkles “ of that side, then the spin can be naturally getting straighter. I have had patients from teens to in their 80’s, and everyone received great benefits from it, not only for pain, for straight the curves too 😎😎😎I am sharing my strategy and hopefully more people can be benefit from it. Enjoy the day  8/29/2018

Pain relief or healing    

I always tell my patients that we are on the way to healing process 😎But just by stick needles? Not enough!!! Most pain patients come for chronic pain, and their body have been changed by compensation their pain and establish another “balance “ for a long time. But this balance is very fragile and is easy to be broken, that’s why pain comes back after a certain time. This balance is not our body ‘s ultimate balance! That is what we are trying to do in my clinic. For example: knee pain. Stick needles around the knee? I often started the thigh, then ankle, last location is bullseye. There are some manipulations involved quite often, why? Break the fragile balance and push patients ‘ body back to ultimate balance. That’s another reason “ happy experience “ always involved for the pain in my clinic.    6/10/2018

* Has substantially lower incidence of adverse effects than many drugs or accepted medical procedures used for the same conditions.
* The data in support of acupuncture are as strong as for many accepted Western medical therapies.

Clinical Research (NIH) demonstrates that Acupuncture

是故圣人不治已病治未病, 不治已乱治未乱,此之谓也。夫病已成而后药之,乱已成而后治之,譬犹渴而穿井,斗而铸锥,不亦晚乎!

So the saints have not only to treat disease, but treatment of the disease before they occur. Do not wait until the chaos has happened before going to management, but management before it happens. If the disease has occurred, then go to treatment, just like you dig a well when you feel thirsty,  or you make weapons just before the war takes place. Is it not too late yet?
