My left shoulder feels terrific! The tension is notably improved, and the burning between my shoulder blades has not returned. -MD

Acupuncture is one of the earliest forms of medicine, having been used to address health and wellness for over 5,000 years. Acupuncture is only one of the five components that make up what is referred to as Oriental Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Traditional Oriental Medicine, Eastern Medicine, or Asian Medicine. In addition to acupuncture, Oriental Medicine incorporates Chinese herbs, nutrition, exercise (i.e., Tai Chi, Qi Gong), and bodywork (Tui Na, massage). This medicine encourages patients to incorporate lifestyle changes to improve health and overall wellness. Whether you are new to acupuncture, or have experienced acupuncture previously and want to continue receiving benefits from it, I look forward to seeing you at my new office in Plano.

Under the “Services Available” tab you will find a list of common diseases, disorders, and symptoms that acupuncture can treat safely and effectively. Acupuncture is endorsed by the National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization.

I have taken my new found health and happiness and have simply ran with it. I have been doing things that for some time I didn’t believe I would ever do again. I have been able to play sports at a level that had previously been impossible due to pain and my overall unhealthy lifestyle. -JS

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of five components that are known as Traditional Oriental Medicine (TOM) or Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The term “acupuncturist” is the most commonly used title for an Oriental Medicine Practitioner or Oriental Medicine Doctor. Through the use of fine, sterile, disposable needles inserted on specific acupuncture points, acupuncture encourages the body to promote natural healing by activating the body’s “Qi” (vital energy, or life force) thus enhancing recuperative power, immunity, and physical and emotional health, and improving overall function and well-being.

The other components of TCM include Chinese herbal medicine, constitutional nutrition, exercise such as Tai Chi and Qi Gong, and energetics such as bodywork (Tui Na). TCM is the second largest health care system in the world, is over 2,500 years old, and is based on the view that a person is a complete energy system which includes the body, mind, and spirit. Unlike allopathic medicine which attempts to isolate and separate the disease from the person, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) emphasizes a holistic approach that treats the whole person.

Many, many, many thanks to you for your kind and in depth healing to my body. I benefited a lot and will do my best to follow what you have taught me back in Hong Kong. Your work is such a miracle. I shall plan to come back to receive your advice and treatment as often as I can. -EA
