Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a system of healing that focuses on improving the overall wellbeing of the patient.

Traditional acupuncture is based on ancient Chinese theories of the flow of Qi (energy), also referred to as Chi and Xue (blood) through distinct pathways or meridians which are energy channels of the body. Acupuncture is a therapy in which fine needles are inserted into specific points (acupoints) on the body along the meridians, stimulating and enhancing the free flow of Qi, therefore regulating the harmonious energetic balance of the body. This consequently relieves pain and restores health.

The location of the points selected, the nature of the problem, the patient’s size and age, and the acupuncturist’s style are all factors that will determine how deep the needles actually go. With acupuncture treatment, the patient will feel some cramping, heaviness, distention, tingling, or electric sensation either around the needle or travelling along the energy pathway. The pain level, however, is considered mild. The number and length of treatments required for healing varies depending on many factors such as type, severity, duration of condition and nature of the complaint. In general, however, a patient should notice changes to their condition during treatment for chronic conditions, and much more for acute conditions.

As a natural form of health care, Acupuncture is effective in the drug-free treatment of a wide range of common health conditions, and it can also provides a holistic approach to the treatment of disease and illness, linking body, mind and emotion, and assists in the prevention against disease and illness, to maintain general health.

Navel acupuncture, the revolutionary modality, was discovered and created in 2000 by China’s renowned cosmetic surgeon and internationally renowned Master of I- Ching (YiJing) medicine, Professor Yong Qi. It is rooted in I-Ching philosophy, and thousands of clinical trials in China has proven its astonishing clinical efficacy. Its underpinnings and applications date back to principles that precede traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) or, for that matter, any other kind of medicine. Its advantages are being “simple, effective, practical, and extreme high efficacy”.

Navel acupuncture inserts one or few needles in navel area. It is especially convenient for pain management and relief. Acupuncturists draw inspiration from the prehistoric classic philosophical of which form the basis of I- Ching ( YiJing ), Feng Shui, Confucianism, Taoism and many other Oriental concepts.

Navel acupuncture is simple to administer, fast working and reliable. Many patients report instant benefits immediately after the first needle is inserted. This system uses very few needles and, hence, minimizes patient discomfort.

TCM maintains that, throughout our lives, we draw on a variety of internal energy resources. One type is the postnatal energy that we acquire and collect after birth. This type of energy is a bit like a battery that, unless it is reinvigorated, slowly discharges with use. It is this source that most healing modalities access.
Another type of energy is the prenatal or, the energy that we inherit, generate, and collect before our birth. After birth, the body securely stores this type of energy in the navel area. Until recently, without extraordinary measures, this type of energy has not been easy to tap.

Navel acupuncture has changed that. This innovative modality is able to access prenatal energy. In fact, this is exactly how navel acupuncture is different to other forms of acupuncture. It enables us to draw on prenatal energies. Hence, so to speak, it has given us the equivalent of a fully charged spare battery to enhance the body’s capacity to heal itself. For this, and other reasons, navel acupuncture tends to generate positive and immediate results. It has superior clinical results on various pain conditions such as migraine, neck and back pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, arthritis, shingles, sciatic, trigeminal neuruoragia etc. Navel acupuncture has proven valuable to assist many difficult conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, parkinson’s, spinal cord injury, stroke, lupus, prostate problem, sinus allergy, tinnitus, asthma, amenorrhea, depression, weight loss, psoriasis.

Helen H.Wang is becamed one of a few of Dr. Qi’s apprentice TCM practitioner in 2004, and has generated great clinic results since fully apply this unique method in clinic.
