Acupuncture for Pain

The World Health Organization (WHO) in 2002 released a report entitled “Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials”. This report states that acupuncture "can be regarded as the method of choice for treating many chronically painful conditions."

According to WHO, acupuncture’s effective rate in the treatment of chronic pain is comparable with that of morphine. Acupuncture has been shown clinically to trigger the central nervous system to release pain-relieving chemicals, such as endorphins. Many neurotransmitters are also affected by acupuncture, and changes in these may affect pain transmission from irritated nerves.

In our practice, we have an approach that meets different needs. It is our goal to make the pain reduce greatly or relieve completely after one treatment.

Conditions may benefit from acupuncture:

  • Joint pain: neck pain, shoulder pain, scapular pain, elbow pain (tennis elbow/golf elbow), wrist pain (carpal tunnel syndrome), hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain
    Back pain, lower back pain, sciatica, buttock pain
  • Sports Injuries, repetitive strain injury
  • TMJ, dental pain
  • Arthritis, osteoarthritis
  • Migraine, headache, trigeminal neuralgia, peripheral neuropathy, intercostal neuralgia (shingles)
  • Heartburn, stomach pain, abdominal pain
  • Menstrual cramps/dysmenorrhea, endometriosis
  • Postoperative pain

Digestive Problems

If we take a close look at digestive disorders, we might be surprised to discover that even western medicine acknowledges that diet and stress play a large part in the development of digestive conditions and even further that diet and stress management can make a difference in those conditions. Guess we, western and eastern medicine, have something in common after all. Maybe it is time to explore some eastern wisdom.

Our approach

  • Chinese herbal medicine: One of the most beneficial method that we have found in practice, especially when it comes more complicated conditions, such as IBS, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis.
  • Acupuncture: We have noticed good results of acupuncture in common digestive disorders, such as abdominal pain, heartburn, constipation, and side-effects of chemotherapy. Additionally, we often give patients Korean hand acupuncture therapy (pellets) in the intervals of treatments.
  • Moxibustion: Most clients enjoy the warm it generates. This is great for deficient and cold type of conditions.

Allergic & Skin

Allergic constitution or irritable the physique refers to those who are prone to allergic reactions or allergic diseases, but the causes of allergies may or may not be identified. With allergic constitutions, they are more susceptible to allergic diseases, such as eczema, allergic rhinitis, urticaria, bronchial asthma, etc. They are also more likely to have allergic reactions towards metal, plan, drug/medications etc.

TCM believes that allergic constitution relates to poor congenital constitution and defensive Qi deficiency as well. Guided by treatment principle of Tonifying Defensive Qi, Clearing away Heat and Toxin, Dr. Yu uses Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture and Chinese dietary in clinic to strengthen immune system and improve allergic constitution.
