Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has more than 5000 years history. It's a form of holistic medicine. The theory is based on the recognition of Qi. It is believed that the knowledge was coming from Huang Di and Shen Nong, hemi gods, and other sages. They discovered the meridian and acu-points inside the human body when they were in the deep meditation, and also discovered the relationship between human body and their environment. The knowledge they discovered were so profound that the TCM sages created those very symbolic words to describe their experience, such as Qi, Yin/Yang, Fire, Water, Wood, etc. Those words have their very profound and rich meanings, and it is very hard to understand by contemporary knowledge. However if you really master it, you will be able to have a new approach to reach health through balancing energy flow internally, and the harmonious between human and environment will be reached. That is also the meaning of Dzogchen, the great perfection. If you are sincerely interested in how to maintain health and seek the deep well-being, come to our office and you will have direct experience of the power of healing.


Acupuncture is a complex branch of TCM. Its practical principles and methods are not so difficult to understand:

  • Fourteen major energy channels called meridians course through the human body including the head, arms, hands, legs, feet, torso, and internal organs;
  • A subtle energy called Chi (Qi) circulates via the meridians to all parts of the body, even the most remote cells;
  • Chi is the vital force, the presence of which separates the living from the dead. Its balanced, unimpeded flow is critical to sound health;
  • Any misdirection, blockage, or other derangement of the amount, flow, or balance of Chi may result in pain, dysfunction, and ill health;
  • With acupuncture needles, or other means, the acupuncturist stimulates certain points (acupoints) along the course of the meridians. Such stimulation helps restore the normal balance and flow of Chi so organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony as intended. This sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.


Besides acupuncture, many other techniques and approaches, e.g., herb medicine, cupping, moxa, acupressure, Tui Na, massage, Gua Sha, are also used in TCM. The combinations of these techniques make TCM very powerful to treat a variety of illness and diseases. In our clinic, all these treatments are available.
