Acupuncture is not just about stabbing the skin with needles, hoping some miracle will happen. Any 7-year-old can do that. Unfortunately, that’s how acupuncture is performed in many acupuncture clinics – just put some needles on several points as written in the textbook.
To practice acupuncture is to grasp the human body, not just its anatomy and physiology but also its interaction with nature and the environment, and to understand how its homeostasis is maintained and changed. Based on this understanding, an acupuncturist tries to control the flow of energy and circulation using needles or other means. It’s a skill that takes one’s lifetime to master. That’s why the outcome of acupuncture treatments vary drastically depending on who gives the acupuncture treatment.
Chang’s Acupuncture Style
There are many different styles of acupuncture. Experienced acupuncturists employ different styles and techniques suitable for the conditions of an individual patient. Chang’s acupuncture style combines qi gong energy moving techniques with acupuncture manipulation resulting in more effective and faster healing. Patients feel deep relaxation during the treatment due to the fact that his/her energy begins to flow smoothly. In almost all illnesses including pain syndromes, physical disorders or emotional conditions, we observe blockage of energy and disrupted blood circulation, which manifest as specific symptoms and makes recovery difficult.
Originally trained in conventional medicine and science, Mr. Chang’s knowledge in anatomy and physiology enables him to select points that are less painful and more effective to stimulate the affected nerves. Also as a veteran qi gong practitioner, we know how to harmonize and balance the energy to maximize the efficiency of the treatment.
Chang’s Acupuncture & Herbs is the only clinic where you can receive magnetic acupuncture. Magnetic property is said to have many benefits for human health. Some researchers believe that magnets can help speed up the healing process, improve circulation, and relieve pain. Magnetized needles reduce the inflammation and speed up the regeneration of soft tissue injuries.
At Chang’s Acupuncture & Herbs, our first treatment goal is to balance and promote the smooth flow of energy. (That’s why another name for Chang’s acupuncture style is called “Qi Flow Acupuncture”.) For that purpose, various techniques are used along with acupuncture – moxibustion, cupping, qi gong exercise, manual therapy, herbs and even electric stimulation and laser therapy.
Pattern Differentiation & Diagnosis
In Oriental Medicine, there’s a famous classical statement that says “same treatment for different illnesses, different treatments for same illness” – meaning seemingly different symptoms may have the identical underlying cause or similar symptoms may have different causes. The process of identifying the root or underlying cause is called “pattern differentiation”. As a “wholistic” or “holistic” medical practice, it’s important for an oriental medicine practitioner not just to look at the symptoms and superficial manifestations, but to observe the inner workings and connections of underlying systems.
At Chang’s Acupuncture & Herbs, we try to look at the whole person and understand our patient before we start the treatment. We try to figure out the underlying cause of the disorder and correct the condition. That’s why we pride ourselves for the high success rate of our treatment protocols and our patients are very happy with our work.
At our clinic, we try to provide a relaxing, zen-like environment for our patients. You will feel very relaxed and comfortable when you come in for the first time. Getting healthy while feeling good – isn’t that what a good healthcare practice should be? Better, faster result with lower cost minus the side effects and the danger of addiction – that’s what we are trying to achieve.
