• Having been an acupuncturist for over twenty years, I am always surprised and delighted to see the effects produced by needle insertion (single use) or even by using a soft laser.
  • In the past, a mother of two young children who had been experiencing unpleasant symptoms came in for a consultation. We discovered she had an energy imbalance and we were able to restore it. Recently, she came back to see me so I could help her 3 year old son who suffered from recurring illnesses such as the flu, tonsillitis, gastroenteritis, etc.
  • When using Chinese medicine we must always establish an energy diagnosis with the symptoms reported by the client.
  • In this example, the acupuncturist must be able to tell the difference between the stagnation of the liver’s energy, an excessive fire of the liver, lack in energy emanating from the spleen-pancreas complex and a lung or kidney energy depletion. It would seem that the child’s immune system was low; he lacked energy, slept a lot and was cranky upon wakening. I suggested we use a mild laser to treat his deficient immune system. In general, 4 sessions will be sufficient to realign children’s energy as they become stronger to fight viruses. However in this case, it took a series of 7 treatments in order for him to get back on his feet. He came in for a few more times that year however 2 years later, he doesn’t need to use antibiotics although he may catch a cold every now and then.
  • Everyone is happy, including the doctor.
