Langara Acupuncture Clinic - Sunny Lian Acupuncturist
Acupuncture is a safe, effective treatment, without side effects. It adjusts the natural balance system of the body. Acupuncture is used to prevent and heal illness, and improve general well-being. Sunny's very high success rate and fast healing results come from her unique needling techniques. Her healing modality is highly effective and incorporates cupping, bleeding therapy, and acupressure massage, in addition to common and hot needle acupuncture. **COMMON NEEDLE ACUPUNCTURE** Hair-thin, common needles are inserted into specific points along the meridians, the energy channels of the body. The gentle stimulation of these fine needles triggers the body's natural healing responses. These needles are widely used to: Increase blood circulation, Balance hormones, Relax muscles, Strengthen the immune system, Increase energy, Imporve organ function, Assist the body to regulate and heal itself **HOT NEEDLE ACUPUNCTURE** Hot needle acupuncture originated in China approximately 3,000 years ago, and was originally used to treat arthritis. The world renowned Dr. Puren developed and widely used this treatment throughout his more than 60 years of acupuncture practice. The hot needle technique has been proven to be highly successful in treating arthritis, tendonitis, sports injuries, scar tissues, migraines, headaches, and numbness, as well as other difficult diseases and conditions, such as stroke. Hot needle therapy is a safe, fast and effective healing art. It stimulates the body to create an enormous 'young' energy, and releases natural chemicals inside the body to irrigate, nourish and heal the tissues, and improve the targeted organ's functions. **BLEEDING THERAPY** Bleeding therapy directly unblocks the energy river of the body. It is applied on specific points to remove toxins, and to release pain, swelling or itchiness from the area, allowing the body to balance itself and recovery quickly. **ACUPRESSURE THERAPY** This is a Chinese medical massage therapy which is comprised of acupuncture points and energy channelling to promote healthy 'Qi' flow and healthy organ function in order to prevent and cure diseases. **CUPPING** A simple and traditional natural healing technique used to balance the body, in order to promote healing. The suction coaxes blood and fluids to the treated area which, in turn, releases tight or painful muscles. Cups are usually left on between 5 and 10 minutes. After cupping, the skin may be temporarily reddened, raised, or bruised, which is part of the healing process. However, it is not painful and usually only lasts up to 1 week.
Metrotown Naturopathic and Acupuncture / Dr. Hamid Tajbakhsh ND
Naturopathic medicine allows for the widest scope possible for a primary health care provider and is used to provide relief from disease using a natural approach rather than a drug-based approach. Prior to treatment, the doctor will conduct a comprehensive health interview to record pertinent information, perform any needed physical examinations, and recommend any necessary labs such as hormone testing. Your naturopathic treatments may include the following modalities: **Nutritional Optimization** Includes diet advice and any needed natural health supplementation plans **Support for vegetarian/vegan lifestyle** if required-Food Allergy (IgG/IgE) **Testing-Nutrigenomic Testing** (comprehensive salivary genetic test for 45 genetic markers) **Botanical Medicine** Using completely vegan herbal extracts to naturally provide the body with certain actions needed to overcome dis-ease **Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture** Often, imbalances in the flow of blood and energy (Qi) along with deficiencies in the cooling or heating system of our body can lead to disease. Acupuncture along with carefully selected vegan friendly Chinese herbal formulas can be used to correct these imbalances. In addition to symptom differentiation. A misconception about acupuncture is that it is a painful therapy but nothing could be further from the truth. Dr. Hamid Tajbakhsh, ND uses a method of acupuncture he has named AKiMCA. This stands for Applied Kinesiology Mediated Constitutional Acupuncture which allows for gentle insertion of a minimal amount of needles to bring upon maximal healing response. Dr. Hamid uses manual muscle testing techniques to locate exact areas of excess and deficiency which allows him to efficiently and effectively address multiple concerns at once thereby treating the actual cause of his patients’ concerns. Bowen therapy was first founded by Tom Bowen in Australia during the 1960s. This therapy uses non-invasive gentle soft-tissue maneuvers which send signals to the central nervous system causing re-structuring of muscles, tendons, and bones. This works to break repetitive pain cycles and eliminate chronic pain patterns! Bowen therapy also increases blood flow and lymphatic drainage to the tissues and even organs which help to rejuvenate the body and aid in the self healing mechanisms of the body.
