Nature's Way Holistic Health
The Zen shiatsu we offer is like a massage version of acupuncture, without the needles. The oils and stroking movements of massage are replaced by gentle stretching and deep pressure covering both broad areas and specific points along defined lines or meridians. These movements promote free flow of Chi or energy. A skilled therapist works with the body’s signals and adjusts a treatment accordingly. The treatment leaves one feeling profoundly relaxed, in “balance” and with less tightness and pain.

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.
Andre Shih TCM & Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture don’t work like prescription drugs or health supplements. The fundamental idea of our medicine is to correct the imbalance and restore the basic functions of your body, such as sleeping, eating, drinking, defecation, urination, etc. These are the foundation of your health. When your body is able to function at a healthy level, your digestive system is able to produce the enzymes that transform the food you eat into nutrients and send it to where it’s needed, your endocrine system is able to produce the right amount of hormones that your body needs, your immune system is able to distinguish between your own cells from foreign cells, your cardiovascular system is able to function within a normal pressure, your nervous system is able to transmit the electric signals normally, and your body is able to metabolize normally – replacing dying cells with new cells. This is the reason that we are able to help many people with various conditions.
China Acupuncture & Herbal Clinic - Dr. Simon Mai & Dr. Nancy Zhu
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture (the insertion of very fine needles to promote the flow of energy within the body) is a balancing technique purported to restore the body to optimal health. The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues, blood flow and nervous pulses also follow meridians to run through the body to various parts, structures and organs. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers are like a dam that backs up the flow in one part of the body and restricts it in others. Any obstruction and blockages or deficiencies of energy, blood and nervous pulses would eventually lead to disease. Needling the acupuncture points can influence the meridians: the acupuncture needles unblock the obstruction at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body's internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians. According to the needling methods, acupuncture can be divided into traditional acupuncture, ear acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, scalp acupuncture and hand acupuncture etc. Over the last few decades, traditional acupuncture was widely used combining with other techniques, like moxi-needling, cup-needling etc, to increase the therapeutic effects. Modern science explain the functions of acupuncture as following: Needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones, which influence the body's own internal regulating system. Acupuncture has been used by Chinese people for thousands of year, and it becomes more and more popular in the Western societies. Here is the BBC documentary film about the acupuncture.
