Why Acupuncture?


Our goal is to not only to help our patients to get to their optimum health and well-being, but also to assist women to conceive.  There has been numerous use of acupuncture for treatment of varying diseases and symptoms associated with neurologic, gynaecological, and psychological disorders.

There is a saying goes “your body is a temple”. Acupuncture can help with health maintenance and prevention making sure your body is kept “holy”. For this reason, acupuncture therapy might become an extremely versatile option with wonderful benefits to offer. Here are several best of the reasons why you should go for acupuncture:

1) An acupuncturist treats each patient individually tailored

Every person is unique and there is an interconnection of cells in that person’s body that function as part of an integrated whole. In other words, acupuncture treats the whole body, not just individual parts. The root of a symptom that two people are experiencing may be completely different and therefore a thorough health history is taken during the initial exam.

Acupuncture is also safe using disposable sterile needles without any risk of infection. Acupuncture needles are very different compared to hypodermic needles used for injections. They don’t hurt in the way that hypodermic needles do since they are very flexible and only the size of a hair.

2) Acupuncture may boost our body immune system and restores self-healing ability

Acupuncture may activate the body’s natural healing ability by treating the root causes of the health problem. Research shows that acupuncture triggers the body’s own mechanisms for producing its own pain relieving chemicals; endorphins and dopamine. The body then operates like a pharmacy that gives perfect “medication” for healing without any undesirable side effects!

Acupuncture may boost the body’s immune system that is weakened sometimes by illness and/or certain treatments, poor lifestyle, and medications. The purpose of acupuncture is to find and treat the existing irregularities that are disrupting the Qi flow (read “chee”), our vital energy or power, and the immune system by focusing on the root causes.

3) Acupuncture may enhance women and men fertility

Dr Cui, who has been in practice for almost 25 years, recommends that Acupuncture to be combined with Chinese herbal medicine for patients to have more effective results in conceiving. A British survey also mentioned that acupuncture may increase a woman’s chance to conceive by 65% and improve the likeliness of live birth by 91%.
