Your Downtown Vancouver Acupuncture and Hypnosis Clinic

What is Acupuncture?

Our bodies have a series of vertical tube-like channels called meridians or energy pathways which connect to all of our major organs.

If the energy in these tubes is always moving there can be no illness.
When this energy gets blocked we begin to feel the symptoms of illness – headaches, cramps, depression, joint aches and pains, digestive disorders, etc.

Contracting forces -- our environment, our diet, and our thinking -- can block the flow of this meridian energy (Qi), affect our organ’s physiological functions, and cause illness.

Symptoms can manifest in any meridian anywhere on the body, inside and out, depending on which organ is involved.  According to TCM theory, even serious illness like cancer belongs to long term blockages of energy causing long term blood stasis.

This is where acupuncture is used very effectively to open up the flow of stagnant energy and return the organ’s functions before a serious condition manifests.

What does acupuncture feel like?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine hair-like needles into specific points (apertures) along the body's meridian pathways.

The degree of sensation is similar to a light pin prick, and/or in some cases can feel like a very low amperage electrical pulse.

Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture treatments are usually painless.  Even where there is blockage it is far less painful than say plucking out a hair.

Subsequent sensations can include mild tingling, slight numbness, very dull achiness, or electrical pulsations in areas distant from the site of insertion.

Acupuncture for Anxiety

Being one of the most common destructive emotions in our modern world, Anxiety can have the most negative effect on your health and well being. Some people have had anxiety for so long they have forgotten what it like not to have it and it becomes the new norm. This is dangerous. Anxiety can be devastating and with some, even turning into panic.

Anxiety is another word for fear. The best authentic description of anxiety is actually being in this moment but wanting to be in the next moment. In other words, not being okay with this moment because of being overwhelm with the “What if” scenario. The what if this happens or what if that happens which is actually a projection into a future that doesn’t exist yet.

The best treatments for Anxiety that I’ve ever used is Acupuncture and Hypnosis or Acupuncture and meditation combined. For those who have fear of needles the Acupuncture treatment can be done with very effective painless Cold Lazer  The only way to really solve this fearful illusion is through a process of inner connection and self discovery to change the perspective of any given situation. I find this very effectively achieved using Hypno - Acupunture. Because “No One” really knows what will happen in the next moment, we all deserve to find a way to be okay with uncertainty, have a peaceful heart and a happy life. There is such a thing as “End of suffering”.


Acupuncture for Depression

Probably the modern worlds most destructive emotion pain.  It has been described as the flip side of anger or actually anger at ones self or anger turned inward. Resentment, frustration, irritability, bitterness etc. are closely related to depression and anger. Some of the many symptoms that may show up physically are headache, dizziness, menstrual pain, facial redness or paleness, tendon, nail or eye problems, dry mouth etc.

Anti depressants has become the most used modern drug, a major money maker for Big Pharma but more and more people are realizing how dangerous they are. They don’t treat the root cause of depression anyway and only postpone the time of reckoning. Everyone has to realize they need to face the real cause of depression, instead of numbing it. Realize the truth which is to let go of the belief that we are powerless to solve our own problems. Meditation verses Medication because true healing is self healing. Long term depression gets “wired in” so to speak. Wired into our neurology like any thoughts that are repeated over and over. This requires going within to impact the Quantum field to reach your goals, including your health goals.
