Acupuncture is just one small part of a healing modality known as Traditional
Chinese Medicine (TCM). Traditional Chinese medicine is over 3,000
years old. Acupuncture works together with
moxibustion, guasha, cupping, Chinese herbs, Chinese nutrition, Tuina
(Chinese medical massage), and exercises (like qigong and tai chi). Justin's unique clinical approach examines the holistic "big
picture" and offers a variety of tools to help address both acute
and chronic health problems. Book
Acupuncture is based on the daoist principles of bringing the body's energy system - and therefore the body - back into balance. This is done according the to principles of yin and yang, of deficiency and excess, and according to 5 element diagnostics theory in TCM Often clients will present with a mixture of symptoms such as excess (qi stagnation) in the upper back and deficiency (qi deficiency) in the lower back. Alternatively clients may present with inbalances of heat and cold such as heat in the large intestine and cold in the small intestine. Using TCM diagnostics and balancing techniques the body can be brought back into greater harmony and greater health can be experienced. These days the food supply is quite corrupt, and food that seems to be healthy may in fact be a factor causing disharmony. Diet, lifestyle changes, Chinese herbs, nutritional supplementation, and exercise are all important factors towards experiencing total health.
Because it is works by bringing the body back into balance, acupuncture is an incremental gains sort of health care system. Normally your acupuncture practitioner will encourage you to come in for more than one office visit, but there are some things that can be resolved instantly with just one treatment. In particular you may achieve dramatic results with sports injuries and acute pain using acupuncture treatment modalities like Dr. Tan's balance method. However please note that in the case of a torn muscle or ligament acupuncture will not actually repair the tendon itself. But it will correct underlying energy imbalances that may have contributed to the problem, and it is shown in research studies to help the tear to mend with greater success.
Temporary (acute) emotional disorders can also change
very quickly in clinic, while chronic (long term) problems tend to require
acupuncture combined with diet and herbs. Because Chinese medicine
is based on more than 3000 years of medical use in China, it is a highly
developed comprehensive healing system that can treat a wide
variety of problems. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine are based in
philosophy which is concerned with balancing and harmonizing the
invisible energy (qi) of the body.
Acupuncture is a system based on incremental gains. Five element theory looks for an excess in one organ system that can be used to tonify deficiency in another. Acupuncture guides and redirects the energy (qi) to help the person reach equilibrium. Some clients have more deficiency than excess, while some are overall more deficient. Excess symptoms are easier to reduce and can change very quickly, while deficiency syndromes may take more time to tonify and heal. In addition acupuncture is concerned with balancing the yin and the yang. Yin represents the resting energy, sleep, evening, night, and the moon... while yang energy is normally associated with waking energy, activity, creation, daytime, and the sun. Yin is also perceived as being more feminine while yang is more masculine. With regular care by a trained practitioner of Oriental medicine the yin and yang become more harmonious over time, and a greater sense of well-balanced health is experienced.

A message from Justin:
In my practice I always try to incorporate a holistic and integrative approach to Chinese Medicine. Please DO bring relevant blood work, xrays, list of supplement & prescriptions you are taking, and MRIs when available. Only by gathering ALL of the information can we paint the holistic "big picture" that provides valuable clues to assist you on your healing journey. It can also be tremendously helpful to create a diet journal and bring that with you to your first treatment. For instance the precription drugs you are taking, or the foods you are eating, may be contributing to some of your symptoms. This is why the "big picture" approach is so important, and so effective.
I believe that approximately 50% of all Americans could correctly be diagnosed with adrenal fatigue at some point in their lives. The main cause of adrenal fatique is prolonged stress. The average American is under a tremendous amount of stress, and rather than addressing it with stress busting activities the tendency is just to shove it deeper and try to ignore it. Over time the adrenal fatigue develops, and can often be a warning sign of bigger problems to come.
