Hello my name is Justin Hays LAc, and I'm the third generation owner
of Maui Acupuncture. My main office is in Lahaina and I have a satellite
location in Kihei. I specialize in pain management and Chinese nutrition.
Diet and lifestyle are often the root cause of disease, but stuck thoughts,
feelings, and emotions can make it seem impossible for clients to make
different choices. My unique clinical approach examines the holistic "big
picture" and offers a variety of tools to help address both acute
and chronic health problems. Book
On the whole acupuncture is an incremental gains sort of health care system, but there are some things that can be resolved instantly with just one treatment. In particular I tend to achieve dramatic instant relief with sports injuries and acute pain using acupuncture systems like Dr. Tan's balance method. Temporary (acute) emotional disorders can also change very quickly in clinic, while chronic (long term) problems tend to require regular visits 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. Oriental medicine is not just acupuncture. Acupuncture is only one small part of the field which also includes Chinese herbs, nutrition, body exercises like tai chi, qigong, cupping, moxabustion, guasha, and more. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine are based in Taoist philosophy and they work to balance and harmonize the invisible energy system (qi) of the body.
As I mentioned acupuncture is a system based on incremental gains. When there is a deficiency in one organ system we look look for an excess in another organ system and move the energy around to help balance it out. Excess is easy to reduce and can change very quickly, while deficiency syndromes take more time to heal. With regular care the yin and yang become more harmonious over time, and a greater sense of balance is experienced. But years of clinical practice have taught me that in some cases the problem goes beyond what Chinese medicine was designed to address....in some cases balancing is not enough because the root cause of imbalance has not been adressed. An example might be someone who is suffering from diabetes but can't quit drinking alcohol. In these sorts of cases we can only get so far with acupuncture, herbs, and nutrition before we have to address the underlying behavioral issues and belief systems.

I incorporate an integrative approach to Chinese Medicine,
which means I usually understand what your medical doctors are telling
you. Please DO bring relevant blood work, xrays, and MRIs when available.
While they may not influence my treatment plan directly they will help
me to paint the holistic "big picture" and may provide valuable
clues to assist you on your healing journey. For instance I have helped
diagnose people who were suffering from problems due to taking precription
drugs that were designed to solve other problems. 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.

I understand it can feel challenging to try new things. My goal is to make you feel extremely comfortable and safe once you visit the office. My acupuncture style is very gentle, and I use only single use sterile (disposable) needles. My intention is that the first acupuncture treatment is above all an enjoyable experience. Most of my patients are astonished by how relaxed and invigorated they feel after their first appointment. In fact, many of them make remarks such as, 'I can't believe I have waited this long to try this! This is amazing! I wish I would have seen you years ago!' Check out some testimonials here, and you can find even more testimonials on the services pages (click the services menu on the right hand side of this screen), and on my facebook fan page.
