About DaoQi/Services

DaoQi Acupuncture believes that we all pass through our life experiences so that we can become the teachers to help others in similar circumstances. We shall offer equally to every person without discrimination, full healing treatments. We also consider every treatment necessary of encompassing lifestyle changes, nutrition importance, daily practice and adding acupuncture to find a balance point within.

As a Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Acupuncture is just one part of the treatment that most people are familiar with. However I use cupping on the Back-Shu points first to diagnose things like blood, qi and the internal organs. Cupping can also treat pain and aches so it makes a nice opener with Tui na, chinese massage to warm up the body and neurological system. Other modalities I use are estim (electrodes connected to the needles), Moxa in raw, pole or direct on the skin in rice grain size gold moxa. A moxa box warming over the abdomen is often used for digestive and menses problems. I also use Gua Sha (which has recently gotten fame for facials) but in its true reality the meaning is to make the skin red (petechiae) to move blood, often felt as fatigue and chronic pain all over body. I also use heat therapy through heat paks including mugwort leaves, and TDP lamps. Topical liniments made in old martial arts style Dit Dat Jiao, treat bruising and aches and pains by moving blood and qi. There are many options we have as a Medicine Practitioner, and I will always include nutirition therapy an general well-being counsel.

DaoQi Acupuncture is a full service acupuncture clinic offering supportive modalities such as Daoist Qigong, Yoga, Self-Healing Technique Trainings, Nutrition and Community Ceremonies. I believe the idea of the doctor shall be more than someone to see with an ailment, but rather medicine moving towards a whole and preventative healthcare.
