Dr. Tan acupuncture clears blockages that are causing problems such as pain or disease. Needles are placed at specific points that are distant from your pain or dysfunction. This effectively draws blockage away from the problem area thereby freeing the flow of energy. Dr. Tan acupuncture uses a system of mirrors and images. For instance, when treating knee pain, needles are placed in the elbow. Likewise the hand can be needled when treating foot pain. The body part chosen as the treatment region acts as a ‘mirror image’ of the painful or dysfunctional region of your body. After a series of treatments, pain is relieved, symptoms are reduced, and freedom of movement is restored. Dr. Tan explains this as being similar to turning on a ceiling light by flipping a switch on the wall. The switch is distant from the light bulb. The light receives electrical energy once the switch turns on the flow. In the same way we can use an acupuncture point on your hand to relieve pain in your back, or a point at your knee to help your stomach function better.
Pain relief is just the beginning! Dr. Tan Balance Method of acupuncture is very effective for restoring balance in people with chronic conditions and internal illness such as digestive disturbance, insomnia, menstrual issues, urinary difficulty, lung problems, PMS, fatigue, arthritis, and more. For these conditions, Dr. Tan’s acupuncture theory dives deeper into ancient theory, using what he calls the ’12 Magic Points’. In this system, the 12 major meridians are balanced with one needle each. This effectively treats the entire body with the minimum number of needles.
Pain and illness get in the way of daily living. My goal is to restore your health so that you live a pain free, healthy life. Get back to doing the things you love.
