Dr. Huang’s Clinic Programs


Sterile, tube-guided, disposable needles are applied to the acupoints of the body, ear or scalp. To enhance needle effect small electric current may be applied. To extend needle effect fine press needles may be embedded in acupoints for a few days. The choice of acupoints for treatment is based on the differential diagnosis of the diseases with Yin-Yang and Five element theories.

Acupressure & Reflexology

Acupoints, where acupuncture is not appropriate are pressed with fingers. Foot acupressure, i.e. Reflexology is frequently used. Ear acupoints are pressed with small herbal seeds that may be left in position for a few days to extend the effect. Acupressure is often used in conjunction with acupoint massage.

Tui Na (Chinese Acupoint Massage)

Tui Na (pronounced “twee-nah”) makes use of many different strokes that are applied to acupoints, channels and muscle groups. When combined with acupuncture and acupressure, Tui Na can effectively move Chi to help the pain and promote general health.


Moxibustion treats and prevents diseases by applying heat to acupoints. The material used is mainly “moxa-wool” in the form of a cone or stick and on ginger slices. Moxibustion and acupuncture is combined in clinical practice. The moxa leaf is bitter and acrid, producing warmth that can travel through the meridians, regulate Qi and blood, and expel cold and dampness from the meridians. read more…


Cupping is a therapy in which a negative pressure created through a jar or cup that is applied on local body surface to remove stagnation and promote free flow of Qi and blood, diminishing swelling and pain.

Chinese Herbal Medicine and Tea

Herbal Medicine and Tea is the substantial counterpart to the energetic medicine of acupuncture. Many treatments for internal disharmonies or chronic conditions can greatly benefit from the combined use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapies. For the convenience to my patients prepared Chinese herbal formulas tea are recommended. These formulas and tea are all natural products and marketed under the regulation of FDA as dietary supplements. About 300 prepared and concentrated formulas and teas are sufficient to meet my patientsÂ’ need.


Magnetic healing relies on the magnetÂ’s ability to affect the atomic and molecular electro-potential of the blood. Electromagneticly charged molecules and aggregates are able to travel throughout the body more efficiently, thus allowing the bloodÂ’s nourishing energy to more effectively support healing and recovery. Electromagnetic Lamp (so-called “Magic Lamp” in China) and pulse electromagnetic therapies are used in this clinic. read more…

Qi Gong and Tai Chi

Qi Gong is a discipline whose practice allows us to gain control over the life force that courses throughout our bodies. Medical Qi Gong is a soft form of a related set of disciplines that includes Tai Chi Quan. The hard form is called Kung Fu. This clinic offers classes and seminars on Medical Qi Gong and Tai Chi, in conjunction with acupuncture treatments in order for patients to get the cultivation and deliberate control of a higher form of vital energy to facilitate healing and increase health.
