Hi Everyone,

Hope you all are staying safe! The COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected not only our local communities, but also many communities around the world. These are some stressful times for us, especially for those of us who do not have access to healthcare.

For this reason, I wanted to offer a 60-minute Stress Relief Yoga Session taught by Certified Yoga Instructor, Jo Pan. This session will be completely FREE; however, we would greatly appreciate donations of any amount. 100% of the proceeds will be going to Doctors Without Borders to assist their COVID-19 relief efforts. To register for the class and make donations, please use the links down below. Once you have registered, we will send you a confirmation email containing a link to the Zoom session.

Thank you all so much and I look forward to seeing you in the yoga session.

Happy Monday! Today’s TCM Toolkit topic will be on Qi Gong.

Qi Gong is defined by the National Qi Gong Association as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one’s physical and mental health by integrating posture, movement, breathing techniques, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. Qi Gong opens the flow of energy throughout the body’s meridians and can benefit many conditions ranging from stress to chronic illnesses.

There are many styles of Qi Gong out there, but I currently enjoy practicing Yang style Tai Ji, Eight Pieces of Brocade, and Shaolin Sinew Changes. Tai Ji and Eight Pieces of Brocade are great for warming up the body in the morning and stress management because it involves gentle movements and breathing techniques that nourish the organs. The Shaolin Sinew Changes aim to strengthen ligaments and tendons to better protect our joints from daily “wear and tear”.

If you have any questions on how to get started with Qi Gong fee free to shoot me a DM and ... See more

Hey guys! Today’s TCM Toolkit Topic will be Gua Sha. This treatment method is not as widely known as others, but still an incredibly effective tool.

Gua Sha is defined as instrument-assisted scraping of a lubricated body area to intentionally create temporary therapeutic petechiae (micro-bruising). The most commonly utilized instrument for Gua Sha is a ceramic spoon, however, almost any object with a smooth rounded edge can be used. The goal of Gua Sha is to release stagnant blood and toxins to allow for more blood and oxygen flow into the area, promoting an increased healing response. Gua Sha can be used to treat a variety of common conditions such as a cold, headaches, pain, stiffness, coughing, just to name a few.

At Huang Wellness Center, we usually use Gua Sha as an adjective treatment to Acupuncture for preventative care and an increased healing effect.

Hi everyone, hope you are all staying safe! I wanted to start a series called “The TCM Toolkit” where I will briefly describe the many skills Acupuncturists can utilize in their clinic. Today, we will begin with the most commonly used tool....ACUPUNCTURE!

Acupuncture in the simplest form is the practice of inserting thin, sterile needles into specific points along the body’s meridians. However, acupuncture has more aspects than just the insertion of needles. Two aspects I want to talk more in depth upon are needle manipulation and Acupuncture Microsystems.

Needle manipulation involves either the practitioner manually manipulating the needle or connecting the needles to an electrical stimulation unit. Two commonly used manual manipulation techniques are lifting/thrusting and rotating. Lifting/thrusting is when the needle is slightly lifted to a more superficial level than slightly thrusted at a deeper level. Rotating is when the needle stays at the same depth and is twisted in ...

What is Cupping? 🤔

Cupping is typically used as an adjunctive therapy to acupuncture. It utilizes plastic or glass cups to create a suction and lift the soft tissue in specific areas of the body. With plastic cups the suction is created using a pump, while fire is used to create the suction with glass cups AKA “Fire Cupping”🔥.

Cupping is effective for many conditions, with pain management being of the most common. Cupping helps reduce pain by lifting the skin and muscle layers allowing new blood to enter and nourish the area.

There are also different ways to apply the cups with “Slide Cupping” and “Stationary Cupping” being two of the more common ones. Stationary cupping is when the cups are applied onto one area of the body and left there for a certain time period. Slide cupping involves a massage oil lubricant allowing cup movement over a broader area such as the whole back.

Cupping is a great therapy that locally unblocks the flow and Qi and Blood to promote ... See more
