Acupuncture is the Chinese system of holistic healthcare discovered over 3500 years ago. It is the comprehensive wellness system that serves more than 2 billion people world-wide. The National Institute of Health, after researching the efficacy of this holistic, alternative wellness approach stated that Acupuncture provides solutions for such problems as headaches, migraines, allergies, digestive problems, low back pain, Fibromyalgia, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and many more.

When Mao Tse Tung came to power in China there were secret Acupuncture techniques known to produce miraculous results, which were only passed down within families. Gifted wellness masters practicing this method were persecuted and fled to Taiwan. A young woman, Miriam Lee, studied with one of these masters, Master Tung, and arrived in California in the early 1970’s. She had a line of people from her house, stretching around the block waiting for her alternative treatment. People came from out-of-state to see her. She got great results. Then she was arrested for practicing without a license. At her trial many came forward to testify how they had been helped, here in California by her holistic acupuncture methods. Miriam was freed, and Governor Ronald Reagan made it into an experimental holistic procedure. Governor Jerry Brown subsequently made Acupuncture, an alternative wellness healthcare system, into a licensed profession that now serves Californa including the Greater Los Angeles extending up the San Fernando Valley, to Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. We have been using Master Tung’s Balance Method since 1999, see Acupuncture, click here.

Acupuncture uses thread-like stainless steel needles to balance the body’s subtle energy systems. This produces therapeutic effects on the regulatory processes of the brain, internal organs, nervous system, body chemistry, blood circulation, and musculoskeletal system.

Recently, science has determined that human beings are complex bioelectric systems. Energy circulates throughout the body along well defined pathways. Precise points on the skin along these pathways are energetically connected to specific body structures, organs and systems. Acupuncture points are stimulated to balance these energies which influence the health of the whole person.

Many people are surprised at how comfortable they are during acupuncture treatment and how easily the acupuncture needles are placed. An achy fullness, tingling, or warmth is sometimes felt, but these are energetic sensations that differ from pain. People often remark that these sensations, though unfamiliar, are relaxing. One common side effect of acupuncture treatment is a euphoric state of calmness. Only the finest quality disposable stainless steel and gold needles are used in our treatments.
