Issues / Benefits

Presenting issues and problems or types of clients

Why do people come to see you?
Most individuals have not obtained any relief or benefits from their current ailments through conventional medicines. Patient referrals have prompted most of my newest patients.

Who is an ideal client?
Individual who are willing to try a holistic approach, change their current life style to harmonize the elements in their world and live a healthier and happier life.

Benefits and results people see

By balancing and harmonizing the body’s life forces, we can relieve and possibly eliminate illness, pain, fever, diarrhea, … etc and allow an individual to live a more productive and healthier life.


Healing philosophy or mission

1. TCM is a philosophy, a Way of Life,
2. We help the body restore its ability to heal itself. It is not merely the herbs or the needles or physical therapies that cures a disease. We provide a lifestyle, which harmonize an individual so that their internal systems, body and organs combined with outside forces improve its overall processing efficiency. This obtains a balance Qi, which leads to a better and healthier lifestyle.
3. Fu Zheng Qu Xie
Help the Immune System Attack the Disease (Bacterial, virus, cancer, etc) Support right and dispel evil -depend on the condition of the patient to set priority to improved the immune system or to attack the viral infections or both simultaneously.

Uniqueness and what makes you good

Describe your style or approach:
1. Slow but sure approach (bottom line to do no Harm)
2. From light to heavy (pressure, dosage)
3. Intrusive procedure as a last resort

What makes you different/good at what you do?
With a holistic approach to the problem, time is spent with the patient going through the entire individual’s Qi. A balancing of an individual’s Qi & Blood is the root of curing the individual’s illness. The individual’s current complaints are merely a result of their unbalanced Qi & Blood. Relieving the symptom in the immediate period does not eliminate the underlying cause of the symptoms. I combined the four modality of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) instead of just one method to obtain the body’s harmonization.

Why do you do what you do?
1. I come from 7th generation of Chinese medicine; It is a mission to carry on.
2. I enjoy the work, the challenge and delight in the ability to bring relief for individual suffering.

What else might someone want to know about you?
