STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Last week on a latest SILive Tries, we went to a normal Chinese medicine doctor, Dr. Wei-Na Yu, and perceived an pain-killer and cupping treatment.
According to Dr. Yu, a lot of her patients come to her as a final review after burdensome western medicine options like earthy therapy and chiropractors. She pronounced that many of her cases are really severe, involving ongoing pain, though that patients customarily see relief, some from the initial treatment.
Acupuncture is a insertion of needles into specific points of a physique in sequence to palliate a intrusion to a upsurge of energy, or qi, in a body. It has been used in China for over 2,500 years.
While it looks painful, a diagnosis indeed felt like a massage and tragedy in my physique eased.
Check out a video if we missed it final week and see how I fared with a treatment.
