Our Signature Treatment: Interstitial Cystitis

In 1994, Qingyao Shi, Lic. OM & Acu., our medical director, began clinical research with one of the most nationally renowned interstitial cystitis (IC) experts, Dr. Kristine Whitmore, the chairman of Urology, Graduate Hospital, Philadelphia. Consequently, they ended up developing a unique Chinese herbal formula called “Intercys”. In 1998, Dr. Whitmore announced the resulting paper “The Chinese Medicine approach: Herbal Treatment for Interstitial Cystitis” at the 10th International Conference of ICA in Washington, DC. Qingyao Shi was invited to speak at this conference and ordered to be the first author of the paper due to her significant contributions.

Each year, we receive more and more requests for treatment from IC patients all over the country. Because of this, we have set up an interstitial cystitis intensive treatment program which combines acupuncture, allergy elimination treatment, and Chinese herbal medicine to target the patient’s immune system. Our follow up studies show that many of them have reached major improvements, and some of our IC patients have reported that they feel like "a new person" and their other illnesses, such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, and even cancer, have also been improved.

Traditional Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine

Originating in China, acupuncture is based on the idea that the body has 14 well-defined pathways or meridians. These channels convey the life force-energy, and they are named after organs, such as the lung meridian, stomach meridian, etc. According to Chinese medicine, the free flow of energy in the meridians ensures the body’s health and energy; when the meridian energy is blocked or diminishes, though, pain and illness occur. To adjust the energy flow and bring back health, our acupuncturists insert thin sterile needles at acupuncture points to correct the blockage.

Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET)

The unique combination of traditional Chinese acupuncture and NAET treatment is great for seasonal allergies, asthma, sinuses, and other respiratory problems that affect both adults and children, and our experienced acupuncturists have been working on it for years. However, NAET is not just limited to eliminating seasonal allergies; it's also a solution for immune disorders since many auto-immune diseases are triggered by allergies. Undiagnosed allergies to food and environmental substances may cause a variety of health problems, such as chronic fatigue, migraines, emotional distress, and even pain. For NAET, our process begins with muscle testing to determine the allergens and find the blocked meridians. Following this, we activate the organ access points in order to reprogram the brain and make chemical changes.

Chinese Massage

If you're looking to get a relaxing massage, then you've come to the right place. Our massage therapy helps to heal and promote well-being through natural and non-invasive methods. From the moment you walk into our clinic all the way until the end of your massage, you will notice a comfortable environment that evokes tranquility. We offer deep tissue massage, sports massage, and DDS (Dermal Delivery System) Machine massage.

Cupping

In recent years, more U.S. Olympians have been seen with temporary circular red marks on their bodies, a sign of cupping therapy, as cupping has become more popular (and for good reason). We provide cupping for our patients who have neck or upper back pain. One of our patients suffers from heart congestion due to coronary artery blockage, and he kept on feeling chest tightness despite the medication. After he underwent cupping, his breathing became better, his chest tightness was gone, and his energy improved. Patients who complain of body heaviness and chronic fatigue are also good candidates of cupping because cupping draws the stagnant toxins, energy, or dampness out of where it has accumulated and up to the surface.

Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation Treatment

One of our most remarkable programs is with our facial acupuncture specialist. It is a combination treatment of acupuncture and our meridian purging machine known as DDS. The program consists of a total of twelve weekly treatments, with marked results becoming noticeable around the 6th visit. It is not unusual, though, for friends and family of our patients to comment on a difference in the patient that makes them appear younger after around the 4th visit.
