Traditional Chinese Acupuncture

What is acupuncture?

“Acupuncture involes the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points in your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasinlgy, it is being used for overall wellness. Depending on the strategic point stimulated, acupuncture can release tension, facilitate healing, improve local circulation, and reduce pain.

According to the World Health Organization, acupuncture has been proved to be an effective treatment for depression, menstruation pain, stroke, infertility, musculoskeletal pain, and rheumatoid arthritis,” among other conditions. - Frank Yeh, PhD, R.Ac

Does it hurt?

Most first patients are surprised and pleasant to find that acupuncture treatment is a relaxing and pleasant experience. The needles are as fine as a human hair. Some people only feel a small prick as the needle passes the skin, many don’t feel anything at all. There may be a sensation of heaviness, slight ache, or a twitch as the needle reaches the correct spot, or there may be no sensation felt at all.

After Frank graduated from the University of Toronto, he worked in a company that was developing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) software, shadowing the practitioners was one of his primary job responsibilities. He was immediately fascinated by the art of TCM and impressed as to how powerful it is as a natural treatment. From there, he went on to study acupuncture at the University of Bridgeport, where he completed over 2500 hours of training and earned his master’s degree.

Upon completion of the Master’s Program, he was admitted with a full scholarship into a PhD Acupuncture program at the Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. At the origin of TCM, he was able to learn so much more. He was able to see 20-30 patients per day with various ailments, which allowed him to gain a lot of clinical experiences in the treatment of acute or chronic pain, stroke, infertility, and cancer related diseases. In preparation for his PhD thesis, it has become his habit to study cutting edge data from current medical and acupuncture research. In 2018, he successfully completed the program and earned his PhD degree.

In 2019, Frank completed his training in cosmetic acupuncture in Toronto, Ontario.
