9000 Needles Documentary cover photo

9000 Needles” is a documentary made about one American’s journey to Tianjin Hospital in China to discover unprecedented relief from a severe stroke. The featured doctor in charge of his treatment, Dr. Shi Xue Min, is considered “the father of (modern) acupuncture” and was the immediate teacher to my teacher, Dr. Clayton Shiu. From Dr. Shiu I learned the radically innovative techniques and methodologies used in Tianjin Hospital to awaken dormant parts of the brain suffered from any stroke or brain injury.

How We Heal the Brain Naturally

Core Factors Assessment

We do a complete neurological assessment to determine which parts of the brain are impacted, as well as a systems review to understand your underlying pattern.

Simple Plan of Attack

Healing your brain does not have to be difficult. We'll determine a clear, concise treatment plan that may include some easy homework but will absolve you of any guess work.

Cerebrovascular Acupuncture

We use proven, advanced acupuncture techniques and/or electro-acupuncture to increase cerebrovascular flow and awaken dormant regions of the brain.

Targeted Internal Medicine

With the proper combination of simple dietary modifications and specified herbal supplements, we can improve cerebrovascular circulation and functionality.

Ensure Lasting Results

Once having achieved consistent pain relief, we'll reduce the frequency of treatments and empower you with self-regulating tools to ensure that your results last.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt?

Acupuncture needles are the thinnest, most gentle needles in the world. Upon insertion you will most likely feel nothing, after which you may or may not feel a slight pressure point or nerve sensation to initiate the body’s natural anti-inflammatory mechanism.

Have you cured this before?

Yes. Every case is different, so there is never any guarantee of results, but this area is one of our specialties in which we’ve seen consistent improvement as well as full resolutions from regular acupuncture. 

 

What are the needles doing?

When it comes to physical pain, acupuncture excels at either relaxing hypertonic muscles or boosting weaker muscles in a way that allows the body to heal itself

Will I be on a lot of supplements forever?

No. With herbal medicine we try to use the bare minimum to elicit maximum results and do not expect or desire for patients to be reliant on them in perpetuity. Supplements are very rarely needed for cases of exclusively musculoskeletal pain.

 

How long do I have to come to see results?

A standard course of medical treatment for chronic conditions is 12 visits over the course of 2 months. HOWEVER, you may see results as early as the very first treatment and absolutely should experience some progress during the first month.

Are these treatments safe?

Yes. Acupuncture is considered to be one of the safest modalities in existence, with at worst the very occasional, mild soreness or bruise at the site of a point.
