Nuero Balance Acupuncture Specialist
Not all acupuncture is the same.

Dr. Mui is one of the few TCM doctors in North America with extensive experience in Neuro Balance Acupuncture. He has treated patients successfully who suffer from MS, stroke and depression.
Meridian Analysis is a new technology in TCM that analyzes a patient’s organ and meridian energy functions and conditions. A simple node is placed on the meridian source points and reads the energy signals transmitted from the body. This straight-forward analysis provides clients with a detailed report identifying areas of health weakness, and also providing suggestions for TCM treatment and wellness diet.

Acupuncture and Moxibustion
by Dr. Wally Mui, Ph.D., Dr.TCM, R.Ac.
How Acupuncture Works
Highly recognized by the WHO (World Health Organization), acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical procedure (over 5,000 years) that involves the insertion and manipulation of sterilized stainless-steel needles in the body. It was developed with the theory that there are special meridian
points on the body connected to the internal organs and that vital energy flows along the meridian lines. Illness occurs when the cycle of this energy, Qi, is blocked, deficient, or excessive. Stimulating meridian points and energy channels (Qi) along the meridian lines helps to
unblock the stagnation, redirect and balance the flow of Qi. It does not use any chemicals and does not have any side effects. Modern research has shown that the body’s immune system, nervous system, endocrine system, metabolism and microorganisms are affected, regulated, and improved by acupuncture treatment.
Traditional Chinese medicine also uses “moxibustion” (burning of mugwort herb) as a supplemental treatment during an acupuncture session. It is believed to expel cold and warm the meridians, which leads to smoother flow of blood and Qi and maintains general health. If Moxibustion is used, the mugwort will smolder, conducting heat through the needle to the tissue surrounding the needle in the patient’s body. After the desired effect is achieved, the moxa (mugwort herb) is extinguished and the needle is removed.
What ailments is it used for?

Chinese Herbal Foot Steam Therapy
The clinic has a new type of foot steamer which merges the principles of Chinese medicine and spa steam treatment. Herbal steaming stimulates the skin’s respiratory system to: detoxify by promoting sweating; clear the meridians; balance yin and yang; repair and regenerate the bodily organs; and harmonize the body and mind to achieve better health. Foot steaming can help:
• improve blood circulation
• increase metabolism and burn calories for weight control
• reduce stress and promote sleep
• ease fatigue
• relieve rheumatism and arthritic joint pain
• increase cardiac output (without extra stress being placed on the heart)
• lower blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and triglycerides
Chinese Herbal Foot Massage
Chinese foot massage originated from China over 5,000 years ago. It’s concepts are based on healing by stimulating certain areas of the foot which correspond to parts of the body, including the internal organs (this is the principle of reflexology). The treatment combines foot massage pressure points and Chinese herbal medicine.
