Boost Your Body’s
Natural Healing Abilities

We believe that the proper balance and smooth flow of Qi (energy) is critical to our health. Qi flows through our bodies along meridian channels. Blocked or stagnated Qi can cause pain and other symptoms.

Yang Institute offers acupuncture treatment to open the blocked energy channels, facilitate the flow of qi, and established patients’ energetic balances. The treatment also helps boost their natural healing abilities.

Acupuncture often provides fast relief of chronic pain by opening the blocked meridians and moving the stagnated flow of qi and blood.

A Guide to Acupuncture

I’m so amazed! After only 12 sessions, a chronic lower back pain I had for a few years is 90% better.

I came with this pain in my upper right thigh, resulting from exercise. The practitioner put the pins (acupuncture needles) around my navel. I felt like electricity moved to this spot on my thigh and I NEVER ever felt the thigh pain again. My Practitioner knows her stuff. The best part is when the session is done, I am so relaxed!”

~ A. Harper

Chinese Medicine
for Health & Wellness Program

Yang Institute’s Chinese Medicine Health and Wellness Program is designed to help people improve their physical and mental function, and relieve pain and stress by facilitating, balancing, redirecting, and replenishing the flow of the body’s vital energy.

Yang Institute’s Comprehensive
Chinese Medicine Services

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Based on our comprehensive Chinese medicine evaluation, the strategically formulated herbal remedies supplement the body’s deficient energy (Qi), remove the stagnation of Qi and blood, remove toxins, and restore the body’s energetic homeostasis. Chinese herbal medicine is an energetic agent that treats both acute and chronic illness, promotes health, and helps one age gracefully.

Acupressure

Acupressure is a manual treatment that uses the same diagnosis and acupuncture points as acupuncture uses except using the gentle but firm pressure of the hands.

Moxibustion

It helps stimulate blood and energy flow, and maintain general health. Yang Institute’s acupuncturists may use moxibustion for people suffering from a cold, stagnant condition, or Qi deficiency.

Cupping

Cupping helps to stimulate the flow of blood and energy, break up obstructions, and create a channel for toxins to be extracted from the patient’s bodies.

Scalp & Ear Acupuncture

Scalp and ear acupuncture are two special techniques we use at Yang Institute. Although both are capable of treating a variety of health problems, scalp acupuncture is most effective for treating neurological and psychiatric conditions, while ear acupuncture is very helpful for weight loss, pain, and addiction including smoking cessation.
