FACT

“Researchers have found that acupuncture produces significant neuro-immuno-endocrinological changes in the human body. Specifically, researchers have found that acupuncture calms areas of the brain that register pain and emotion, activates those areas involved in rest and recuperation, increases blood flow in the treated area, reduces inflammation for the body, and produces long-lasting improvement in the immune system.”

Decoding an Ancient Therapy. The Wall Street Journal. March 22, 2010

Acupuncture for wellness

Developed nearly 3000 years ago in China, acupuncture is at the forefront of symptom reduction, provoking almost immediate changes and improvements.

Acupuncture has three primary goals, all of which build towards a cumulative effect on your wellness:

  • Alleviate immediate symptoms, like mood swing, pain, craving, allergies.

  • Promote wellness and eliminate the underlying cause of your symptoms.

  • Maintain wellness and prevent future issues.

Better yet, acupuncture fits in well with our custom nutrition plans as well as proper exercise and meditation. By itself, Acupuncture unlocks 30-50% of your healing potential, and when used as part of comprehensive, holistic treatment, the results are much stronger.

A 2007 clinical study published in the Archive of Internal Medicine demonstrated the benefits of acupuncture to treat lower back pain. The study involved over 1100 participants, all of whom were currently undergoing treatment for lower back pain. The researchers assigned the participants to three different treatment groups, wherein participants would receive either real acupuncture, sham acupuncture, or conventional treatment consisting of medication, physical therapy, and exercise. After six months, researchers found that participants in the real acupuncture group showed the most improvement.

These results demonstrate acupuncture’s effectiveness and explain its popularity as a non-invasive solution. It’s no wonder that acupuncture has entered the mainstream and garnered close attention from the medical community. Distinguished institutions, such as Harvard Medical School and MD Anderson Cancer Center, have researched and incorporated acupuncture into their medical curriculum.

Our highly trained professionals utilize acupuncture alone or in combination with other services as part of your wellness plan. Specifically, acupuncture can be used for:

  • Asthma and allergies (Food and Seasonal)
  • Acute and chronic pain management
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Blood pressure and cholesterol reduction
  • Cravings and addictions
  • Digestive disorders
  • Infertility
  • Neuropathic pain and nervous system disorders
  • Stress and chronic fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances and mood disorders

Based on its official review of many clinical studies, the World Health Organization found that acupuncture is effective in treating over 100 conditionsFor a comprehensive list of clinical studies that informed the WHO’s decision, please see their 2002 report, Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials.

At weMED, we know that acupuncture can seem intimidating. We assure you that acupuncture is safe and painless. We urge you to ask questions and try acupuncture for yourself. However, we also offer acupressure. This modification isn’t as effective as acupuncture, but it’s a good fit for people who don’t like needles and can be useful in combination with your overall wellness plan.

“I have found Dr. You to be a responsible, caring, dedicated medical professional who is diligent in his pursuit of his patients’ well being and developing more collegial relations between western and eastern medical disciplines. He is in the forefront of helping to educate the community of western physicians.”

William Riley, MD, Neurologist

“What a delight it is to watch my patients improve under the skillful care of Drs. You and Ma. When what I have to offer through Western medicine holds considerable risk, both my patients and I are grateful for the non-invasive alternatives of acupuncture and herbal medicine.”

Margit Winstrom, MD, Family Practitioner

“Dr. Yu cured me from 100% debilitating pain to 100% pain free.”

Jill Barris, Google Reviews

“Couldn’t recommend a better place. Accupuncture can seem kind of daunting at first, but I couldn’t have felt more comfortable at weMED. The people there are so nice and the atmosphere is very clean and relaxing. Great bedside table manner! I was able to get relief from some of my smaller problems like a headache one day when I went in and also some of my larger problems regarding stomach issues and anxiety. Everyone is very credible and I would trust any of the doctors in the office. Also, their reception desk is extremely responsive in a good way and you almost never have to talk to an answering machine. A must go for anyone looking for relief!”

Claire D., Yelp Reviews

“Definitely Recommend Dr You , Dr Ma, and other Oriental medical Medicine Practitioners here. Dr You have treated so many patients We referred to him with miracle result, saved so many people’s surgery and big money with his small tiny needles by doing acupuncture.
Our therapists use their fingers to do acupressure massage to help many people with their pain management, but fingers could not work as good as the needles, (those small tiny needles are not painful at all, because it is inserted in the acupuncture points in your body), for the benefit of the acupuncture, please google it, for the Master of Acupuncture, you can come to this clinic.”

All Is Well Massage & Spa, Google Reviews

“weMED has helped me get closer to my old self again. I suffered from a brain injury 5 years ago.  I have been to 3 different rehab facilities, in-patient and out-patient, where only westernized medical treatment therapies are offered.  Sure they helped but it’s not a totally comprehensive type of care. For my treatment plan, cupping, acupuncture and herbs are used along with teaching me Tai Chi.  weMED’s staff is kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. I’ve never waited for treatments in the two months I’ve been going.  The building is very handicapped accessible. There is a paid parking garage or free street parking on Drexler Street next to the Art Institute with sidewalks to cut through. It’s nice when leaving the office that other clients have smiles on their faces and look to be generally happy. I’m only two moths into my treatments and see and feel results.”
