Acupuncture and its modern counterpart Aculaser represent one of the most prominent healing modalities within the Taoist healing armamentarium and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its mechanism of action is said to lie within the subtle realm of mind, organ, meridian and body connection. From a Western understanding, acupuncture may increase release of endorphins, serotonin and nor-adrenaline in the central nervous system. There is continuing research on exactly how acupuncture works.
Professor Andrew Jan uses an integrated approach and will advise patients to find the right balance of Western Medicine and Eastern Medicine. Western Medicine has made great advances within the fields of Imaging, Diagnostics, Pharmacology and Surgery and is powered by its scientific basis and evidence based approach. Traditional Chinese medicine manages the whole person and attempts to assist the patient on a journey into integration of body, mind and spirit.
