Acupuncture by Chang Shih

“I’ve had acupuncture before, but I have never seen this unique blend of treatment where manual therapies are incorporated into acupuncture…”

Early on in my practice when I treated patients for musculoskeletal pain, I almost always noticed that their pain was the result of their postural misalignment. With acupuncture, patients found relief from their pain, but the postural misalignment remain unchanged.

Inevitably, the same problem would reoccur a short while later. It made no sense to only treat the pain whilst the root cause of the issue remained ignored. Something was missing, and I wanted to develop a better approach.

Craniosacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation techniques broadened my technical skillset and pivotally shifted how I practice. Integrating these techniques into a holistic treatment benefitted patients with the best each modality has to offer.

Taking this integrative approach to my acupuncture treatments, I see improvements in patients’ postural alignment, and with it longer relief of their chronic musculoskeletal pain.
