It’s been 10 years since Dr. Yushu Cheng first opened the doors to the Acupuncture Clinic and with an anniversary and a new year underway, Cheng is taking the opportunity to thank Los Alamos residents and wish them a Happy New Year.
It’s been a busy 10 years for Cheng. “Every year we treat lots of different cases,” she said. “Mostly they are pain, muscle pain, nerve pain, joint pain (and) many different kinds of pain. Also we treat traumatology problems, internal medical disease, dermatology disease, genecology problems.”
Cheng treats these ailments through acupuncture, Chinese herbs and Chinese Tui Na massage.
Acupuncture, she explained works by balancing the body’s yin-yang. Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine take a holistic, or whole–body approach to health. From a TCM (tradition Chinese medicine) point of view, the root cause of diseases is imbalances body’s yin and yang.
From a Western medicine point of view, in acupuncture, needles are used to move blood circulation, as well as change pH levels and chemistry on the body.
Cheng became interested in acupuncture because “When I was 7-years-old, I got headaches. I was treated by acupuncture,” she said. “My headaches got much better (after getting) acupuncture.”
