"As technology has changed our lifestyles and our ways of communication, our health has been deteriorating at an exponential rate! We've become sedentary and dependent on technology to guide our daily life activities. In doing so, we develop more pains and aches in our bodies. Most patients complain of neck and shoulder pain caused by sitting at the desk all day or always looking down texting. Acupuncture, electro-acupuncture and cupping are great ways to alleviate neck and shoulder pain naturally without taking over-the-counter drugs. Most patients will start getting better after a series of treatments. When pain is relieved, patients learn to take better care of themselves by stretching and become more active to prevent the pain from coming back. I love the fact that acupuncture can demonstrate and help patients to realize the importance of moving and staying active to stay healthy. Don’t let technology get in the way of your health and enjoying life!" -Mei Lin Maunakea

Acupuncture is commonly used for pain management. Interestingly, everyone's pain tolerance varies in great degrees. Some patients can bare their pain for months or even years, but some patients want to get rid of their pain right away either with pain medications or physical therapy. Unfortunately doctors and patients don't think of acupuncture as the first resort. In Chinese Medicine, we call pain a blockage in the Meridian or Channel, so we commonly say that when there is pain, there is a blockage, and when there is no blockage, there will be no pain. I see many patients on a weekly basis who have low back pain with sciatica. In one particular case, after a series of electric-acupuncture treatments, for the first time in many months, the patient was able to pick up her granddaughter and hold her, which gave her immense joy, that is priceless and heart-warming. Being able to improve one's quality of life with acupuncture gives me great pleasure in my profession.Read more
“We are now half way through the year, and how many of your New Year resolutions have you accomplished?! Almost 99% of the time, people have weight loss or achieve better health as one of their New Year resolutions. I wish I had the ‘Magic Needle’ to melt pounds away and restore health…However, auricular acupuncture can help to suppress appetite and increase metabolism. Of course, diet and lifestyle changes are important too! Auricular Acupuncture can also help with smoking cessation and alcohol addiction. Also, the patient must be mentally prepared to quit. Patients who quit also decrease their risk for heart disease and high blood pressure. I have success with patients who are ready and determined to quit smoking. I think it’s quite monumental that Acupuncture can help someone to quit bad habits, because most health issues are caused by repetitive poor choices and bad habits. A major health change starts with one single step, and I am glad to be a part of that journey.”-Mei Lin MaunakeaRead more
