Cupping Makes Weight Loss Easy

No Needles —No Pain —No Hunger —No Risks —No Exercises
Quick! Easy! Safe! Effective!

1. What is cupping therapy?
Cupping therapy is an ancient and effective modality widely used in traditional Chinese medicine over thousands of years in China. The Cup is usually made from bamboo, glass or plastic. Traditionally, by quickly heating the inside of the cup with fire, suction is created on the skin and the cup will adhere to the skin for 15-20 minutes. With the suction, the negative pressure in the cup stimulates the local acupuncture point; to increase qi and blood flow through the meridian, to loosen up local tight muscles, to relieve pain, to detoxify, and to re-balance the relative organ function.
2. How does it help weight control?
For weight control, we usually apply 20-30 different sized cups to the back and front of the body (including arms, body trunk, legs) to stimulate 14 meridians such as Ren, kidney, stomach, spleen, lung, heart, liver, gallbladder, Dai, large intestine, small intestine, Sanjiao, and pericardia. This helps re-balance those organs’ functions, remove water retention, control craving, relieve stress and anxiety, promote bowel movement, detoxify, and, finally, increase body metabolism rates, to decrease weight.
3. Are there any side effects from cupping therapy?
Generally there are no side effects. Most commonly, it may leave temporary cup marks on the skin, which usually happens in the first one or two treatment sessions. The marks will gradually subside and disappear within one to two weeks. Clients who are taking blood thinners or are prone to bleeding are not suitable candidates for cupping therapy. Occasionally the cupping therapy may cause a skin blister if the treatment time is longer than 30 minutes. If a blister occurs, the therapist will simply remove the liquid by sterilized needle and bandage. It may take one week to heal.
4. Does it work effectively and successfully?
Yes!  The average rate of weight loss is one pound per session, 10 to 30 pounds after 10 sessions. Some people may respond more quickly than others.
5. Do I need diet control during cupping weight control?
Yes. We provide a very simple diet guideline, with enough nutrients and energy to guide clients in eating a healthy and balanced diet, to help control weight and achieve their goals.
6. Do I need exercises to help weight control?
Not necessarily! But a proper exercise program will help to achieve goals and promote health. We don’t recommend clients make weight control dependant on an exercise program, because if the client stops exercising, they will gain the weight back quickly.
7. Do I gain weight back after cupping treatment?
No. As long as you follow the diet menu guidance, you will maintain a healthy weight.
8. How much weight could be lost by cupping therapy?
This depends on individual goal, Average  10 to 30 pounds after 10 sessions treatments. This may not seem like a lot compared to crash dieting, but it certainly is a more balanced and holistic health approach. It may take 1-2 years to lose all the weight you’d like, but the odds are that you will keep it off if you do it in a gradual and balanced way. This is not a diet; it is living and being healthy forever.
9. How many sessions do I need for the treatment? How long is each session?
10 sessions are required in the first 10 days, and then 2-3 sessions per week after that. For maintenance treatment, once a week or bi-weekly is acceptable. A session takes about 60 minutes.
One-hour single session: $75/hour   Ten sessions: $700

Is Acupuncture and Moxibustion an Effective Way to Treat Warts?

Oriental Acupuncture as a Treatment for Warts

Acupuncture or “zhen” in Chinese, has recently received accolades for its successful ability to treat a type of wart, called the “flat wart”, a recently published study in the International Journal of Dermatology has found.
Do not confuse flat warts with plantar warts, they are very different.  Flat warts are typically seen in teenagers and children rather than on adults.  Usually clustered together in dozens, sometimes even as many as 100 on one part of the body.  Often times the flat warts are defeated by the immune system with the young person “grows out” of the infection.

Oriental Acupuncture for the Treatment of Plantar Warts

The Acupuncture treatment for plantar warts destroys the infected skin cells.  This is done by having the acupuncture needles inserted into the skin surrounding the wart.  The needles are then used to lift the area around the wart at which point additional needles can be inserted beneath the infection.  Thereby allowing the Chi and the body’s natural defenses to attack and destroy the infection.
In conjunction with acupuncture, we have moxibustion or “jiu” in Chinese.  Often times seen together “zhen jiu” = acupuncture + moxibustion.  Moxibustion is the burning of mugwort to help with the healing process.  You may recall if you’ve never experienced acupuncture yourself, that in some movies when acupuncture is being performed the end of the needles have wisps of smoke rising from them.  The smoke is from the spongy mugwort herb being burned.
In treating plantar warts, often the direct moxibustion method is used in TCM.  The burning mugwort is placed directly on the infected area in a small cone-like shape.  The underlying wart and skin are burned by the moxibustion, which an herbal burn cream is subsequently applied to help with the healing process.

Is Using Acupuncture and Moxibustion an Effective Way to Treat Warts?

The answer is "Yes" , as our acupuncturist Jarry's 26 Clinical experience, he said usually most people will need 6 to 7 treatment sections (45 minutes per section) , and after the treatments, the wart will be gone and usually it won't come back again. That's the difference between the acupuncture/moxibustion treatment for wart removal and the other ways to remove the wart. Lots of other ways like laser wart removal, usually the wart will grow back. Yesterday a 25 year-old young girl walked into our clinic for wart removal treatment. she tried the laser wart removal, but it didn't work very well, it grew back, so she came for acupuncture/moxibustion treatment now. 
For wart removal or other skin problem like Shingles,Eczema or Psoriasis, acupuncture/moxibustion treatment is a great option to choose.

Oct. 18, Sunday afternoon, my husband took me to the Toronto Grace Hospital Rehab Centre to see  Tommy, today is his 37 years old birthday. He found us from internet, so we have never seen  each other until yesterday. All I know about him is from his email and from our acupuncturist Jarry. As they told me that he was deaf and mute, and right side was 100% paralysis, but yesterday what amazed me is that he called my name clearly and he moved his right arm strongly. After last treatment course (7 times treatment section) he could only move his right hand thumb as Jarry told me, which was a significant improvement already for his condition. But during his treatment break period, just as Jarry said more improvements will appear during the break period. And it did happen, I was so impressed by that. Even Jarry was very surprised by Tommy's significant improvements. He did respond very well from the acupuncture treatment. We are all so happy for him. Now Tommy is accepting his second course treatment from our other acupuncturist Jenny(Sujia) Wang. With her strong experience in physical centre, I am sure that Tommy will benefits from her both acupuncture and physio therapy.  Best wishes to Tommy and Happy birthday to him. We are all looking forward to more improvements on him. And as a team, we are all here to try our best!

Acupuncture for Depression (Natural Therapy for chronic anxiety)

Approximately 4 million Canadians suffer with chronic anxiety or depression. One out of eight adults are currently taking antidepressant medications. While these medications can offer support and benefit on certain occasions, there are indeed many people that do not respond well to this form of treatment. This can be due to a number of factors including: 

  • Various side effects that outweigh the benefits of the medication 
  • A developed tolerance to the medication that causes the benefits to diminish 
  • Excessive sensitivty to the concentrated nature of these medications 
  • A belief system that suggests that the depression is not due to a biochemical imbalance, or that this imbalance is the result of a deeper spiritual issue 

we have a number of patients who were convinced that they had run out of options after finding medications and/or talk therapy to be ineffective for their needs. Many of these people try acupuncture as a last resort. and from numerous patients who suffer from chronic depression,we have proved that acupuncture, nutritional supplemenation, meditation, and yoga can offer tremendously helpful support in healing the root causes of this epidemic. This approach is much more comprehensive and much less invasive to the brain that using SSRI medications. It accounts for not only biochemical factors, but also energetic, nutritional, and spiritual influences as well.


Practiced for over 2,500 years, acupuncture is a branch of Chinese medicine that treats the energetic level of the human body/mind. As surprising as it is to most people, acupuncture is usually a profoundly relaxing experience that establishes a deep quality of restoration and balance to the central nervous system. Most people feel altered, floaty, dreamy, or sleepy after treatment. This feeling tends to stick around for a few hours after the treatment and becomes a more continuous experience with repetitive treatment. Acupuncture works by balancing the flow of Qi, or internal life force, in the body. Anxiety is typically a byproduct of weak Qi in the heart or kidneys. Other symptoms such as low back pain, heart palpitations, insomnia, irritability, or nightmares commonly accompany the depression.


 Some these herbs can be helpful. Here is a brief list of herbs that can be bought at the local health food store: 
  • St. John's wort 
  • gingko biloba 
  • rhodiola rosea 
  • siberian ginseng

One of the most important considerations here is to maintain stable blood sugar throughout the day. The majority of anxiety patients suffer from hypoglycemia. They tend to eat refined carbohydrates and/or drink coffee to start the day, only to experience the typical 'crash' around 2-4pm. To keep the blood sugar stable, begin the day with a high protein breakfast such as eggs, turkey bacon, whole oats, or smoothies with whey or goat protein in them. Eat a low glycemic snack every 2-3 hours. Avoid coffee and other forms of caffeine. It can also be revealing to avoid allergenic foods such as wheat, gluten, pasteurized dairy, and refined sugar for one month to see if the depression significantly improves. Here is a brief list of nutritional supplements that can be very helpful in treating depression: 
  • 5HTP 
  • SAMe 
  • Fish oil 
  • B vitamin complex
Meditation and Yoga 

Many people find meditation and yoga to be their most powerful allies in healing depression. With regular practice of various breathing techniques and yoga postures, people often feel that they have much more control over the depression and that it need not run their life anymore. These practices can be direct gateways to the rest and restore mode of the nervous system. On a deeper level, they can help us forge a spiritual connection with our lives that instills an unshakable sense of trust and safety in the workings of the universe.

From a holistive perspective, our symptoms are never random. There is always a reason why they creep up. In the case of depression, it is helpful to disengage from our personal feelings about it and look at the bigger picture. What is the depression telling us about ourselves and where we are at in life? Is it a warning sign that something is amiss and needs to be acknowledged or changed? In any regard, the practices mentioned here can offer a profound level of support in getting to the root of the problem and inducing a gentle course in a new direction of inspiration and insight.
Oriental Acupuncture Clinic Jarry(Chinese acupuncturist since 1989) has so many successful cases in treating depression,insomnia,'s one of his successful cases.
