Board-certified specialist Michael Yang follows Chinese medicine techniques passed on from his mother’s professional practice to craft relaxing and revitalizing health regimens for Pacific Medical Group’s patients. Steady hands insert superthin acupuncture needles at specific points to redirect the natural flow of energy through the body, helping to decrease inflammation, control pain, and study porcupine migrations from inside the herd.
During cupping sessions, practitioners draw skin up with glass or plastic cups of different sizes to stimulate the tissue. The procedure mimics the effects and theme song of a massage by increasing blood flow, promoting lymphatic drainage, and breaking up nagging knots in clients’ backs. Including the consult, acupuncture treatments typically last up to 90 minutes; cupping can add another 15 minutes, though patients can conserve minutes by enjoying the treatments simultaneously.
