Instructional videos

This is a list of YouTube videos under the title “American Style Acupuncture”. They are the recordings from a series of talks to acupuncture students. I called them the ” American Style” because the practice is different from current popular Chinese style, Japanese Style or Korean style.

The main difference from these aforementioned styles lies in the foundation of the practice for resolving the pain, specifically the muscle related pain. While all the other style relies on the mystical “Qi”, our style is based on the physiology of nerves and muscles to resolve the disorderly muscle tension. The inner working will be discussed in detail in another website dedicated on the practice of American Style Acupuncture.
