Eric Weiss, Licensed Acupuncturist
Twenty-eight years ago, upon leaving the hospital following a serious illness, I was advised by my GP to consult a Chinese Medical Doctor for support in completing my recovery. Good fortune led me to the remarkable 10th generation Chinese Medical Doctor Dr. Lam Kong, and my life changed.
Inspired by my own experience of Chinese Medicine, I spent the next six years studying Traditional Chinese Medicine, under the guidance of Dr Kongs . After I received my Medical diploma I spent part of the next year practicing in Asia, then returned to the US where I practiced for fifteen years before relocating to Edmonton in 2006. I have treated over 14,000 patients over the past 20 years.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a time proven system. TCM is based on natural laws that exist in the natural world around us and inside of us. The ancients developed keen perception of the relationship between the outer and inner environment. These natural laws have been refined for THOUSANDS of years and currently continue to be refined today. TCM uses Acupuncture(hair thin needles) and herbs(minerals) in a synergistic harmony to strengthen, balance and detoxify your personal ecological environment. All treatments are based on a real time individual assessment. What ever lacks harmony, will not endure.
Live Blood Cell Microscopy
I’ve always been keenly interested in basic elements of the body and how they work together in harmony to create and sustain health. I am fascinated by the living microcosmic perspective that new technologies like Live Blood Cell Microscopy provide. The arteries and veins are the largest organ in the body. They travel through nearly one hundred thousand miles of veins, arteries and capillaries, carrying nutrients and manifesting the immune response. We can see all the elements of health and ill health in the blood stream. If your blood is not healthy, you are not healthy.
I am excited to blend the time-tested methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine with newer techniques to achieve a more comprehensive picture of health and how it is naturally improved.
