Motion Acupuncture in Canada 2024

【New York News】The 2024 AACMC Canada International Conference on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture was successfully held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on June 8-9. Co-hosted by the Canadian Alliance of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Boucher Institute of Oriental Medicine, and the Edmonton University Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic, the conference was chaired by Dr. Jiulin Wang, Vice Professor of Acupuncture at McMaster University and Director of the Boucher Institute of Oriental Medicine, Dr. Wenkai Zhang, President of the Edmonton University Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic, and Dr. Guojian Huang, President of the Canadian Alliance of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Canadian Prime Minister sent a congratulatory letter to the conference. Dr. Fulun Wang, Chairman of the Boucher Institute of Oriental Medicine, officially opened the conference and delivered a welcome speech, while Edmonton City Councillor Jennifer Rice attended the event on behalf of the local government to congratulate the organizers. Over 150 experts, scholars, and practitioners from around the world gathered to discuss the relationship between fascia and pain, and how traditional Chinese medicine acupuncture can be applied to adjust fascia and improve pain, benefiting the health of Canadians. Thirteen experts presented their latest research findings. Professor Jishun Hao, Dr. Guojian Huang, Dr. Decheng Chen, Professor Tong Li, and Dr. David Lesondak conducted workshops on scalp acupuncture, mini-blade acupuncture, motion acupuncture, acupuncture for aesthetics, and fascial techniques, providing valuable learning and exchange opportunities for acupuncture practitioners, massage therapists, and students from Alberta and beyond.

After the academic exchange on June 8th, Dr. Decheng Chen, the inventor of motion acupuncture, conducted a one-day training session on motion acupuncture therapy for some participants on June 9th. The training covered essential aspects of medical learning and practical exercises in motion acupuncture, including five main parts: motion acupuncture points, motion acupuncture needles, motion acupuncture techniques, motion acupuncture status, and motion acupuncture mechanism. During the practical session, volunteers among the participants were randomly selected, each with various pains. For instance, some had neck pain and were unable to lower or raise their heads due to years of diagnosed cervical spondylosis by Western medicine. Despite undergoing acupuncture, massage, and physical therapy without significant improvement, Dr. Chen unexpectedly resolved their long-standing issues using just 2-3 motion acupuncture needles.

There was also someone with neck pain who had been unable to rotate their head to the right for a long time, which posed a danger while driving as they couldn’t check their blind spot to the right. After a few minutes of motion acupuncture treatment, their ability to turn their head noticeably improved.

There was another student with chronic shoulder pain, suffering from adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) with severe pain. Their arm couldn’t extend forward or outward due to significant restriction in shoulder joint movement. Using only two 3-inch motion acupuncture needles, Dr. Chen treated them for a few minutes. After the treatment, there was a noticeable improvement in shoulder mobility. The range of motion for arm flexion and abduction increased significantly.

There was another student who had long-term lower back pain and couldn’t bend forward properly. Before treatment, when bending forward, their fingertips could only reach about 6 inches above their ankles. Dr. Chen used three motion acupuncture needles at the gluteus maximus and lumbar fascia muscles. After the treatment, they could immediately touch the floor when bending forward.

There was also a senior TCM practitioner who had suffered from piriformis syndrome for decades, having tried various treatments without success. Today, she decided to try motion acupuncture and was pleasantly surprised by the results. Previously unable to touch the floor when bending forward, after the motion acupuncture treatment, not only did the pain in her hip area noticeably decrease, but she could also touch the floor with both hands while bending over. Everyone present was amazed by the outcome.

There was also a senior doctor who had knee joint pain and had been unable to squat. With motion acupuncture treatment, they were immediately able to squat fully.

A family member of one of the students had long-term lower back pain that was unresponsive to various treatments. Dr. Chen diagnosed it as a psoas major muscle injury. He administered one needle each in the abdomen and small trochanter, resulting in significant relief of lower back pain. Immediately after the treatment, the angle of leg elevation also improved.

One of the most remarkable cases was a student’s son who had developed spinal curvature and uneven shoulders due to prolonged poor sitting posture. After Dr. Chen administered three motion acupuncture needles, miraculously, the two scapulae aligned perfectly!

The contrasting effectiveness of the treatments in these cases left all the attending students deeply impressed. They truly experienced the powerful impact of motion acupuncture. Applause frequently erupted at the treatment site, with heartfelt exclamations from the students: “easy to learn, quick to work!”
