Currently at Acupuntura Holistica our resident Acupuncturist is Allan McKenzie, a graduate of Shenzhou Open University, Amsterdam, Netherlands. He has studied for 3 years Traditional Chinese Medicine and graduated with a diploma specializing in Acupuncture. Part of his training included 2 years Western Medicine and additional courses in Cosmetic Acupuncture and basic First Aid training.
His method of treatment is a holistic one, this means he does a whole body acupuncture treatment. When necessary, he enhances his treatment by applying Ear Acupuncture, Electro-Acupuncture and Moxibustion.
Yin and Yang, action and reaction, to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, day and night, left and right, white and black, front and back, up and down, north and south, east and west, etc. These phenomena exist all around us and they all belong to the principle of dualism which is basically a concept of harmonizing and balancing of phenomena.
The principle of dualism sustains the existence of all types of phenomena i.e. systems. This can be found in social order, environmental changes, human body systems, etc.
If one looks at any man made systems, for example a car, in order for it to work properly, it has to have regular checkups, use the right combustible fluid, the right oil etc. but when it comes to our body, not many people take care of their body. Our body also needs regular checkups, proper food, proper care, regular exercise, etc. in order to function efficiently and disease free.
Acupuntura Holistica’s mission is to offer patients holistic acupuncture treatments in order to harmonize and re-balance qi, blood and body fluids in their body so that they can live a healthy life.
