Why you should choose us
Ms. Liu studied acupuncture for 5 years at Hunan University Of Chinese Medicine, one of the most prestigious programs in China. After receiving her degree in acupuncture, she practiced for 4 years at the Second Hospital of Hunan University of Chinese Medicine in 1994. Since then, she has continued to expand her knowledge and skills to create her own and unique treatment system (and here we could repeat some of the material from the home page).
Ms. Liu has been practicing acupuncture and traditional Chinese Medicine at the Queen Elizabeth Health Complex in Montreal since 1997. After treating hundreds of patients a year, she has developed a wide range of diagnostic and treatment tools for dealing with many of today’s common complaints. Perhaps more importantly, she has also developed techniques for diagnosing and treating complaints and conditions that are resistant to standard medical interventions. Because Traditional Chinese Medicine considers the whole person – body, mind, spirit and emotions -- this unique approach can bring results wither other treatment methods have failed.
Blood tests and x-rays can reveal many things, but often it takes a skilled diagnostician to reveal the underlying reasons for an illness or condition. At our clinic, we combine the tools of western medicine – including your medical history and medications -- with the ancient diagnostic tools of Chinese medicine. Depending on the problem, Ms. Liu can assess a patient’s internal condition based on her readings of the tongue and pulse, combined with close observation of external clues. After treating many hundreds of patients, she has also developed the rare ability to ‘feel’ the progress of the treatment plan through subtle changes in the tissues just under the skin.
Many of Ms. Liu’s patients are referred to her by their GPs because she has earned a reputation for working effectively alongside western health care treatments to manage pain and reduce the need for pharmaceutical intervention. Others learn about her by word of mouth from the many satisfied patients she has treated over the past 20 years.
Ms. Liu is committed to working in collaboration with you and your health care team to ensure that your health care treatments operate in harmony. And in many cases, she will be able to provide you with advice and perhaps acupressure techniques that will keep your treatment moving forward between visits to the clinic. Meanwhile, our clinic has other skilled practitioners able to offer massage, osteopathic treatments, and other approaches that can enhance your health.
What our patients say
I suffered immensely from what appeared to be trigemenal neuralgia. After spending many hours in various clinics and lots of money on different drugs the suffering continued. I opted for acupuncture. Xiaoyang Liu miraculously took the pain away in no time. The entire process was relaxing and pain-free and after a few sessions, I felt safe to say I was all well.
At age 12, my son was still wetting his bed. After trying everything, I took him to Xiaoyang Liu. Her acupuncture treatment ended his condition in three sessions. To this day, he remains dry.
