My mission is to activate your normal heali

Dr. Zhongmin Mao uses acupuncture to activate healing

By KATHRYN RIDDLE

    “My mission is to activate your normal healing ability,” said Dr. Zhongmin Mao, the licensed acupuncturist who for the past six years has practiced at The Lu-Jean Feng Clinic in Pepper Pike.
    When he was a teenager, Dr. Mao saw his father’s frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) healed with acupuncture and decided that was what he wanted to learn to do. He began reading and learning theory from TCM masters in Beijing even before going to college. He specialized in Traditional Chinese Medicine, majoring in acupuncture and moxibustion (a TCM technique of burning mugwort to facilitate healing), at Beijing University. Before joining The Feng Clinic, Dr. Mao had nearly 20 years’ experience working in China and Israel prior to immigrating to the United States.
    Acupuncture, developed in China more than 3,500 years ago, involves the use of hair-thin sterilized needles to prick the skin on the body. The body has 12 different pathways called meridians through which positive energy flows. There is a Chinese name, said Dr. Mao, for every meridian channel and for acupoints throughout the body. There are points on the soles of our feet, palms of our hands and in our ears that relate to our bodies and organs. Illness or disorder impede and block the flow of a body’s positive energy; “the energy stagnates,” said Dr. Mao. “Acupuncture drives out the bad energy, breaks the negative cycle, in order for the body to create new energy.”
    Dr. Mao has successfully used acupuncture in treating conditions and disorders such as insomnia, migraine headaches, depression, appetite suppression, smoking cessation and even infertility. Among the most significant results from the effective use of acupuncture has been with Dr. Mao’s patients who are undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer.
    “Acupuncture helps to assist with chemotherapy before the patient has it,” said Dr. Mao, “and afterwards their recovery is faster with no rebound. It helps the recovery of the immune system with no side effect.”
    No matter what relief or help a person needs, Dr. Mao said that a patient’s “only mission here is to relax. Make your mind free from your body — when your mind relaxes your body relaxes. Your body will feel soft; follow your body not your mind.”
    The human body, said Dr. Mao, “has strong healing ability when you allow it to use your own good energy to fight the bad.”
