Why does acupuncture work: Leading PA expert weighs in on the benefits of acupuncture

One of the oldest forms of medicine currently practiced in the world  today. Acupuncture is the placement of needles slightly beneath the skin with the intention of re-directing life energy or Qi. The basic tenet of Chinese medicine is that your personal life energy or Qi travels along“meridians” or channels in your body and when that flow is interrupted or the pathway is changed, disease or pain may result. Acupuncture treatment seeks to restore the natural balance in your Qi and thus restore balance to the part of the body that has been affected.

Acupuncture is most commonly used to heal chronic pain of the joints or muscles, headaches, and systemic illnesses of the body. It has also been used to help with weight loss and weight management, recovery from additions, and may other difficulties. If you have a medical or personal issue and cannot seem to find help, call us to find out if acupuncture is for you.

Dr. Danny T Khounh is an Acupuncturist and a Research Scientist with  over 20 years of experience in research and development for drug discovery as well as in clinical research. He was exposed to alternative medicine at a very young age being a son of a medicine man of the town and a midwife and healer in Cambodia. His parents only used herbs and other natural healing methods to treat ailing people. Danny was able to see and experience the power of alternative medicine. He had the opportunity to learn some of the art from his parents. When he came to the US, he was driven to help people in as many ways as
possible so he started on his journey with science.

He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in biology (premed) from Cabrini College and started his research and development in a biotech company. Instead of going to allopathic medicine, he chose to pursuit his graduate school in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Texas Health and Science University. This was what he was looking for to fulfill his desire to follow in his father’s footsteps and to satisfy his desire to heal people. As he continued his scientific career and in 2002, he graduated from Texas Health and Science University which manifested as his passion and establishment of his career in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Dr Khounh recently aquired his doctorate in acupuncture and oriental medicine intergating eastern and western medicine to address the whole human body.  He has taken two completely different strategies of his career path and found an understanding that guides healing in a new way.

All in all, Dr. Khounh’s goal is to bring the eastern and western disciplines together to heal his patients effectively in a natural way.
