Welcome to the Burlington Acupuncture Clinic


YIXIN ZHANG has recently introduced HMST in Canada

Yixin Zhang has studied with Prof. Xiuqin Zhang in Beijing, who has combined theories of both Chinese and Western medicine to bring Gua Sha, a Chinese folk medicine scraping technique to a third generation called Holographic Meridian Scraping Therapy (HMST).

Holographic Meridian Scraping Therapy (HMST) is a healing technique used in Asia by practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), in both the clinical setting and in the home, but is little known in the West. HMST can remove blood stagnation, considered to be pathogenic, to promote normal circulation and metabolism. The patient experiences immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chills, cough, congestion, nausea, and so on. HMST is valuable in the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many other acute or chronic disorders.

HMST is a non-invasive treatment that combines the effects of acupuncture, bloodletting and massage. It is a combination of scraping and applying pressure on Holographic areas and the Yin Yang Meridians of the body with a Jade or Buffalo Horn plate to treat disease and facilitate optimal health.

Our modern lifestyle is stressful, fast paced, with environmental pollution so that our bodies are often over- worked. To help combat fatigue and life pressures we are prone to over-eating, over-stimulating and over-medicating ourselves. We may develop “HIGH” diseases, such as HIGH blood pressure, HIGH cholesterol, HIGH blood sugar, HIGH weight and HIGH acid. We may develop these "HIGH" diseases when our lymphatic circulation becomes stagnant due to accumulation of toxins which compromises the cellular function. Adequate lymphatic drainage is essential for good health and avoiding the HIGH diseases.
