Ching-Hsin (Kelly) Hsu, Acupuncture Therapist

Acupuncture Therapist St. John's NL

Ching-Hsin (Kelly) Hsu graduated from China Medical University (Taichung City, Taiwan) in 2019 with a degree in the Traditional Medicine Program. This seven year program provided extensive training in both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture, consolidated during internship in Taipei City Hospital, volunteer work in remote areas and most recently in private practice in Taiwan.

For clients with muscle and joint injuries and pain conditions, acupuncture provides another dimension to care, both of diagnosis and of benefit. Acupuncture restores and rebalances energy channels within the body and relieves pain. It complements the biomodulation effect of laser (which increases the availability of ATP to injured cells), the hands-on techniques of massage therapists and the muscle rehab efforts of physiotherapy. Such collaborative care is of particular benefit to clients with slow to heal or chronic pain conditions, such as frozen shoulder, sciatica, post-stroke care and those with long Covid issues, etc.

Within the Traditional Medicine Program, there was much focus on the management of life-style diseases, those medical disorders thought to be produced by or exacerbated by aspects of a person’s lifestyle, such as diet, work environment or physical activity. Anxiety, allergies, arthritis, tinnitus and hearing loss, GERD, irritable bowel syndrome, menstrual disorders, and incontinence are but a few of the common conditions that benefit from traditional acupuncture. There are many other conditions for which TCM and acupuncture provide treatment options and benefits.

Kelly is a member in good standing of both The College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Newfoundland and Labrador (CTCMPANL) and of the Newfoundland and Labrador Council of Health Professionals (NLCHP).
