ABOUT JANE P.W CHAN

 

Hello, my name is Jane Chan. My goal is to provide health care that will assist and prevent disease using a holistic health principles with modern and scientific approach. 


​I discovered the benefits of Acupuncture in my early years as I was suffering from chronic lower back pain. Acupuncture was able to provide me the solution that I was looking for, not only it provided me with a holistic health approach, it also provided an immediate pain relief without the use of pain medication. 


I become fascinated about acupuncture and how it can benefit my health in general. Since then my family and I have been using Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine as a form of preventative, maintenance and treatment for our health. 


Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine is an old medicine which is based on a holistic approach that has been used for thousand of years.

For the past many years we have seen science unlocking the benefits of this old medicine by conducting pharmacological research on Chinese herbal medicine, running clinical trials on acupuncture to provide an evidence based protocol.

My Area of Interest is as follow:

- Women’s health.

- Pain related disorders.

- Stress management.

- Fertility Support. 

- Post Stroke/Operative rehabilitation.

- Neurological disorders.

- Autoimmune disorders. 

- Adjacent Cancer Care.  


HOW DOES SCALP ACUPUNCTURE HELP WITH NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS?


I love participating in ongoing professional education to further my expertise every year. This allows me to keep up-to-date with the latest research on acupuncture, cold laser and Chinese herbal medicine.

You will notice during Acupuncture treatment the use of Moxa, Cupping, Infra-red Heat Lamp, oils might also be used if I find it is needed.


I'm a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society, and registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia / Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an age-proven, efficient and natural form of healing and treatment of illness and disease. It is one of the most popular techniques of Chinese Medicine, used by many different and diverse people.


Acupuncture involves the stimulation of certain acupoints on the body with very fine, sterile, disposable needles.  This practice of Chinese Medicine takes a holistic approach to balancing health throughout your body. 

Each treatment lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Heat stimulation and cupping may be used together with the needles in order to boost the efficacy of healing.


HOW  DOES ACUPUNCTURE AFFECT THE BODY?

Acupuncture points are believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes may stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.

DRY NEEDLING VS ACUPUNCTURE?

Are you surprised that your Acupuncturist can also perform Dry Needling? 


Well we can!  The reason being is that both methods uses the same tool of trade to treat muscular and pain disorders. 

So, your acupuncturist has already study intensively (4 years degree) to how and why needles are so effective when it comes to dealing with those issues. 

On the other hand, the person who performs dry needling (short courses) do not have the intense training and knowledge to use needles to treat the many disorders that can benefits from Acupuncture.


Australian research shows that practitioners who have undertaken short courses such as dry needling have more than double the rate of adverse events than fully qualified acupuncture practitioners. It’s important to be aware that the Health Practitioner National Law Act only allows practitioners registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) (www.chinesemedicineboard.gov.au) to use the title ‘registered acupuncturist’. 

It does not stop anyone offering ‘dry needling’ services, whether they are registered or not.

It has been very exciting to see how science has help unlock the benefits of acupuncture by running clinical trials using evidence-based protocol. Some Clinical trials includes the use of Acupuncture for cancer patient who is experiencing pain. 


HOW ACUPUNCTURE TREATS CANCER PAIN: BIOLOGICAL MECHANISMS

(https://www.evidencebasedacupuncture.org/acupuncture-cancer-pain/)

Acupuncture’s mechanisms for treating cancer pain are thought to be similar to those for treating other painful conditions, whether the pain is categorised as acute or chronic.

These mechanisms have been researched extensively for over 60 years, and while there is still much left to learn about acupuncture mechanisms and the human body in general, the neural pathways from acupuncture point stimulation to the spinal cord and then to the deactivation of the pain centres in the brain have been mapped.8 9 Acupuncture has been demonstrated to activate a number of the body’s own opioids as well as improve the brain’s sensitivity to opioids.10 A number of other biochemicals involved in pain reduction have been found to be released and regulated by acupuncture stimulation, including ATP, adenosine, GABA and substance P.11 Acupuncture has also been demonstrated to reduce activity in the parts of the brain associated with the perception of pain and increase activity in brain areas associated with improved self-regulation.12


Refer to a study on the review and analysis on controlled clinical trials of diseases and disorders that can be treated with acupuncture Published by World Health Organization.

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is another age-old proven medicine treatment which has been used for over 2500 years. Chinese herbal medicine is a natural and refined way of using herbal products to promote health and overcome disease. Traditionally, Chinese herbal medicine uses a variety of different ingredients to brew a strong tea.

A typical herbal formula may be comprised of somewhere between 5 to 20 Chinese herbs, skillfully combined to create a well balanced, targeted formula to suit the patient.

Concentrated Herbal Granules are used in our clinic. Its manufactured in a carefully controlled process that begins by cooking raw herbs in water until a concentrated liquid is obtained. A special extraction method captures and preserves the volatile oils, which are later added back to the herb product. 

State of the art testing is performed on the herbal granules during manufacturing stage and only those passing high standards for safety and efficacy are used. Laboratory tests check for potential microbes such as E. coli, salmonella and other contaminants. 

Gas Chromatography (GC) testing is used to detect potentially harmful pesticides and herbicides, Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) assesses the concentration of heavy metals, and High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) measures the potency of active ingredients.


I use Herbal Granules which has been manufactured according to GMP 

(Good Manufacturing Practice) and also Australia TGA approved.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy, or laser therapy that uses low levels of light to stimulate healing. Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, it does not cause your tissues to heat up and therefore provides a safe, painless and efficient form of therapy for patients.

Cold laser therapy is sometimes called low-level laser therapy (LLLT), low-power laser therapy (LPLT), or soft laser. In Cold Laser therapy, a low-level light is applied directly to a problem area, usually an area afflicted by pain or inflammation. Tissues absorb the light, which leads damaged cells to have a physiological reaction to the red and infrared light. This reaction happens on biological and chemical level which promotes the regeneration of damaged cells. 

Cold laser therapy is used as a safe, efficient and painless treatment for tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair, relief from pain and inflammation.


Cupping and Moxa is also use within my practice.
