Rong-Chuan (Jane) Hsu, R.TCM.P.
Registered Acupuncturist & Herbalist
As a practicing physician in internal medicine for twenty years in Taiwan, Jane encountered hundreds of patients daily. She enjoyed helping her patients, and she especially cherished the professional, yet friendly, relationships she developed with them as well as their families over the years. Her source of happiness was seeing her patients smiles after recovering from illness and being relieved from their suffering. In this way, her profession was rewarding and meaningful.
Jane is particularly fond of the Chinese medicine philosophy where each human being is different, and the treatments are individualized based on the body types and the needs of the clients. The same condition may be approached differently in different individuals. She spent four years studying Chinese medicine, and she had helped herself, friends and family to alleviate illness, such as headaches, respiratory diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, arthritis, joint sprains, menstrual cramps and postmenopausal symptoms in women. Besides the physical symptoms, she also helped individuals with psychological problems with Chinese medicine, such as anxiety, depression, insomnia and stress. The combination of this theoretical knowledge and her clinical experience provides her with advance skills and confidence to help her clients.
Familiar with various treatment techniques such as cupping, moxibustion, electric stimulation, Mei Hua needle and Seven Star needle, Jane is also is skillful in acupuncture techniques such as body acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, ear acupuncture, abdomen acupuncture, navel acupuncture and Don Shi acupuncture. Utilizing the holography theory, she selects different techniques based on the clients’ body type and disease state. In addition to the treatments, she also provides recommendation on diet and lifestyle modification to enhance the treatment outcome.
Jane’s background in western medicine allows her to consider the limitations in both Western and Chinese medicine. This forms the bases of her unique approach of her treatment techniques, where she finds the fine balance between Western and Chinese medicine. By recommending her clients to treat acute conditions with Western medicine and utilize Chinese medicine for the root of the illness, Jane provides the outcome of optimal health for her clients.
