Frequently Asked Questions

How is YSY Therapy different from acupuncture?

While both acupuncture and YSY Therapy are based on the meridian theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine, YSY Therapy is a safer procedure that reduces one's risk of infection as its practitioners use bare hands to perform treatments. It is generally advised that infants, adolescents and pregnant women not receive acupuncture treatment. However, YSY Therapy works well for people regardless of their age or physical condition.

YSY Therapy is performed with hands only - the practitioner gently manipulates a patient's soft tissues. This not only increases the accuracy of detecting energy and meridian conditions, but also avoids physical reactions to needles such as fainting or allergic reactions.

YSY Therapy treats the whole body as it stimulates most acupoints on major meridians to promote overall energy flow. In contrast, acupuncture treatments involve a limited number of needle insertions affecting only some acupoints, instead of the entire meridian system.

How is YSY Therapy different from other types of bodywork?

The integration of Western and Chinese medical theories in YSY Therapy allows comprehensive understanding and analysis of one's body, while most other bodywork techniques do not require their practitioners to obtain advanced training in Western medicine. In addition, YSY Therapy is founded on the principle that one's wellbeing is determined by the interaction between the body and mind. YSY Therapy provides both physical and emotional detoxification.   Finally, YSY Therapists initiate a long-lasting energy flow by stimulating a patient's meridians in certain directions. Healing energy continues to unblock meridians even days or weeks after receiving treatment.
