Funny Acupuncture Video... What to expect on your first acupuncture visit with me!

I received this funny acupuncture video from a friend recently.  I'm not sure what the commercial is trying to sell, but it sure is funny.

This video highlights the many misconceptions of acupuncture, such as:
- a crazy old man speaking a foreign language and yelling at you
- the treatment is done in a dingy apartment
- all clothing is removed
- hundreds of needles are used

In the near future, i'll create a video showing what you should expect during an acupuncture visit at my clinic.

In the meantime, Enjoy the video!

P.S. In case you are wondering, I tend to use many more acupuncture needles than that.  ;)

Sports Injuries, Athletes & Low-Level Laser Therapy

As many of my patients know, I play a variety of sports. I grew up playing tennis, soccer and ice hockey.

During my more daring years, my sport of choice was bombing down trails on my dual-suspension mountain bike or trying to catch big air on my snowboard. Needless to say, I got injured a lot.

My love of sports and my experience with injuries have shaped the way I practice medicine. I work with many athletes and I treat sports injuries. I get the best results using a combination of acupuncture and low-level laser therapy on acute sports injuries- from sprains, strains, tears and fractures.

On my recent trip to the Meditech clinic in Toronto, I learned that professional athletes are using low-level laser therapy to treat their injuries. Teams such as the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, and Miami Heat all have the Bioflex professional system in their rehabilitation facilities.

The video clip below features Antonio Davis from the Toronto Raptors and how he recovered from a Tricep muscle injury using low-level laser therapy. 

I only wished that low-level laser therapy was around when I had all my injuries!

Welcome To The Official Dr. Jeffrey Lee Blog

As a physician, my mission is to make a positive impact with every person I interact with.  A positive impact may be relieving a patient from pain or treating their digestive problems.  It can be giving a word of encouragement or making them laugh when life is hard.

So what does being healthy mean?
  • is it simply free of disease or free of pain?
  • is it being balanced physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually?
  • is it what’s represented in a lab test?
Let’s explore this together...
