HMA (Holographic Meridian Acupuncture)

There are many different styles of acupuncture that have developed in China, Japan, Korea, and recently in England and France. In the United States, all of these styles can be found, as well as uniquely American syntheses of the various approaches.


All of the styles (with the exception of a new medical acupuncture system based on modern neurology and physiology) are based on common principles. Fundamentally, health and disease are a reflection of the status of qi in the body. Qi, which is the body’s bio-energy, flows sequentially through 12 primary channels on each side of the body. Each channel feeds a primary organ (e.g. lung, heart, spleen-pancreas, kidney, etc.) as well as the musculoskeletal structures along its path. The qi of the channel keeps all tissue along its path healthy and vibrant. The lion’s share of a channel’s qi goes to its designated organ, allowing for the healthy and normal functioning of that organ. Health is the maintenance of good quality qi and good circulation of qi and blood throughout the body, so that all the organs may function optimally.

After having studied with many masters around the world, Dr. Jay has established a unique form of effective acupuncture style that he has named HMA (Holographic Meridian Acupuncture). In the HMA system, he identifies which organs and vital energy pathways (meridians) are causing a patient’s symptoms. He then carefully selects 2-3 points on 3 different meridians and inserts 6-9 needles into the patient’s body very gently.

 

For instance, if a patient complains of dizziness, short temper, low energy, stiffness on the shoulder and the upper back, hormonal discomfort and etc., he will determine that the vital energy from the liver of the patient is mainly causing these issues. According to HMA system, 2-3 needles will be gently inserted on the Gallbladder meridian, the Pericardium meridian and the Large Intestine meridian, based on very specific holographic anatomical acupoint physiology. This style of acupuncture is not found in any school of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In most cases, the patient will experience almost immediate relief from main discomfort within a few minutes, if not a few seconds.
