I was born into a family of eight generations of Chinese medical doctors. Since my childhood, carrying the family tradition and becoming an acupuncturist was my destination. I grew up around and learned a lot from my late grandfather, Professor Meishen Zhou, who was a very well known Chinese medical doctor and acupuncturist throughout China and Southeastern Asian countries. After I worked as a Medical Doctor in China for a few years, I have been enjoying teaching and practicing acupuncture and Chinese medicine in the United States since 1995.

I am Jingyu Gu, PhD & Lic. Acu. My acupuncture practice started in 1972 in Shanghai. I founded the Taiji & Qigong Meditation Center and Wellspring Acupuncture & Holistic Health Clinic. My patients receive not only standard acupuncture and herbal treatments but also instruction on therapeutic taiji and qigong exercises. This harmonious and holistic treatment paradigm is the highest often hard-to-reach level of therapy in the TCM tradition. I taught these subjects in the Texas College of TCM (TX Health & Science Univ.) as well to acupuncturists for their CEU and served on the Texas State Board of Acupuncture Examiners for 5 years.

Acupuncture in Manor - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Manor acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
