Holistic Healing of Chronic Disorders True healing of any chronic conditions starts with identifying the root causes, then follow a particular treatment plan to reduce the root causes and the symptoms at the same time. That way, the symptoms will be under control and eventually diminish when the condition is cured completely.
Development and Healing Process of Chronic Disorders In the very early stage of the development of a chronic condition, one must be exposed to a poor life style, encounter a physical or emotional trauma, or inherit a weakness from one’s ancestors. With poor life style and aging, one’s energy can fall into the sick zone. In almost all cases, patients do not recognize the development of a disorder until symptoms manifest. At this time, patients may begin a search for a medical treatment.
Invest in Your Health In today’s world, most people are concerned about the cost of medical care.  But what many of us forget is that the return from a medical treatment that generates healing and improved health is an investment in life. How can we begin to measure the potential savings on medical fees at retirement? How does one measure the value of pain free walking compared to walking with the severe pain of osteoarthritis? Or what about the value of having a fun shopping day at the mall without the need to constantly find a restroom because of a frequent urination condition?  Investing in your health and obtaining effective medical treatments is one of the best investments you can make to improve and prolong the quality of your life.

The Best of both Worlds

Jing - Essence

Qi - Energy

Shen - Spirit

Owen Liao, Ph.D. brings numerous Eastern perspectives (Qigong healer and Tai Chi Master) to his 15+ years of practice as a Licensed Acupuncturist. This method of health care allows Dr. Liao to share insights and ideas with his clients on wellness so that they can obtain a deeper integrated understanding of their health as they go through the healing process. Although his academic training shows through his logical and systematic acupuncture treatments it is his combined personal care for the people he treats that separates from other practitioners.

One more point must be made. Few areas like the present topic so vividly demonstrate the separateness and compartmentalization of Western approaches to the mind-body-spirit healing synergy and the contrast with Eastern unity. We Westerns take our philosophy in school, our spiritual needs in a house of worship, our physical exercise at the gym and our mental or meditative needs in classes. Working with Dr. Liao, the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of the human being are combined, not separated, integrated, and not divided.

 As a future client/student, you are invited to experience this rare integrated health/wellness opportunity.

- Parkinson's Disease Healing by Acupuncture, Qigong Healing

With Four Month Treatments, Her Sweet Smile Has Gracefully Returned Without Red Face!


The 55 year old lady was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease 8 years ago and couldn't perform her full-time job for a few years. During her weekly combined treatments of acupuncture, Qigong healing (energy healing) and Qigong Tuina (Chinese style massage with Qi), she experienced graceful improvements of her symptoms of Parkinson's disease. She felt better right from the very first treatment here with our unique way of combining acupuncture, Qigong Healing and Qigong Tuina.


After 5 month treatments on her Parkinson's disease, she felt her Parkinson's disease had been about 85% relieved. The best of all, with the improvement of her mobility and balance, she began to work full-time 5 months after her first visit.

We treated her Parkinson's disease by using a very unique approach of combining of acupuncture, Qigong healing (energy healing) and Qigong Tuina. This effective approach has also been successfully applied to other Parkinson's disease patients at our clinic.

During the whole treatment process, her beautiful smiles has been steadily and greatly returned as well as her mobility in speed and balance. Her red face is mostly normalized. At the same time her tremor has gracefully reduced. In fact, by the 5th month, her tremor is mostly absent. With all the improvements, she was able to offer a great Thanksgivings dinner on her own.

Below is a poem written by the Parkinson's disease patient when she first experienced the absence of her tremor in the morning:



This morning I awoke, quietly

without the tremor—

I forgot it was sleeping still

I forgot that I was still.


Quiet, no notice, no alarm

Just woke up and I was alone and strong

And the tremor slept

While I moved around the house unsuspectingly, unaware of its absence

I almost forgot about it

Steadily handling my world, my keyboard, my hand things as if it were always just like this



And, I remembered Still-Just like this

Paying it no mind

I quietly, forgot


I am Still

All Acupuncturists Are Not Created Equal

My Search for the Best Acupuncture Treatment

I first came to Master Liao for treatment in August 2006. About a couple of years ago, I took a bad fall, fracturing both of my ankles. For two months, I wore a hard cast on one leg and a soft cast on the other, after which I transferred to braces for ankle support and eventually used a walker for the duration of my healing process. After four months, I was told by my orthopedist that the fractures had healed completely and that I could safely resume all of my routine activities. Despite this clean bill of health, I experienced occasional pain in both ankles and both legs. Over a period of time, the pain escalated and became more frequent, nagging me almost constantly, particularly at night, and affected my ability to get a good night’s rest. I decided that I would utilize natural methods for dealing with the pain, rather than rely on prescription or over the counter medication for relief, so I decided to pursue acupuncture treatments.


Although my most immediate health-related problem at that time involved my ankles and legs, I was also aware of the fact that I had a number of other less serious health problems. After learning of Master Liao’s practice, I went for my first treatment. His initial evaluation confirmed the other problems that I had been experiencing. After only a few treatment sessions, I felt considerable relief. There were long periods of time where I felt no pain or discomfort at all. I am very grateful for Master Liao’s expertise and for the successful treatments that I’ve received thus far. I continue to receive treatments for this condition as well as for other health-related problems.


Several months after my initial treatment, I woke up one morning and was almost unable to get out of bed. My back had almost completely locked. My mind immediately flashed back to the time, a number of years ago, when I first experienced this situation and was diagnosed with sciatica. Unfortunately, I was not unfamiliar with this type of excruciating pain. At that time, after an unsuccessful attempt to gain relief through conventional therapy, I decided to try acupuncture as a last resort. Of course, this was with a different acupuncturist. I was amazed that after only four or five treatments, the back pain was completely gone. Long afterward, I experienced no apparent signs of sciatica. It was that experience that made me into a true believer in traditional Chinese medicine.


During this last experience, as I slowly attempted to move around that morning, the muscles in my back tightened and the pain intensified. I immediately called Master Liao and explained the situation. He suggested that I come in right away, which I did with some assistance, as I was unable to drive. The slightest movement of turning my head from side to side caused more discomfort. My only expectations from my visit to Master Liao that day (which I considered to be high for this type of problem) were that the pain would be diminished this first time and that I would be pain-free after maybe four or five treatments, as I had experienced years ago with the other acupuncturist who first treated me for sciatica. Directly after my session with Master Liao that day, I was completely astonished when I was able to get off the treatment table with absolutely no pain. Courageously, I attempted to bend over and touch my toes, which I did easily and with no pain whatsoever. I was extremely relieved and grateful. There was, however, a slight “nudge” in my back, which reminded me of why I came to see Master Liao that day. However, the remaining pain only constituted about 5% of the original pain that I had felt. I am happy to say that the remaining 5% disappeared within several days after that treatment.


One of the other problems which I referred to earlier is carpal tunnel syndrome, which developed to a point where I was forced to wear a wrist brace from time to time. During this period of time, I also received treatment from Master Liao for this condition. As a result, I have experienced tremendous relief with only an occasional minor flare up.


I continue to receive treatment for the other conditions, and I am pleased to be able to share accounts of my healing success with others who may suffer from similar conditions, or who may just be doubtful or curious about the effectiveness of acupuncture treatments, as I once was years ago. I consider it a blessing to have found Master Liao in my search for healing and for the right acupuncturist. I find that he is knowledgeable, skillful, and provides quality care. He is excellent in accommodating all of my questions regarding my condition, the treatment process, or acupuncture in general. Master Liao is the third acupuncturist from whom I have received treatment for various conditions over the years, and he has treated the most serious of those conditions. Through this process, I have learned that all acupuncturists are not created equal.  I can only reiterate that I consider it a blessing to have found Master Liao in my search for healing and for the right acupuncturist.


In Gratitude,



Very Effective Distance Healing 

- Healing Energy from America to Germany

Dear Dr. Liao,

I would like to express my deep appreciation to you.

I have had back pain, stomach pain, sleepless nights (because of stomach pain) for 7 years, and for 2 years I went to see doctors, did all checks on stomach and back, but the doctors could not find any reason that could cause my pain. In the end, my family doctor suggested me to see the psychologist. I did not take his advice.

1 year ago my health got worse; I started to get oral ulcers, throat pain, and tongue pain constantly. Not only this, but my back pain got worse and it affected my left thigh, hip, and spine; my stomach pain spread to the whole abdomen area. I am extremely afraid of cold.

10 months ago, I decided to find a Qigong healer. Since I could not find any Chinese Qigong master who I can trust in Germany, I decided to go for distance Qigong healing, although I had big doubt that distance healing could really work. But my pain and desperation drove me to try anything I could.

Before I found you I tried 3 or 4 Qigong healers, they managed to bring up my energy level, and relived my pain a little bit here and there, but those symptoms still have been coming back off and on.

None of them was able to help my stomach acid, throat pain, and tongue pain the way you did, none of them was able to so effectively improve my symptoms just right after the first session the way you did.

Thank you so much!!

Best regards,
