Dr. Bairu Wang earned her Chinese Medicine Bachelor Degree in the Guiyang University of TCM in China. She was then working in a Chinese hospital for 6 years from 2010-2016 which later granted her a Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor in 2012. The huge population in China gave her the opportunity to see and treat 40-60 patients a day that contributes to her experience and skills tremendously. Since Dr.Bairu arrived in Calgary in 2016 she keeps treating patients in an Acupuncture College which contributes to her understanding of different cultures between Canada and China.
Dr. Bairu practices traditional Chinese style acupuncture which is mainly based on meridian theory and viscera theory. In some cases, she also adopts Western anatomical theory in her treatment principles. She emphasizes finding the underlying causes of diseases rather than treating one painful region at a time, as would be done using Western anatomical theory. For example, a patient may often have neck pain and upper back pain, not only putting needles in each of these painful regions but also needling in the distal area on four limbs because of meridian theory. It is also very common that body pain is due to internal health problems, rather than a local problem. Chinese acupuncture will catch this, whereas western medical needles will not.
Dr. Bairu can prescribe you Chinese herbal formula which is specifically tailored to your particular body. A Chinese herbal formula consists of between 4 to 15 ingredients. This is very different from taking one ingredient at a time as is commonly done in Western herbalism. By combining ingredients, many symptoms can be treated at the same time and side effects can be avoided. If you are afraid of needles, in many cases you can still come for treatment because you can take Chinese herbal medicine without getting acupuncture.
