Damon Lee, R.Ac., RPN has over 40 years of experience as an acupuncturist, and has been working in the tri-city area of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody for over 25 years. As the name suggestions, his Paingone Acupuncture Therapy Clinic specializes in pain management, including whiplash, arthritis, back pain, joint pain, headaches & migraines, and muscle injuries. Since he developed the Epidermal Acupuncture Technique (E.A.T.), Damon has experienced a success rate of 80-100% with patients suffering from pain.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M.), and has been combined with many other therapies (e.g. moxibustion, cupping, Dermal scraping, and Chinese massage) to rebalance the body. When the body's organs, blood, and Qi (life energy) are functioning in harmony, the body becomes healthy and pain-free. Acupuncture itself is the insertion of very fine needles into acupuncture points or in painful areas of the body to clear areas of blockages or congestion. Most patients describe the needling like a "mosquito bite" or like nothing at all; when the needles are stimulated, you may experience tingling, a dull sensation, or very gentle electrical impulse.
