Traditional physiotherapy: it really works

I was a bit sceptical at first. The treatment room was sparse. No medicine-filled cabinet. No electronic equipment. Just a table, a bed and a few stools. That was until I received treatment like non other before. You see – the physiotherapist only uses his hands, and QI (chi).

I think I’ve blogged before about various Traditional Chinese treatments but this one takes the cake.

I first heard about Mr Chong Yoon Yen from a couple of my good buddies. They told me he is good, and better than the physiotherapists in modern day hospitals. When I heard about his treatments – no acupuncture, no herbs, no needles… sure I was sceptical. But I needed treatment, and I was willing to go it a go.

About three years ago, I felt this pain in my lower back. I’ve subjected myself to many traditional treatments – massage, acupuncture, acupressure, F.I.R (Far Infra Red) light therapy – nothing worked.

You may remember I blogged on an acupuncturist from Klang. Well – that did offer temporary relief and the pain came back again.

Mr Chong examined me and told me that lower lumbar discs, L1 & L2 were slightly off  or misaligned. That accounts for the pain especially during sleep.

Mr Chong used his Qi (Chi) to push the discs back into place. While doing it, I could hear him breathing in & out rapidly to distribute Qi into the affected part. I felt a tingling sensation and warmth spreading throughout my entire back. After that he used a plaster with traditional Chinese herbs to cover the affected parts.

Total time taken: 10 minutes

But to wait for your turn could take you hours as there are many patients from all walks of life, all races waiting for their turn.

My supper buddy Terry suffered a stroke about 2 months back. He went home one day feeling exhausted and dozed off in his armchair. Then his mobile rang and woke him up. He reached out for the phone but couldn’t even lift his arm.

He was warded in a local Specialist hospital in Sunway and was told to rest and go for physiotherapy.

After spending 3 days in the hospital he decided to seek Mr Chong’s help. In just 3 therapy sessions Terry could regain control of his arm again although the skin on his palm (on the affected arm) peeled off.

Invasive treatments and popping medications are not for me. I believe in holistic treatments and after my second session I could already feel the relief.

I cannot guarantee Mr Chong’s treatment nor can I say he is a quack. At RM45 a treatment session – I can safely say that it worked for me.

Mr Chong’s business card says “bone setting, sprains, dislocation” but he does more than that. If you are seeking for traditional treatments using Qi and proven ancient Chinese methods – do give it a try. So far I’ve heard people suffering from slipped discs, stroke, bone dislocation giving positive reviews about him.
