Medical Tourism: 40-years-old man with chronic pain and hearing problem

By Mr. Kuchkov & registered Chinese medicine practitioner: Dr. Clara Chan

Feedback from the client, Mr. Kuchkov

I planned my vacation trip to Hong Kong with the intention of seeking Chinese medicine’s help on 2 of my health conditions, namely sciatica pain and loss of hearing. I am particularly interested in acupuncture treatment as I had prior experience of healing my back pain by receiving acupuncture treatment in Hong Kong.  Through internet searching,  I chose to contact Balance Health.  Their customer service team is very responsive and helpful. I managed to see my chosen TCM doctor the 1st day upon my arrival in Hong Kong, and booked all the balance treatments according to the doctor’s plan after the 1st consultation.

My sciatica pain has lasted for quite a while and has turned quite painful recently. Dr. Clara has used cupping, gua-sha and  acupuncture to help me to release the lower back and manage the pain.  I particularly like the treatment effect of cupping, and my pain did subside after 1 treatment.  

I lost 75% of the hearing capacity of one of my ears around 10 years ago, after a medical treatment on back pain. The condition did not improve despite me seeking various treatments. Dr. Clara released my neck and shoulder and improved the blood flow in my upper body, she then used head and body acupuncture to stimulate the acupoints and nerves related to hearing. She also gave me some tips and taught me acupressure techniques to practice in my daily life to conserve my hearing ability.

I am happy with the result of my medical trip. My sciatica pain is totally gone and only left with some tightness on my upper leg,  I manage to resume my swimming routine and walk for a long time pain free.  As for hearing,  I also feel some improvement. My mood is definitely uplifted and I plan to seek Dr. Clara’s help on my thinning hair in my next medical trip.   

Comment from Dr. Clara Chan

In Balance health,  we help a lot of overseas clients to deal with their medical conditions through medical trips and/ or online consultation. In most cases, the clients suffer from chronic conditions, which they don’t see any improvement with the treatments they may obtain close to home.  They choose to come to Hong Kong to receive TCM treatment, normally after very extensive internet research, and have confidence that TCM treatment can help their conditions.  

In the above case,  we have explained to Oleg that his sciatica nerve pain could definitely be improved, but he needs to continue to do exercise to maintain it. As for hearing loss, a course of 7 treatments may just be enough to kick off the change,  and further treatments may be needed. Although a medical trip is short and may not be able to totally heal the condition,  it serves as a very good kick start. We have seen a lot of attitude change from our clients once they experience the improvement of their conditions. They turn hopeful, and energized, and for some clients, they will seek our continuous help through online consultation and herbal medicine support.

Weight loss with TCM is not just about losing weight, it is also the beginning of preventing chronic diseases.

Losing a loved one can be an incredibly painful experience. Their death can feel like an overwhelming weight on one’s shoulders. In most of my clinical cases of grieving, my clients experience intense and difficult emotions, such as deep sadness, emptiness, and hopelessness. Their life routine are also disrupted due to their lack of energy and difficulties in dealing with reality.
