Modern Innovations and Technology Module

Part of the Nanopuncture Seminar Series

About this Module

In this seminar, Dr. Shiu will teach the basics of photobiomodulation (PBM), qEEG, and laser therapy and how to incorporate these technologies in a clinical session.


Participants will learn the history of photobiomodulation from Egyptian times to the present. This course also teaches about the advancements that PBM technology has achieved that has made it a more precise modality that helps the brain and other tissue recover from injury.

Dr. Shiu will explain PBM pulse frequencies and wavelengths, the effects that they produce in the body, and which work best to treat neurological injuries. You will learn how photobiomodulation improves cellular function and penetrates the mitochondria to improve fatigue, brain vascularity, oxygenation, and much more.


The qEEG brain scan produces the most accurate live scans of the brain between measuring its electrical activity in the form of brain wave patterns. It allows you to see the interactions within (of? between?) the conscious and unconscious brain and reveals activity associated with ADHD, dyslexia, insomnia, anxiety, depression, autistic spectrum disorders, and more. qEEG is useful for uncovering which parts of the brain are malfunctioning and where acupuncture treatment should be targeted.

Dr. Shiu and his clinic staff have learned how to perform and analyze qEEG scans. In many cases, patients have undergone a follow up scan after completing a round of Nanopuncture treatments to confirm evidence of progress and that the correct healthcare plan is selected

In this module, participants will learn:

  • The basics of brain wave activity and how qEEG can analyze the brain
  • Research explaining how qEEG technology can both analyze and treat Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease
  • The latest research showing which specific brain wave frequencies can treat Parkinson’s dementia and other neurological conditions
  • How to combine acupuncture with qEEG Neurofeedback sessions, a treatment that is unique to the Shiu Clinic
  • The devices Dr. Shiu uses in his clinic, including handheld lasers, facial screens, qEEG devices, laser beds, and more

Dr. Shiu has always strived to learn and integrate the best, most cutting-edge technology with acupuncture methodology. He not only uses these technologies but has forged relationships with the engineers, innovators, and vendors developing them.

The Shiu Clinic is one of a few locations on the East Coast that uses the ReGen Pod, a customizable photobiomodulation light bed. Dr. Shiu has researched frequencies and customized PBM protocols for dementia, speech, focus, Parkinson’s, MS, stroke, and athletic injuries.

Learn More About the Other Modules

This compulsory module will cover how to awaken areas of the body that have fallen asleep due to stroke injury, how to restore healthy neurological blood flow to the brain, and how to determine the most effective treatment protocol for each stroke patient and objectively measure their progress.

In this module, you will learn how to properly categorize different forms of gait disorder from a neurological movement perspective.

The voice is one of the main tools that enable us to communicate clearly, and effectively, and to represent our truest selves.

The Nanopuncture System accelerates concussion recovery and treats post-concussion symptoms using techniques that calm the nervous system, reduce tachycardia, increase focus, and mitigate hypersensitivity to light and other dysautonomia symptoms.

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is like a computer in our bodies that keeps many of our systems running in the “background,” including digestion, perspiration, breathing, swallowing, blood pressure, heart rate, and more.

The skills learned in this module can also be applied to treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis and golfer's elbow, hand neuropathy, bicipital tendonitis, post-surgical shoulder and hand issues, and more.

The Gut-Brain Axis module is the most recent addition to the Nanopuncture seminar series. In this course, participants will learn the relationship of the microbiome to the brain.

In the Sports and Orthopedic module, Dr. Shiu will teach participants how to apply nerve plexus resetting techniques to treat common sports and orthopedic injuries.

In this seminar, Dr. Shiu will teach the basics of photobiomodulation (PBM), qEEG, and laser therapy and how to incorporate these technologies in a clinical session.
