Treatments & Therapies

Traditional Chinese Therapy

When dispensed by highly qualified Practitioners, can achieve remarkable results in the treatment of some Acute and Chronic Diseases, in helping overcome Infertility and  Impotence and most of the time, deal successfully with a whole range of Ailments, such as Sciatica, Asthma, Rheumatisms, Eczema, Menstrual Pains etc...

THE TRADITIONAL CHINESE DOCTOR
will use one or a combination of the following treatments to achieve success:

Acupuncture

One of the fundamental principles of Chinese Medicine is that everything in nature has both YIN and YANG and that QI “Life Force” or “Vital Energy”  (pronounced  “CHEE”) flows throughout the human body on “ENERGY PATHWAYS” (MERIDIANS) from Head to Toes. An  imbalance of QI (too much, too little, or blocked flow) causes Diseases, Ailments, Pains and Discomfort. It is also an established medical fact that these “Pathways” connect different parts of the body and that by treating a “blockage”at a certain point, it will relieve a pain or cool an inflammation at an other. Years of studies have taught to the Acupuncturist where these pathways connect and how to use them to re-establish a good balance and eradicate discomforts and pains. 

To restore the necessary balance to the QI, the Acupuncturist inserts needles at very precise and specific“Acupoints” along the Meridians where the Energy Pathway is close to the surface of the skin. The insertion of the needles is always painless due to their extremely small sizes, but for the efficient treatment of certain ailments, the Doctor might have to cause a small amount of discomfort by gently twisting the needles.

All the needles are disposable and cannot be used more than once.

Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM)

CHM Therapy involves the use of Plants and Minerals, individually or in combinations, each having its distinguished characteristics and particular medical use to treat specific ailments or diseases, rectify the over-activity or under-activity of yin and yang, and help restore the body to its normal physiological functions.

It is very often use in conjunction with  Acupuncture or one or more of the Traditional Chinese Medical Therapies.

With the opening of China to the Western World, most of these traditional herbs Mixtures have now been prepared in the form of Capsules and Pills which are much more “User Friendly” without loosing any of their efficiency.

Tui Na or Chinese Medical Massage

The Practitioner may brush, knead, roll, press and/or rub the areas between each of the joints (known as the Eight Gates) to open the bodys Defensive System (WEI CHI) and get the Energy moving in both the meridians and the muscles.

The Practitioner can also use a range of motions, tractions, massages and stimulate the  Acupressure Points. It is particularly efficient in the treatment of both acute and chronic “Musculo-skeletal” conditions, as well as many plain muscle pains.

Moxibustion

Is a technique that involves burning MOXA, or MUGWORT Herbs.

MOXIBUSTION is often used to cure colds or stagnant conditions. It is also regularly prescribed to increase blood circulation to the PELVIC AREA and UTERUS to stimulate Menstruation, which  why it is also often used to treat BREECH BIRTH and MENSTRUAL CRAMPS.

It is also very efficient in helping restore strength and flexibility to muscles that have been kept immobile after BONE FRACTURES or TEARING.

Cupping Therapy

Is an adapted form of TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE that involves applying glass cups to the skin to help alleviate pain, expel toxins, and restore proper circulation to the body.

Each glass cup acts as a vacuum or/and suction pump through the use of heat. The Cups are positioned on a variety of Specific Trigger Points (the same as those used in Acupuncture) on the body, and are typically left on the body for ten - fifteen minutes.

There are two main types of cupping therapy:

MASSAGE CUPPING - During treatment, the glass cups are moved in a massage pattern around the skin to help massage sore joints and muscles.

STATIONARY CUPPING - During treatment, glass cups are applied to the skin and not moved until the end of the session.

Gua Sha

Is a significant technique in the practice of TCM. Gua means to scrape or rub. Sha is a reddish, elevated, millet-like skin rash (aka petechiae). Sha is the term used to describe Blood stasis in the subcutaneous tissue before and after it is raised as petechiae. Gua Sha is one technique that intentionally raises Sha rash or petechiae. The markings of Gua Sha do not indicate injury to the body. This appearance on Sha should not be confused with rupture of the capillaries, as in bruising. Rather, the appearance of the Sha marks on the skin indicates that there had been a stasis in blood in that location of the body. In fact, the color of the Sha marks may indicate the nature and severity of blood stasis within the body. For example, darker Sha indicates a more long-standing congestion of blood and energy.

The Gua Sha technique is designed to promote free flow within the body, and is often associated with the concept of Qi, the Chinese word indicating energy or circulating life force. When stagnant blood evacuates the capillaries due to Gua Sha, new blood must replace it. The old blood, once it has exited the capillaries, must be re-assimilated by the body, resulting in metabolic filtration. In other words, the area of the body which was experiencing stagnation is delivered a fresh supply of blood, and the old blood is cleaned up, and recycled by the body.

Reflexology

Is a complementary therapy that involves massaging and pressing on specific points  on the feet or the hands connected to other parts of the body to help it heal. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, the body may be in a state of "imbalance",and vital energy pathways may be blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reflexology is often used to restore and maintain the bodys natural equilibrium and encourage healing.
