Chinese Medicine

On the philosophical basis of Chinese Medicine (CM), the Chinese medicine treatment of Acupuncture, Herbs and Dietary therapy takes on board the view of the human body as an organic whole which integrates with nature as one. Thus adapting food, herbs, or acupuncture prescriptions to different seasonal climates and regional variations whilst taking into account the individuals health status at that time.

Acupuncture

Acupoints can be manipulated in several different ways including:

  • Acupuncture Needles
    • We use pre-sterilised, single-use and disposable stainless steel filiform needles. It is an effective tool known to heal many common ailments in people young and old alike. Acupuncture has long been associated with a homeostatic (yin/yang), regulatory, or calming effect.
    • Cupping
      • Using a round cup made of either thick glass or plastic with a rolled rim to ensure uniform and air-tight contact with the skin in order to preserve the vacuum. The negative pressure is created by heating or vacuum-pump device. The most common sites on which the cups are applied are the whole back, should, and areas of abundant muscle. The affect-effects of cupping often include erythema, edema, and ecchymosis in a characteristic circular arrangement. These bruises may take several days to several weeks to subside.

    It removes the extra fluids, loosens and moves up the connective tissue joints, encourages the blood flow toward the skin and muscles and to reduces pain.

    • Electroacupuncture
      • For further stimulate, a small electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. Ideally for stopping pain and relaxing acute and chronic muscle tension.
      • Infared Lamp (Heat Lamp)
        • To provide infrared rays that are specifically suited to subsurface heating of the body and increase blood circulation to affected areas, promoting tissue repair. It may used to help heal soft tissue damage, strains, sports injuries and where localised warmth provides comfort and promotes the healing process.
      • Moxibustion
        • Uses thermal stimulation generated when herbal materials are burned, indirectly or directly, on the affected are or acupoint.

      Moxa may used to relieve fatigue, diarrhoea, asthma, lower back pain, rheumatic pain, and some gynaecological disorders.

      • Laser Acupuncture
        • Ideal for needle-phobic clients. Needle-free, aseptic and painless stimulation of acu-therapy, with no subsequent transient erythema, lack of tissue traumatization, the shortness of the procedure and possibility of very prescise irradiation of acupoints.

      It uses gentle low-intensity laser light is applied to acupuncture points, arthritic joints, and tissues in order to promote a “super charged” healing and pain reducing response.

      Chinese Herbal Medicine

      Every patient’s condition is unique and so the herbal formula is an individual combination that suits their exact needs. One of the key benefits of a Chinese herbal cure is its ability to be intricately tailored to suit each person. It is very rare that only one kind of herb will be used but rather different herbs will be combined in a prescription formula, consisting of 2 to over 20 herbs. As conditions change, the herbal content will be adjusted accordingly.

      We offer different forms of Herbal Medicine:

      • Raw Herbs / Herbal Tea
        • It involves boiling dried raw herbs for a short period of time, with the subsequent mixture being reduced to concentrated soup. The active ingredients are then taken as a drink.
      • Chinese Nutritional Supplements
        • We also offer range of Chinese medicine patent and or nutritional supplements.
      • Granule Prescriptions – In recent years, granules (a form of concentrated powder herb) have become the most popular delivery form for Chinese herbal medicine. Granule prescriptions are generally created by combining multiple base formulas together and are taken orally because they are intended to have a systemic effect, reaching different parts of the body via the bloodstream.
      • External Therapies – These therapies usually involve a topical (external use) preparation usually for application to the skin, in the form of a cream/paste/liniment/oil and are carefully blended for maximum absorption that may use to relieve the symptoms of a range of physical ailments including bruising and minor sports injuries. We also create and use herbal creams/oil specifically for cosmetic facial purposes or massage.

      Other Modalities

      • Acupressure / Tuina / Meridian Massage
        • Is also another branch of Acupuncture. In this method, fingers are used for pressing the key points on the skin in order to stimulate and induce the body’s natural self-healing capabilities.
        • Herbal Foot Bath

        There are Chinese sayings about the benefits of caring for the feet: “If you want to protect a tree, you should protect its roots; if you want to protect a person, you should protect his or her feet.”

        According to TCM, foot a barometer that reflects the state of body health. Six meridians reach the feet that have strong ties with the internal organs (LR, GB, KI, BL, SP, ST). Using herbal bath to soak our feet, may promote blood circulation, relax the muscles, and balance the yin and yang of the body. This may also help heal wounds and maintain fitness for older people.

        • Exercise Program
          • Taichi Qigong (TCQ) is a Chinese method of fitness, meditation and health promotion. It consists of a series of simple-slow-relaxing movements and deep breathing that may help to promote circulation of “Qi” (vital energy) in the meridians, regulate functions of the internal organs and exercise all moveable joints and muscle in the body, modulate mind and spirit. The slow, controlled graceful movement of TCQ, which integrates mental concentration and deep breathing, is believed to improve circulation and breathing. Deep breathing draws the breath down into the Dantien (the main energy center of the body) placing less pressure on lungs and increasing lung capacity.
