Acupuncture is an alternative form of medicine where thin needles are inserted into specific points along the body. This practice regulates the flow of energy throughout the body, inducing the production of chemicals that have pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects.
Acupuncture is mostly used to relieve chronic or acute pain: Headaches, lower back pain, osteoarthritis, tennis elbow, and menstrual cramps.
WEIGHT LOSS ELECTROTHERAPY
Acupuncturists can determine where the energy flow in the body is weak or stagnant. Specific points stimulated by Electro-acupuncture can promote energy flow; relieving pain. The use of electro-acupuncture increases metabolism rate and combined with advised diet and exercise, it can be possible for patients to reduce their weight 1kg per week.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
This type of massage is used to treat musculoskeletal disorder the most, like strains and sports injuries. Often the slow and deep strokes targets the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues which help break scar tissues that form following an injury. Tension in muscles and tissues are also reduced as a result.
These are a few examples:
Cold and flu: Chinese herbs can reduce runny nose, cough, and headache and strengthen your build immunity.
Sinusitis: Chinese herbs can increase the air flow in your air pipe to reduce nasal congestion and improve breathing.
Diarrhea and constipation: Chinese herbs can improve spleen and stomach functions in digestion and regulate bowel movements.
Cupping uses small glass or plastic suction cups that are placed on the skin. This disperses stagnation and congestion of energy by drawing congested blood or energy to the surface of the skin. Cupping is another method to regulate the body's flow of energy, therefore reducing pain.
Colour can range from light pink to dark purple/black. The darker the area indicates the higher level of toxins are present in the body.
Current studies have shown bloodletting has an instant analgesic effect (relief from pain). Traditional Chinese Medicine states that pain is due to the meridian channel being blocked. By using bloodletting the blockage is released, promoting the flow of energy and blood.
"No Qi blockage, no pain; where there is pain there is Qi blockage"
