ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is part of the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe the human body has more than 2,000 acupuncture points connected by pathways or meridians. These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced "chee") through the body that is responsible for overall health. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. By applying acupuncture to certain points, it is thought to improve the flow of Qi, thereby improving health.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE

Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment that involves using acupuncture to improve skin and fight the aging process. Sometimes referred to as an "acupuncture facelift" or "facial rejuvenation," cosmetic acupuncture often is used as an alternative to surgical facelifts and other conventional procedures said to reverse signs of aging in the skin.

Moxibustion

MOXIBUSTION

Moxibustion, also called moxa treatment, traditional medical practice that originated in China and thence spread to Japan and other Asian countries. It is performed by burning mugwort, a herb known for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties, on certain designated points of the body, generally the same points as those used in acupuncture.

HERBAL MEDICINE

Herbal medicine (also herbalism) is the study of pharmacognosy and the use of medicinal plants. Plants have been the basis for medical treatments through much of human history, and such traditional medicine is still widely practiced today. Modern medicine makes use of many plant-derived compounds as the basis for evidence-based pharmaceutical drugs.

Tui na is a form of Chinese manipulative therapy often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, fire cupping, Chinese herbalism, t'ai chi, and qigong. Tui na is a hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese taoist principles in an effort to bring the eight principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) into balance.

MEDICAL MASSAGE

After surgery joints can stiffen and fluids can accumulate and harden which is often painful. Massage after surgery is indicated for increasing blood flow, reducing swelling, regaining mobility and speeding recovery. Give yourself the best opportunity to return to your normal activities sooner.

Scar Tissue has three phases. The inflammatory phase, when healing starts. the proliferation phase, when new collagen fibres bind to cover the wound (2-10 days after intervention) and remodeling phase, when scar tissue builds up. Massage can commence as soon as two weeks after intervention and can still produce beneficial out comes for up to two years after intervention.

remedial massage

REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.

Remedial massage aims to reduce or eliminate pain, and restore normal function of muscles and joints. It can help increase joint mobility and flexibility, stimulate the lymphatic system and promote blood flow, particularly to injured areas.

The move is a rolling-type move of the thumbs and forefingers, and is designed to stimulate nerve pathways which allow a 'conversation' to take place between different nervous systems of the body

Cupping

CUPPING

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction.
