TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been practiced for over 2000 years. It takes a holistic approach to the body, focusing on the restoration and maintenance of harmony, balance and order to ensure good health. The focus is on illness prevention as much as treatment. TCM utilizes acupuncture, herbal medicine and cupping to achieve optimum health and well-being.

Traditional Chinese Medicine can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including thyroid dysfunction, digestive problems, emotional disorders, chronic fatigue, hormone disorders, fertility, chronic fatigue, migraines and sinus conditions. It can also be used to improve cosmetic appearance by improving acne, reducing wrinkles and dark spots and giving a lift to the appearance of the
skin of the face and neck.

Types of TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE services

  • Moxibustion Aptitude

    Moxibustion is one of the oldest techniques in Chinese Medicine, and involves burning dried mugwort at acupuncture points or in affected areas to facilitate healing by leading to a smoother flow of blood and qi.  It is ideal for chronic conditions such as arthritis, ulcers and digestive disorders.

  • Herbal Medicine

    Chinese Herbal Medicine prescriptions address the presentation of a condition in an individual way, so that prescriptions will vary from person to person, depending on the symptoms. They will also change over time as the condition improves. Over 450 substances, derived mainly from plants but also animals and minerals, are used. Conditions that can be treated with herbal Medicine include insomnia, fatigue, headaches, arthritis, anxiety, stress and depression.

  • Cupping

    Cupping utilizes localised suction, generally applied to the skin of the back, which causes bruising and broken capillaries. This has the effect of accelerating metabolism and blood circulation and is ideally suited for patients with Chronic conditions, or externally-caused illnesses, such as viruses.

  • Acupuncture

    Acupuncture uses fine needles inserted into specific acupuncture points to encourage the normal flow of qi or energy through the body. Your Acupuncture Therapist may also use cupping to stimulate the body and re-establish the flow of qi.
