According to Chinese Medicine, a healthy body maintains itself through the smooth movement of Qi and Blood. Symptoms of illness, either physical or emotional, are signs that this flow has been disrupted. Chinese Medicine can be used to address particular symptoms or to maintain health by using Acupuncture, Tui’na Massage, Auricular
Acupuncture and Reflexology.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for various symptoms. It is the insertion of fine, sterile needles which are inserted into specific points to stimulate the Qi and Blood.
Sometimes sensations such as tingling, aching or heaviness may be experienced.
Once inserted, the needles are retained for approximately twenty minutes. After the treatment patients may feel relaxed and the symptoms may reduce immediately or within a few treatments.
Reflexology is a therapeutic method which promotes healing by stimulating the nerves in the body and encouraging the flow of blood. It is the stimulation of predefined pressure
points on the feet, which relieves symptoms of stress, injury, and illness.
Auricular Acupuncture involves inserting fine, sterile needles or using ear seeds on various points on the ear to stimulate specific points depending on the patient’s symptoms and signs.
Tui’na Massage stimulates specific points and channels with the use of various manual massage techniques. It has the ability to promote and invigorate the flow of Qi and Blood, and to harmonise and nourish the Yin and Yang.
Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation and Rejuvenation Acupuncture:
Facial Rejuvenation is a process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger. The treatment is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine and involves the insertion of fine sterile needles into particular areas of the face. Facial Rejuvenation may reduce the signs of aging by diminishing fine lines and deeper wrinkles, this is achieved as Facial Acupuncture has been shown to increase collagen production and aid in its dispersal, thus helping to smooth away wrinkles and firm the skin. Bags around the eyes, drooping eyelids and sagging skin around the face and neck can be significantly reduced and toned.
The treatment will also encompass acupressure on the legs and feet, with the addition of reflexology to stimulate the circulation of blood and lymph to the face, thus improving muscle tone, encouraging tightening of the pores and brightening of the eyes.
History and Origin of Chinese Medicine:
Traditional Chinese medicine, also referred to as TCM, includes a range of traditional medicine practices originating in China. TCM dates back over 3000 years and hieroglyphs and pictographs documenting acupuncture and moxibustion have been found which date back to the Shang Dynasty (1600-1100 BC). The earliest and most fundamental composition identified in TCM is the Huangdi Neijing (300-100 BC), which contains the framework upon which TCM is based.
