ACUPUNCTURE

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture is a procedure that comes out of a system of medicine first developed in China some 5000 years ago. It is a natural means of restoring health and preventing illness by taking a holistic, or whole body, approach to health. Though it may seem strange and mysterious to many, TCM Acupuncture has been time tested over thousands of years and continues to be validated today.

FERTILITY-ACUPUNCTURE

Those who have problems conceiving often turn to acupuncture. Not only is acupuncture valued for stress-relieving and relaxing benefits, but it is also a component of fertility treatments. Acupuncture can increase fertility by reducing stress, and increasing the amount of blood flow to reproductive organs, and balancing the endocrine system. This therapy is a great option for those women and men who want to safely increase their chance of conception.

COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE

Cosmetic acupuncture offers a natural, alternative solution to the fight against facial aging, when compared to unnatural and invasive procedures/products, such as Botox.

 

Cosmetic acupuncture rejuvenates the face, giving it a natural glow, helping to eliminate fine lines, lift sagging skin and improving skin colour and texture.
 

ELECTRO-ACUPUNCTURE

Electro-acupuncture can be used to restore health and well being, and is a great option for patients seeking treatment for chronic pain, spasms, and paralysis.  Electro-Acupuncture enhances traditional acupuncture, with the use of a small current that passes between the needles (but does not enter the body), creating different frequencies and intensities.

CUPPING

Cupping is a part of traditional Chinese medicine; a method of breaking up blockages to restore the body’s natural flow of energy. A therapy to balance and unblock the chakras, cupping was established as an official practice across hospitals in China in the 1950’s, and has been growing in popularity ever since.  It is a form of alternative medicine in which a therapist essentially puts special cups on the skin to create suction, as a type of deep-tissue massage.

GUA SHA (SCRAPING)

Gua Sha is an Oriental medical technique for removing blood stagnation from the surface tissues of the body, by means of a scraping action (with a smooth, flat tool), along the skin. Gua Sha tends to be really effective in treating stiff or sore muscles, and is wonderful also for releasing the heat and stagnation (particularly in the upper back, neck and top of shoulders) associated with the common cold. It can also be used as part of a preventative health-care regimen.

TRADITIONAL CHINESE 
NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

Traditional Chinese nutritional therapy is used to treat a variety of health issues ranging from uncomplicated hypertension to skin disorders, and beyond. Dietary therapy considers foods for their five flavors, five energies, movements, the common actions of foods (e.g., to lubricate dryness, soften hardness, or nourish blood), and organic actions (the specific internal organs on which certain foods can act).

TUI NA MASSAGE

The term Tui Na (pronounced "twee naw"), which literally means "pinch and pull," refers to a wide range of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapeutic massage and body work.  Tui Na is not generally used for pleasure and relaxation, but rather as a treatment to address specific patterns of disharmony. As such, practitioners use it for many of the same reasons and according to the same principles as acupuncture.

AURICULAR ACUPUNCTURE

Auricular acupuncture is the stimulation of acupuncture points on the external ear surface for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions in other areas of the body.  Ear acupuncture has proven to be an efficient method of treating a wide variety of conditions, from headaches and allergies to addictions and pain disorders. Although acupuncture evolved in the context of Asian medicine, the specialty of ear acupuncture was developed in Western Europe.

MOXOBUSTION

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.

TDP LAMP

The TDP Lamp is safe to use, non-invasive and easy to use and works to treat diseases by replacing the lost mineral content in the body.  TDP, or Te-Ding Dian-ci-bo Pu (Chinese for "Special Electromagnetic Spectrum") has been used in clinical applications in China and other Eastern Countries for over 20 years. The TDP machine has proven almost miraculously effective in treating ailments such as chronic wounds, joint pain, arthritis, back pain, injuries and some skin conditions like herpes and psoriasis etc. TDP has been widely used in China to treat over 100 chronic conditions.
