Treatments



With over 2000 years of evolution, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a rich and sophisticated system of medicine. Qi (energy) is the central underlying principle in acupuncture and other TCM techniques. The practices listed below are used to access Qi through acupuncture points which are mapped along meridians (energy channels) on the body. Stimulating, manipulating and utilizing the flow of energy facilitates our bodies own highly intelligent and complex system of self healing. Click on the images below for further information on each treatment.


ACUPUNCTURE


Acupuncture is less about needles and more about energy. The treatment is based on a theory of pathways called channels, which span the whole body. Flowing through these channels is Qi, (life force energy) Most of the body’s acupuncture points are lying like small whirlpools along these channels. When these channels become deficient or blocked, the organs are starved of vital Qi and if this continues over a long period of time it can result in a range health problems.


ACUPRESSURE


Acupressure is a good alternative for anyone suffering from a phobia of needles as it follows the same principle as acupuncture. It works by stimulating the same acupuncture points on the surface of the body but instead of using needles, the practitioner will apply pressure with the hands. Acupressure is an effective method of improving blood circulation and repairing tissue damage throughout the body. 


CUPPING


Cupping is one of TCM’s oldest and most traditional treatments. It is often used to heal swollen, painful or stiff joints and it can also be used to clear a head cold.


MOXIBUSTION


Moxibustion is carried out by burning a herb close to or on your body to warm and stimulate your vital Qi energy. It is the pungent odours as well as the warmth given off by the herb that provides its healing affect.


REFLEXOLOGY


Reflexology is a gentle non-invasive therapy based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears that correspond to every organ gland and system in the body. By stimulating these reflexes, reflexology encourages deep healing and tranquil relaxation.


HERBAL MEDICINE


Chinese herbal medicine uses a variety of healing herbal blends made from roots, stems, barks, leaves or flowers. 

                                   

 INTOLERANCE / ALLERGY TEST



A food intolerance is sensitivity to an otherwise harmless substance, which the immune system confuses with a dangerous infection thereby releasing a surge of histamine, which causes allergic symptoms.
