Channels are conduits for blood, fluid and Qi. Each one of these channels passes through one or more organs to form a web structure connecting all parts of the body. Acupuncture points lie on these channels and could reflect internal organ conditions through physiology or disease. Just as there are a vast variety of manifestations of illness, so there are an immeasurable number of points. Hair thin needles are inserted into these points to enliven the body’s self-curative capability to relieve pain, resolve internal organ problems and diseases, and strengthen immunity.
Chinese Herbal Medicine is attested by its sustained and rich history of development, use and research. The Chinese Materia Medica is primarily plant based, inclusive of seeds, leaves, flowers, stems, roots and barks. Chosen for their properties and functions, herbal formulas are carefully matched to the individual’s presenting condition in order to help restore balance and harmony to disrupted functions and to maintain health.
Remedial massage is a systematic assessment and care of soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues) of the body for the purposes of rehabilitation, pain and injury management, and health enhancement. Benefits include improved blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, reduced soft tissue tension and pain, and increased joint mobility.
Moxibustion is a therapy whereby moxa (processed Artemisia Vulgaris) is burned directly on or over selected areas of the skin. It warms the channels, disperses cold and moves Qi and Blood in order to resolve disease, strengthen immunity and prevent illness.
Gua Sha applies unidirectional press-strokes with an instrument to warm the skin and raise Sha (petechiae). It is a form of counteractive therapy that assists in relieving pain, internal inflammation and blood congestion, and hastening the resolution of disease. The colour of Sha and rate of fading depend on the patient’s condition, generally Sha fades away within three days to a week.
Cupping uses the vacuum force created by a flame, after which the cups are applied to the surface of the body, drawing and holding onto the skin and superficial muscles. It has similar therapeutic properties as Gua Sha.
