Ancient Approach - Chinese Medicine
It is our mission here at Ancient Approach to understand and resolve your health problems and to educate you on Oriental medical practices. Due to this we offer a range of Traditional Chinese Medicine services, from Acupuncture to Cupping to help relieve your aches, pains and ailments.
Below is some information about our two most popular services.
Acupuncture involves inserting fine single-use sterilised needles into specific points on the body, or applying various other techniques to the acupuncture points to bring about healing. Scientific trials around the world have found that acupuncture is a safe and useful treatment for many different disorders.
Acupuncture points are located on specific channels (meridians) that connect the exterior of the body with the internal organs.
When the body is in a state of good health, Qi (pronounced chee) and blood flow smoothly through these pathways but when there is dis-ease or trauma there can be insufficiencies or obstructions to the flow of qi and blood, which then cause an imbalance in the body leading to illness or pain.
There are several different components to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) such as Cupping, Gua Sha, Herbal medicine, Qi Gong or Tai Chi, lifestyle factors and Chinese Nutritional Therapy so there are alternative treatments to acupuncture if you are scared of needles.
Cupping is a technique used by TCM practitioners involving special suction cups that help to relieve muscle tension and promote local qi and blood flow. It works similarly to a deep tissue massage without the pain. The cups generally feel tight but not painful and cupping marks usually dissipate within a few days.
Cupping is used by our practitioners to treat pain, postural tension and soft tissue inflammation
