Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a system of primary health care that includes acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, remedial massage, exercise, breathing therapy, diet and lifestyle advice.
Acupuncture is an ancient therapy based on the theory that the body depends on vital energy, known as qi, being in balance. If there is pain or illness, acupuncturists see this as a sign that the body is out of balance. To correct this therapists insert fine needles into acupuncture points, which restores the flow of qi to triggering the body's natural healing process. Acupuncture carried out by a professional is painless and very effective at treating a wide range of conditions and illnesses.
Cupping is the suction and negative pressure provided by vacuumed cups which loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system.
Each food has its own characteristics and in Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners used specific foods to balance the body’s yin and yang and to treat disease.
Massaging is the rubbing and kneading of muscles and joints of the body with the hands, it is especially useful in relieving tension and pain.
