    What is Chinese Medicine?

    Chinese medicine is a complete medical system that has diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of illness for over twenty-five centuries. While it can remedy ailments and alter states of mind, Chinese medicine also enhances recuperative power, immunity, and the capacity for pleasure, work, and creativity.
    The art of traditional Chinese medicine is to particularize the imbalance accurately so that it can be corrected quite specifically. The patient is then treated by using herbs, specific acupuncture points on the body, or the ear, in order to re-balance the body. This broad system of traditional medicine applies to all aspects of health problems.

    Chinese medicine also emphasises on the prevention of illnesses as much as it does on treatment. This is very early in the history of medicine.


    Acupuncture has been used for a range of purposes from prevention and treatment of diseases. Acupuncture has been the main health care practice in China for the last 3000 years. It is the practice of inserting very fine needles into the skin to stimulate specific points in the body (called acupoints) for therapeutic purposes. Heat, pressure, friction, suction, or impulses of electromagnetic energy may also be used to stimulate the points. These stimulations are to balance the movement of Qi in the body to maintain health.

    Foot Reflexology

    Foot Reflexology is an ancient form of "pressure treatment". It involves applying focused pressure to known "reflex" points located in the foot, which correspond to certain areas in the body. The benefits from receiving a reflexology treatment include increased circulation,relaxation, and release of tension.

    Chinese Tui Na Massage

    Like the conventional western massage, Tui Na involves techniques such as gliding, kneading, pulling and shaking. Despite the similarities, Tui Na is intended to be more therapeutic than relaxation. It mainly focuses on the treatment of chronic pain associated with the muscles, joints and skeletal system and is especially effective for muscular pain. Tui Na also affects the flow of energy by holding and pressing the body at acupressure points.

    Face Rejuvenating Massage

    Have you ever looked at the acupuncture points’ chart? You will be amazed by how many meridians and acupoints existing on your face. Massaging these points regularly can increase local blood circulation and supply and activate meridians, achieving rejuvenating and health-keeping effects.

    Food advice

    Chinese Medicine considers the affect of food when making diagnosis and treatment. You will find that the practitioner usually asks information about your diet and combines dietary advice with treatment.
