Infertility now affects many women of the modern world. If youve had all the tests and there is no known cause for infertility, Traditional Chinese medicine can assist.

Acupuncture and herbs have assisted many women to a successful pregnancy.
Duration of treatment is usually 3 months or more and involves herbs and acupuncture.

Other contributory factors of infertility such as
  • Low sperm counts and poor motility/morphology of sperm.
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
  • Endometriosis
  • Blocked tubes

They can all be treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

A combination of IVF and TCM works well. Evidence based on research suggests that the chances of pregnancy are doubled by acupuncture treatment prior, during and post embryo transfer.

with acupuncture and Chinese herbs

In sport accidents do happen, we want to get you back on track and on the road to health and recovery.

The initial management for sporting injuries is R.I.C.E. That is, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.
This will help reduce the swelling, inflammation, bruising and pain resulting from the injury.

Acupuncture treatment can help speed up your recovery time, and have you back performing to your best, faster.

As well as injuries, acupuncture is effective in treating musculo-skeletal problems affecting performance, including conditions such as muscle strain, shin splints, and flexibility. Acupuncture is a drug-free treatment that is used by many elite athletes to aid their performance and recovery from injury.

How can acupuncture help?

Acupuncture stimulates your body to produce its own natural pain killers, natural anti-inflammatory and anti-stress hormones.
The greatest benefits are gained by seeking acupuncture treatment soon after sustaining the injury.

Acupuncture will:

  • Decrease the amount of swelling, inflammation, pain and bruising.
  • Decrease muscle spasms and the associated pain.
  • Decrease the healing time dramatically by improving the blood supply to the affected area and assisting with the removal of body waste products causing swelling.
  • Increase the range of movement especially in the treatment of joint injuries. This may be knees, ankles, fingers, neck, back or shoulders.
  • Acupuncture may provide additional benefit in healing when used in conjunction with other therapies such as massage.

Drug Free Performance Enhancer.

Acupuncture triggers the internal energy to assist in facilitating the untapped potential that exists in us all.

A wide range of athletes including swimmers, runners and tri-athletes are using the physical and mental stimulation and inner calmness created by acupuncture treatment to help them cross the pain barrier. This barrier is crossed when an athlete generates the hormones known as endorphins to experience euphoric feelings and less pain. This happens usually after an hour of extreme effort.

Acupuncture treatment can get an athlete right up there before the event starts, creating an enormous psychological advantage and allowing performance to be enhanced through the relaxation of tight muscles and increased blood flow.

Acupunctures potential for performance

The Chinese say "where there is blockage there is pain"

acupuncture clears energy that has stopped moving which is the case in sporting injuries.

  • Muscle pull
  • Runners knee
  • Neck strain
  • Shin splints
  • Sprained ankle
  • Frozen shoulder rotator cuff
  • Lower back strain
  • Achilles tendon
  • Tennis elbow
  • Foot arch Plantar fasciitis
Acupuncture and Massage can help:
  • Reduce swelling and bruising
  • Decreases muscle spasm and infl ammation
  • Releases the bodys natural pain killers (endorphins & opiates)
  • Speeds recovery by increasing blood supply to damaged area
  • Improves performance and gives you the edge over competitors

Best of all its drug free

Houng specializes in drug free
treatments combined with gentle
massage. This is based on the
philosophy of Chinese medicine
for new born babies and progresses
to children.

Childrens digestive systems are sensitive to
antibiotics. Natural treatments involving massage
techniques with Japanese tools along the
meridians and acupressure points of the child
can quickly treat most symptoms children
present with.

Children respond exceptionally well to treatments
and often do not require many treatments. If a childs
health problems can be resolved or treated in their
younger years, it provides them with a strong
foundation as they grow into adults.

Houngs philosophy is Treat disease as naturally
as possible to build a strong immune system

  Houng specializes in treating the following
health issues affecting children:

•Abdominal pain
•Appetite Loss
•Bed Wetting
•Ear Infections
•Food Allergies
•Hay fever
•Runny Nose
