For all of your professional Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Cupping, Flame Tree and Chinese Diet Therapy services, you can't go past George here at In Focus.
With a long history dating back more than 2500 years, TCM looks at the body as an organic whole with the acknowledgement of a strong connection between the mind, body, and spirit, which integrates with natural environment as one.
Practitioners of TCM have always considered that vitality and wellbeing are influenced through the ability to nurture, what is known in TCM terms, as our ‘Three Treasures’, which every individual possesses. Dr George understands the importance of this and that life can sometimes get in the way and disrupt this harmony. Using TCM we look to establish wellbeing that concentrates on the harmony of the ‘Three Treasures’ in relation to your specific health conditions.
A TCM method utilised to support the ‘Three Treasures’ and work with a range of health concerns. Based on your individual symptoms, very fine needles are inserted into carefully selected acupoints which are located across the meridians of the body. This works with the principle that qi and blood flows through these meridians and that needling in specific areas will reduce any restrictions/blockages and restore positive vitality.
Other Acupuncture treatments include:
Cupping is another TCM techniques where suction is drawn on specific areas of the body to release tension and discomfort. After receiving cupping, it is not uncommon to see discolouration in the skin, however, this should only last about 24 hours and is a positive sign of improvement in the fascia, muscle, and connective tissue.
