Acupuncture has been part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for thousands of years making it one of the oldest systems of medicine in the world.
Acupuncture involves the use of very thin, solid, pre-sterilised, single use, stainless steel needles, which are inserted into the body at very specific locations, known as Acupuncture Points, or Acupoints.
A major concept of Traditional Chinese Medicine and thus Acupuncture is the idea that bio-electricity (the body’s own electrical energy), referred to in Chinese medicine as ‘Qi’, circulates throughout the body via a system of pathways known as acupuncture channels. These channels are in many cases associated with the potential spaces between the body’s tissues, such as fascia, muscles tissues, and organs.
According the the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ATMS), acupuncture can assist in treating a wide number of physical, neurological, mental and emotional ailments.
Chinese Herbal Medicine forms a major part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and together with Acupuncture makes up 90% of the treatment options available to TCM. Herbal medicine is as old as man and evidence of its use can be traced back to graves of Neanderthal.
Herbal medicine is used by almost all cultures throughout the world, but the most well-known are Chinese herbal medicine, Ayurvedic medicine and Western herbal medicine.
Chinese herbal medicines comes in many different forms including pills, capsules, powders and teas. Most commonly, in Australia, you will probably be prescribed pills, capsules or powders as many patients will not tolerate the taste of the teas nor will they take the time to brew them. It is far easier and quicker to swallow a pill or capsule than to spend half an hour brewing up a traditionally made concoction. In either case, the prescription you will be given will be specifically designed for you and your health problem.
Herbal Medicine is the oldest form of healing practiced by mankind and today is an important component of each of the traditional alternative medical systems: Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine and traditional Naturopathy. All have herbal medicine as a major part of their therapeutic arsenal, yet herbal medicine is not restricted to any one system of medicine and anthropological evidence shows that every culture on our planet has a system of herbal medicine to treat their diseases and health problems.
The World Health Organisation has estimated that 80% of people worldwide rely on herbal medicines for some aspect of their primary healthcare. In Western countries, increasing public dissatisfaction with the cost, efficacy and the potential of side-effects form prescription medications, combined with an interest in returning to natural remedies, has led to an increase in the use of western herbal medicine.
Remedial Massage is a most beneficial therapy when correctly administered: helping to improve blood and lymph circulation, restore normal nerve supply, remove metabolic wastes from body tissues, improve sleep and general well-being, and support normal immune system functions.
Massage can also assist healing through its effect on confidence, well-being and mental relaxation. In addition to the treatment of ill and injured people, Remedial Massage can be used in Athletics and Sport where it aids in the preparation of muscles, joints and associated structures for strenuous activity, or to assist these same tissues in recovery from strenuous activity. This reduces the incidence of injuries and improves the Athlete’s performance.
