TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE (TCM) is an effective therapy that helps improve and maintain the health and well-being of an individual. It applies a wholistic approach and seeks to treat the cause of the personís ailment and symptoms.

TCM uses the following modalities:
  • Acupuncture
  • Chinese herbal medicine
  • Moxibustion
  • Cupping,
  • Dietary Therapy

a) to enhance the energy and blood circulation of the body
b) to support the efficiency of the bodyís immune system

By doing these, energy stagnation, which is one of the main causes of illnesses, is reduced and / or totally eliminated.

Acupuncture: The human body has over 500 acupuncture points which lie along the meridians. Meridians are pathways where the energy and blood flow. With the use of acupuncture needles, the points are stimulated to enable energy and blood circulation to flow unobstructed, restoring balance and harmony in the physical, emotional and mental well-being of the individual.

Effects of Improved circulation:
  • Reduction of painful and/ or disturbing symptoms, which are experienced when oneís health is not balanced.
  • Feeling of general well-being
  • Reduction and / or elimination of PAIN
  • Improvement in physical, emotional and mental health.

The Logic of Acupuncture:
Clinical studies have proven that aside from treating common ailments, Acupuncture helps in the management of pain, musculo-skeletal problems, acute and chronic diseases. It is also a form of preventive medicine that treats energy disharmonies before these become diseases.

Chinese Herbal Medicine: herbal prescriptions can be either in the form of decoction, powders, granules or tablets. Herbs promote balance in the body systems by addressing the disharmony at the inner core of the viscera, thus strengthening the body systems.

Moxibustion: is the use of the herb, mugwort, to warm an acupuncture point . This therapy improves energy and blood circulation, thus, reducing pain and discomfort, and aids in health maintenance.
