With an uninterrupted history of development dating back thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest and longest standing of health care systems due to its efficacy in addressing a wide range of human ailments.
TCM is both a complete and wholistic system of health care. Its components of acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage, exercise, diet, and lifestyle advice are tailored to the individual person creating a therapeutic approach with emphasis on prevention by education and advice.
Vessels or meridians are conduits for blood, fluid and Qi. Each one of these vessels or meridians passes through one or more organs to form a web structure connecting all parts of the body. Acupuncture points lie on these channels and could reflect internal organ conditions through physiology or disease. Just as there are a vast variety of manifestations of illness, so there are an immeasurable number of points. Hair thin needles are inserted into these points to balance Yin Yang in order to strengthen the body, relieve pain, and resolve internal organ problems and diseases.
Chinese Herbal Medicine is attested by its sustained and rich history of development, use and research. The Chinese Materia Medica is primarily plant based, inclusive of seeds, leaves, flowers, stems, roots and bark. Individual herbs are chosen for their flavour, property and function then blended into a formula where they take on a synergistic effect enhancing their positive attributes and eliminating negative side effects. This allows the practitioner to match each individual and their symptoms, addressing imbalances of disharmony or disease. Balancing Yin Yang to maintain health.
Massage therapy is one of the oldest form of medical care in Asian and European cultures. Remedial massage is a systematic assessment and care of soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues) of the body for the purposes of rehabilitation, pain and injury management, and health enhancement.
In addition to promoting deep relaxation, remedial massage can improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, reduce soft tissue tension, increase joint mobility and strengthen immune functions. In TCM, remedial massage enlivens the body’s self-curative capability to restore balance and harmony.
The use of moxibustion as a form of therapy is believed to begin in ancient times even before acupuncture was discovered.
Moxibustion is a form of cautery using moxa (processed Artemisia Vulgaris) at points or areas on the skin. Moxa can be burned directly on or close to the skin with or without a buffer between the skin and moxa. It warms the vessels or meridians, disperses cold and moves Qi and Blood in order to resolve disease, prevent illness and improve health.
Gua Sha has been used not only in restoration but also in preservation of health for centuries by practitioners of Traditional East Asian Medicine worldwide. It is the remedial use of friction by applying unidirectional instrument-assisted press-stroking to warm the skin and raise petechiae (‘Sha’).
Gua Sha is a form of counteractive therapy that hastens the resolution of disease and relieves internal inflammation and blood congestion by inducing an artificial crisis on the surface of the skin. The colour of Sha and rate of fading depend on the patient’s condition, generally Sha fades away within three days to a week.
Cupping uses the vacuum force created by a flame or suction pump. The cup is applied to the surface of the body, drawing and holding onto skin and superficial muscles.
With similar therapeutic properties as Gua Sha, Cupping helps relieve pain and hastens the resolution of internal disease by intentionally creating transitory petechiae (‘Sha’) on the surface of the skin. The colour of Sha and rate of fading depend on the patient’s condition, generally Sha fades away within three days to a week.
