Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has existed for over 4000 years and is a comprehensive medical system with its own principles, diagnostic methods and therapies. TCM views the body as an organic whole with a network of meridians connecting and coordinating the internal organs, Qi (Vital Energy), blood, body fluids, muscles,bones, tendons and the skin.TCM also holds as its central belief that health in all parts of the body is due to the relative balance of Yin and Yang. Yin-Yang theory forms the basis of TCM's holistic approach to health and disease and also offers practical guidance in the prevention and management of diseases.TCM has two basic components, Chinese Acupuncture and Herbal Therapy,the aim of Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture is to regulate the meridians or channels of the body to unlock the stagnation of Qi,as it believed that disease is caused by these energy blockages within the body.
It involves the insertion of very fine sterilized needles, disposable and never re-used, into the body surface at strategic points. The practitioners will leave the needles in place for about twenty to thirty minutes. The use of needles is virtually painless.
The application of mild heat to the body, again at particular points, with glowing Moxa wool (a finely chopped herb-Folium Artemisia), entirely painless.
- CUPPING THERAPY
A therapy in which a jar is placed on the skin surface to cause local congestion, through the remotes the free flow of Qi and blood in the channels.
(Chinese Medical Massage-"Tui Na")
It differs from western massage in that finger and palm pressure is applied using a wide range of techniques. It stimulates Qi mobilization to region Yin-Yang balance in certain parts of the body.
- CHINESE HERBS
Chinese herbs are an integral part of TCM. They are specially formulated in China and include Flowers, leaf stalks, seeds and roots. Each herb is used for specific purposes and perform particular functions.The TCM practitioners prescribe combinations of herbs (carefully selecting up to 15 from a total of 300) specifically suited to treat you and your condition. Each prescription is therefore tailor-made. The herbs are cooked and drunk as a decoction (Tea) or taken in tablet form, to get to the root of the problem.You start by taking the medicine every day. As treatment continues, our practitioners closely monitor your progress through regular consultations, altering the prescriptions and reducing the doses accordingly. Since all patients and conditions are different, treatment can vary from a few weeks to several months. After a period of treatment you are able to stop taking the medicine.
- EAR CANDLE
OTOSAN cones for ear care are made of natural fabric, wax and bees-wax. It helps to revitalize the acupuncture points, stimulate the blood circulation and to free the clogged pores. Ear candle is a delicate and non-invasive method for resolving problems of ear hygiene safely and naturally.
- REFLEXOLOGY THERAPY
Reflexology is an ancient, natural healing science which recognises the body's unique capacity to heal itself. It promotes total relaxation and seeks to balance all the systems of the body in order to restore health and a feeling of well being
