Acupuncture is a medical treatment that regulates functions of organs to correct pathological changes. The results are accomplished by stimulating certain areas of the external body i.e. by strengthening weakened parts so they can keep up with the rest of the body. A wide range of illnesses is treated by acupuncture and the treatment benefits not just the internal organs. It involves the insertion of fine stainless steel sterilized needles into the body surface at vital points. Acupuncture points stimulate the central nervous system to release chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals either change the experience of pain or release other chemicals, such as hormones, that influence the body's self-regulating systems. The biochemical changes stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.
Tui Na or Deep Tissue Massage
Tui Na is an ancient holistic Chinese treatment used to restore the body to the healthiest possible condition. Tui Na ultimately goes way beyond, over and above mere massage techniques. It is a deep and powerful remedial massage which is used to treat specific medical conditions, aid in rehabilitation after injury and maintain health as part of preventative health care. Tui Na uses powerful invigorating techniques that are unique to the therapy. Massage can be strong, dynamic and focused on problem areas leaving you highly energized, or can use extremely gentle techniques leaving you completely relaxed. It is sometimes called ‘an Oriental form of physiotherapy and osteopathy’. You can expect not just deep relaxing session but also proper medical treatment which is going to heal your stiffed muscles, twisted bones and vertebras or inflamed tendons.
Moxa has an especial ability to affect white blood cells, whose function is to fight infection, by activating the function of the lymphatic tissue that produces them. In general moxibustion therapy is effective not just in warming the channels in the cold weather and consolidating resistance (protecting from recurrent common cold and influenza) but more specifically: in simple and/or infantile diarrhea, chronic gastroenteritis, peptic ulcer, bronchial asthma, rheumatism of muscles and joints, neurasthenia, hypertension, menstrual disorders, chronic pelvic inflammation, and climacteric syndrome (menopause).
Gua Sha is a healing technique used in Asia by practitioners of traditional medicine, but little known in the West. It involves palpation and cutaneous stimulation where the skin is pressured, in strokes, by a round-edged instrument. That results in the appearance of small red petechiae, that will fade in 2 to 7 days. Gua Sha removes blood stagnation, promotes normal circulation and metabolic processes. The patient experiences immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough or nausea. Gua Sha is valuable in the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many other acute or chronic disorders.
Modern medicine holds that in the course of metabolism the body constantly eliminates waste. If metabolites are not eliminated in time, they will become pathogenic factors. Cupping therapy speeds blood circulation, accelerates metabolism, improves the permeability of the skin and helps elimination of wastes and toxins. Cupping therapy possesses the dual effects of cupping and massage and is wide in its range of application, for example, flu or cough due to wind-cold or wind-heat invasion can be drawn out.
In addition to nourishment, diet can be used to prevent disease, promote longevity or help treat an existing condition. For treating disease, diet is usually employed as an adjunct to acupuncture and/or herbal medicine. Dietary guidelines for disease are based upon the correspondences that apply in other areas of treatment. The exclusion of certain foods is just as important as the prescription of others. In the dietary therapy, the way one eats is just as important for health as what one eats.
