Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). They are founded on the basis of balance. There is an imbalance when health conditions like pain appear. To diagnose this imbalance, an acupuncturist looks at patterns through observation (such as eating or sleeping habits, measuring pulse, observing tongue) and by asking questions about the patient’s health history.
Chinese herbal medicine is also part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and can be a perfect addition to your acupuncture sessions. After a consultation with acupuncturist Qian, she or her team will prepare a collection of different Chinese herbs designed only for you. Combining different types of herbs in different quantities helps to create a custom formula for you.
Chinese massotherapy, also called Tui Na, is another part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is a hands-on body treatment using acupressure. The techniques that the practitioner use include brushing, kneading, rolling, and rubbing skin and muscles to open up the body’s defensive Chi and get the energy moving smoothly. This helps to treat musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal conditions.
Osteopathy treats the body as a whole rather than focusing on specific parts. It is based on the belief that different parts of the body are interconnected and they are dependent on one another. It helps a wide range of issues such as recent injuries, chronic illnesses (asthma, arthritis, etc.), spinal problems (poor posture), etc.
Facial Rejuvenation (Cosmetic Acupuncture)
From Kim Kardashian to Angelina Jolie to Madonna, facial rejuvenation acupuncture gained popularity as A-list celebrities described as a holistic alternative to Botox and fillers. However, cosmetic acupuncture is not a new concept. In ancient times in China (Zhou period in 1121 B.C.), facial rejuvenation was used for aesthetic purposes combined with herbs, acupuncture and dietary therapies.
Gua Sha is a Chinese massage technique to relieve pain and muscle tension such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle pain, etc. It is a natural and safe technique that improves circulation and blood flow, and can be performed anywhere on the body. Just like cupping, Gua Sha can cause temporary markings on the skin called petechiae, which will naturally disappear in a few days.
Cupping therapy in Traditional Chinese Medicine is used to treat a vast range of ailments. It treats pain, stimulates detoxification, loosen phlegm in the lungs and improve overall circulation. This technique draws toxins out of the body where the immune system easily can eliminate them. After the treatment, one can have temporary skin discoloration, called petechiae. This indicates improved blood flow and will naturally dissipate after a few days. Cupping marks do not hurt.
