ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is an important ancient system of healing as part of Chinese medicine. It involves the insertion of very fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific acupuncture points along energy channels just beneath the body surface.

By stimulating vital points, it clears blockages in the meridians and improves the flow of energy QI, and improves blood flow to restore the balance of Yin and Yang. According to the patient’s condition, the treatment might be combined with Moxibustion to strengthen the herbal effect.

There may be a very slight tingling sensation when the needles are inserted and then you will feel a pleasant relaxation. If you do not like needles, you could try Acupressure, Reflexology or Cupping treatment.

HERBAL REMEDIES

Chinese herbs are used by Chinese doctors to restore the body's natural balance. They are originated from plants and other natural substances, such as flowers, leaf stalks, seeds and roots. Compared with Western medicine, Chinese herbal medicine is vivid with life and very safe in general.

Doctors prescribe combinations of herbs tailor-made to treat only your conditions. So it is really individual care. Chinese herbal treatments may sometimes take a slightly longer time for improvements to be noticed, but it brings long-term benefit and for some problems the effect could be very dramatic.

The herbs are boiled and drunk as tea. They are also made in the form of tablets, pills or syrup. During the treatment the doctor will closely monitor the progress of your treatment through regular consultation, altering the prescriptions and reducing the doses accordingly.

It is particularly effective in healing and dispelling conditions such as stress, muscle strain, sports injury, headaches, back and shoulder problems.
