  Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practiced in Asian countries for thousands of years to preserve health and diagnose, treat and prevent illness. In an acupuncture treatment, small, fine, sterile needles are inserted just under the surface of the skin to stimulate the body to achieve balance and harmony.

It is a powerful treatment system that the World Health Organisation (WHO) has endorsed as an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions and illnesses.

Acupuncture is effective because it is a holistic therapy that addresses the cause of any disharmony as well as the symptoms. This means that as a result of acupuncture treatment, you will experience an overall improvement in the quality of your health as well as relief from symptoms.

This amazing system has the ability to work with many different types of health-related problems by treating the person as an individual and not just treating the disease.

The sensation of acupuncture can feel like a tingling, pulling or a dull aching sensation. After a treatment, patients commonly feel relaxed yet also energised. People who have only experienced injections or blood tests at the doctor or dentist are generally amazed at how painless acupuncture is.

  Moxibustion

The 'moxa stick' is the most common form in which moxibustion is used to promote healing. Here the dried mugwort is rolled up tightly and wrapped in paper forming a cigar-like stick. The moxa stick can be held in one place, rotated in circles, or 'pecked' in a motion similar to a sparrow pecking at food over the area of an acupuncture point. The practitioner places a finger next to the point being stimulated to maintain a comfortable level of heat and to guard the patient from the unlikely risk of burn.

The moxa is primarily used to treat a deficiency of 'yang' energy in the body. It is yang energy that governs movement and warmth, and a deficiency of yang results in cold symptoms. The patient may feel cold, or may complain of cold hands and feet. For patients who are very weak and deficient, stick moxa is chosen as a primary treatment due to the fact that it actually adds "yang qi" to the body. Yang qi deficiency can also manifest in incontinence or loose stools, although these symptoms must be carefully differentiated by the practitioner as they may have other causes.

  Cupping

Cupping is a bloodletting technique. Whenever you have a buise or blood stasis, the doctor uses cupping to suck and take them away.

Cupping is extremely useful at relieving muscle tension where stagnant energy has built up over time. It involves suction cups being placed over the areas of tension to release the tight spots. It excels in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, sciatica, neck and shoulder tension etc. It is also said to release muscle toxins and activate the lymphatic system. Patients often comment it is like having a deep-tissue massage.

  Herbs

Traditional Oriental Medicine uses herbs for preventive treatment as well as for curing illness. Prescriptions are fine-tuned by the herbalist, as well as by the doctor, and formulated according to the patient's constitution, as well as the nature of the herbs.
