CHINESE MEDICINE

CUPPING

Fire cupping creates a vacuum which lifts the muscle tissue, blood& lymph up. This helps the lymph to eliminate toxins, old residual blood and introduce fresh oxygen; all of these actions allow for faster & more complete healing process. Cups are often placed stationary. We like to add oil so they glide over the muscles, it’s deeply relaxing & leaves less marks.




CHINESE MEDICINE

ACUPUNCTURE

Chinese medicine has been practiced for thousands of years. It is an art form and the nomclemture very poetic. With the push for regulation & registration Chinese medicine has moved into the tight confines of EBM (evidence based medicine). Where rigorous studies are used to prove beyond doubt the pathways and mechanisms of how it works. Historically empirical evidence has been enough. For example the herb “Dong Gui” has been documented for use around 221BC-220AD for gynaecological problems in the Sheng Nong Ben Cao Jing ( Classic of herbal medicine) we now know Dong Gui has vitB12, folic acid, folinic acid, nicotinic acid, biotin, ferulic acid, and cobalt- this promotes haematopoiesis ( formation and development of red blood cells). We also know that area surrounding acupuncture points are rich in calcium, a conductor for the nervous system and relay system to the nerves and brain for up or down regulation. Stimulation of endorphins, enkephalins, and other neuropeptides for pain reduction.

MOXIBUSTION

They are usually left in place for a week with no discomfort at all.
