Acupuncture is more responsive to various painful conditions, such as lower backpain, and other musculoskeletal problems. It is also used for a wide variety of internal health conditions. It can have a calming effect on the mind and help people to feel more positive and revitalised. In terms of specific conditions. It is worth nothing that The World Health Organisation(WHO) identified forty one conditions treatable with acupuncture.
Chinese herbal medicine is used more for internal conditions, such as skin conditions,digestive disorders,infertility etc.
Chinese herbal medicine is part of a larger healing system called Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Herbs are prescribed to restore energy balance to the opposing forces of energy - Yin and Yang - that run through invisible channels in the body.
Herbs can act on the body as powerfully as pharmaceutical drugs and should be treated with the same caution and respect.
Acupressure is a safe and gentle alternative therapy used to relieve symptoms from many common disorders. Unlike some forms of Western medicine, this therapy does not involve the use of any invasive techniques. A skilled practitioner simply uses their thumbs and fingers (sometimes the elbow) to exert pressure to specific body points.
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction may facilitate healing with blood flow. Cupping can increase blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.
Tuina or tui-na (pronounced twee-nah) massage originated in ancient China and is believed to be the oldest system of bodywork. It’s one of the four main branches of traditional Chinese medicine, along with acupuncture, qi gong, and Chinese herbal medicine.
It’s based on the theory that imbalances of qi, which is the body’s vital life force or energy, can cause blockages or imbalances that lead to symptoms such as pain and illness.
Tuina massage stimulates the flow of qi to promote balance and harmony within the body using many of the same principles of acupuncture.
It’s similar to acupuncture in the way it targets specific acupoints, but practitioners use fingers instead of needles to apply pressure to stimulate these points. Tuina massage is often used in combination with acupuncture.
