Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the main elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), used widely in the treatment of various diseases in the major disciplines of internal medicine: orthopaedics, gynaecology, obstetrics, paediatrics, and dermatology.

 

Central to acupuncture is the TCM concept of qi, a fundamental energy which takes on different forms and functions in various parts of the body. Qi reaches the body's different organs and tissues through the system of channels known as meridians, in turn controlling all the physiological aspects of our health. Imbalances in our health can be caused by many different factors. These may include weather conditions, physical injury, infections, poisons and emotional states such as anxiety, stress, anger, fear or grief.

 

To treat disease, a TCM practitioner will insert fine needles into specific points on the body located at superficial areas along the meridian. These points are known as acupuncture points.

 Herbal Medicine 

Herbal Medicine

Consisting only of natural medicines such as flowers, roots or even the bark of certain trees there are over three hundred commonly used Chinese medicines. The use of endangered animals, more of a tradition in certain parts of Asia than a substantial part of Chinese medicine, has no place whatsoever in the present-day practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

 

Herbal medicines can be taken singularly but are more commonly used in prescriptions tailored to each patient by the practitioner. During the course of a particular treatment a prescription may even change as the condition alters. The medicine comes as a small bag of loose herbs which are boiled to form a medicinal soup which is taken twice daily.

 

For convenience there are several pre-made medicines available in pill or powder form which have been put together to treat several commonly found illnesses and symptoms.

Traditional Chinese  Massage (Tui Na) 

Traditional Chinese Massage (Tui Na) involves acupressure, which is the stimulation of acupuncture points without the use of needles. It also involves a variety of massage techniques to relax muscles and stimulate blood flow, and spinal manipulation techniques that work in a similar way to chiropractic treatment.

 

According to the requirement of the disease and preference of the patient, massage can be administered in different ways. Acupressure is useful, for example, on children or people who are afraid of acupuncture needles.

 

A general massage is excellent as an aid to relaxing and coping with stress, and spinal manipulations combined with massage may be necessary for people with back or neck problems.
