Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is based on a highly developed integrative – or holistic – approach to diagnose and treat medical conditions. All the diagnoses are made from the signs and symptoms your body reveals. The subtle variations in the pulse in the wrist, the sound of your voice, the condition and appearance of your tongue, face and skin – are all important indicators of your condition. Herbs are formulated according to your specific diagnosis.

Chinese herbs have a balancing or regulating effect and are typically more gentle compared to pharmaceutical drugs. Side effects are possible, but usually minimal.

Cupping

Cupping is used to relieve back, neck and shoulder pain, stiff muscles, rheumatism, respiratory conditions, anxiety, fatigue and migraines – among many other conditions. It is especially therapeutic, as the body's natural reaction to pain causes a secondary muscle contraction. When the muscles constrict, the blood supply is restricted, causing the surface to become ischemic, which produces secondary pain to the surface area.

Cupping – combined with acupuncture – causes a reflex mechanism that helps to reduce or eliminate pain and promote circulation.

Acupuncture Clinical Practice

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine.[2] It is used most commonly for pain relief,[9][10] though it is also used to treat a wide range of conditions. The majority of people who seek out acupuncture do so for musculoskeletal problems, including low back pain, shoulder stiffness, and knee pain.[31] Acupuncture is generally only used in combination with other forms of treatment.[11] For example, American Society of Anesthesiologists states it may be considered in the treatment for nonspecific, noninflammatory low back pain only in conjunction with conventional therapy.[32]
