Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic medical system that takes a deep understanding of the laws and patterns of nature and applies them to the human body. TCM is a complete medical system that has been practiced for more than 5000 years and has changed very little over the centuries. Traditional Chinese Medicine has formed a unique system to diagnose and cure illness, its approach is fundamentally different from that of western medicine. Recent advances in western medicine are only now beginning to affirm the wisdom of this ancient healing system that integrates mind, body, nutrition, lifestyle and energy.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine, sterilised, single use needles at strategic points in the body  
along energy channels called meridians. When the flow of energy in these meridians becomes obstructed, disease occurs. Acupuncture helps unblock the flow of energy in the body, which signals the body to heal itself.  
Acupuncture has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as safe, natural, and drug-free. Most importantly it is an effective method of addressing the root causes of disease, and not just the symptoms of many health challenges. It's a natural and powerful medicine refined by great masters and practiced effectively for over 4000 years.

Massage Therapy

Remedial Massage: consists of specific components designed to reduce soreness from overuse of muscles and to ease over stressed tendons and ligaments. This is effective for everyone, not only the competitive athlete. Anyone can ?over do it? in the garden, around the house, lifting something heavy, adapting to poor posture or on the job activities can all produce major pain and discomfort. Specific techniques and strokes are applied as necessary to encourage range of motion and increase flexibility.

Sports Massage: focuses on the muscles relevant to the particular athletic activity. It also can include pre-event, post-event and maintenance techniques that promote greater athletic endurance and performance, lessen chances of injury and reduce recovery time.

Relaxation Massage: full body treatment eases stress from the body by calming the nervous system, reducing muscular tension and by stimulating the release of endorphins, a natural chemical in the body that induces deep relaxation. With stress under control, the body's immune system functions better.

 

Cupping

Cupping is the treatment of disease by suction of the skin surface. A vacuum is created in glass cups which are then attached to the body surface. The vacuum causes a drawing up of the underlying tissues into the cups, pulling inner congestion of fluids like mucus or blood, moving stagnant energy, and can also reduce swelling.
This practice, when completed correctly, is actually capable of relieving a great deal of discomfort in your body and can activate the lymphatic system, promote blood circulation, expel toxins, and promote deep healing.
 

Moxabustion and Heat Therapy

Moxabustion is a type of heat therapy that often accompanies acupuncture treatment. It involves burning a herb called mugwort above strategic regions or points of the body to stimulate the body to heal itself, improve circulation and relieve pain.
Heat therapy may also include the use of mineral infrared heat lamp to improve circulation of blood and energy in the tissues and relieve pain.
