Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the more important modalities utilized in TCM. It is one of the great herbal systems of the world, with an unbroken tradition going back 4000 years. It involves the practitioner prescribing a carefully designed herbal formula composed of around 12 to 16 herbal medicines tailored to the individual patient. Herbal formulas are made from granulated herbs that are easy to administer. Unlike western medications, the balance and interaction of all the ingredients are considered more important than the effect of individual ingredients.
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.
