ACUPUNCTURE & MOXIBUSTION

 

Acupuncture is the practice of inserting needles at points of the body and moxibustion is the warming of moxa wool of the Mugwort herb over the points.  Electric stimulation can also be applied to improve rehabilitation. All are methods to restore balance to the body through the stimulation of the acupoints.  The practice has a history of over 3000 years and is based on ancient theories of yin & yang, and channels and collaterals that guide its application in Chinese medicine.  Book a session today to investigate how this ancient practice can complement your healthcare needs.

HERBS, DIET & NUTRITION

 

Herbs have a long history of usage in medicine across all cultures of the world, and it is no exception in China.  What differentiates Chinese herbs however, is the extensive documentation of the materia medica and its clinical applications for thousands of years.  It is used in combination with acupuncture or a stand alone basis, and offered with integration to your existing healthcare.  In Chinese medicine, we also see food as a part of the materia medica. Food therapy, combined with modern dietary and nutritional science, is a part of a holistic healthcare routine.  Book now for an online or in-person herbal and diet consultation according to Chinese medicine.
