Acupuncture and Massage therapy
Cupping therapy is an Ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine. In which, a local suction is created on the skin. This mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing.
The suction and negative pressure created by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow and sedate the nervous system. Cuppin is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism and even cellulite. For weight loss and cellulite treatments, oil is first applied to the skin, and then the cups are moved up and down the surrounding area.
Auricular acupuncture (commonly known as ear acupuncture or auriculoacupuncture), is considered to date back to Ancient China. It uses seeds to stimulate points on the outer ear. It is usually used as continuing treatment after acupuncture.
Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.
Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy.
Acupuncture is often accompanied by moxibustion. Traditionally, acupuncture is used to treat acute conditions while moxibustion is used for chronic diseases. Moxibustion can be direct or indirect.
Acupuncture and Moxibustion are two disciplines within the framework of traditional Chinese (TCM) concerning prevention and treatment of diseases.
Stimulating acupuncture points correct imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians. It aims to treat a range of conditions, though it is most commonly used for pain relief.
Osteopathy is a form of natural medicine that treats your body as a single functioning unit. Osteopathy is a branch of alternative medicine that is less intrusive and more effective than traditional Western medicine.
Osteopathy assesses and treats movement restrictions in your body tissues that prevent you from being healthy and fit. It is unique because it focuses on the root cause of pain and dysfunction rather than simply masking the symptoms. Western medicine typically focuses on treating the symptoms, and not the source of the ailment. It is an effective way of healing, because it doesn’t prevent symptoms from returning or getting worse.
