Chinese Herbs and Nutrition​

Book an appointment »

In Chinese Medicine, we place a huge emphasis on the food that you eat. We believe you are what you eat and that your food should be your medicine. Our approach to nutrition is to nourish your body with real food and to replenish any deficiencies. Food can be considered the medicinal herbs that we take three times a day. Being aware of what we eat can help to maintain internal balance and prevent disease on a daily basis.

Chinese herbal medicine is one of the main treatment methods within traditional Chinese medicine. Its written history stretches back more than 2,500 years and its practice is far older than that. Although Acupuncture was the first Chinese modality to gain wide acceptance in the West, Chinese herbal medicine is quickly establishing itself as one of the most popular and effective alternative therapies in the West.

Cupping​​

Cupping also called Myofascial Decompression (MFD) is a technique that uses the application of glass cups and negative pressure to particular regions of the body. The cups may be stationary and/or sliding may be incorporated. When used for musculoskeletal conditions, it is effective in decreasing stiffness and pain, improve tissue health and increase mobility. It can also help break up scar adhesions/tissue and mechanical connective tissue changes following inflammation or trauma.

Cupping can also be used as a form of detoxification because it has been found to activate the lymphatic system and help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries. Cupping may also be used to treat respiratory conditions (common cold, bronchitis, asthma).

Tui Na is a therapeutic form of massage and has been used in China for more than 2,000 years. Tui Na has been considered the external form of massage and is used for giving special treatments to people of all ages, from infancy to old age. This Chinese therapy makes use of rhythmic compression techniques along different pathways of the body to establish harmonious blood and metabolic flow throughout the body and bringing it back to balance.

Tui Na makes use of various hand techniques in combination with acupuncture and other manipulation techniques. Many of the techniques used in this massage resemble that of a western massage like gliding, kneading, vibration, tapping, friction, pulling, rolling, pressing and shaking. In Tui Na massage, the muscles and tendons are massaged with the help of hands, and an acupressure technique is applied.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine. Sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping’, Gua Sha is defined as instrument-assisted unidirectional press-stroking of a lubricated area of the body surface to intentionally create transitory therapeutic petechiae called ‘Sha’ representing extravasation of blood in the subcutis.

Modern research shows Gua Sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua Sha treatment.

This accounts for its effect on pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, nausea and vomiting etc., and why Gua Sha is effective in acute and chronic internal organ disorders including liver inflammation in hepatitis.
