Chinese Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine has been practiced for over thousands of years. It is an essential component of Chinese medicine. It is amazing that we can use natural ingredients such as leaves, stems, roots, seeds, flowers, mineral stones etc. to treat all kinds of conditions. The best thing is that it is safe and it really works! The ingredients of herbs are combined into a formula and given as teas, capsules, tinctures, or powders. Single herbs are intended to be part of a formula created and prescribed by your TCM practitioner. They are rarely used in isolation or without guidance. We highly recommend you to consult with a TCM practitioner before using any herbs in any form.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the most commonly integrated alternative method into conventional medical practice. It is well known for the relief of pain; however, its other benefits are waiting to be discovered. In China and other Asian countries, acupuncture is widely used for every condition. It boosts one’s immunity and it unblocks the blockage of Qi (one narrow meaning of Qi is vital energy.) In Chinese acupuncture anatomy, the internal organs are all interconnected with each other by pathways called meridians, which are located throughout the body. They regulate normal functioning of the body and diagnostically reflect pathology or illness. Acupuncture points are allocated on different meridians and they reflect pathology of the related meridians or organs. When Qi flows properly on the meridians, there should be no pain. Acupuncture needles (super thin needles that can cause little or no discomfort) are inserted into the acupuncture point to unblock or guide the Qi. If this theory has to be put in Western medical theory, acupuncture blocks the synapses in the pain pathway and it stimulates the release of a natural killer hormone called endorphins.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a method of heating specific acupuncture points on the body by burning an herb called Mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris, Ai Ye.) This technique can be used alone or in combination with acupuncture. The heat Mugwort created can deeply penetrate the body. Mugwort is used because it is able to travel through all of the meridians, regulate qi and blood, and expel cold. Moxibustion can promote circulation over areas of chronic pain or injuries. It is used for arthritis pain that is worse with exposure to cold or damp weather. It can boost immunity to help with fatigue, digestive disorders, and much more.

Cupping therapy

Cupping therapy is a process of using cups to create suctions on the body’s meridian system for the purpose of drawing out toxins, increasing blood flow, relaxation, pain management, and promoting a healthier flow of Qi energy. After cupping, you should expect to see red or purple marks over the cupped area. These marks will dissipate in 3-7 days.

Gua sha

Gua sha is a healing technique of using a scraping tool to scrape on the body’s meridian system to intentionally bring up the therapeutic petechiae called “sha.” The raising sha removes blood stagnation considered pathogenic in Chinese medicine. Modern research shows the petechiae produce an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a Gua Sha treatment accounting for the immediate relief of pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheezing, nausea, vomiting, and etc.

Tuina

Tuina literally mean pushing and grasping. It is a therapeutic massage technique that TCM practitioners been using to stimulate the flow of Qi and break up adhesion of certain areas on a body. Tuina works by applying pressure to acupoints, meridians, groups of muscles, or nerves to remove blockages that prevent the free flow of Qi. Tuina is particularly useful to treat musculoskeletal problems.
