Electroacupuncture

Electroacupuncture could treat pain, arthritis, chemotherapy-related nausea, stress, addiction and even tinnitus. With electro-acupuncture, it circulates the bloodstream for longer and it provides a longer period of time for pain relief when compared to acupuncture.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture, also referred to as facial acupuncture, is acupuncture that focuses specifically on an aesthetic condition of the patient, usually concerning the face.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.

Gua-Sha

Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. This ancient Chinese healing technique may offer a unique approach to better health, addressing issues like chronic pain.

In gua sha, a technician scrapes your skin with short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow. They make these strokes with a smooth-edged instrument known as a gua massage tool. The technician applies massage oil to your skin, and then uses the tool to repeatedly scrape your skin in a downward motion.

Gua sha is intended to address stagnant energy, called chi, in the body that practitioners believe may be responsible for inflammation. Inflammation is the underlying cause of several conditions associated with chronic pain. Rubbing the skin’s surface is thought to help break up this energy, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.

Tui-Na

Tuina or tui-na (pronounced twee-nah) massage originated in ancient China and is believed to be the oldest system of bodywork. It’s one of the four main branches of traditional Chinese medicine, along with acupuncture, qi gong, and Chinese herbal medicine.

It’s based on the theory that imbalances of qi, which is the body’s vital life force or energy, can cause blockages or imbalances that lead to symptoms such as pain and illness.

Tuina massage stimulates the flow of qi to promote balance and harmony within the body using many of the same principles of acupuncture.

It’s similar to acupuncture in the way it targets specific acupoints, but practitioners use fingers instead of needles to apply pressure to stimulate these points. Tuina massage is often used in combination with acupuncture.

Overview of Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine refers to the 2,400 year old medical practices indigenous to China. Made up of four major branches–acupuncture, herbology bodywork, and health benefiting exercises–it is a blend of medicine from India that arrived with Buddhism, the Middle East via the Silk Route and Daoism, China’s own philosophy of harmony and balance. Basing its theories of illness and treatment on climactic factors, dietary habits, and lifestyle instead of the influences of gods, spirits and omens, it is one the few theory-based traditional medical systems to produce thousands of writings documenting its practices and remaining in continuous use since 500 BCE.

 

As a result, the influence of Chinese medicine over the last two and a half millennia has been so great that every indigenous medical tradition in Asia draws its knowledge either completely or in part from China’s traditional medicine. Sadly, the West’s understanding of this living knowledge is from post Communist, not traditional, Chinese medicine. Teachers and curriculum are brought over from schools in China based on the post 1949 politically correct model of Chinese medicine. Unaware of the dramatic changes that have happened over the last 50 years, the West is not drawing from the last of the traditional practitioners left in China. For Chinese medicine to truly demonstrate its efficacy as it becomes accepted in the West, it is vital this aging generation is documented so their knowledge and experience helps shape integrative healthcare today and continues to educate the Chinese medical practitioners of tomorrow.
