~A nature form of healing
Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
The origins of acupuncture in China can be traced back at least 2000 years, making it one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world. It is an effective, natural and increasingly popular form of health care that is being used by people from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds.
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body's meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi (life energy) through the individual. The practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of qi.

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine takes an holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
Most diseases or illnesses present with a core set of recognisable signs and symptoms, but the actual presentation of a particular disease or illness will vary from person to person. For this reason, people with similar health conditions may be provided with quite different Chinese herbal medicine prescriptions.
Chinese Cupping Therapy
Relaxing, Healing & Pain Relieving
Cupping is one of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine. Cupping is common used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety and fatigue.
Cupping is the term applied to a technique that uses small glass cups, bamboo jars or plastic suction cups as suction devices that are placed on the skin. While the vacuum created, the drawing up the skin is believed to open up the skin’s pores, which helps to stimulate the flow of blood, balances and realigns the flow of qi, breaks up obstructions, and creates an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body.
Like acupuncture, cupping follows the lines of the meridians. By targeting the meridian channels, cupping strives to 'open' these channels - the paths through which life energy flows freely throughout the body, through all tissues and organs, thus providing a smoother and more free-flowing qi (life energy).
Chinese Medical scraping Treatment
Gua sha (scraping) is an ancient form of Chinese traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) massage therapy using a jade board scrape on the body to promote blood circulation and remove toxic heat, blood and lymph. It can indeed be effective for pain relief.
According TCM theory if there is a presence of toxins, “Sha” will be formed and caused congestion in the circulation. In Chinese, “Gua” means scrape or rub over the skin, and “Gua Sha” means toxins are being brought to the surface by the rubbing (then it restores and rebalances “Qi” circulation in the body).
Facial scraping(gua sha) is systematically developed and getting popular in Asia recently for medical cosmetology. This holistic beauty therapy can balance, restore and rejuvenate the skin condition without leaving any signs of petechiae, and without uses of chemical acids, microdermabrasion, Botox drug injection or painful cosmetic surgery.
It not only promotes blood and “Qi” circulation but also accelerates skin cell regeneration, improves skin absorption, and prevents aging. The following effects will be seen after the facial scraping therapy:
(1) reduced dark circles/eye bags/puffiness;
(2) reduced fine lines/wrinkles;
(3) improved uneven tone;
(4) smoother and radiant skin;
(5) smaller pores;
(6) lightened freakles/dark spots;
(7) lifted and firmer skin;
(8) reduced double chin/refined face shape.
