shiatsu image

Shiatsu is a Japanese therapy that is often referred to as "acupuncture without needles" or as a "drugless therapy". Pressure is applied with thumbs, palms and elbow to acupuncture points along the body. The points are located along channels of energy called meridians.
Long before Western Medicine acknowledged the relationship that exists between the skin and the internal organs, the Chinese had developed the meridian system for treating disease by stimulating specific points on the skin. The aim of Shiatsu is to relive the ailment and promote health and balance.

Shiatsu therapy for the feet increases the "vital energy" that is circulating between organs of the human body, that penetrates into every living cell. Whenever this energy is blocked, the zone of blockage will be affected, and the reflex zones can indicate the blockage of energy in different organs. The pressure applied to the reflex zones by the therapist will pass through the nerves to dissipate energy blocks. By performing Shiatsu on the feet, you are increasing circulation and promoting specific bodily and muscular functions.

acupuncture

Acupuncture is the stimulation of acupoints and energy channels to move Qi and blood. The Chinese believe that the body’s energy, or chi, flows along pathways called meridians. Illness occurs when the cycle of chi is stalled or blocked. Acupuncture, the placing of fine sterile needles into specific points on the body, redirects the flow of chi and restores balance. It is very effective in the treatment of pain disorders.

cupping

Cupping is a method of treating disease by causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in the jars, usually by means of heat, which are then applied to the skin, drawing up the underlying tissues and forming blood stasis. This method is utilized in treating consumptive and rheumatic diseases. Single cups may be applied on smaller areas and several cups to a wider region. The cups may be moved over large flat areas and herbal preparations may be used with the cupping technique.

Moxibustion is a method whereby moxa pink (or other herbs) is burned above or on the skin at acupuncture points. The heat warms the Qi and blood in the channels and is therefore useful in the treatment of disease and the maintenance of health. Moxibustion can be used separately or as an accompaniment with acupuncture. Loose moxa wool can be shaped into cones or compressed into moxa sticks. The sticks or cones are lit and burnt close to the skin and acupuncture points. The wool can also be applied to the sterile filiform needles used for acupuncture and lit in order to use the technique called "warming needle".

The art of Chinese herbal medicine has been in use for over 5000 years. It has been regarded as "the world's oldest, safest, and most comprehensive system of the medical art", It is based on the use of extracts from plants that possess powerful healing properties to correct the imbalances in the human body and therefore to restore health. All herbs are specially farmed in China and include flowers, leaves, stalks, seeds, barks and roots. The herbal prescription will be made individually according to the patients condition.
The herbs are cooked and drunk as a decoction (or taken in tablet form), to get to the root of the problem. Herbal prescriptions can also be devised to strengthen the body's immune system and to prevent disease.

In our clinic, for your convenience we use herbal essences instead of dried herbs. These are extracts from high quality raw medicinal plants specially farmed and harvested in China under the supervision of expert scientists. The products are refined by modern industrial ways of extraction, condensation, drying and granule shaping.

Thanks to the advanced manufacturing technology and scientific methods of testing, the characteristics and effectiveness of the original herbs are preserved. More ever the end product has the advantage of eliminating the need of time consuming boiling (raw herbs are usually boiled for about one hour), increased hygiene, guaranteed purity and quality.

Your therapist, after evaluating your health according to the Standards of Traditional Chinese Medicine will make a prescription designed specially for you. The prescription will consist of 7 to 10 individual herbal essences chosen from a collection of about 300 herbs.
Just put the granules in a cup, pour boiling water, stir and wait till the mixture cools down. Drink as indicated by the therapist.

You may not like the taste of the herbal mixture and although it is best to drink it as it is, you may help yourself by adding some juice or honey. Also, it is easier to swallow stronger mixture but less of it than a mixture more diluted and more of it.

Please do not hesitate to ask your therapist for more information
