Over the last decade the use of sound (voice, gongs, metal and crystal bowls, and bells) for healing has been well studied and proven to help with stress above all. I have been using bowls and gongs with patients for years and I now incorporate them into every treatment. I also do performances for large meditation groups.
From knowledge gained through centuries of practice, plants and natural remedies are effectively used to strengthen and balance the body from the inside outwards. After evaluation according to Chinese medical theory an herbal formula can be selected for your condition and needs.
Tui Na Massage
Using pressing, stretching, and decompression techniques, areas of tension, pain, and injury are released and healing is promoted by increased flow of fresh blood, oxygen, and Qi. Sports injuries, sciatica, knee pain, and low back pain are commonly treated with these techniques.
The needles guide the body to focus on it’s specific healing needs. This is achieved using fine, hair thin, sterile, disposable needles gently inserted into specific well studied points to help redirect or increase the Qi in the body. Acupuncture is a safe and effective means of treating a wide variety of conditions.
Medical Qigong Healing
A specific techniques that use the knowledge of the body’s internal and external energy fields to purge, strengthen, and regulate these energies. It offers patients a safe and effective way to rid themselves of toxic pathogens and emotional trauma that can cause mental and physical illness. It includes breathing and movement, creative visualization, and spiritual intent. Qigong energy work is performed by the practitioner for their patient and patients are given qigong exercises as homework for their medical conditions.
Mugwort is a medicinal plant that is dried and then burned near the skin in order to gently stimulate and warm acupuncture points. This therapy has the effect of strengthening and relaxing the body and it is particularly useful for stimulating the immune system. It’s effect of promoting circulation and alleviating pain is broad and ranges from arthritis to numb extremities.
An ancient Chinese therapy of applying a cup to the skin. The pressure in the cup is reduced (either by heat or suction) in order to draw and hold skin and superficial muscles inside the cup. Cupping removes any stagnation in the body and increases qi flow. Cupping is known to help activate the lymphatic system, promote blood circulation, and is good for deep tissue repair. This is many patients’ favourite treatment. In my clinic I use glass, plastic and silicone cups.
Meditation. (Shhhhh. I’ll tell you more later)
Tai Chi (Like moving meditation, but not so “Shhhhh”)
