THE TRADITIONAL ORIENTAL TREATMENT
Cupping-- It is a method of creating a vacuum on the patient's skin to dispel stagnation stagnant blood and lymph, thereby improving Qi-flow to
treat respiratory diseases such as the common cold, pneumonia and bronchitis.
It also is used on back, neck, shoulder and other musculoskeletal conditions.
Acupuncture -- It is a form of alternative medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine involving thin needles inserted into the body at acupuncture points. Chinese medicine believes that the body of the meridian system is responsible for transporting the body's "Qi & "Blood," these transporting substances circulating in the body, the body in various tissues and organs to maintain balance and stability!
Four Diagnostic Methods -- inspection, auscultation and olfaction, inquiring, and palpation. The acupuncturist decides which points to treat by observing and questioning the patient to make a diagnosis according to the tradition used. Such as which pattern is at hand, practitioners examine things like the color and shape of the tongue, the relative strength of pulse-points, the smell of the breath, the quality of breathing, or the sound of the voice.
Acupressure --It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through "meridians" in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, by elbow, or with various devices.
