Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture
We need Qi for overall functions of the body, it is essential for maintenance, development, temperature, movement, protection and regulation. Our health is a direct reflection of the quality, quantity and balance of Qi.
So, Qi flows inside our bodies and regulate functions. Qi follows a specific blueprint we call the Meridians.
In Acupuncture, we use these specifics to diagnose and treat. Like all frequency it has a value, do we detect more or less in this values then we know the attached function is out of balance. There are advanced methods and diagnostic skills to evaluate the situation.
The Tools we use to restore the balance in Qi are
Acupuncture, Dry Needling, Laser Acupuncture, Electro-Acupuncture, Acupressure (Tui Na, Chinese massage), Manipulation techniques, Herbal Medicine, Moxibustion (Burning of herbs to warm specific points), Cupping (vacuum technique to improve blood and Qi circulation).
Diagnosis we use
Asking: Questioning, information about past medical history, present health, lifestyle and emotional state.
Looking: A person's appearance, behaviour, the tone of voice, as well as the colour, shape and size of the tongue and skin, provide us with vital signs about your internal health.
Physical Examination: Palpation to specific areas and acupuncture points can show imbalances in organs and functions.
Pulse: A number of subtle differences in the quality of the pulse are felt at 6 positions on each wrist. Each ‘pulse’ gives information on different organ systems and functions.
AcuGraph: This form of diagnosis is called ‘Digital Meridian Imaging’, it is a computerised energetic diagnostic tool used to provide analysis and documentation of energy levels in the meridian system.
