Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe and effective natural therapy that is used to heal illness, prevent disease and improve well-being. This ancient form of medical treatment was first used in China some 3000 years ago. It is regarded as a complete system of treatment, and can help a wide variety of conditions, as well as restoring health and general wellbeing in individuals.

Acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points in the body, where they are gently stimulated to trigger the body's natural healing response. Acupuncture is effective for controlling pain and can regulate the body's physiological functions to treat various internal dysfunction and disorders.

According to traditional acupuncture theory, there are twelve energy channels called "meridians" running vertically along the length of the human body, each one linking to a specific organ. Illness is caused by energy flow obstructed at certain points along the meridians. Acupuncture therapy stimulates meridian flow and harmonizes the body's energy to influence the health of both body and mind.

Many people use acupuncture to help with specific symptoms or conditions, such as back pain, headache, stiff neck and shoulder, and sports injuries. However, acupuncture works much more than pain relief. It also works on anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, abdominal, menstrual cramps, paralysis of the face, weight control, infertility, Skin conditions-eczema, psoriasis, high blood pressure, circulatory problems etc.

Acupressure( Tui Na )

Acupressure is a typical Chinese massage therapy to use the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force to aid healing.

Acupressure practitioners use their fingers, palms, or elbows to apply pressure to acu-points on the body's meridians. In acupressure, the flow of energy (Qi) is strengthened, calmed or unblocked by pressing specific points along the meridians; the same points are used in the practice of acupuncture. A single point may be pressed for relief from a particular symptom or condition; or to promote overall well-being of the body, a series of points can be worked on in a specific order.

Acupressure treatment has found favor among patients suffering from spondylitis, arthritis, muscular pain in the arm and neck, frozen shoulders, unexplained backaches, slipped disc, osteoarthritis and other disorders of the tissues, bones, joints and muscles. And also according recent studies, acupressure therapy has shown remarkable results in treating neurological disorders such as migraine headaches, partial paralysis, peripheral neurological disorders, epilepsy, vertigo, multiple sclerosis, muscular and diseases of the nervous system etc.

 

Reflexology

Reflexology is a method of stimulating the body’s healing mechanisms through massage of certain reflex points on the feet and occasionally the palms of the hands. The therapy, derived from ancient Chinese and Indian diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, is based on the idea that the organs of the body are represented on the feet, making them a vital map of the body.

Reflexology works by applying pressure to the feet by finger and thumb, in order to improve health, relieve pain and promote relaxation. Reflexologists believe that certain zones on the feet, hands and ears correspond to various glands, organs and muscles located elsewhere in the body. When pressure is applied to these zones, people claim to experience beneficial health effects.

 

Reflexology treatment can help healing illnesses and also promote relaxation and overall well-being. Another benefit of foot reflexology is that it can take away stiffness and pain triggered by too much exercising or using of the muscles for too long. It can also boost the circulation system. It is said that foot reflexology will help the body return to its usual functioning.

Cosmetic facial acupuncture is the non-surgical system for rejuvenating the face and revitalizing the whole body. It is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which involves the superficial insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acu-points on the face. It is much less costly and a safer treatment compare with surgery and no trauma inflicted on the body or need for recovery.

Hair fine, disposable acupuncture needles are placed at strategic points on the face and act by increasing the local production of collagen and elastin which strengthens the structure of the skin. This results in a general tightening of facial tissue and gives a smoother, firmer line to face.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup left on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is in formed and localized healing takes place.

Cupping therapy has been further developed as a means to open the 'Meridians' of the body. Meridians are the conduits in the body through which energy flows to every part of the body and through every organ and tissue. There are five meridians on the back that, when opened, allow invigorating energy to travel the whole length of the body.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small spongy herb, to facilitate healing. Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years. The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of traditional Chinese medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of energy (Qi), and maintain general health.

There are two types of moxibustion: direct and indirect. In direct moxibustion, a small, cone-shaped amount of moxa is placed on top of an acupuncture point and burned. The patient will experience a pleasant heating sensation that penetrates deep into the skin. In indirect moxibustion, a practitioner lights one end of a moxa stick, roughly the shape and size of a cigar, and holds it close to the area being treated for several minutes until the area turns red. Indirect moxa is considered to induce a gradual localized vasodilatation response. In addition to increasing the local blood flow, skillful indirect moxibustion is extremely comforting and can create a deep relaxation response.

 

Moxibustion therapy in conjunction with acupuncture can be very effective for many diseases and conditions including back pain, muscle stiffness, headaches, migraines, tendonitis, arthritis, digestive disorders, anxiety, and female health problems such as menstrual cramps, irregular periods, and infertility.

It is primarily concerned with establishing and eradicating the cause of ill health through holistic treatment of individrual. Herbalists use whole plant extracts and believe that by using plants in their natural form, many of the side effects associated with modern medicine can be avioded.

Green Tea

Green tea is made from the leaves from Camellia sinensis that have undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea originated in China, but it has become associated with many cultures throughout Asia. Green tea has recently become relatively widespread in the West where black tea has been the traditionally consumed tea.

Green tea has become the raw material for extracts used in various beverages, dietary supplements, and cosmetic items. Many varieties of green tea have been created in the countries where it is grown. These varieties can differ substantially due to variable growing conditions, horticulture, production processing, and harvesting time.

Many claims have been made for the beneficial health effects of green tea consumption, but they have generally not been borne out by scientific investigation; excessive consumption is associated with some harmful health effects.

Tea consumption has its legendary origins in China dating back to more than 4,000 years ago, making it the oldest herbal tea known. Green tea was first brewed in 2737 BC during the reign of Emperor Shennong.

A book written by Lu Yu in 600-900 AD (Tang Dynasty), "Tea Classic" (simplified Chinese: 茶经; pinyin: chájīng), is considered important in green tea history. The Kissa Yojoki (喫茶養生記 Book of Tea), written by Zen priest Eisai in 1191, describes how drinking green tea may affect five vital organs, the shapes of tea plants, flowers and leaves, and how to grow and process tea leaves.

Chinese Incense Sticks

Incense is aromatic biotic material which releases fragrant smoke when burned. The term refers to the material itself, rather than to the aroma that it produces. Incense is used for a variety of purposes, including the ceremonies of all the main religions, to overcome bad smells, repel insects, spirituality, aromatherapy, meditation, and for simple pleasure.

Incense is composed of aromatic plant materials, often combined with essential oils. The forms taken by incense differ with the underlying culture, and have changed with advances in technology and increasing diversity in the reasons for burning it. Incense can generally be separated into two main types: "indirect-burning" and "direct-burning". Indirect-burning incense (or "non-combustible incense") is not capable of burning on its own, and requires a separate heat source. Direct-burning incense (or "combustible incense") is lit directly by a flame and then fanned or blown out, leaving a glowing ember that smoulders and releases fragrance. Direct-burning incense is either a paste formed around a bamboo stick, or a paste that is extruded into a stick or cone shape.

We have a variety of incense stick in our shop, you can either buy them as a box or individrually.

Ear Candles

Ear candling, also called ear coning or thermal-auricular therapy, is an alternative medicine practice claimed to improve general health and well-being by lighting one end of a hollow candle and placing the other end in the ear canal. Medical research has shown that the practice is both dangerous and ineffective and does not help remove earwax or toxicants. The claim by one manufacturer that ear candles originated with the Hopi tribe is also false.

One end of a cylinder or cone of waxed cloth is lit, and the other is placed into the subject's ear. The flame is cut back occasionally with scissors and extinguished between 5 and 10 centimeters (2-4 inches) from the subject.

The subject is lying on one side with the treated ear uppermost and the candle vertical. The candle can be stuck through a paper plate or aluminium pie tin to protect against any hot wax or ash falling onto the subject. Another way to perform ear candling involves the subject lying face up with the ear candle extending out to the side with a 45-degree upward slant. A dish of water is placed next to the subject under the ear candle.

Proponents claim that the flame creates negative pressure, drawing wax and debris out of the ear canal, which appears as a dark residue.

An ear candling session lasts up to one hour, during which one or two ear candles may be burned for each ear.
