The Chinese Medicine Clinic Treatments

 

Treatments currently offered by our therapists at The Chinese Medicine Clinic include:

Acupressure

 

Acupressure is the application of pressure to the body to affect the flow of energy (Qi) in the 12 meridians according to the principles of Oriental medicine. It is widely practiced in China where more emphasis is given to a person's responsibility for their own health than it is in the West, and is often used as a self-help treatment.

 

Acupressure is believed to be the 'mother of Acupuncture' in that it predates the use of needles to stimulate the body's energy flow. It has the same principles as acupuncture, but the pressure is applied directly to the acupoints of the body mainly by using the hands, fingers, thumb or knuckles and sometimes by using a smooth, blunt object. Stimulation of the body's meridian system by touch is perhaps one of the oldest healing systems, and many other therapies use acupressure techniques including Qi Gong, Shiatsu and Tuina.
