Acupuncture on forehead


Acupuncture points (acupoints) lie on channels (meridians), which are conduits for blood, fluid and Qi. Each one of these meridians passes through one or more organs to form a web structure connecting all parts of the body. Hair thin needles are inserted into acupoints and retained for a certain amount of time in order to regulate Qi to relieve pain, restore balance and harmony to disrupted functions, and promote deep relaxation.

Chinese Medicinal Herbs

The Chinese Materia Medica is primarily
plant-based, inclusive of seeds, leaves,
flowers, stems, roots and barks. Herbal
formulas are carefully matched to the individual’s presenting condition and body constitution a
fter a detailed assessment, in order to help restore balance and harmony to disrupted functions and to enhance health.

Fire Cupping treatment on back


Cupping uses the vacuum force created by a flame, whereby the cups draw and hold onto the surface of the body and raise Sha (petechiae). The colour of Sha and rate of fading depend on the individual’s condition, generally Sha fades away within four days to a week. Often used alone or as an adjunctive therapy to Acupuncture, Cupping assists with detoxification, and helps relieve pain, internal inflammation and blood congestion of the body.

Gua Sha treatment on back

Gua Sha

Gua Sha applies unidirectional press-strokes with an instrument (usually made of stone or jade) to warm the skin and raise Sha (petechiae). It has similar therapeutic properties as Cupping and is often used as an adjunctive therapy to Acupuncture.

Moxa treatment on abdomen


Moxibustion is a therapy whereby moxa or mugwort (processed Artemisia Vulgaris) is burned over selected acupoints of the skin. It warms the meridians, moves and tonifies Qi in order to provide pain relief, strengthen immunity, and resolve imbalances caused by cold and blood stagnation.
