Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatments
Chinese medical practitioners use cultural beliefs to interpret the states of wellbeing. Any disharmony in the equilibrium of Yin and Yang or disturbance of their flow can cause imbalance. The task of a Chinese doctor is to restore such imbalance. Some treatments include Moxibustion and Ho Guan (Cupping). The aim is to supplement the deficiency of either Yin or Yang or to reduce the excess.
The holistic approach of Chinese medicine is to treat the body as a whole and address any imbalance.
Traditional Chinese Medical Treatments
Chuan Spa’s Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) initial treatment session(s) may include:
An ancient traditional Chinese technique to help strengthen the blood and stimulate the flow of ‘Qi’ to maintain general health. Moxibustion involves the burning of a small, spongy Chinese herb, known as moxa, to facilitate healing. The practitioner will light one end of a moxa stick and hold it close to an acupressure point for several minutes to bring about a pleasant heat sensation penetrating deep into the skin.
Cupping refers to an ancient Chinese practice in which a heated cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup has a therapeutic effect on the skin and superficial muscle layer. Cupping is applied to certain acupressure points, as well as to regions of the body that are affected by pain. Treatment bookings should be made 24 hours in advance and are subject to availability.
