THE SCIENCE 

A study looking into the effects of acupuncture revealed that it down-regulates (turns off) pro-inflammatory cells known as M1 macrophages. At the same time, it up-regulates (activates) anti-inflammatory M2 macrophages, thereby reducing pain and swelling. M2 macrophages are a source of anti-inflammatory interleukin-10 (IL-10), a cytokine involved in immune response, up-regulating M2 macrophages leads to an increase in IL-10, which subsequently helps relieve pain and inflammation. Acupuncture activates pain-suppressing receptors and increased the concentration of the neurotransmitter adenosine in local tissues.

Adenosine slows down your brain's activity and induces sleepiness, thus relaxation.​

TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE                        

Oriental Medicine is the most scientifically elaborated and articulated form of traditional medicine in terms of its research documentation and continued practice for centuries as well as the most completely preserved into modern times. TCM is a modern integration of East-West medicine developed in China by augmenting it with traditions from Japan, India, and Tibet, so we now have an even more crucial body of medical practice to draw from.

Acupuncture is the oldest systematic form of medicine in the world, It treats body and mind through the stimulation of points which access anatomical and physiological structures. It is only recently that modern biophysics has elaborated a scientific understanding of this ancient practice, tracing the meridian energetic theory through Einstein’s energy-matter equation and the quantum wave-particle relationship as it unfolds in the human body and the flow of bio-conductivity through the body. 

 

TUI NA                                                                                                        

 

Tui na means to "push pull" and is the name given to Chinese medical massage. Tui na uses a variety of techniques combined with passive stretching to correct anatomical musculoskeletal relationships, neuromuscular patterns, and to increase the circulation to remove biochemical irritants.

 

MOXIBUSTION                                                                                          

 

Moxa is the use of the herb Mugwort (Artemisa Vulgaris), called Moxa in Chinese medicine. It's very penetrating and warming in nature and applies warmth directly or indirectly to the tissues in order stimulate and encourage the smooth flow of blood and bio-conductivity, and protect against cold and dampness. Moxibustion is particularly effective in the treatment of chronic problems, thus "deficient conditions" (weakness).

 

CUPPING                                                                                                    

 

Cupping is a non-invasive method of applying negative pressure by creating a vacuum to the patient's skin, to create space to relieve tension, blockage and pain. Is an effective treatment for respiratory diseases, since it replaces sweating and aids in expelling agents of disease.  The use of cups  applied to a damage area, facilitates the extraction of stagnated blood in the local vessels, forming petechiae, then to be re-absorbed and eliminated by the body. Chronic pain is the most common and it reflects mainly poor microcirculation, increased muscle tension and postural problems, acute pain reflects inflammatory, traumatic or degenerative causes. Cupping promotes microcirculation and anti-inflammatory responses accelerating recuperation. Cupping helps trigger cytokine production that modulate your immune system response.

 

GUASHA                                                                                                     

 

Implemented in both the clinical setting and in homes. It involves palpation and cutaneous stimulation where the skin is pressured in strokes by a round-edged instrument, that results in the appearance of small red petechiae. This removes blood stagnation considered pathogenic, promoting normal circulation and metabolic process. The patient experiences immediate relief from acute illness.
