TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE
Oriental Medicine is the most scientifically elaborated form of traditional medicine in terms of research, documentation and practice for centuries, as well as the most preserved into modern times. TCM is an integration of East-West medicine developed in China by augmenting it with traditions from Japan, India, and Tibet, so we have even more body of medicine to draw from.
Acupuncture is the oldest system of medicine in the world, It treats body, mind and spirit through the stimulation of points which access anatomical and physiological structures. Modern biophysics has 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.
PAINLESS & NON-NEEDLE ACUPUNCTURE
For needle-phobic patients and children, there are other methods to supplement needles with Vibrational Medicine. Acupuncture is energy medicine affecting the Qi (energy or bio-conductivity) in the body. Vibrational Medicine tools include electrical stimulation, Sound waves (Tunning Forks) or Light (LED/ Laser) impulses, placed on the meridian points to deliver a mild stimulation.
Studies revealed that Acupuncture down-regulates (turns off) pro-inflammatory cells known as M1 macrophages. And 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 relieves 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.
New studies proving the efficacy of acupuncture are published regularly recognizing acupuncture as effective in treating a wide range of common illnesses including, but not limited to:
Eye, ear, mouth & throat

TUI NA BODYWORK Tui na means to "push-pull" and is the name given to Chinese medical-massage. Tui na uses a variety of techniques such as passive stretching to correct anatomical musculoskeletal relationships and neuromuscular patterns, to increase circulation and remove biochemical irritants.
Moxa is the use of the herb "Mugwort" (Artemisia Vulgaris). It's very penetrating and warming in nature and is applied warm to the tissues in order to stimulate the flow of blood and Qi/ Chi, and protect against cold/ dampness. Moxibustion is particularly effective in the treatment of chronic problems, and deficient conditions.
