Acupuncture therapy - Acupunctuur
Acupuncture is the most recognized therapy offered by Chinese medicine and is also one of the most popular alternative medicine used nowadays.
Using very thin, sterile and single use needles, acupuncture done on specific points throughout the body, will allow you to maintain a high level of energy, providing you an optimum vitality, with great stress releasing and a sensation of well-being.
The World Health Organization (WHO) mentions more than 100 diseases and disorders in which the efficiency of acupuncture has been studied:
Herbal therapy - Kruidengeneeskunde
Chinese medicine is a healing technique based on the principle of free and uninterrupted energy flow. It helps activate the natural healing processes in each patient's body as well as to restore their physical and emotional well-being. Restoring the proper balance in the body is the ultimate goal.
In China, herbal therapy is the most important aspect of Chinese medicine. By combining the herbs together in a specific way, and in addition with acupuncture, TCM is able to cover a large spectrum of diseases and help you improve your health and life style. Where acupuncture creates the flow, herbal therapy nourishes and detoxifies the body in its globality.
Auriculotherapy - Ooracupunctuur
Auriculotherapy is a therapy which uses the auricle (visible part of the ear) to provide an influence on the homeostasis of the body. By using small needles or seeds on some specific area of the auricle, this therapy can help to support or increase the results between treatment sessions. It brings great added value to acupuncture and herbal therapy.
Auriculotherapy can help with conditions affecting the physical, mental or emotional health of a person. In France, this alternative therapy was studied, researched and proposed in the “Treatise of Auriculotherapy” by the neurologist Paul Nogier in 1957.
Tui Na - Cupping - Gua Sha
Tui Na, Cupping and Gua Sha are all complementary methods used within Traditional Chinese Medicine to help treat a condition, release local stagnation and to reduce pain.
Tui Na will use specific physical techniques to mobilize the body structures. Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which special cups are put on the skin for a few minutes to create suction. Gua Sha will stimulate the blood flow by scraping the surface of the skin with a massage tool.
