Chinese massage (Tuina) is used to complement and enhance our patients’ treatment. For example, acupuncture is used for a large number of physical issues, but its effectiveness can often be furthered when appropriately paired with clinical massage/Tuina. These techniques can be either dynamic or gentle depending on the individual requirements of the patient. This type of massage works on the meridian system of the body, where Qi and Blood circulation are promoted and pressure is applied to acupoints to achieve specific results. This is a relaxing yet invigorating form of massage. Peer-reviewed medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced trait anxiety and depression, and temporarily reduced blood pressure, heart rate, and state of anxiety.

Chinese nutritional/dietary advice

You are what you eat. And food is medicine. A proper diet is considered the foundation of health. In Chinese Medicine there is a great deal of overlap between food therapy and herbal medicine. Both food and herbs are viewed in the same way — properties (cold, cool, warm, hot, or neutral), flavours (spicy, sweet, sour, bitter, or salty) and the respective organs they affect. It’s beneficial and sometimes even necessary to take the dietary advice to accelerate healing and promote health.
