We provide the following treatments /therapies in the Plymouth clinic:-
*Baby massage is a very effective way to help a baby or a little child to recover from their illnesses or poor conditions, including night crying, colic pain, regurgitation of milk, diarrhoea, constipation, thrush, vomiting, poor appetite, and infantile malnutrition.
The therapist only applies very gentle touch or manipulation to the points in the abdomen, back or hands, with no pain and no side effects. It is quite different from adult massage. For mild conditions, one to three sessions will help, each session lasting only 15 to 20 minutes.
The practice of acupuncture is thought to have begun with the discovery that the stimulation of specific areas on the skin affected the functioning of certain organs of the body. These specific areas are now called acu-points, which are located on the energy passage called meridians or channels. The meridian conducts the energy or Qi throughout the body. It is believed that free flowing of the Qi keeps a person healthy. If the flow of the Qi is blocked for any reason, illness results. The balance between the equal and opposite part of energy called Yin and Yang is broken.
Cupping is also known as “Fire Cupping”, it is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to 30 minutes to create suction. This therapy is an important part of Chinese acupuncture treatment. Cupping therapy can relax or loosen the muscles, promote the Energy (Chi or Qi) flow and blood circulation. So it is good for inflammation, muscle spasm or muscle weakness and general well-being. The cups are usually made of bamboo or glass. Cupping therapy is believed to remove harmful substances (such as cold and dampness) and toxins from the body to promote healing.
Moxibustion is an essential part of Chinese medicine, which uses moxa, it is prepared from mugwort leaves (Artemisia vulgaris). It can be used in two forms: moxa wool or moxa stick. The moxa wool is placed either directly on the skin or above a slice of fresh ginger, over specific acupuncture points or meridians. For moxa stick, a long Ciga-like moxa stick is held above the certain points or meridians, or a piece of 1 to 2 cms long of moxa stick is put on the acupuncture needle handle. Then the moxa is lit and as it smoulders slowly, a therapeutic heat permeates the skin and affects the flow of "qi" (energy) and blood in the area being treated. It is very good for the pain and weakness conditions.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture (FRA) has been used in Asia for hundreds of years to enhance beauty and preserve a youthful appearance. It aims to reduce fine lines, improve muscle tone and treat underlying imbalances that contribute to the aging process. FRA has become more popular in recent years, as people are seeking a safer alternative to the more invasive procedures such as injection.
Chinese herbs medicine (CHM) have been used in China for centuries, among the earliest literature are lists of prescriptions for specific ailments, exemplified by the manuscript "Recipes for 52 Ailments", found in the Mawangdui tombs which were sealed in 168 BC. There are roughly 13,000 raw herbs ever used in China and over 100,000 medicinal recipes recorded in the ancient literatures.
