Reflexology

Reflexology is a therapy originated in China and has been around for more than 3,000 years. Its theory is the specific area of the human foot and hand correspond to specific body organs, therefore, as long as a specific area of patting or massage, you can achieve the therapeutic effect.

According to the principle of holographic embryo, the three major reflex areas of the human body are ears, hands, feet. Foot reflex therapy is widely used.

The theoretical core of reflex therapy is to recognize and rely on the body’s inherent self-regulation ability, including self-defense, self- healing and self-curative ability. By properly stimulating the reflective area of each organ, the body’s self-regulation mechanism is activated in order to restore the balance of function of each organ, adjust the falseness of the organs and unblock meridian blood, so as to achieve the effect of health care and treatment.

Reflexologists use charts of these points in the feet, hands and ears to determine where they should apply pressure. They believe their touch sends energy flowing through a person’s body until it reaches the area in need of healing.

Reflexology is generally relaxing and may help alleviate stress.

Chinese Massotherapy

Traditional Chinese Medicine massage is called TuiNa. It has a history of more than five thousand years and is believed to be the oldest system of bodywork.

Under the guidance of the meridian theory, combined with modern medical theory, TuiNa therapy is a kind of treatment method which uses pushing, holding, pressing, kneading, lifting, rolling, pinching and other techniques to act on specific parts and points of human body in order to achieve the goal of preventing and treating disease.

It’s also based on the theory that imbalance of qi, which is the body vital life force or energy, can cause blockages or imbalances that lead to symptoms such as pain and illness. TuiNa massage stimulates the flow of qi to promote balance and harmony within the body using many of the same principles of acupuncture. It’s similar to acupuncture, but therapists use fingers instead of needles to apply pressure to stimulate these points.

TuiNa massage has the functions of reconciling qi and blood, unblocking meridians, promoting metabolism, improving disease resistance, improving local blood circulation and nutritional status.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a type of traditional chinese medicine. It involves burning moxa, a cone or stick made of grated mugwort leaves, on or near your body’s meridians and acupuncture points. The resulting heat helps stimulate these points and improves the flow of blood and qi(energy) in your body. It is claimed that moxibustion mitigates against cold and dampness in the body.

Moxibustion has the unique advantage that other reheating methods can not replace. According to modern medical research, moxibustion not only has infrared effect, the leaves of mugwort contain chemical composition with sterilization, disinfection, antipyretic, sedation, live blood and other effects.

Burned at meridian points or diseased areas of the body surface by moxa velvet or moxa rolls, with the help of the stimulation of the herb’s heat, through the conduction of nerves to promote local blood circulation, stimulate the body’s immune function.

Cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine. It has been popular in Egyptian, Chinese and Middle Easten cultures going back thousands of years.

The therapist will put a flammable substance in a cup and set it on fire. As the fire goes out, they put the cup upside down on your skin. As the air inside the cup cools, it creates a vacuum. This causes your skin to rise and redden as your blood vessels expand. The cup is generally left in place for up to 15 minutes.

As more modern version of cupping uses a rubber pump instead of fire to create the vacuum inside the cup.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), cupping is done to dispel stagnation, thereby improving qi flow. Cupping is supposed to draw blood into the diseased area under the skin could provide all these benefits.

Cupping can strengthen the body’s resistance, balance positive and negative force, remove disease-causing factors, and promote blood circulation.
