Consultation + Acupuncture or acupressure + Moxibustion
An acupuncture session, one of the fundamental tools of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is now recognized by the WHO. Bioenergetic movement paths (chi) throughout the body are altered with the smooth insertion of small needles to rebalance, tone or sedate specific functions of organs.
The Acupuncture Session stimulates the body’s ability to preserve and restore health through the balance and harmony of different elements. Its aim is to stimulate chi energy and maintain an optimal health status.
Acupressure (special for patients with a fear of needles)
Acupressure is a massage practiced by exerting pressure with the fingers on the back, arms, legs, hands and feet to balance energy levels of specific meridians. Acupressure provides great energy power.This shares the same effects of acupuncture, but without needles.
Moxibustion is the application of localised heat on different acupuncture points to improve and regulate the body’s energy flow, eliminating internal cold and relieving common ailments of the musculoskeletal system. This therapy uses moxa, which is made from dried mugwort (Artemisia argyi).
