CHINESE MEDICINE CALGARY
Traditional Chinese Medicine primarily focuses on balance, harmony, and energy. This form of therapy, which spans hundreds of years, is twofold:
Qi is known as “life energy” or “vital energy” which is a belief that courses throughout the entire body. This constant flow of energy is always on the move and constantly changes every day. Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments help rejuvenate and maintain the flow of your Qi.
Yin and Yang
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, yin and yang are what balances your energy. These two beliefs are opposites of another that are used to describe the qualities of Qi. By keeping your yin and yang balanced, you create harmony and a healthy flow of Qi throughout your body. When they’re unbalanced, you feel the negative effects outweighing the positivity. The use of Traditional Chinese Medicine will help you ensure balance, so you can get through each day with a harmonious drive.
Acupuncture is a holistic therapy that helps strengthen the immune system, prevent disease, reduce or relieve pain, and improve mood, energy and function of affected areas of the body by inserting, manipulating, and retaining very fine sterile filiform needles into specific acu-points on the body.
Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine that originated in China over 5,000 years ago, making it one of the oldest and best-known practices of the alternative therapies.
Cupping is another Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment. This is a method of stimulating acupuncture points by applying suction through a bamboo, glass or plastic jar, in which a partial vacuum has been created. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place.
Cupping has been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins. Cupping is also used for lower back aches, sprains, soft tissue injuries, and helping relieve fluid from the lungs in chronic bronchitis.
