Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

 

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine is guided by ancient oriental philosophy and a body of practical treatments which have been built up and used successfully for more than two and a half thousand years. TCM aims to treat the whole body holistically, and not just deal with a specific set of symptoms. Principal technique include:

Massage Treatments:

Acupuncture

 

 

Acupuncture treats  a wide range of conditions  including stress, anxiety, headaches, constipation, respiratory and digestive problems.  It is very effective in relieving pain, including neck and back pain.

 

First, your therapist begins with a full consultation, after which you relax on the treatment table.  Your therapist inserts small needles along energy lines in your body called meridians.

Fertility Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture has been shown to increase the success rate of IVF as well as reducing the possibility of miscarriage. An authoritative review of seven scientific studies in the British Medical Journal in February 2008 showed that in truly scientific ("double blind") test conditions genuine acupuncture treatment could increase a woman's chance of becoming pregnant by 65% on average.

Treatment by TCM is effective:

 

 • As a stand-alone treatment

• When no physical cause for infertility is found

• In conjunction with, or as preparation for, IVF treatment

• When IVF treatment has failed

 

The ways in which TCM prepares the body for conception and pregnancy include:

 

• Stimulation of acupoints: Acupuncture restores balance, enhances energy, improves organ function and harmonises the reproductive and hormonal systems.

 

• Improving blood flow to the organs involved in pregnancy: This results in a stronger uterine lining.

 

• Changing hormone levels: Hormones impact the menstrual cycle to help regulate ovulation.

 

• Improving sperm production and quality: Acupuncture assists male fertility by enhancing well-being, promoting mental relaxation, improving blood flow and altering levels of relevant hormones.

 

 

Acupressure

 

Acupressure is a form of treatment which avoids the use of invasive needles and which aims to achieve the same outcome as acupuncture in unblocking meridians to rebalance the body's "Qi" (pronounced "Chee") Most people find that it brings with it a release of physical and emotional tensions, an enhanced sense of relaxation and a renewed sense of wellbeing.

Reflexology

 

In TCM the soles of the feet contain reflex points which correspond to all parts of the body including internal organs. These areas are arranged in such a way as to form a map of the body in the feet. Users of reflexology have found that the most common outcomes from treatment include a sense of relaxation and an increased ability to cope with stressand anxiety pain relief and with helping to lift mood and promoting a source of wellbeing (source: cancer Research UK website 2014).

 

Deep Tissue Massage

 

 

The Therapist begins by doing a postural analysis and asks about any muscles or trigger points that require special attention.

 

Deep tissue massage can help ease tension, increase your range of movement and relieve chronic pain.   During this type of massage,   firmer pressure is used and more specific attention is paid to muscle knots and  trigger points.

 

 

Cupping Therapy

 

Cupping therapy uses pressure from vacuum cups to warm up and unblock meridians by clearing away congestion from the soft tissues. It is an excellent treatment for Arthritis, muscle / sinew pain and also Cold and Flu.

Moxibustion

 

Moxibustion works by applying heat to certain locations of the body by using "moxa wool" (a kind of Chinese herb).
