 What is Oriental Medicine? 

Oriental medicine is used for treatment of many ailments in China, and it dates back to ancient times.  In China many hospitals still use it alongside modern medicine.   

Treatment involves one, or a combination of the following;  

Massage - Acupuncture - Herbs 

Oriental Medicine is first and foremost based on preventative measures.  This provides the knowledge for injury prevention and management.

 Through the diagnosis we can determine the body’s weaknesses, which will invariably lead to further problems or pain. By applying the appropriate treatment, it can keep a person healthy, focused and active. This can dramatically reduce the amount of lost working hours and income due to sickness.  It also enables athletes to recover from soreness and injuries as well as improve endurance levels.
 
Oriental Medicine treats the body as a whole.  Excessive stress can lead to a wide range of physical and mental problems, including organ and muscular dysfunction (examples are Irritable Bowel Sydrome (IBS) and Sciatica). With specialised treatments and advice, these and many other conditions can be easily treated.

Each treatment is tailored to the individual and works well for many ailments.

Chinese massage involves releasing and stretching tight tense muscles with gentle manipulation. It’s more effective than relaxing massage, providing longer term benefits. Helps prevent injury for sports/dance performance.

Heated stone massage brings a unique combination of warmth and pressure helping to relax and relieve tension areas.

Need to know:

A 60 minute treatment involves: 

   consultation and diagnosis (5-10 mins)

   explanation of techniques where required (5-10 mins)

   actual treatment time is normally 45 mins 

How to prepare for the treatment?  

Wearing loose garments help when attending treatments, because it is often necessary to carry out muscle testing and orthopedic challenges (these diagnose structural problems), and this is more comfortable when carried out clothed. 


Treatments do not need to involve acupuncture, if you are needle phobic, please don’t hesitate to mention it as there are many other forms of treatment. 

A questionnaire will need to be filled out on the first visit, so feel free to turn up a few minutes early to save time.
