Jing Luo (channels and collaterals) is the physiological and philosophical pathways of qi(energy) and blood flow throughout the body. Acupuncture is the technique to regulate Jing Luo to restore the normal flow of qi and blood and balance the functions of the organs. The conductive metal needles perceive natural resonance of electric and magnetic fields to harmonize the energy of the meridians. Electrostimulation is modern technique to enhance this function of acupuncture treatment.
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine
The role of herbs in treating a disease is to restore the balance and correct hypo/hyper-activity of the channels and organs. TCM formulae are the compilations of more than 2000 years of knowledge to increase the therapeutic effectiveness and minimize the toxicity and side effect of herbs. We use only the GMP certified concentrated granule forms of herbs to give you high-potency, easy-to-take herbal medicine.
The negative pressure applied by Cupping therapy increases local circulation and moves congestion of qi and blood. Thus, it creates an excellent therapeutic result to relieve pain and reduce swelling. We offer a variety of cupping techniques according to your needs such as dry cupping, fire cupping, slide cupping gua sha, etc.
Tuina is a therapeutic acupressure massage guided by the theory of TCM using hands-on manipulations on the skin and muscles innervated by the affected meridians. It is more specific than general in treating pain, tightness and numbness of muscle and tissue.
Acupuncture is only a half of a word, and Moxibustion is the other half. "A disease that may not be treated by acupuncture may be treated by moxibustion" says Miraculous Pivot. We are one of very few acupuncture clinic in Vancouver that offer extensive moxibustion treatment for those who suffer the condition of cold congestion or Yang deficiency. Moxa will warm up the meridians and expel cold to induce smooth qi and blood flow and strengthen collapsing Yang.
Ear is one of the three effective reflexology area of the body along with hands and feet but the most effective by being closest to the brain. Corresponding points of the ear to the affected area and organs of the body can be stimulated using electrostimulation, magnetic seed or acupuncture needles to continuously promote healing in your daily life.
Though today, we know the list can be more extensive, the World Health Organization (WHO) had already recognized and published the following list of common conditions proven to respond to Acupuncture treatment in 1979.
At this clinic, many clients have benefited from our treatments and we will be happy to hear from you and help you with your ailments.
