There's more to acupuncture than needles! We are all energy, or Qi, which is a combination of Yin and Yang. The healthier we are, the easier our Qi flows, harmonising the Yin and Yang. Imbalances occur because of things like diet, lifestyle, or stress, and can cause sickness, pain, emotional distress, digestive or sleep disorders, and more.
Using a variety of tools and techniques to increase, decrease or move Qi, acupuncture improves your health, well-being, and awareness beyond where you were originally. Combine this with simple lifestyle and dietary changes, and things begin to look up!
Qigong is the wise grandfather of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), from which sprang acupuncture, massage, and herbal medicine. Literally translated as "energy work," qigong is often described as Chinese yoga. Its meditative exercises are performed in time with breathing and awareness—they can be done fast, slow or stationary, as well as standing or seated. They can be performed individually, partnered, or in a group setting.
Qigong is a tool for self-cultivation or improvement, be it physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. Offered exclusively or in conjunction with other TCM therapies.
Tui Na Massage
Tui na is Chinese medical massage that incorporates deep-tissue, therapeutic, relaxation, and acupressure techniques and has been around for a few thousand years. It works on your muscles, tendons, and ligaments as well as on your energy channels, and is as theoretically sound as acupuncture.
People use tui na for stuff like sprained ankles, strained backs, the tight neck and shoulders most of us seem to get, and all kinds of headaches, as well as anxiety/depression, insomnia, menstrual pain, digestive disorders, and stress. It's a unique situation, indeed, that'd find tui na not up to the task.
