Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine has been used in China for centuries and is backed by a long and rich history of development, use and research. Chinese herbal medicine is unique in that the diagnosis and treatments are based on the theories of traditional Chinese medicine. Besides discussing your health issues with you, a practitioner of herbal medicine uses other signs and symptoms such as those found in your tongue and pulse to form a TCM diagnosis. The common cold, for example, may be diagnosed as "wind-cold invasion" and herbs which dispel wind and warm cold may be prescribed. Herbs administered within Chinese herbal medicine are usually raw and cooked into a tea, in a powder form and taken with hot water or in a pill form.
Cupping can be described as somewhat like a reverse massage. Instead of pushing the muscles into the body to get them to relax, cupping involves placing glass, bamboo or plastic jars on the skin and creating a vaccum by suctioning out the air, gently pull the muscle tissue upward to help it release. The purpose of cupping is to enhance circulation, help relieve pain, pull out the toxins that linger in your body's tissues.
