Chinese Medicine comprises of several different modalities: Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Gua Sha, Cupping, and Moxibustion.
Acupuncture works as a way of balancing the energies of the body’s internal environment in order to bring the body into a state of health and harmony. Acupuncture uses hair-like needles inserted into the body at various points where energy concentrates. Each point has a specific function, that when combined with each other, create a symbiotic effect in the body that allows the body to heal and repair. Acupuncture can treat various diseases, from the common cold, to insomnia, to irritable bowel syndrome, to even anxiety.
Herbal Medicine is comprised of herbs (plant and animal based) that are prescribed to be taken either internally, or topically, as well as the use of herbs incorporated into food therapy. Herbal formulas are used as a way to extend the acupuncture treatment in between sessions. Food therapy is something that uses herbs (some of which are foods), and the whole foods that we eat in a way that can support our bodies in a particular time of year (usually for the seasons). The combination of foods that we eat can greatly affect our health and healing abilities. Food therapy is a systematic way of doing so.
Gua Sha loosely translates as ‘scraping’, where a tool is used to scrape the skin to relieve congestion. In Chinese Medicine, ‘Where there is stagnation, there is pain.’, is a commonly used phrase. Therefore, using gua sha is helpful in cases of muscle strain or spasm, where the area may not be getting proper blood and energy flow. Gua sha is also very helpful to relieve the common cold, fever, stiffness, nausea, and even chronic internal organ disorders.
Cupping is the application of cups to the body with the use of fire to create a suction inside the cup. The fire is removed, and the cup is placed on the skin, the skin is drawn up into the cup that allows stagnation and congestion deep under the skin to come up to the surface. The cups are used to relieve muscle strain, spasm, common cold, fever, stiffness and nausea to name a few.
Moxibustion (Moxa) is the use of heat to heal the body in various ways. Traditionally, the herb used in moxa treatments is Mugwort (Ai ye). Mugwort is know for it’s extreme high heat that is harnessed in various ways to heal the body. In Chinese Medicine, heat is what heals the body, by either putting heat (energy) into the body, or in some cases, using the heat of Mugwort to pull heat out of the body. Moxa can be used above the skin, directly on the skin, or even on top of needles.
Massage therapy is a way of manipulating the skin, fascia and muscles to open tight spots in the body, relieve pain, and increase circulation. Although massage can be very relaxing, it has many health benefits when done regularly. Therapeutic massage is a type of massage that is done with the intention to not only relax, but to also heal. By utilizing the Chinese Acupuncture meridians that flow along the body, the massage is tailored to each individual.
Have you ever practiced yoga, and found that there are some asanas that you just can’t do? Either because you have an old injury, or are just plain inflexible? Bheemashakti Yoga is a very different approach to yoga. In the beginning stages of a Bheemashakti yoga practice, asanas are not done as a part of your daily practice. Each session is structured to target areas of inflexibility (hips are most common and biggest focal point) and weakness (weak back or front of the body). In order to increase flexibility and strength, kapalbhati breathing and repetitive movements called kriyas are used to strengthen and open the body. Find out more
Classical Feng Shui is the use of a compass (Lo Pan) to determine where a home or business sits and faces, and combining these directions with the date the home/office was constructed to create an ‘astrological chart’ for the space. This astrological chart of a home can show areas that need to be remedied in order for energy to flow properly. Each area is remedied according to the five elements – earth, fire, water, metal and wood – where they are either added to, or taken out of a particular area to create the optimal energetic flow of a space. Accompanying a Feng Shui consultation is a space clearing, that intentionally removes negative energies that linger in a space. Feng Shui can be used to help in areas of health, wealth, family, career and success. Find out more
