Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as Qi, which flows through pathways (meridians) in your body.

 

Acupuncture works by inserting hair-thin needles into specific points along these meridians. The needles are heated during the treatment or mild electric current.

 

Acupuncture improves the body's natural healing abilities and promotes physical and emotional well-being. 

Before Acupuncture and Moxa treatment, Jie uses various diagnostic techniques, including discussing with the client, tongue diagnosis, abdominal diagnosis, pulse evaluation, and meridian exploration.
 
After understanding the patient's physical and mental conditions,
we design a custom treatment. Treatment times vary from 60 to 75 minutes. The treatment might include massage, cupping, and infrared lamp to acupuncture which reduces the discomfort of needles and gives a more relaxing effect.

 

Acupuncture treatment requires 3-5 treatments. Sometimes the customer might need a longer treatment to improve. Depending of their condition.

 

Acupuncture treatment requires the patient's cooperation with changes in diet, exercise, self-healing, and many other aspects. 


TCM acupuncture is used for overall wellness, including:

  • Relieving and managing stress: Accumulated stress can lead to:

 

  • General fatigue.

  • IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

  • Insomnia.

  • PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome).

  • Overweight or obesity.

  • Pain management, including​:

    • Migraines, tension headaches and back aches.

    • Tennis elbow

    • Osteoarthritis.

    • Menstrual cramps.

  • Respiratory disorders, such as allergic rhinitis and asthma

  • Skin disorder and cosmetics issues, such as acne, wrinkles on the face and puffiness.

  • Natural Fertility

Chinese Herbs

Traditional Chinese medicine is a human-centered art.

 

Jie uses Traditional Chinese Medical diagnostic techniques by carefully inquiring about patients' symptoms, observing the tongue, taking the pulse, palpation, etc. 

The individual diagnosis gives clues about the health status of the costumer and body's condition such as excess, cold, heat, blood circulation, digestion, and immunity.  During the treatment at the clinic Jie chooses 4-12  Chinese herbs or 1-2 Chinese patent herbs and prepares a tea for the customer to drink.

Herbs are ground and served as tea bags. The tea is safe, effective, simple, convenient and light. Chinese patent herbs are concentrated pills, which are convenient to take.

Massage requires a perfect combination of anatomical knowledge and tactile sensitivity of the hands.

 

For more than ten years, Jie has completed two exams in classical massage and special massage in Finland.

 

Before studying massage theraphy, she underwent an Ortopedic Manual Therapy (OMT) test to study the state of the muscles and the fascia focused on massaging targeted muscles and areas.  


Massage can help with:

  • Promoting human blood circulation.

  • Relieving muscle soreness and spasms.

  • Accelerating lymphatic return.

  • Helping restore injured muscles.

  • Improving skin elasticity, promoting skin metabolism.

  • Relieving anxiety and depression.

  • Relieving pain.

  • Improving sleep and strengthening immunity.

 

Jie also uses different massage techniques such as:

  • Abdominal massage which makes bowel movements smoother and regulates hormones.

  • Foot massage to regulate body functions.

  • Ear massage for relaxation, pain relief and improve overall function in the body.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy medicine is based on the theory of treating 'like with like'.

Is a natural form of medicine used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. 

Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health.

Jie uses homeopathic remedies mostly as a combination treatment for her acupuncture customers, who need complementary treatment.

Qigong

Qigong is a traditional Chinese method of health care, health preservation, and healing.

 

It is a method of physical and mental exercise that uses breathing adjustment, physical activity adjustments, and consciousness adjustments (breath adjustment, body adjustment, and mind adjustment) as means and aims at strengthening the body, preventing and treating diseases, keeping fit and prolonging life, and developing potentials.

Jie will guide customers with some simple Qigong movements or breathing adjustment methods before the end of the treatment. Additionally guide them to Act on specific acupoints and meridians through mindfulness.

By practicing Qigong on a daily basis, customers can  manage better their mood swings, and maintain peace of mind.

Moxa & Cupping & Guasha & Ear,Foot Reflexology

Moxibustion treatment:

  • In moxibustion, Mugwort (Artemisia argyi) is placed near the acupoints to heat them. But Jie's office also uses heating equipment to replace moxibustion.

Cupping treatment:

 

  • In Cupping, a local suction is created on the skin with the application of vacumed cups. With the help of negative pressure,  the jar is adsorbed on the body surface. The jar is pulled out after 5-10 minutes.

Guasha treatment:

Guasha uses a special scraping board, scraping milk, and scraping oil for sweeping the body.

The shape of the special scraping board is designed according to the anatomical shape of the human body. That is why it is suitable for scraping the meridian points, face, and ear to achieve proper stimulation. 

All symptoms that can be treated by acupuncture and massage, can be treated by Guasha therapy. Jie can uses Aromatherapy to prepare the sweeping oil for each customer.  Then the customer can continue the self-care process in their free time.

Please note that Cupping and Guasha are stimulated by suctioning and pressing parts of the body, resulting in circular cupping marks and Sha marks of pale red and dark purple color which dissapear after a few days. These marks are called "Blood stasis"

In the process of blood stasis metabolism, there is a special enzyme called "blood matrix oxidase-1 (HO-1)".  HO-1 is responsible for decomposing the blood matrix into biliverdin and carbon monoxide(CO), iron.

 

Biliverdin or bilirubin has anti-inflammatory effects, promoting wound repair. CO has the effect of dilating blood vessels, helps to promote circulation in the affected area, and has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.

Ear acupuncture or Ear Zone therapy and Foot reflexology:

  • It is a type of massage or acupuncture in the ear that is designed to find pressure points in and around the ear that, when triggered, can relieve tension in different parts of the body.
