针 灸

As per traditional acupuncture theories, there are 14 energy channels running vertically along the length of the human body called “meridians”. Each Meridian is linked to a specific organ and when the energy flow along these meridian lines is blocked, illness can occur.

Acupuncture involves inserting tiny, thin needles into specific points in the body to stimulate meridian flow and positively influence the general health of your body and mind. For Acute injuries, acupuncture can help reduce inflammation and swelling which if not treated can cause scar tissue or prevent proper joint mobility. (Each needle is encased in sterile packaging for single use).

按照 传统针灸理论,我们人体有 1 4 条能量循行的路径覆盖全身,被称之 为 “ 经络 ” 。每条 经络都与内在脏腑相关联,当这些经络内的能量循环被阻塞时,就会引发疾病。

针灸是将细小的针插入身体的特定穴位,以刺激经络内的气血流动并调整身体和心理的整体健康。对于急性损伤,针灸可以帮助减少炎症和肿胀,以减少瘢痕组织形成并避免关节僵直活动不利。 (每根 针都包装在无菌包装中,仅供单次使用 )


Cupping is a technique that places glass cups on the skin with suction which influences the flow of energy and blood in the body. Its main purpose is to treat muscle and joint pain, predominately on the back, however it can also be used to treat illnesses such as colds and lung infections.

拔罐是一种将玻璃罐放置在皮肤上的技 术,利用吸力来影响体内气血的循行。其主要目的是治疗肌肉和关节疼痛,主要用于背部,但也可用于治疗感冒和肺部感染等疾病 。


Moxibustion is another technique aimed at improving blood flow by adding energy and eliminating cold. This method stimulates specific acupuncture points of the body with heat.

艾灸是另一种改善气血运行、 补气驱寒的治疗方法。这种治疗方法是通过应用艾灸的热力和药力来刺激身体的特定穴位来实现的 。

What to expect
治 疗中将会发生的事 情

Depending on what you are getting treated, you may receive one or more of the treatment methods mentioned above. The appointment will last around an hour and you are expected to leave with a feeling of well-being stimulated by the endorphins released in response to your treatment.

It is expected that you feel no pain throughout your treatment however occasionally you may experience a brief pin prick pain as the needle is inserted or possibly a sense of heaviness or electricity.

根据您所患的疾病,您可能会得到一个或多个上述提到的治 疗方法。治疗时间大约会持续一个小时。治疗后您会觉得疼痛减少,因为您体内的内啡肽通过中医的治疗后得以释放。

您在治 疗期间不会感到太多痛感,可能会在进针的时候有短暂轻微的疼痛,也可能会有酸麻重沉或触电般的针感 。
