Frequently asked questions

1. What is Chinese Medicine and how does it work?

Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long history dated back thousands of years. It encompasses the belief that the body is a holistic entity and aims to restore any imbalances in the body caused by external and internal factors including emotional upset.

Through the process of inquiring about one’s daily life, inspecting the tongue and complexion of one’s face, listening and olfaction, a Chinese medicine practitioner makes a diagnosis based on the Chinese medicine theory principles. Consequently, many modalities including acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, moxibustion and tuina can be applied to promote the body’s natural healing process in restoring the imbalance.

2. What is acupuncture and does it hurt?

Acupuncture is the insertion of fine, single use needles into “merdians” along ones body, the needles are used to stimulate points along ones body to promote the body’s own healing effects.

When you receive acupuncture treatment, you will feel a tap when we insert the needle and then you may feel a dull sensation, which is your body grasping onto the needles which we call “de qi”.
