Professional Acupuncture Services in Oxley
Being an acupuncturist in Oxley, we can deliver a wide variety of holistic treatments and services that help to provide a helpful and balancing level of care using an integrative approach to the wonders of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Our array of therapy options can assist in helping to relieve numerous conditions and body complaints that come with life’s tensions.
Acupuncture Massage Oxley
TCM has four main branches, of which acupuncture is one. Acupuncture uses thin needles that are expertly inserted into specific points of the body. These points of the body are chosen based on the ailment or discomfort which a person is experiencing. Once the needle has been inserted, an enhanced flow of energy – or Qi – will begin to course through the body, helping to assist in healing.
At our acupuncture massage in Oxley, our treatments can help aid in the relief of (McDonald & Janz, 2017):
Aches and pains
Chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting
Chronic headaches and migraines
As an experienced acupuncturist in Oxley, we offer the traditional method of ‘fire cupping’ which uses specialised glass cups that are heated with fire in order to create strong suction on the skin. This ancient form of healing therapy is renowned within TCM for its benefits.
Cupping has become a common form of treatment that can be used to assist with (Zhou, P. et al., 2019):
Relieving acute, chronic and general muscular pain
Improving blood and lymph circulation as well as the flow of Qi
Reducing sore trigger points
Promoting the range of motion and joint mobility
Reducing toxins within the body
Cupping also offers the unique attribute of acting as a diagnostic method in Chinese Medicine. At the conclusion of a cupping session, cup marks may immediately appear which can range in colour from deep purple to bright red. The colours of these cup marks provide various levels of awareness of the stagnation that is occurring within the body and issues that may be present (Zhou, P. et al., 2019). The amount of time taken for the discolouration to fade away can also act as an indicator of Qi, blood and lymph circulation which is important for bodily wellbeing. On some occasions, one may experience clear liquid seeping through the pores at the site of cupping, which can indicate internal dampness (Zhou, P. et al., 2019).
Tui na Massage Therapy
Tui na – pronounced twee-nah – is another one of the TCM branches.
Tui na is an older style of massage that assists in stimulating the flow of Qi to promote and enhance the balance and harmony within the body. Using similar principles to that of acupuncture, the focus of Tui na is to work along channels of the body using stretches, pressure points, and joint rotations to stabilize the body’s flow of energy (Chengnan, 2000).
While Western styles of massage therapy only focus on muscles, bones and joints, without considering the flow of Qi, Tui na’s primary aim is to help relieve the emotional blockages that are stored within the body as emotions are believed to block the flow of Qi if it is unregulated and unresolved. Tui na can assist in helping to relieve musculoskeletal ailments, womb support, gut imbalances, stress whilst promoting emotional regulation and relaxation (Chengnan, 2000).
