A unique electromagnetic, far spectrum infrared heat lamp that won several international awards.
The main part of the lamp is made of ceramic disc coated with 33 different minerals that easily get absorbed by the body.
The heat of the lamp is often placed over acupuncture needles. The heat travels deep down with the needle in the acupuncture points and creates a better impact on the energy flow.
In addition to the wonderful therapeutic effect and feeling, this lamp will also reduce significantly painful conditions, gynaecological problems, stimulate blood circulation, reduce inflammations and oedema, accelerate the fusion of broken bones and sports injuries.
From the traditional Chinese point of view: the TDP lamp opens stagnations, treats heat and cold, clears damp and stimulates the Qi.
A great treatment for chronic, stubborn pain situations, sciatica and rheumatoid arthritis.
In this treatment, there will be a pulse device connected to the needles in the acupuncture points by wires. A very low level of pulses is added in between two acupuncture points, and you might feel a mild tingling sensation.
This treatment empowers muscle movement, and that causes pain relief, accelerates fusion and reconstructions of bones.
From a traditional Chinese point of view: electro-acupuncture helps to open stagnations in the blood/Qi circulations which might be caused by the pathogenic cold, wind, damp or heat. Especially effective in treating neuromuscular disorders.
During acupressure, I will manipulate and massage acupuncture points by pressing them with fingers, hand, or professional acupressure device.
Acupressure is an effective non-needle technique that creates a movement of blood and Qi in a specific location or in the whole head and body.
Used in case of fear from needles, pain that gets relieved by massaging it, nausea and vomiting, headaches, muscle pain, stomach-ache.
This treatment can be very relieving, as it decreases muscle tension, improves circulation, influences the autonomic nervous system and releases endorphins (natural pain relievers).
From the traditional Chinese perspective, the target of the treatment is to restore health and balance, regulate yin & yang, treat energy fields, connect body and mind, emotions and spirit.
In addition to the acupuncture needle treatment, after removing the needles, I will also massage the acupressure relevant points for reducing pain and stress, open stagnations, improve blood circulation, and contribute your overall health and wellbeing.
The combination also regulates the autonomic nervous system activity, stimulates the lymphatic and hormonal system.
The combination is used as a treatment for instability, joint problems, sprains, arthritis, sciatica, neck and back pain, sinusitis and bronchitis.
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that there are acupuncture points on the ear that represent all the areas and organs in the body.
The ear needles I use are very small press acupuncture needles on the acupuncture points in the ear. Unlike regular needles, they stay on your ear with a plaster that is connected to the needle. This will stay in your ear for no more than two or three days, without interrupting your regular routine, and you need to remove the plaster yourself.
It is specially used for emotional situations, addictions such as smoking/alcohol, stress, insomnia, migraines and fertility.
A very ancient traditional Chinese treatment, in use today especially for muscle pain and toxin cleansing from the body.
During this treatment I will put special cups on your skin, suction with heat or air will be performed on the skin. The cups might be glass cups or plastic cups. The suction creates a bulb in the skin and the colour changes to purple from the widening of the blood vessels.
The glasses will stay on your skin for a few minutes, and the marks might stay for as many as ten days after the treatment.
This form of treatment is added to the body acupuncture treatment.
A form of direct heat, a burning moxa, close to the skin surface or if attached to the top of the needle it gets directly into the acupuncture point.
Mainly used to treat internal cold or stagnation.
Especially used for fertility, local stable pain, or heel pain.
It is incorporated with the body acupuncture.
This beauty treatment has been known for thousands of years in the East and was given to the female relatives of the emperors as a royal treatment. Only in recent years has the West been exposed to it. This anti-ageing treatment is completely natural; it reduces age marks and renews the facial skin.
The treatment combines a relaxing face acupressure and the insertion of needles in the face, scalp and body. The treatment will fully open the body and mind.
Natural face cream, gua-sha (skin cleaning in a special traditional technique), Chinese roller, and Japanese acupuncture needles, tiny, flexible silicone-coated needles that are suitable for facial acupuncture.
The treatment stimulates blood flow, oxygen and energy to the facial skin, drains toxins and causes increased production of collagen and elastin that relaxes and stretches the skin.
Relaxing and pleasant treatment, the improvement is already noticeable from the first treatment, general glow in the facial skin, the face looks about 5-10 years younger after a series of 10 sessions, without side effects and chemicals.
The Chinese diet is focused on the Qi that has been created from the food that we eat and its internal effects.
Therefore from inspecting your tongue and general condition, I can advise you which types of food are recommended to consume, individually for you.
I will stimulate the activities of all your digestive system, relax your mind, and give you the right advice for lifestyle changes.
Abdomen Acupressure and Ear needling will empower the results of the treatment. In the case of a diet, we will begin a process in order to achieve the goals we that we set.
From TCM point of view: There are five flavours that explain our energy of the organs at the food level.
According to the five-element theory, the tastes are: bitter, sweet, spicy, salty and sour.
