Herbal therapy is important in traditional Chinese medicine. It has been used for about two thousands years in China, where herbs are considered fundamental therapy for many acute and chronic conditions. Like acupuncture, Chinese herbs can address unhealthy body patterns that manifest in a variety of symptoms and complaints. The aims of Chinese herbal therapy are to help you regain balance in your body and to strengthen your body’s resistance to disease.
Chinese herbal medicines are mainly plant based, but some preparations include minerals or animal products. They can be packaged as powders, pastes, lotions or tablets, depending on the herb and its intended use. Of the approximately five thousands Chinese herbs that are in use today, four hundreds or so are very commonly used.
Different herbs have different properties and can balance particular parts of the body. Prescribing a particular herb or concoction of herbs means the practitioner’s diagnosis has to take into account the state of the patient’s Yin and Yang, and the elements that are governing the affected organs.
Rather than being prescribed individually, single herbs are combined into formulas that are designed to adapt to the specific needs of individual patients.
Chinese herbs are effective and safe when prescribed by a well-trained herbal practitioner. We only purchase our herbs from highly reputable suppliers who adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). GMPs are guidelines that govern the manufacturing process of a product to ensure that the quality and safety of the product is consistent. Herbs can act on the body as powerfully as pharmaceutical drugs and should be treated with the same caution and respect.

Cupping is a method of applying suction and acupressure by creating a vacuum on the patient's skin. The therapy is used to dispel stagnation—stagnant blood and lymph, thereby improving "chi" flow—to treat internal medical diseases . Cupping also is used on back, neck, shoulder and other musculoskeletal conditions. This ancient therapy tech is used widely in Asian, European and Middle- East culture.
GuaSha( scrapping) is an ancient healing therapeutic practice which began in China centuries ago. In Chinese,"gua" means rub or scrape, and "Sha" is 'reddish, millet-like skin rash' (aka petechiae). Sha is a term used to describe blood stasis in the subcutaneous tissue. When practitioner uses a piece of smooth stone, jade, or horn to scrap the skin with moderate strokes, the Sha will surfaces on the skin as small red petechiae. In this way, GuaSha can release the deep toxin and unblock the obstruction of circulation. GuaSha Therapy is not only used for the healing, but also used for the beauty, diet, relaxation.
Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are applied to Acupuncture points, as needles are. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body, dispel certain pathogenic influences, strength in our immune systems, help prevent disease.
Moxa is usually made from the dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A.vlugaris) or mix with other herbs.

Auricular therapy or ear acupuncture is a form of acupuncture based on the idea that the ear is a micro system, which reflects the entire body, represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear. Conditions affecting the physical, mental or emotional health of the patient can be treatable by stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively.
NADA Protocol (The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association protocol) involves the gentle placement of up to five small acupuncture needles into specific sites on each ear. Research show it help stress, addiction and emotional trauma.
Auricular Seed Therapy is referred to as the “seed-pressure” method. It refers to applying a hard, smooth seed, herb, a pill or drug, or a magnetic pellet on tape, to a selected auricular point, and pressing it properly, to stimulate the point, to treat various diseases. It is the most popular treatment methods under development in the past 25 years.Auricular Treatment, on the other hand, is safe and painless. The patient can even constantly stimulate him/herself by pressing the seeds attached to the acupoints.
In our clinic, ear seeds treatments is always conjunction with acupuncture treatment when it is necessary. This method is also very suitable for children, or those others who are afraid of pain.
Massage therapy is used to help manage a health condition or enhance wellness. It involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body. Massage has been practiced in most cultures, both Eastern and Western, throughout human history, and was one of the earliest tools that people used to try to relieve pain.
