1. Traditional Acupuncture
Most people are familiar with traditional acupuncture as it has been around for thousands of years. We may know what it is, but how acupuncture works is still a mystery to the masses. That is entirely understandable because it takes years to complete training as an acupuncturist.
The basics are that after talking with your acupuncturist about your health, history, and any issues you are dealing with, they will decide how to move forward with the treatment. Your treatment will consist of acupuncture needles placed at specific points that correlate with the body's organs, body systems, and functions.
The needles are used to activate parts of the central nervous system to receive a response or action. You can use the major meridians in the body as a guide or local treatment.
The benefits of acupuncture range from sciatica relief to aid in quitting smoking, weight loss, depression, and so much more! Acupuncture doesn't have to be a treatment for something specific, and you can go for sessions to stay on your wellness journey. Have you ever thought about getting laser acupuncture?
2. Laser Acupuncture
Why use laser acupuncture vs traditional acupuncture? Good question!
Some patients prefer laser acupuncture because it is painless, where though traditional acupuncture is not extremely painful, you still feel the needles. Another reason for laser acupuncture is that it is easier to treat children or geriatric patients than the traditional method.
Have you avoided acupuncture because you are afraid of the thought or feeling of needles? Laser acupuncture is an excellent alternative for those that have an aversion to needles.
Traditional acupuncture has been practised and studied for centuries, whereas laser acupuncture is a newer concept, started in 1975. Get an acupuncture treatment experience like no other when you try laser acupuncture, Adelaide. Chinese herbal medicine often pairs well with acupuncture.
3. Chinese Herbal Medicine
Using Chinese medicine is the application of single or blended plant medicines for the health, wellbeing, and treatment of a wide variety of ailments. Herbs can be familiar such as liquorice root or star anise, but they are more often things you have never heard.
Chinese herbs get taken orally in the form of a tea, tincture, or herbs ground into a powder form. There are plenty of instances when herbs get applied topically, such as creams, salves, or oils.
Major pharmaceutical companies may not tell you this, but many of the herbs can be used instead of replacing or preventing the need for prescription medication from your doctor. Instead of taking aspirin- try Dong Quai herbal remedy for headaches or Ginko Biloba for anxiety.
Chinese herbs come from the earth, not a laboratory. They are used to treat ailments naturally, not to create dependency on medications with a ton of adverse side effects. If you have questions regarding any Chinese herbs, ask one of our TCM practitioners to help you find the answer.
4. Chinese Massage and Feet Reflexology
Unlike Swedish massage, Chinese massage is a more active massage session. Though it can still be quite relaxing, most clients find it more therapeutic. If you prefer deep work or sports like a massage, then you will enjoy this style.
As for foot reflexology- this blows clients away. Your entire body is reflected in your foot. If you have never seen a foot chart, take a look at this one. A reflexology session can be done at the same time as cupping!
5. Fire Cupping and Wet Cupping
Fire cupping is an ancient technique involving placing glass cups on the body and using a cotton ball lit on fire to create suction between the skin and the cup. Wet cupping uses similar processes as fire cupping, but before the cup gets applied to the skin, there is a small prick to puncture the skin so that blood can be drawn out in the process.
Cupping gets used for detoxing the body systems and local areas where the cups get applied. It is also used for muscle pain relief, increased circulation, and range of motion.
After treatment, it is recommended to drink plenty of water to flush out the lymphatic system. The spots where the cups were placed will result in a red mark or bruise-like after effect, which is perfectly normal. They should fade within a week.
6. Gua Sha Massage
Cupping and Gua Sha both work to detox and loosen tight muscles. Known in some parts of the world simply as scraping, Gua Sha is not what you would think of when you hear the word massage. Used for chronic pain relief, lymphatic drainage, and increased circulation.
Gua Sha has become a popular self-care facial ritual for those concerned with fine lines and wrinkles. Though the trend has brought this Traditional Chinese Medicine practice into the home, it is best to leave it to the professionals. Gua Sha is not just for the facial muscles but the entire body.
The tools used for Gua Sha can range from fine crystals and stone to wood, metal, or even plastic. Jade and rose quartz are popular options because they are solid stones and have a cooling effect that feels nice. Gua Sha tools also come in varying shapes, including semi-circles, with grip indents.
They use tools because they can do things that a practitioner's hands can not. They can get deep, and use firm pressure for long periods, and create muscle tension relief.
7. Life Cultivation in Chinese Medicine Prospect
Getting regular bodywork and eating a healthy diet is so important. Putting it all into perspective on your own isn't always easy. Are you looking for a unique approach to wellness?

Don't forget to keep the body physically active with a discipline such as Tai Chi.
8. Tai Chi Qi-Gong
Though Tai Chi is a peaceful practice, it is a form of martial arts and is sometimes referred to as shadowboxing. Used as a form of meditation and exercise, Tai Chi is a flowing and slow-moving practice that focuses on breathing and practising intention.
Qi-Gong is similar to Tai Chi, and they often can blend into one practice. Many will tell you that Qi-Gong is easier to learn, takes less time to master, and can be done in a smaller space than Tai Chi.
People often use Tai Chi and Qi Gong for overcoming stressful times and learning how to manage their emotions. These disciplines are used for physical benefits such as recovery from accidents or injuries, loosening stiff muscles, and improving circulation. You may also notice a boost in immunity, better posture and balance, better digestion, and even better memory.
If you join a class, you'll spend about an hour each session practising and learning. A few times a week, at least 15 minutes each time, will increase the mind, body, and spirit benefits.
Medicinal Diet at Acupuncture Adelaide
Stay fueled up for life (and Tai Chi) with the right foods. A significant part of Traditional Chinese Medicine is eating a healthy, well-balanced diet. If you treat food as your medicine, it is a form of self-respect and can prevent many illnesses.
Do you eat "properly?" Do you have healthy digestion and regular bowel movements? Or, do you feel that your eating habits and nutrition could use some TLC?
Eating for/with the seasons is great for a healthy body. This means more warm hearty foods such as soup in the winter and lighter foods like fruits and vegetables in the summer.
An easy way to do this is to eat what grows locally in each season. This will give your body the freshest food available and will also give your body a nice variety.
Foods that are not recommended to consume are dairy, processed sugars, raw foods, and foods that produce dampness in the body. Signs of dampness include joint pain and swelling, inflammation, excess mucus, and chronic allergies.
For more advice on better eating habits, talk to one of the TCM practitioners in the office. When starting a new diet regimen, it is helpful to flush the body and detox. Get traditional or laser acupuncture Adelaide style to kickstart the detox process!
