Acupuncture, Chinese cupping therapy and Moxatherapy

Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific acupuncture points located all over the skin surface along the meridians by the application and manipulation of thin needles. Acupuncture is the preferred procedure for the effective treatment of different painful conditions (e.g. back pain, headaches) and supports the treatment of a wide range of conditions, among others neurosis, depression, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, mental retardation, autism, inflammatory and allergic diseases (particularly respiratory and otolaryngologic ailments), hormonal imbalance, weight loss, post-traumatic and post-operative disorders and nicotine addiction.

Chinese cupping massage stimulates the circulation of blood and body fluids, and helps to remove waste products and toxins from the organism. Moxatherapy is a kind of thermal therapy, wherein precise, corresponding points on the human body are heated. This method originated in ancient Mongolia, where doctors observed the healing properties of heat in the treatment of many diseases characterized by reduced energy.

Laser Acupuncture – is an up-to-date method, rapidly gaining more and more supporters. It involves the stimulation of biologically active points with low-energy laser beams, instead of traditional acupuncture needles. The laser beam is very convenient, user-friendly and safe. Studies confirm that Laser Acupuncture (as well as acupuncture) has a potent anti-inflammatory, analgesic, oedema- reducing and bio-stimulating influence. Laser Acupuncture causes no complications, is painless, non-invasive, safe and very effective treatment, therefore, it is especially proposed for children (particularly recommend for children suffering from recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, and with weak immune resistance) as well as for persons sensitive to classical acupuncture.

Ayurvedic Massage & therapy

An ancient system of natural holistic medicine originating from the Hindu traditional medicine of southern India. The name literally means science, knowledge (veda) of life (ayus). According to Ayurveda, health is a state of inner equilibrium between the body, spirit and mind, and the disease is a disruption in their balanced functioning. Ayurvedic practices are not merely the short- term elimination of specific health problems, but mainly disease prevention by long-term maintenance of a good mental and physical condition.

 


Types of procedures:
  • Hasta Abhyanga – ayurvedic hand massage- a complex head, feet and full body massage with warm Ayurvedic herbal oils and preparations. A massage relaxes and cleanses the body and mind, improves blood and lymph circulation, stimulates the internal organs, releases muscle tension, helps to remove toxins, restores harmony and vitality, relaxes and soothes. It enables to unblock energy channels (nadi), in which life energy (prana) circulates. It is especially recommended for those, who are overtired, stressed, leading a sedentary life, suffering from back pain and insomnia. The use of Ayurvedic herbal oils also stimulates the production of hormones, it is therefore recommended as a natural therapy for infertility.

It is especially recommended for people working with the body – dancers, athletes, martial art adepts.

Cupping massage

Placing cupping glasses is a simple and effective way to mobilize the internal forces of the body. The healing effects of cupping have been used for millennia. In the twentieth century, cupping and other natural methods were replaced with chemical drugs, including antibiotics. Currently, when we see more and more clearly the side effects of the widespread use of pharmaceutical drugs, wherever possible we return to the old proven methods.

The skin, as a multifunctional organ is well innervated and plays a large role in the self-regulation of the body. The cupping glasses placed on the skin stimulate the flow of energy, blood, lymph and affect the work of internal organs. If, when placing cupping glasses, we use knowledge about meridians and acupuncture points, we will significantly increase the effectiveness of the procedure.

Indications for the use of cupping: improvement of well-being, strengthening the body, fatigue, stiffness of the spine, pain in the spine, neck, shoulders, strengthening immunity, cold, allergies, stomach pain, menstrual problems, problems associated with menopause, degeneration of the hip, cosmetic purposes.
