One of the most classic and esoteric traditional medicines in China, Acupuncture uses a small needle to pierce the body, stimulating the specific acupuncture points. It enables the body to enhance the body's natural resistance against diseases, improve its immune system, promote self-healing ability, and regulate energy distribution within the body. This results in the body’s ability to recover from diseases and receive health care naturally with no side effects.
Cupping is a method of health maintenance, through negative pressure of skin suction to stimulate acupuncture points on the surface of the body. Through the muscle and bone meridians, the internal body system gets the corresponding conditioning to enable qi and blood flow, thus strengthening the body. Cupping can be used for weight loss and removing body dampness and toxin, especially in a humid country like Singapore.
Scrapping, also known as Gua Sha, uses an apparatus to scrap meridian acupuncture points, through benign stimulation, thus reducing meridian acupuncture point congestion and improving blood circulation.
Scrapping plays a role in removing diseases, dredging meridians, relieving muscles and Qi, activating blood stasis, and reducing swelling and pain. Modern science has proven that Scrapping can dilate capillaries to increase sweat gland secretion, promote blood circulation, and have an immediate effect on wind chill paralysis caused by hypertension, heat stroke, muscle soreness, etc.
Moxibustion uses heat from moxa pillar made from moxa leaves to stimulate the acupuncture points or specific parts of the body. With the help of warm skin action, it enables the skin meridians to get warm, activating blood circulation. Moxibustion can be used to treat blood stagnation and meridian blockage caused by various diseases, including menstrual diseases and infertility. Moxibustion can also replenish Qi and nourish blood, thus improving Qi and harmonizing blood within the body, resulting in the production of antibodies and improving the immune function, and preventing the invasion of viruses into the body.
