Traditional Chinese Medical
The advantage of TCM practitioners is that we treat the whole person, not just “symptoms” or “diseases.” Everything is connected. We carefully distinguish differences in each person's symptoms and constitution and then find underlying patterns of disharmony.
We can treat any symptom, but our focus is always on getting to the root of the problem. The goal is complete, long-term elimination of all current symptoms and sensitivities. Our focus is on working with the body, not against it. Restore and enhance the body's healing potential rather than simply suppressing signs and symptoms. From this perspective, it is easy to see that we can treat almost any condition.
Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) where small, very fine needles (30 times thinner than injection needles) are inserted into specific points on the body. These points help access a system of channels in the body, known as meridians that are responsible for the circulation of energy. It is believed that when our energy is balanced our bodies become stronger and more effective at dealing with illness or other health conditions.
At Tian Yi, our therapist use the gentlest technique to insert the needles to make sure it's the least pain for you.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
At Tian Yi, our therapist will provide the safest dry cupping along with the special therapeutic grade oil to help with your body circulation.
Traditional Chinese herbal remedies are part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and have been used in China for thousands of years. Traditional Chinese herbal remedies are a large part of TCM. They can be given as pills, teas, powders, liquid extracts or syrups. Hundreds of different types of herbs are used in TCM, and TCM practitioners often use combinations of herbs rather than a single herb.
Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine often use herbal remedies along with other therapies, such as acupuncture, massage and tai chi.
