Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to help decrease the anxiety related to stopping a drug, decrease craving durations and help the body detox in a safe natural healthy way.
Ovarian reserve is something that cannot be reversed. As females we are born with all the eggs we will ever have and gradually lose them through each menstrual cycle. However, the quality of the eggs we do have can be improved. The two big factors that I recommend to my clients are consuming high amounts of antioxidants and acupuncture.
A functioning digestive system is the foundation for health. When the digestive system isn’t working properly, other systems stop working correctly as well. Abdominal pain, excess gas, constipation, diarrhea, anxiety, brain fog, fatigue, malaise, arthritis, and itchy skin could indicate that your digestive system isn’t working correctly. An impaired digestive system has also been linked to multiple conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and autoimmune conditions. To restore health to my patients I prioritize supporting intestinal health and restoring the integrity of the intestinal barrier.
Cranial osteopaths spend four, and up to seven years learning their profession. At one level the osteopathy benefits can help improve posture and energy flow throughout the body. This energy flow can be developed further as cranial osteopaths are also trained to move energy, rebalance it and deliver it to where it is needed. It´s a small step from Cranial Osteopathy to Hands on Healing.
What about short term or acute insomnia? What are the factors? New York Times report that the following are major contributing factors to transient insomnia:
•Traumatic and stressful events; Pain
•Female hormonal fluctuations (menses, pregnancy, menopause)
•Jet Lag, travelling
•Change in light exposure and environment (change in temperature)
•Stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine and medication
It’s interesting to see all these variables that contribute to insomnia in Western medicine because the Traditional Chinese medicine perspective have always approached all disease and health conditions in a holistic and individual basis. This means no cookie cutter treatments!
Coffee, coffee, coffee….Cha Cha Cha!! Energizing, exhilarating and stimulating. All properties of an amazing drink in one small sweet or bitter (depending on how you take) cuppa. Yet, is it really that good for you? Can it really energize/re-energize you? YES and NO!
We are all fascinated with the thought of being able to tell the future, we are familiar with the magical mystical powers of the crystal ball or having our palms read. Weather we believe these methods reveal the truth or not, it at the very least peeks our curiosity. The tongue according to Chinese medicine gives us a glimpse of the state of our health in the same way that palmists can read our futures. The tongue, a muscle we use to speak, eat and sing can tell a lot about our circulation, our metabolism, digestive concerns and much much more.

Eczema is a common childhood skin condition that is characterized by being extremely itchy. The skin is typically dry, with redness or loss of colour. In adults eczema affects flexor surfaces such as the elbow and behind the knees. In infants and children the face, scalp, and limbs are affected and the rash can be oozing and crusting in appearance. The most common type of eczema is atopic dermatitis, and these two terms are often used interchangeably.
Acupuncture has been shown to improve brain function, recall and attention. Scientific tests using MRI scans have shown positive results for vascular dementia and other degenerative problems when cerebral circulation was greatly improved with the acupuncture treatments. In clinical practice, we see people perform better in interviews and exams, react appropriately and calmly to stressful situations and vastly improve memory and mood.
Chinese Medicine offers a combination of Auricular Acupuncture (ear acupuncture) and Chinese herbal medicine to reduce hyperactivity as well as improve concentration and focus.
Often massage therapy is specifically marketed to adults, but it can also be beneficial for both children and teenagers. Studies have shown that short regular massages have positive results for children dealing with ADD and ADHD helping the child to become calmer and more focused.
