Insomnia, Night sweats, Hot flash, Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Burning tongue:

These symptoms are mainly related to Yin level, normally which is lower than usual. It can be considered as a significant reduction in hormonal levels.

Classical Herbal formulas, flower tea, acupuncture, meridian massage and our special pearl powder can help Yin and Yang’s balance, thus relieving symptoms quickly.

Digestive problem, Gain weight, Bloating

These symptoms are mainly because of Qi’s movement problem. Qi is the most important essence material in body, which is in charge of our organ functions. Once Qi is blocked or going slowly, you will feel bloating or fluid or swelling happening.

Acupuncture, cupping, scraping and meridian massage can always help Qi pass through the whole body smoothly, and accelerate circulation. So you may be surprised that you have gained so much weight because of swelling.

Fatigue, Dizziness, Low energy, Lack of concentration, Memory loss, Incontinence, Hair Loss

These symptoms show your Qi level or energy level is too slow to support your basic organ functions. Opposite to the blocked Qi, it is lack of Qi and Blood.

Moxibustion and Herbal formulas are the most effective ways to generate Qi and Blood. This not only can adjust function disorder, furthermore, it also enhances our immune and defence system.

Joint pain, muscle Tension, Headache

These can happen when there is too much cold and humidity in body. Cupping, massage, scraping and herbal patches are good to remove cold and humidity.

The pain can cause a lack of concentration, stress, insomnia, fatigue, or indigestion, which make us hard to study, work and look after our kids.

How does TCM help menstrual pain?

In TCM, menstrual pain is considered to be caused by blocked blood and Qi. The most common reason is cold, including from food like chilly drinks, iced food and cold weather. So warming our meridians and channels to help Qi and blood cycle smoothly is the main theory in TCM. Women's periods are cycles, so TCM treats menstrual pain through different methods to suit any every stage. Herbal formula and Moxibustion are the most important treatments to unblock Qi and blood.

Whole conception is the theory in TCM, which means we treat not only one system or organ but also the overall condition. After the treatment, you may find your skin looks brighter, or your weight drops down, etc.

Postpartum Treatment

Is Postpartum Therapy Essential?

Women went through massive physical and physiological changes during the pregnancy and birthing process. The common problems due to hormonal changes during and after pregnancy, and blood loss during the birthing process can be addressed through natural herbal and remedies to return the body to a balanced hormonal state and healthy blood levels. A holistic therapeutic approach also improves new mums’ energy levels effectively and in turn boost the production of high quality and quantity breast milk, and support hair growth for those with thinning issues.

The Golden Month of Postpartum

Women perspire more due to the pores opening up post birth, thus cold air or wind easily enters into the body which potentially causes migraines and arthritis aches long after the birth. In addition, while the digestive system is taking its time to recover during postpartum, indulging in raw, icy or cooling food stresses the body, interferes with the digestive system’s recovery, which can show up in symptoms such as diarrhea, bloating, abdominal pains. As a general rule, we advised women who had just given birth to avoid cool air whenever possible and keeping the neck and torso warm when out and about. As for postpartum meals, eating easily
digestible, warm cooked food and drinking lukewarm water or drinks puts the body back on track quickly. The Golden Month of postpartum is between 4 to 6 weeks after birth.
