ELIMINATE PAIN WITH CHINESE MEDICINE

Nobody wants to be in pain so why not seek help and allow us to demonstrate our ability to ease your suffering with a combination of well-researched TCM treatments. Acupuncture is an effective and trusted treatment for the relief of pain. The therapy works by stimulating nerve points with needles, which cause a dull ache in your muscles and joints. This sends a message to your central nervous system saying that you need endorphins (morphine like chemicals produced in your brain) to be released into your body. These endorphins then act to block pain messages allowing the brain to focus on the more important task of healing. Research studies have shown that acupuncture is especially effective on neck, back and shoulder pain, arthritis, fibro myalgia, tennis elbow, sciatica and osteoporosis, headaches and rheumatoid pain. So why let yourself or another suffer pain or tablet side effects any longer. Visit your local TCM Energie Clinic and let our practitioners get to the root cause of your problem - treating the body as a whole rather than just the symptoms.

RELIEVE STRESS & ANXIETY WITH ACUPUNCTURE

Overcoming the stresses and strains of daily life can be draining at best. Sometimes it becomes just too much and we feel anxious, frightened and generally low. In times of great anxiety our Qi energy cannot flow freely and is likely to become blocked. The Chinese believe that Qi is all around us - the world is made up of it. For example Qi is the reason our blood circulates, our limbs move, our stomach digests food and our hair grows. To remain in a balanced and untroubled state of mind our Qi energy must be flowing freely throughout the nervous system. At TCM Energie Clinic, we use a number of soothing techniques, which focus on freeing up any energy blockages and revitalising the nervous system. So why not take back your motivation for life by popping into our clinic or calling our information line 044 201 9988 to book a FREE NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATION with one of our highly experienced practitioners.

IBS RELIEF

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) can be a debilitating intestinal disorder with symptoms ranging from cramping to flatulence, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea and nausea. Chinese Medicine believes that IBS presents an imbalance between the liver and the spleen. For example the spleen is considered responsible for the taking in of food converting it to energy and supplying that energy to the organs of the body. And the livers job is to keep energy flowing smoothly so that everything works effectively. When liver energy is not flowing smoothly, it has a knock on effect on the spleen, which disrupts the digestive system - thus causing the unpleasant symptoms of IBS. In TCM Energie our treatments are aimed at restoring liver and spleen harmony, thus bringing the body back to a healthy balance. Our practitioners achieve this by strengthening the body, mobilising the liver energy, improving digestion and correcting spleen function. Chinese therapies that successfully treat IBS are acupuncture, moxibustion and herbs. Food allergies can also be a trigger of IBS at least for some people. In TCM Energie we also offer a comprehensive testing for food and air allergens. This can lead to improvements in diet, which can directly correspond to improved symptoms.

INCREASE FERTILITY WITH ACUPUNCTURE

There are many reasons why couples have difficulty conceiving - irregular menstruation, hormone imbalance, cold uterus, low sperm count to name a few. Whatever the reason infertility can be a major cause of stress and hopelessness in otherwise healthy couples. Acupuncture has been known to dramatically increase fertility by invigorating and increasing sperm count in males and reducing stress and regulating the menstrual cycle in females. A recent German study conducted April 2007 used two groups of woman experiencing fertility problems, to determine the effect of acupuncture on IVF treatments. In the first group acupuncture treatments were carried out 25 minutes before embryo transfer and 25 minutes after the embryo was inserted into the uterus. In the second group no acupuncture treatments were conducted. Study findings showed a successful pregnancy rate of 42.5% in the first group compared to 26.3% in the second group. These findings expressed a significant difference of 16.2% in the pregnancy rate of the group that had acupuncture treatments. In TCM Energie we want to help you find the underlying problem of disharmony that is preventing conception. Our treatments for fertility and male impotence disorders include acupuncture, acupressure, moxibustion and herbal medicines.

SINUS RELIEF WITH ACUPUNCTURE

For many winter can be a dreaded event bringing with it blocked noses and seasonal colds. If your sinus pathways don't drain properly this can result in difficulty breathing through your nose, facial pain, sore throat, ear infection, headache, persistent cough and other symptoms. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) uses a combination of herbs and acupuncture to correct this condition. Our acupuncturists work by stimulating the small channels connecting the sinuses to the nasal passages. They do this by draining your sinuses, which loosens mucus and encourages movement in your head. This allows the mucus to drain into the nose from the sinuses and air to flow into the sinuses from the nose. Stimulating these congestion points can keep the sinuses clear and infection free. And more importantly it can stimulate the body's ability to dissolve phlegm, fight infection and build strength. After receiving acupuncture many of our patients say that they can breathe freely even after one treatment. So why suffer sinus or any other irritation for one day more. Call into TCM Energie today and let our practitioners help you achieve relief without the usual side effects.

HEAL SKIN DISORDERS WITH CHINESE MEDICINE

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes that skin disorders are generally caused by internal disharmonies and environmental influences such as heat, wind, damp, dryness and cold. Once these imbalances are removed from the system, the skin naturally heals. In treating skin disorders practitioners in TCM Energie Clinic take into account the type of skin eruption, skin colour, body temperature, diet, daily activities, climate and emotions that are associated with the problem. Details such as the onset, duration and frequency of the skin disorder with any other signs of imbalance in the digestive system, sleep patterns and the immune system are also examined. Effective treatments for these conditions are acupuncture, acupressure, massage and herbal medicine. These therapies strengthen the immune system thereby decreasing skin sensitivity, releasing toxins, repairing and nourishing the skin, stopping infections and purifying the blood.
Treating skin conditions with Chinese Medicine is well worth the time and patience it requires. In general results are seen as early as one week into treatment but can often take a number of weeks to clear up completely. This is because we are balancing the body from the inside out rather than just masking symptoms.

ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION AND TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE

Many men in all parts of the globe suffer from male impotence. Erectile dysfunction is characterised by the inability of the individual to achieve or maintain an erection until climax when making love. The process of erection takes place when there is a presence of both physical and mental stimuli. Also the brain initiates the act of lovemaking by releasing chemicals into the male sex organs. An absence of the above stimulants can hamper the erectile process. Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine can provide a safe natural alternative to men suffering from this disorder. Clinical studies have shown that Traditional Chinese Treatments (TCM) can be highly successful in increasing circulation and promoting blood flow to the areas treated.
Our TCM practitioner makes a diagnosis based on individual symptoms and then determines whether acupuncture or herbal medicine or a combination of both would be the best means of treatment. At the end of sessions patients have reported increased libido and vitality in the areas treated.
ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION - Treats Low Sperm Count, Male Infertility, Ejaculation and Male Impotence.

ACHIEVE HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSS WITH CHINESE MEDICINE

Successful long-term weight loss is sometimes difficult to achieve. Many people have tried diets lost weight and later gained back the weight plus some additional pounds. The treatments Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) uses to treat weight loss are acupuncture, acupressure, massage and herbal medicines - all of which naturally boost your body system. According to TCM good health equals sufficient Qi (energy) moving through your body system. If there isn't enough Qi or the energy becomes blocked in the spleen or the liver and weight gain results. TCM believes that when your flow of Qi is strong and your body is in balance, weight problems will naturally disappear and a healthy weight will be maintained. Chinese Medicine works in a variety of ways to help you lose weight. It seeks to boost metabolism, increase circulation, reduce cravings, suppress appetite and improve bowel movement. In TCM Energie our consultations for weight loss begin with our practitioners asking questions, which will help them determine the main cause of weight gain. For example if a patient has a craving for sweet tastes, this information tells the practitioner that their spleen need attention - a craving for salt tells the practitioner that it is the kidneys that are out of balance. If the practitioner decides that the best course of action is to improve the absorbsion of food and nutrients and increase patient bowel movement then acupuncture and massage will be used to stimulate points on the abdomen. Many patients report a marked decline in appetite and cravings with treatments of acupuncture and massage alone but herbs can definitely enhance the effectiveness of weight loss treatment. If your practitioner decides to prescribe this medicine then specific herbs will be chosen for the purpose of promoting a healthy digestion, energising the body system, augmenting Qi and improving the elimination of water, toxins and waste products. The benefit of using Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for weight loss is that unlike other medications, there are no harmful side effects and no chance of addition. So don't lose hope if you've struggled with weight for a long time. Remember your weight represents a plea for help from your body - once the imbalance has been addressed the fat will fall off and the new YOU will be revitalised and energised with the motivation to perfectly maintain a natural and healthy weight.
