Why Chinese Oriental Medicine?
As a human being, our body is created by nature; therefore, we must follow nature. For example, we should sleep at night time, go out to do movements in the day time, eat healthy foods regularly, put more clothes on in winter and put fewer clothes on in summer. If we don’t follow nature, we can easily get ill and unable to maintain a healthy state. A healthy state means your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual selves are all healthy. If not, we say you are in a "Half Health State" which means diseases and illness can easily come to you.
Half Health State
- On the physical level you may experience dizziness, dry eyes, headaches, fatigue, low energy, weak limbs, cramping, pain, stiff neck, shortness of breath, pressure on the chest, thirst, continual yawning, abnormal sweat, etc.
- On mental level you may experience poor concentration, insomnia, inability to think straight, an aversion to thinking or thinking too much, a desire to be alone, an aversion to talking, irritation, always wanting to sleep, poor memory both short and long term, lack of enthusiasm, worrying too much, etc.
- On the emotional level you may easily get angry, frustrated, sad, and fearful, you may over think things, you may feel like you are stuck or lost, etc.
- On the nerve sensation level you may experience lack co ordinations of body movements, shaking of four limbs or body, insensitive to taste or smell, eye twitching or other nerve related twitching, tinnitus, enable to calm down, etc.
If our health is in a "Half Health State", disease can easily come to visit us. However, the seriousness of the disease that manifests depends on how long you have been in this half health state and how healthy your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states are. In Chinese Medicine, we focus on treating this half health state, which is a preventative healing, to make sure serious diseases don’t attack.
Why Deep Massage?
Often when massage is discussed the first thought is of spas and relaxation. However, the deep massage treatment provides relaxation as well as a wide variety of therapeutic benefits. Deep massage beside the spine and around the whole body are the most effective ways to relax the muscles and spine. This way, there are no wrong pulling and pressure on muscles and internal organ, also our spine cane relax and return to its normal position.
