The needles we use for our treatments are specially made in order to cause less damage to the skin of the patient. A thinner needle also helps the acupuncturist to feel and direct the Chi in the patient’s body. The use of extra fine needles requires a more refined set of skills compared to those for general acupuncture. This makes Nano-Acupuncture more accurate and effective.

Bone Setting

Bone setting is one of the five branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is considered to be the basis for the development of modern chiropractic and osteopathic treatment. Traditional bone setting is a holistic process to address the balance of the skeleton, muscles and joints, in order to relieve pain. Before the advent of chiropractors, osteopaths, and physical therapists, bonesetters were the main providers of this type of treatment.

Bone setting refers to the manipulation or “setting” of fractured bones, ruptured sinews and muscles in order to alleviate an injury. A Chinese Medicine practitioner will treat bone fractures, concussions, sprains and joint dislocations through pulling, repositioning and aligning, avoiding any invasive procedures. The objective is to maintain the wholeness of the body.

Body pain can be caused by incorrectly stressed, overextended or blocked areas such as those of the spine or joints and related glands. For pains such as back-pain, sprains or concussions, Chinese Medicine considers bone setting to be more effective than light exercise or physiotherapy.

Cupping and Massage

Traditional Chinese medicinal practice and Tui Na therapy involves the healing art of touch with scientific manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body for the purpose of releasing the existing tension, returning them to natural alignment and contributing to a sense of general well-being. This is a form of therapy in which the practitioner applies manual techniques, and other therapies, with the intention of positively affecting the health and well-being of the client and consists of manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement of or to the body and/or applying pressure to the body.
