fullsizeoutput_3dSelf massage tips for Sciatica

(click the link for a video demonstration)

If you have sciatic pain from lower back to hamstring

  1. Palm facing yourself, draw a line from wrist on thumb side all the way up to the elbow 
  2. Find the most tender spot, press and hold for 10-15 seconds
  3. Hold the point and move the lower back and leg gently at the same time 
  4. Move on to next tender spot and repeat. 

Do this a few times a day or whenever you start feeling the pain or tension coming!

Manage expectations…

A key factor in acupuncture treatment is the depth of the injury tissue. As you can image, the sciatic nerve is a very deep layer injury, even with needles, we have to insert deeper to find the trigger points for a greater result. The acupressure massage can only reach the upper layer of the issue, hence it can still give result but temporarily. If you want to heal the root, acupuncture is a better treatment. 

Let us know if any particular conditions you want to know!

Acupuncture- a new option to manage anxiety and depression (Show care to people around you)

robin williams

It’s sad to find the iconic and lovable Robin Williams dead today, who was struggling with drugs and depression. But what makes me think if we can identify depressed people around you and get the right treatments.

For people with depression, acupuncture could be the missing piece in a complete management plan.

In Traditional Chinese medicine system, mental disorders are caused by “Yin-Yang” imbalance resulting from a weak liver, spleen, heart or kidneys. It is classifies according to how much each Organ has been disturbed and how the Qi is affected. Acupuncture seeks to restore its natural balance by correcting energy blocks or imbalances between Yin and Yang.

Patients would experience a reduction in tension, restlessness, sadness, headache, cephalic paresthesia, and loss of appetite.

One new study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found the traditional Chinese practice to be as effective as antidepressants, and a different study found that acupuncture may help treat the medications’ side effects. Another study published in the journal PLOS Medicine, shows that adding acupuncture or counseling to usual care for depression could help to decrease symptoms of the condition in the short- to medium-term. Western research suggests the needles may activate natural painkillers in the brain; in traditional Chinese medicine, the process is believed to improve functioning.

Acupuncture would not be a replacement but clearly it is a new option.

But whatever treatment to use, it is important to take metal disorder patients to get right medical care, as most of the time, they dun aware and refuse any help. Do show care!!


Qi Beauty- chinese medicine anti aging program

Oh yeah! Nude face….this is Qi Beauty matrix newly introduced in our clinic. I dun really do treatments at beauty salons, but I have to try this before working on patients and it does a great job!! So dun be surprised if I look like 18 again 😛
This non-invasive technique is to reconnect your Qi, i.e. maximinising the regenerability of skin cells, by placing 1000 Qi micro-magnets on meridians. Acu-points on face are mostly related to digestion channels. In Chinese medicine, a good circulation of digestive system plays a key role of a beautiful skin.
Unlike acupuncture or electrical/abrasive techniques, instead of damaging or injecting sth into your skin, Qi beauty stimulates the circulation energy, you are re-training your cells to behave differently. Follow by home kit, a regular stimulation throughout one skin cycle (30-55 days) to fully activate and establish Qi. You will encourage volume to move upwards, throughout skin layers, dragging collagen and elastin to the upper layers of the skin.
Case Studies have shown that the Qi beauty facial will assist the ability of the skin to:
*Plump and tone dehydrated skin

*Lift and define facial features

*Decrease size of pores

*Reduce the appearance of pigmentation

*Reduce the depth of wrinkles

*Repair/reduce broken capillaries

*Provide a long term anti-ageing solution

Can Chinese Medicine help infertility patients?


With a new technology, couples with infertility problems may have chance to have their own babies. But there are always risks behind.
in the clinic i am working now, 80% are infertility patients. Most are them are seeking Chinese Medicine treatment along IFV, IUI etc, in order to increase the chance, which has been proven in some latest research.
We use acupuncture and herbs to regulate the cycle and treat the underlying problems for both men and women, using a personalised approach.
But more importantly, if you are trying to conceive, you should stable your emotion and regulate diet (i.e. no raw and cold food), as all this would slow down the Qi and blood circulation to the pelvic area.

Stiff neck after sleeping (Acute Torticollis) 落枕

Some people suddenly wake up one morning and find their neck twisted to one side with so much pain and stuck in that position. This is Acute Torticollis which is caused by injury to neck muscles.

Patients are often found the neck pain, cannot move after woke up, that affecting their work and daily life.

Acute Torticollis can occur after a long exposure to cold (and wind in Chinese Medicine theory), or after the neck has been in an improper position.
