Traditional Chinese Medicine

China’s traditional science of healing combines a number of modalities, including acupuncture, herbs, moxibustion, exercises and diet

Ancient Wisdom, Modern Approach

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest healing systems known to man. The roots of this holistic science go back thousands of years and it has been shown to promote heal disease, regain balance and promote vitality for patients.

TCM is a natural system of medicine that includes several modalities, including acupuncture, herbal remedies moxibustion (the burning of herbal leaves on or near the body), cupping (using warmed glass jars to create suction at strategic points on the body), massage and physical movement and concentration.

Foundational to TCM is the concept of Qi (pronounced ‘Chee’), which is the vital life force that pervades and moves through the body. Any imbalance in Qi can lead to disease and illness. The TCM doctors at Numinus help their patients restore this balance through a treatment program specific to the individual’s needs.

TCM is a powerful modality that can help you overcome chronic or acute pain, insomnia, depression or anxiety, fatigue, indigestion, high blood pressure, infertility, hormonal imbalances. And it is also a great tool in preventive medicine, it helps to strengthen the immune systems and keep wellness.

A Natural and Holistic Approach

  • Qi

    Imbalance in the body’s vital energy Qi can lead to disease and illness. This imbalance is thought to be caused by an alteration in the opposite, but complementary, forces that govern Qi – yin and yang.

  • Establishing Balance

    TCM aligns closely with the care philosophy at Numinus. By looking at the patient holistically – addressing external factors, helping them deal with emotions in a healthy way and improving lifestyle – TCM aims to re-establish balance in the body.

  • Herbal Medicine

    To support your healing journey in between the sessions, Numinus has a wide range of high quality, third-party tested, non-adulterated and non-toxic Chinese Herbs, in a custom formulation to suit your needs. Chinese herbs are very powerful and best used in combination with Acupuncture. Our initial consultation is 30 mins and follow-ups are 20 mins.

  • Pediatric Tuina

    Pediatric Tuina, also known as Chinese Pediatric Massage, is a special massage for young children branched out from Traditional Chinese Medicine to stimulate specific acupuncture points or areas for treating and preventing diseases in children. It works by influencing a child’s energetic flow in the same way as acupuncture, but uses gentle massage to activate the various points instead of needles. Massage, acupressure and other forms of body manipulation boost the function of the internal organs by balancing their energies, strengthening the immune system, and promoting brain development.

“Your body is an integrated whole. Each structure in your body is an integral and necessary part of that whole. You are completely connected to nature, changes in nature are always reflected your body. You were born with a natural self-healing ability. Prevention is the best cure, and your body is continually revealing signs about the state of your health and TCM teaches you how to interpret what your body is telling you.”
