Given today’s lifestyle and work pressures, many people are caught in a state of sub-optimal health. Hence, the pursuit of wellness is increasingly important in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
At Kin Teck Tong, we take a holistic approach in wellness through a combination of TCM diagnosis, medications and treatment modalities. The treatment strategy seeks to bring balance and harmony to the body, thereby achieving a better quality of life. The Wellness Tuina Massage, Ovary Care and Kidney Care are wellness treatments which are proven to be effective for the maintenance of good health.
Wellness Tuina Massage
Tuina (“push and grasp”) massage is a modality of traditional Chinese medicine used to addresses specific patterns of disharmony in the body. The treatment applies pressure to acupoints, meridians and muscle groups to remove obstructions in energy pathways and promote an increase in the body’s vital energy.
Many health problems are caused by blockages which leads to pain, swelling and building up of toxins in the body. By focusing on specific acupressure points, energy trigger points, muscles and joints, the wellness tuina massage is effective in clearing the blockages, improve blood circulation and thereby achieving better balance and health.
At Kin Teck Tong, wellness tuina massage is used to treat specific areas (Localized Tuina – 30 minutes) or improve the overall energy flow throughout the body (Full Body Tuina – 60 to 90 minutes).
Regular sessions of wellness tuina massage work well in addressing physical ailments such as tension, stiffness, soreness and decreased range of motion. The treatment also aids in decreasing stress and enhancing relaxation of the body and mind.
The ovary is an important female sexual organ primarily responsible for the release of ovum (egg cells) periodically to aid in reproduction. In today’s hectic and stressful lifestyle, ovary care is critical for women to prevent common ovarian diseases such ovarian cancer, ovarian cyst and PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome), as well as maintaining their overall well being.
Ovary care is a multi-faceted treatment that uses tuina massage therapy, acupuncture, herbal medication and even moxibustion. The treatment is very benefical to women who are preparing for pregnancy or in postnatal state, entering menopause, suffering from menstrual issues or constant feeling of cold in the limbs.
Ovary care will improve blood circulation, boost ovum health by increasing oxygenated blood flow to the ovaries, maintain hormonal balances, reduce menstrual cycle ailments such as pain and cramp, ease menopause, improve skin conditions and fights pigmentation. It is also helpful with the prevention of gynaecological diseases.
Kidneys are considered to be one of the most important organs in your body. They are the organ system of growth, maturation, sexuality, fertility, and aging. Therefore, healthy kidneys are critical in maintaining good health and vitality for both men and women.
From the TCM perspective, our kidneys are most damaged by stress and poor lifestyle. Kidney care treatment seeks to nourish the kidney and keep them in good balance through the use of herbal medication, and combining with treatment methods such as acupuncture, tuina massage therapy and moxibustion.
Signs and symptoms of poor kidney health include a sore or weak lower back (knees or ankles too), bone or tooth problems, dark circles under the eyes, hearing problems and premature graying or thinning of hair. Constant feeling of fatigue, cold or having lots of hot flashes, getting up several times each night to urinate also indicates that the kidneys are out of balance.
Regular kidney care will address the above issues and improve one’s core health. Fertility, libido, or the menstrual cycle will also be improved with the treatment.
