A treatment with Traditional Chinese Medicine is always an individual therapy. It is based on an intensive interview (anamnesis), pulse and tounge diagnose. A normal session takes between 45 and 60 minutes. When you come the first time I normally do a more intensive first visit anamnesis which lasts between 75 and 90 minutes including treatment.
A treatment includes the following techniques: Acupuncture, Massage, Moxa and other convenient techniques like sound therapy.
- Chronic and acute pains: e.g. headaches, migraine, back pain, knee pain, etc.
- Women: discomforts around menstruation/menopause, acupuncture during pregnancy
- Treatment of children (also without needles, using special tuning forks)
- Accompanying medical treatments: e.g. high blood pressure, cancer
- Problems with digestion and weight
- Neurological problems: working with scars, numbness
- Support and strengthening after operations
- Acute Tinnitus
- Sound Therapy
- Yoga/Qi Gong
1. Body massage in combination with SOUND
Working with sound in a massage is a really special experience. I like to mix a corporal massage of the back and then using various sound tools that produce especially natural sounds like our voice which is the most incredible sound instrument of all. Our voice can produce so many sounds including overtones that have a deep healing effect especially on the hormonal glands. Other instruments are for example tibetan bowls, special tuning forks, ocean drum, monochord and other. Sound works different than a pure physical body massage. Our body consists of around 70% water and water is a really good medium to transport sound down to our smallest cells. Different sounds work different on our body. Sound relaxes the body and helps to establish inner balance. It can often bring you in a state of deep relaxation where our body is able to heal itself. Furthermore sound not only works on the physics but also connects us with our emotions and therefore releases tensions caused by emotions.
So a combined massage with sound relaxes our physical body and our mind.
And if you like, the massage can also be pure sound without bodywork at all.
2. Thai Yoga Massage
A Thai Yoga massage is a type of massage that is done on the floor for example on Yoga mats wearing really comfortable cloths that allow your body to be moved.
In this type of massage the practitioner on the one hand uses different pressing and touching techniques working especially with the thumbs and the palms on special lines and points of the body. On the other hand the body of the client is gently moved and slightly brought into different kinds of postures also known in Yoga.
This mixture of movement and pressure relaxes tensions in the muscles and stretches gently the whole body with a final feeling of relaxation and energy liberation.
The Thai Yoga massage has its origin in the Ayurvedic although many points and lines used in this massage can be recognized in the meridians used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
3. Ayurvedic Massage
The Ayurvedic massage is a full body massage with good quality oil. It’s a massage that does not derive from hard pressure on the muscles of the body but from a fluid movement that connects all parts of the body. This is really important as a tension and pain in one area of our body is connected to many other points in our body and may be caused by another region or it may effect other regions. Therefore massaging the whole body helps release tension in all parts and so relaxes the whole body.
Together with the oil, the massage in movement and the work on the whole body help us to relax and maybe even to disconnect from all the things that are constantly in our mind and just be in the present moment.
4. Foot Reflexology
In foot reflexology we “only” work on the feet. With a little bit of oil both feet are massaged.
The feet (like the hands and ears) represent a reflection of our whole body – from the head to the toes, the extremities, the organs, the glands… This means that working with the feet we can relieve pain and imbalances in the whole body and so this kind of massage helps us to relax and turn off the sympathetic nerve for a moment in favor of the parasympathetic nerve.
And we only have to take off our socks and then we can start…
