A full spectrum of Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment

The Hong Tao Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine practice is pleased to offer a host of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) therapies as part of our commitment to complete patient healthcare. TCM does not just incorporate acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, but a variety of other therapies that work alongside TCM fundamental principles and work as an integrated healthcare system, where necessary. Not all patients will require all of these treatments, but, in addition to your acupuncture treatment, Sarah will provide these therapies as an adjunct if she feel that they are beneficial to your overall treatment, all as part of your session. Some of these therapies are as ancient as TCM itself, others encompass the essence of TCM and combine its philosophy with modern technology to provide a more effective benefit to treatment.


Moxibustion

moxa

Moxibustion or ‘Moxa’ is a heat-source treatment that utilises Chinese herbs packed into a small hand-held roll, to warm target areas and/or acupoints on the body having a benefit for pain, stagnated energy and cold-type syndromes. It is a completely safe treatment and very effective for a wide number of ailments from digestive problems to musculoskeletal conditions, to gently turning a breech baby. We only use smokeless moxa rolls in our clinic so there is no irritation.


Electroacupuncture

Electroacupuncture

 

For some particular syndromes and diseases, acupuncture treatment can be more effective if the needles are stimulated with light pulsing movement during the patients resting time. Occasionally, the practitioner may provide this stimulation manually, periodically during treatment. However, it can be more beneficial to use electroacupuncture where a device to which the needles are attached generates continuous electric pulses throughout the course of treatment. It is a completely pain-free and safe treatment that supplements the effectiveness of the standard acupuncture alone.


TDP Magnetic Heat Lamp Treatment

tdp-heat-lamp

 

The TDP Lamp is a type of electromagnetic mineral therapy utilising far-infrared heat emissions to promote the natural healing process of the body. Due to its heat-source element, it has a similar benefit to moxibustion: tonifying the Qi energy of the body, effective for reducing inflammation and calming pain (benefiting arthritis and musculoskeletal disorders), improving micro-circulation and balancing metabolism and promoting immune function. It is a remarkably safe treatment and very comforting.


Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture

ear-seeds

There are as many as 200 acupuncture points on the ear, that can be used as a sole therapy or as an adjunct to body acupuncture. It is especially effective as a continuation treatment after the patient has left the clinic; by sticking seeds to the acupoints on the ear with transparent surgical tape, the patient can stimulate the points themselves by periodically applying pressure to the points with their own fingertips thereby extending the effectiveness of the treatment. Ear acupuncture is especially beneficial for addiction (smoking, drug, alcohol), weight loss therapy and various pain disorders.


Cupping

cupping

Cupping involves placing glass cups with reduced air pressure (suction) on the skin. Similar to the benefit of acupressure and shiatsu type massage, the vaccum created within the cup dispels any dampness or stagnated Qi and/or Blood, improving Qi flow and thereby promoting healing. It is mainly used on the back, neck, shoulder and is especially beneficial for various musculoskeletal conditions but also benefits a variety of other disorders such as skin conditions including psoriasis.
