Acupuncture

Acupuncture is arguably the best known branch of traditional Chinese medicine, as a treatment, it can be traced back 5,000 years. As a form of stimulus therapy, acupuncture is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine to restore health by way of correcting imbalances in the body. Acupuncture aims to regulate the meridians or channels of the body to re-open the Qi or energy of the body that may be blocked.

Meridians (or channels) are a complex system of lines running over the body linking various points on the body’s surface. The Meridian system distributes Qi, Blood and Fluids around the body. Each Meridian has the same therapeutic and diagnostic associations as a particular organ of the body. There are two types of Channels: the regular Channels (called the Jing Mai) and the smaller offshoots of the main Channels called the collaterals (or Luo Mai). There are 14 main Meridians, one for each of the Organs, plus the governing and reception vessels (Du Mai and Ren Mai respectively). These help to regulate the flow of Qi and Blood.

Tiny needles are inserted into the body at specific points. The sensations associated with acupuncture cannot be likened to pain, depending on the acupoint, sensations can vary between a pinch and an expanding feeling of the relevant area. At Health and Harmony, we only use one-use sterile acupuncture needles.

We have found acupuncture to be the most popular form of TCM treatment when it comes to musculoskeletal pain but it should not be underestimated in treatments for infertility, respiratory conditions and digestive well-being.

 
Fertility Acupuncture

Fertility


Undoubtedly, the area of fertility is Health and Harmonys Number One specialism. We understand how trying and frustrating infertility issues can be for any couple. Our chief practitioner, Dr Jane Li has had over 25 years of experience in reproductive health and is a TCM expert in the field ranging from conception, each trimester of pregnancy to post-natal care as well as male infertility issues.


Fertility issues can be caused by underlying health conditions such as uterine fibroids, blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis or polycystic ovaries. Infuriatingly, they can also be unexplained. At Health and Harmony, our treatments aim to complement whichever path you have decided to follow to conception. You can opt for TCM alone or TCM can assist in raising the chances of success with in-vitro fertilization.

Traditional Chinese Medicine sees fertility as the balance of Qi, Yin, Yang and Blood and problems can be treated on the basis of a careful differential diagnosis to resolve underlying patterns of disharmony. There may be either a "deficient" condition that leads to poor nourishment of the body and organs or an "excess" condition that obstructs the organs and energy channels. Often, the stress of attempting to conceive can be counter-productive.

The statistics published by the Fertility and Sterility medical journal has estimated that 26% of women undergoing IVF became pregnant following the procedure compared to 43% who received acupuncture before and after IVF. This equates to a nearly 50% increase in effectiveness of IVF combined with acupuncture.

Treatment with TCM is highly individualised and comprise of a mixture of both herbal medicine and acupuncture. We prefer to treat both the male and female partner, in our experience, even without issues of sperm count and motility, the additional boost can speed up the process significantly.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

 
Traditional Chinese Medicine Consultation

Both modern medicine and TCM has the same aim of treating illnesses but their philosophical focus is inherently different. Chinese medicine is described as “holistic” because it envisages the body as a set of complete and sophisticated interconnected systems, and that those systems usually work in balance to maintain the healthy function of the human body. Western medicine’s focus on health is allopathic or symptomatic. It treats patients as a series of parts that are all isolated, TCM takes the opposite approach. TCM sees good health as much more than the absence of disease, so in a way it doesn’t treat illness, it prevents illness. Much of the time, the symptomatic approach removes discomfort but the cause of the illness is still there. The age old saying goes “prevention is better than a cure.” In an ideal world, we would have both at our disposal but this isn’t a flight of fancy. In China, most ailments are treated by an integrated approach, combining the benefits of both sides.

Chinese medicine was developed thousands of years ago, during a time when people lived much closer to nature and the shifting seasons. Concepts of Chinese medicine are philosophical and derived from natural laws and the elements. TCM views each human as a microcosm of nature overall. It questions causes of disharmony, whether the need for vitality (Qi) stems from a blockage of an important bodily pathway (Meridian) or a weakness in one or more of the 12 Organs (Zangfu) or a lack of vital substances (Blood or Fluids) or a disharmony of the 5 elements and Yin and Yang.

Yin and yang are the two opposites. Yin represents femininity, coolness and darkness while yang represents masculinity, warmth and light. The opposite elements are co-dependent. Whereas yin nourishes and circulates the bodys substance, e.g., Blood and Fluids, yang generates warmth and vitality. Disease is considered the result of imbalanced of yin and yang. Yin and yang may be difficult to conceptualise. In ou
