HOLISTIC PRACTICE

PHILOSOPHY

Traditional Korean medicine (TKM) is thousands of years old and has changed little over the centuries. Its basic concept is that a vital force of life, called Qi, surges through the body.  Any imbalance to Qi can cause disease and illness. This imbalance is most commonly thought to be caused by an alteration in the opposite and complementary forces that make up the Qi. These are called yin and yang.

Ancient Korean believed that humans are microcosms of the larger surrounding universe, and are interconnected with nature and subject to its forces. Balance between health and disease is a key concept. TKM treatment seeks to restore this balance through treatment specific to the individual. 

It is believed that to regain balance, you must achieve the balance between the internal body organs and the external elements of earth, fire, water, wood, and metal.

ACUPUNCTURE
ACU-FACIAL

The theories behind acupuncture have not been scientifically proven, but there are various hypotheses, such as the meridian theory (circulatory system adjacent to the nervous system), neurology theory, endocrinology theory, etc.

Practitioners believe that all these hypotheses are valid in deducing the efficacy of acupuncture. According to acupuncture principles, needles are inserted into acupuncture points known as meridians, which are believed to reflect abnormalities in internal organs or functional systems on the body surface.

Acupuncture is thought to promote smooth circulation and enhance metabolism by facilitating communication when there is an obstruction in the flow of vital energy (qi) caused by various factors. If we consider the flow of vital energy as an analogy to an electrical transmission line from the power station to the household, meridians can be regarded as substations or transformers.

In this analogy, acupuncture is like placing needles to clear blockages in the transmission line when there is an increase in demand, similar to fixing a transformer that cannot supply power when the demand is high.

Additionally, acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, to counteract pain. The stimulation of tissues around the acupuncture points also triggers histamine secretion in mast cells, activating the body's defense system.

As a result, blood vessels dilate, promoting the movement of glucose, amino acids, and minerals from the bloodstream to the surrounding tissues, while waste products produced by tissues move into the bloodstream. This process enhances metabolic activity (catabolic action) and facilitates rapid recovery of damaged tissues (anabolic action).

These processes consume a significant amount of energy during the course of acupuncture treatment.

When it comes to needles puncturing the face, fillers and Botox may now form our main association. However, acupuncture has been used in a cosmetic context for thousands of years in Traditional Korean Medicine (TKM).

While facial acupuncture can refer to the treatment of acupuncture points on the face for varying health and wellness concerns, cosmetic acupuncture specifically relates to acupuncture for aesthetic purposes.

ACUPRESSURE
KOREAN HERBAL MEDICINE

Acupressure is an ancient healing art that's based on the traditional Korean medicine practice of acupuncture. With acupressure, you put pressure on specific places on your body. These places are called acupoints. Pressing these points can help release muscle tension and promote blood circulation

There is a tradition of herbology that goes back thousands of years in Ancient Korea. A Traditional Korean Medicine clinician can prescribe single herb uses or many herbs together, in what is known as a formula, to help restore the balance of qi, blood and fluids within a person's body.

MOXA
CUPPING

Moxibustion can be used to prevent diseases and maintain health as part of tonification treatments to help strengthen the organs and immune system. It warms the meridians and expels cold. It can be used to promote circulation over areas of chronic pain or muscle tension. It is especially used for pain that is worse with exposure to cold or damp weather, as with some types of arthritis pain. When applied to acupuncture points that strengthen and lift the qi, moxibustion can boost the immune system and help with fatigue, digestive issues, and much more

Wet cupping therapy can be considered one of the three major treatments in traditional Korean medicine. Among them, wet cupping involves creating negative pressure on the skin using a cup to induce therapeutic effects. Many patients find it less painful than acupuncture, and in some cases, they perceive it as refreshing. There is also a common form known as "bloodletting" which induces the effects of both bloodletting and wet cupping simultaneously, making it a more powerful treatment.

Wet cupping has analgesic effects, relieving muscle pain by rapidly breaking down fatigue substances such as lactic acid and uric acid in localized areas. It is used not only for muscle pain after exercise but also for various pains caused by conditions such as stiff neck and shoulders, lower back pain, muscle tension after traffic accidents, disc diseases, joint disorders, fibromyalgia, and more.

The therapy increases local blood circulation, stimulates neural metabolism, and enhances immune function by increasing the collateral circulation in the treated area. Applying wet cupping before or after acupuncture is done to enhance the overall therapeutic effect, aiming to boost metabolic activity. In diet therapy, wet cupping is sometimes applied to specific acupoints or along the spine to promote weight loss.

Furthermore, applying wet cupping along special meridians and acupuncture points may produce effects similar to acupuncture. It has been reported to have psychological benefits similar to massage, promoting emotional stability.

INFRARED THERAPY
EMS THERAPY

Infrared therapy is a safe and effective way to reduce pain and treat a wide array of conditions. It seems to be a safe, effective, and drug-free way for long-lasting pain relief. It also helps to heal injured body parts.

With the treatment of injuries come multiple benefits such as pain relief, reduction of inflammation, and the restoration of the function of the affected body part. Other conditions that can be treated by infrared therapy include joint pain, joint inflammation, muscle pain, spine injuries, nerve pain, and sports injuries.

Electrical muscle stimulation is used to treat a variety of painful issues, much like therapeutic massage, from muscle strain and injury to fibromyalgia symptoms. This commonly sought after treatment uses an electrotherapy device that delivers a small, pulsating current to the muscles and nerve endings. This current encourages blood circulation, muscle stimulation and healing.

One of the greater benefits of EMS is that it can be used to treat weak or atrophied muscles resulting from an injury or from long periods of immobility. This works by stimulating muscles, which causes them to contract and relax, much like normal physical activity.
