Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.
The earliest document about acupuncture dates back to around 5,000 years ago. “Emperor Nei-Jing” is the bible of Chinese medicine and acupuncture and was completed approximately 2,000 years ago.
In 1979 the World Health Organization favored acupuncture as the medicine of choice for the developing countries. Presently more than 1.5 billion people throughout Asian, Europe and the US use acupuncture and herbal formula to achieve good health.
A 1998 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed that medical doctors refer their patients to acupuncturists more than any other “alternative” care provider; the same study also revealed that 51% of medical doctors believe acupuncture to be efficacious and of value.
It records the twelve regular meridians that we use in Chinese Medicine today and is still the most influential book in today’s Chinese Medicine Society.

Tui Na is the form of Asian bodywork that uses touch to balance the body’s energy. Date back to 1700 BC, Tui Na was used as a therapeutic method to treat infants and adult digestive conditions, and it was carry out in order to prevent the disease from gaining a start.
To experience both acupressure and Shiatsu, a Tui Na session may seem like a cross between the two. Like Shiatsu, Tui Na uses rhythmic compression along energy channels of the body, manipulate and lubricate the joints. Like acupressure, Tui Na directly affects the flow of energy by holding and pressing the body at acupressure points.
Tui Na has migrated to the West and become popular, it offers all the benefits of traditional western massage, works with the energy of the body at a deeper level, and plus it has the ability to address and mitigate specific health concerns.
A typical Tui Na session uses various strokes along energy channels, as well as gentle shaking, stretching, and joint movements. This stimulates and releases the flow of energy, which helps balance your physical and emotional systems.
Balancing your energy is the essence of the Balance Flow approach to bodywork. a Tui Na session can actually leave you feeing both relaxed and invigorated-all at the same time.
