Oriental way to better health
Do you ever have a health problem that comes and goes with certain regularity? You may manage to remove pain or discomfort only to have it return once again as you settle into normal life. Most medical treatments offer relief in the short term.
The traditional oriental medicine adopts a completely different approach to your health and offers a comprehensive treatment menu, which not only relieves short-term, pain, but also helps your body find a permanent relief of distressing symptoms.
According to traditional oriental medicine the body’s subtle energy, called ki, flows continuously along pathways called meridians that can be assessed by taking the pulse (pulse diagnosis). The blockages of one or more of 12 meridians results in specific pain, discomfort or disease.
When the ki energy is flowing freely there is no pain or discomfort.
Abundant and strong lung ki result in beautiful supple skin.
Balanced stomach and spleen ki maintain weight naturally.
Healthy heart and liver ki relaxes the mind, resulting in sound sleep, relieving depression and anxiety.
Strong kidney ki gives you sexual potency, maintains fertility, increases memory and relieves lower back pain.
Japanese style acupuncture Toyohari is a hands-on pulse diagnosis, healing method, a very gentle and effective therapy, involving pain-free use of acupuncture points and a variety of non inserting needle techniques that aims to balance the patient’s pulse. This is a wonderful way to regain your health and vitality and is suitable for everyone.
