TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the name commonly given to a range of traditional medical practices developed in China as its culture evolved over millennia.

The main fundamental medical theories of TCM are based on this long experience, reflected in the “yin-yang” and other theories, such as the “five elements” theory. Treatments are performed with reference to this philosophical framework.

Prevention is the main objective of Chinese medicine. When it is necessary to cure, it is done with natural methods aimed at strengthening the patient’s self-healing capacity.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is especially recommended to treat the following conditions:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Arthrosis
  • Epicondylitis
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sprains
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Vertigo
  • Dizziness
  • Tinnitus

  • Facial paralysis
  • Allergies

  • Flu
  • Bronchitis

EYRA offers the following Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments at its Marbella clinic:

ACUPUNCTURE

The best known Chinese therapeutic technique, it is carried out through the painless placement of fine needles at specific points (xue) on numerous meridians (energy channels), which run over the surface of the body and form an infinite network linking all of the parts and depths of the organism.

Punctures cause stimuli aimed at having a positive influence on energy flows and contributing to restoring the body’s functional balance and energy harmony, which are synonymous with health.

We have 361 points on the 14 meridians, known as Jing Xue; there are also points outside the meridians, or curious points, called Qi Xue; and finally, the painful points or Ashi Xue.

The needles are made from stainless steel and are fine, flexible and single use. They are inserted at different speeds, either perpendicularly or inclined; the depth varies according to the zone to be treated and the patient’s condition.

ELECTROACUPUNCTURE

In this type of treatment, therapeutic reactions are produced by needles connected to a device that supplies electrical energy.

The aim is to stimulate certain points with direct, alternating and direct current, with pulses or mixtures of complex waveforms. The advantage of the treatment is that it replaces manual manipulation of the needle (which can take a long time) and facilitates proper control over the amount of stimulation.

MOXIBUSTION

This treatment consists of burning mugwort (moxa) Doctors used to pick the plant, dry it and prepare it themselves, but now it can be found ready-prepared in specialist shops.

Moxa is particularly effective when the patient is cold or damp, because the nature of mugwort is believed to be pure yang, making it ideal for warming. One of the ways to apply it is to light a moxa stick and move it close to the skin, either along a meridian or over acupuncture points so that the heat penetrates the body through them.

Another way to apply it is to light small moxa cones, placed on the handle of the inserted needle, allowing the heat and healing effect of the burning mugwort to penetrate the body through the needle.

AURICULOTHERAPY

This is a Chinese technique used to prevent or treat illnesses by manipulating points or areas of the ear that represent different parts of the body.

Manipulation is done using small, fine needles or seeds.

HOT SUCTION CUPS

This consists of heating the inside of a glass or bamboo cup with fire and sticking it to the patient’s body in specific areas for a short period of time.

The suction cups stick firmly to the body because heat produces a vacuum, making the body release cold and moisture. The Qi warms up and swelling decreases.

STIPERPUNCTURE

Stiper-puncture is a therapeutic method based on the properties of acupuncture that uses crystallized silicon (QUARTZ) dressings for permanent stimulation without side effects.

It can be thought of as acupuncture without the needles.

CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE

Chinese herbal medicine is one of the types of treatment adopted by Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Although the Chinese term is generally understood as phytotherapy or herbal medicine, this type of treatment also uses animal and mineral ingredients to create its formulae.

The various ingredients that make up each recipe prescribed by a Traditional Chinese Medicine therapist using this method are combined in proportions that maximize their effects and prevent possible side effects. The knowledge of these combinations and proportions is the result of thousands of years of experimentation and research.

Remedies that combine the ingredients of each formula can today be found in Traditional Chinese Medicine pharmacies, and medication is produced in China that combines recipes for the most common problems and offers them in tablet form.
