Benefits of Medicinal Plants and Herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Benefits of Medicinal Plants and Herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine

The ABCs of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese medicine is one of the oldest continuous systems of medicine in history, with recorded instances dating as far back as two thousand years before the birth of Christ.

Chinese medicine is quite complex and can be difficult for some people to comprehend. This is because TCM is based, at least in part, on the Daoist belief that we live in a universe in which everything is interconnected. What happens to one part of the body affects every other part of the body. The mind and body are not viewed separately, but as part of an energetic system.


Science Affirms Benefits of Chinese Herbs — But Not in the Way You’d Think

In TCM, medicinal plants and herbs are harvested, dried, and prepared according to traditional Chinese pharmacopeia methods, and either taken in small doses over time as preventive measures or consumed daily in the case of chronic illnesses. Many plants and herbs such as Ganoderma Lucidum, or lingzhi mushroom, are also incorporated into everyday cooking.


What Are The Benefits of Herbal Medicine?

Herbal medicine can be very useful for treating many different illnesses from minor scrapes and burns to serious diseases. Herbal medicines are mostly used for persistent illnesses such as migraines, arthritis, depression and PMS.


10 Benefits Of Traditional Chinese Medicine

The top benefit that comes from traditional Chinese medicine is that the medicine is all natural. Although the herbs that are used in the medicine may have some side effects, it is nothing compared to the side effects from modern medicine.

You can find many different types of Chinese remedies in this store. Various remedies are important ingredients for foods that improve your health. For example, this is swallow’s nest, which purifies and strengthens the body’s systems, and provide resistance to disease and premature aging.

The Best Vitamins and Supplements For Muscle Tension and Faster Muscle Recovery

The Best Vitamins and Supplements For Muscle Tension and Faster Muscle Recovery

Are There Supplements to Relax Tight Muscles?

There are many vitamins and supplements that may be helpful for relaxing tight muscles in your body. However, before taking supplements, ask your doctor to discuss possible side effects and proper dosage.

Arnica may be an effective dietary supplement to help decrease your tight, aching muscles.

Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps your heart rhythm regular, supports your immune system and keeps your bones strong.

Kava kava may be a beneficial dietary supplement for relaxing tight muscles.



Other natural solutions for muscle tension include:

Ginger root
Omega-3 fatty acids
Bromelain and other natural sources of enzymes
Modified Citrus Pectin

Massage, particularly craniosacral and trigger point manual therapy, can also relieve tension. Trigger point and craniosacral techniques target specific points in the musculoskeletal system that hold tension, gently manipulating and realigning ligaments, tendons and muscles.




Protein is arguably the most important nutrient to take immediately after your workout, alongside carbohydrates. Your muscles have been broken down and therefore need repairing and rebuilding.

Branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) have become a staple supplement for athletes due to their role in muscle and energy production during exercise and therefore are commonly used immediately around or during one’s workout.

Fish oil is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids which offer numerous health benefits including keeping your heart, brain and eyes in good working order.

Not only will magnesium allow you to sleep like a baby through its ability to relax muscles, but it is another critical supplement to help speed up recovery.

10 Reasons to Try Acupuncture

10 Reasons to Try Acupuncture

Did you know that more than three million adults visit an acupuncturist annually, according to the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine? Acupuncture was first introduced to Western Medicine in the 1600s and today, more than 3,000 U.S. physicians integrate the therapy into their clinical practices.

Aside from being recognized by the World Health Organization as a practice that has the ability to treat over 40 different common issues including gastrointestinal disorders, joint and nervous systems, chronic pain, circulatory disorders, anxiety, depression and more, here are the top ten reasons to try Acupuncture today!

1) Acupuncturists view each person holistically and individually.

No two people are alike. Every cell in that person’s body is interconnected to others and is functioning as part of an integrated whole. In other words, acupuncture treats the whole person, not just parts and pieces. The root causes of a symptom that two people are experiencing may be completely different. During the initial exam, a full health history is taken. Questions are asked regarding overall health and symptoms, lifestyle choices, exercise, nutrition, career paths, and other life factors. All aspects of the patient are considered when putting together an effective treatment plan.

2) Acupuncture helps to re-awaken and energize the self-healing capacity of the body.

An acupuncturist treats more than symptoms and signs. Acupuncture activates the body’s natural healing potential by treating the root causes that have led to the problem or disease. Research shows that acupuncture triggers the body’s own mechanisms for manufacturing and releasing its own pain relieving chemicals. These chemicals are endorphins and dopamines, opioid-like compounds that produce the feeling of well-being and reduce pain. The body knows the exact dose that is needed at the right time. It is like a perfect pharmacy that can produce any “medication” needed for healing without any unwanted side effects!

3) Acupuncture is an effective preventative medicine with no negative side-effects, only positive ones.

Acupuncture is a completely natural therapy and works directly with the body’s natural processes, not against them. No drugs are ever used. Invasive procedures and drug therapies used in Western treatment may produce undesirable side effects and accumulated toxicity in the body. Acupuncture does not have these side effects. In fact, feeling great is the most commonly reported result.

4) Acupuncture helps to support and strengthen the immune system.

The immune system works throughout our body to prevent and fight illnesses. Our digestive tract, skin, and lymphatic system are three important parts of the immune system. The immune system can be weakened at times by disease and/or certain treatments and medications. Lifestyle contributors such as poor diet, stress, and poor self care can also negatively impact the immune system. The goal of acupuncture is to find and treat the underlying imbalances that are affecting the flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”), our vital energy or power, and the immune system by addressing the root causes. Acupuncture can help you regain balance and improve your overall health.

5) Acupuncture effectively assists with recovery from drug, alcohol and smoking addictions.

With the help of acupuncture, recovery from drug, alcohol and smoking addictions can be made easier. Stress, anxiety and depression are some of the largest stumbling blocks in quitting addictive habits and behaviors. Acupuncture is successful at calming and relaxing the mind, reducing anxiety and alleviating depressive feelings.

6) Acupuncture is recognized by well-known and leading national and international health organizations*.

The National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization are among those organizations who recognize that acupuncture is effective in the treatment of over 50 western medical diseases, disorders and symptoms including pain, infertility, allergies, depression/anxiety, migraines, digestive issues, arthritis, fibromyalgia and more.

7) Acupuncture is safe and painless.

When practiced by a qualified practitioner, acupuncture is safe. In 1996, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classified acupuncture needles as medical instruments, assuring their safety and effectiveness. The needles are one-time use only and are sterile and do not carry any risk of infection. Acupuncture needles are about ten times smaller in size than an average hypodermic needle, approximately the size of a cat’s whisker, and they are very flexible. They don’t hurt in the way that hypodermic needles do, however a slight sensation may be experienced as the acupuncture needle is inserted.

8) Acupuncture treatment is an excellent stress-relief therapy.

Along with treating physical and emotional symptoms and signs associated with stress, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) addresses the root cause(s) of the problem. Qi is the vital energy or power that animates and supports the functions of the body. It flows through specific pathways, called meridians, and provides nourishment for the entire body. When Qi becomes “blocked” or the supply is inadequate, the body and organ systems become “stressed out” and our health is then compromised. With acupuncture and TCM, the practitioner’s job is to support and restore the integrity of the various organs affected and depleted by the stress response, along with evaluating the quality and quantity of Qi.

9) Acupuncture is an affordable alternative.

Compared to some expensive Western medical therapies, treatments and medications, acupuncture is affordable and effective and it may help you avoid further medical expenses and complications down the road when it is used as a primary treatment plan or an adjunct therapy. Acupuncture can also help you make lifestyle changes and prevent future illness.

10) Acupuncture works!

Acupuncture has been used to successfully treat millions of people over the past 3,000 years. It is an effective form of medical treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this noninvasive treatment to help many become well and stay well. As the old adage goes, “there is nothing to fear, but fear itself”! Acupuncture works and this safe, natural, drug-free way of whole body healing is worth a try!

Would You Like A Swedish Massage?

Would You Like A Swedish Massage?

What is a Swedish Massage?

A Swedish massage is relaxing massage. When deciding on a Swedish massage, you should ask yourself, “Am I looking for stress relief and relaxation or do I have a specific pain problem that I want worked on?” In that case you probably want to get a medical massage.

Per Henrik Ling, a Swede who immigrated to France, is credited with the development of Swedish massage; this is why the names for the strokes are in the French language instead of Swedish. For example effleurage (sliding or gliding) and petrissage (kneading).

Swedish Massage Therapy Techniques For Back Pain and Relaxation

The specific techniques used in Swedish massage involve the application of long gliding strokes, friction, and kneading and tapping movements on the soft tissues of the body.

Swedish Massage Benefits

There are many benefits to a Swedish massage, which is why is it really popular. Swedish massage comes with benefits for both your physical body and for your emotional well-being.

Swedish massage is very helpful in managing stress, initiating the autonomic nervous system relaxation response and improving circulation.

Some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:

  • Anxiety
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia related to stress
  • Joint pain
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Soft tissue strains
  • Sports injuries

What Is a Neuromuscular Massage?

When a muscle is strained from injury or overuse, toxins are released into soft tissue causing swelling, soreness, and decreased circulation.

This may cause compression of the nerve endings resulting in painful spasms. Over time, scar tissue develops increasing pain and decreasing muscle strength and flexibility.

Our therapists at the Center for Neuromuscular Massage Therapy are trained to identify trigger points that may be the actual area of injury and a source or your pain.

Using the hands, our therapists apply techniques that release the spasm and balance muscle tone in the injured area.

Scar tissue is gently loosened and the soft tissue released to prevent further injury. Circulation is restored, increasing the flow of healing nutrients to the injured tissue.

You experience increased strength, flexibility, and heightened body awareness. As your body becomes more responsive, your confidence soars and you feel a sense of well-being and renewed vitality.

How Nutrition Affects the Mind and Body

How Nutrition Affects the Mind and Body

How Does Nutrition Affect Your Physical, Mental and Social Health?

Our diets have changed dramatically over the last century, and the impact of industrialization on our food supply has had devastating consequences for our health. The detrimental effects of highly processed foods on physical health are well recognized, but far less attention has been paid to their consequences for mental health and well-being.

The Body: Eating a healthy diet enables easy body movements. A poor diet with unhealthy food choices can make each movement a major effort filled with stress, strain and pain.

The Mind: Food supplies the source of power for your brain as well as your body, and has a direct relationship to mental and emotional health and stability.

Learning and memory, illnesses such as depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease benefit from a healthy, reduced-calorie diet that includes a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables and fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon.

Eating and Relationships: Eating a healthy, balanced diet prevents weight gain, lowers your risk for diet-related illnesses, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and depression, and gives you the energy to have a full and rewarding social life.



How Does Your Diet Affect Depression?

One of the best natural remedies for depression is good nutrition. Surprised? Learn how a healthy diet can improve your state of mind!


A Healthy Gut Leads to a Healthy Mind

Overall, be sure you avoid nutritional deficiencies and mental or physical fatigue so you can keep the body balanced and ultimately, feeling your best.

In Ayurveda, many types of foods and herbs are used to bring this crucial balance back, depending on how your body needs it the most. Though each of our bodies are different, there are some foods that work well for us all.



A Healthy Balance – The Mind/Body Nutrition

DId you know our thoughts and feelings about food are just as important as what we put in our mouths?

If you have a healthy relationship with your food, it will have a healthy relationship with you.

Eating while we’re mentally stressed or emotionally wound up usually leads us to eat more. It may cause us to choose poorer-quality foods, and leave us with symptoms of digestive distress. Marc David, of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating in Boulder, Colorad, emphasizes that no food or diet is healthy if we’re stressed when we eat.



Center for Massage Therapy Philosophy

Our distinguished team of massage therapists listens with sensitivity to the needs of our clients and provides caring and comprehensive clinical massage therapy for injury, stress management, nutrition, relaxation, and sports.

I strive to integrate a holistic approach with a very specific treatment, and to expand client’s awareness of their own body, mind, and lifestyle, so they can improve the quality of their lives in the long run. – Elena Paskova

Benefits of Pre-Natal Massage During Pregnancy

Benefits of Pre-Natal Massage During Pregnancy

Pre-Natal Massage

Research is proving that prenatal massage therapy can also be very beneficial in women’s prenatal care. Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health.



The Benefits of Womb and Breast Massage

Historically women have understood the benefits of massaging the areas over the womb and the breasts… they knew this type of touch had the ability to help them heal and reconnect with their core and divine feminine energy…



Benefits of Pre-Natal Massage

A common symptom during pregnancy is edema (swelling) of the joints. Edema during pregnancy is often caused by reduced circulation and increased pressure on the major blood vessels by the heavy uterus. Massage therapy can help stimulate soft tissues to reduce collection of fluids in swollen joints, which also improves the removal of tissue waste, carried by the body’s lymph system.

Another common complaint is sciatic nerve pain. Sciatica is experienced by many women in late pregnancy as the uterus rests on muscles of the pelvic floor and lower back. The pressure of the uterus spreads tension to the muscles of the upper and lower leg, causing them to swell and put pressure on nearby nerves.

Massage therapy addresses the inflamed nerves by helping to release the tension on nearby muscles. Many women have experienced significant reduction in sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy through regular massage.

What Is The Difference Between A Medical Massage And A Spa Massage?


Swedish Massage

Massage therapy addresses different needs through varying techniques, one of which is called Swedish massage, which aims to relieve tense muscles and improve lymphatic and blood circulation. Swedish massage is recommended because, through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body, it addresses many common discomforts associated with the skeletal and circulatory changes brought on by hormone shifts during pregnancy.


Pre-Natal Massage Therapist

A trained prenatal massage therapist knows where a pregnant woman’s sore spots are likely to be and may be able to provide some relief. (She’ll also know which areas and techniques to avoid.)



Elena Paskova is a massage specialist in Pre/Post Natal Massage at the Center for Massage Therapy.

Acupuncture Styles

There are many different styles of Acupuncture that are practiced today. While Acupuncture originated in China approximately 3,000 years ago, the practice spread over the Asian continent and developed its own regional adaptations. Each of these Acupuncture styles differs in their theory and practice.

Master Tung became famous due to his ability to achieve rapid results with few needles. While many of the points used by Master Tung were on acupuncture meridians, they were not the standard points used by most acupuncturists.



Master Tung Style Acupuncture

Master Tung’s Acupuncture was originally a closely guarded oral tradition that was exclusively passed down within the Tung family. Master Tung Ching-Chang broke this tradition and accepted his first disciple outside the family in 1962 in Taipei, Taiwan, over 48 years ago.

Since then, Master Tung’s system has gained a tremendous amount of momentum and popularity. It is currently one of the most sought after and highly esteemed schools of acupuncture, characterized by its simplicity, ease of use, and great clinical efficacy.



Master Tung’s Magic Points with Susan Johnson L.Ac.

Susan Johnson has been studying Chinese Medicine since 1982. She is a well known teacher of Master Tung’s Magic Points, a potent system of acupuncture handed down as a treasured family secret for generations and made public by Master Tung Ching Chang.
