Dr Kirk Wilson - Acupuncture & TCM

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites known as acu-points. The human body has over 500 acu-points along the various meridians. Stimulation of these acu-points clears any blockage and encourages the normal flow of qi (energy) through the body.

Kirk Wilson - Acupuncture & TCM often implements moxibustion, cupping and massage techniques to compliment the acupuncture treatment. Moxibustion involves the burning of a Chinese herb to heat the acupuncture needle and/or the acu-point. Cupping is the application of glass suction cups to the skin in order or to bring blood to that area to aid the healing process.

HERBAL MEDICINE

Chinese herbal medicine involves the use of substances from nature to regulate and normalise bodily functions. Most Chinese herbs are of plant origin (leaves, seeds, twigs, stems, roots flowers and fruits) though some animal and mineral substances may be used.

Chinese herbs can be taken singly or in combination. Traditionally, the herbs are slowly simmered in a ceramic pot and the resulting liquid (decoction) taken as prescribed. At Meridian Healing Centre, we dispense our herbal formulas in powdered granule form. This means preparing your herbal medicine is as easy as making a cup of instant coffee.
