NO-PAIN Acupuncture™ is one of Sin Kang TCM’s specialty. Our highly-skilled and experienced physicians use ultra-thin TCM acupuncture needles with guide tubes that allow them to swiftly and accurately insert the needles into the skin, making the process clean and painless. As the needles are manipulated along the local and distant acupressure points, there may be sensations of achiness, heaviness or tingling, which are normal.
TCM Acupuncture accurately pinpoints the problem areas to bring about long-lasting pain relief. Through the manipulation of needles along the meridian points, acupuncture
- allows Qi and blood to flow freely throughout the body
- eliminates wind and dispels the cold
- brings balance to the yin and yang
- and clears any meridian blockages
All these result in warming the meridians and relieving pain. It is also believed that TCM acupuncture works by releasing chemical compounds in the body that relieve pain, or by overriding pain signals in the nerves.
Apart from pain, TCM acupuncture can also be used for any Qi-related symptoms and illnesses. These include poor immune system, digestive issues (e.g. bloating, diarrhoea, constipation), women’s health (e.g. menopausal discomfort, menstrual pain, irregularity and flow), skin conditions (e.g. acne, excessive sweating, hair loss, ageing skin), sleep quality (e.g. insomnia, snoring, fatigue), etc.
Recently facial acupuncture and acupuncture slimming has become beauty trend in Singapore. Most of the consumer know what is this without knowing how it works. Below we introduce some theory and mechanism you might wish to know.
Facial acupuncture is based on the theory that the human body is centered on the five internal organs, connecting six hollow organs, five sense organs and nine orifices of traditional Chinese medicine as an organic whole through the meridian system.
The pathological changes of Qi and blood of visceral and meridian must be reflected externally and affect the body, skin and hair of the human body. On the contrary, many kinds of facial diseases have the dysfunction of Qi and blood of visceral and meridian as the internal basis of facial diseases.
Through the clinical analysis of the lesion, we can know what it belongs to which viscera, hollow organs and meridian, then according to the diagnostic method of “look outside to know what is inside”, to decide the progress of the disease, the excess or deficiency of the viscera and the harmony of Qi and blood. The facial pathological conditions will be transmitted and reflected on it through the meridians, cause abnormalities on the colour, texture, and smoothness of the skin, hyperpigmentation, acne and other facial diseases, if the viscera and meridian are dysfunctional
The functions of the internal organs are coordinated, Qi and blood fluid are sufficient for nourishing the face through meridian, then the complexion will be ruddy, skin will be delicate and smooth. In addition, the “Ying Qi” and “Wei Qi” which circulating in the meridian can also prevent the invasion of external pathogenic factors, protect and firm the skin.
Therefore,the rise and fall of the function of Qi and blood of the viscera and meridians are directly related to the condition of the face. Therefore, facial acupuncture focuses on adjusting the function of Qi and blood of the viscera and meridians.
Acupuncture slimming also works through regulating the function of Qi and blood of the viscera and meridian.
