Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist in Manila, Philippines
Massage is generally considered part of complementary and integrative medicine. It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. It is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.
Acupuncture creates space away from daily stresses for your body’s natural healing response. The needles are small and not particularly painful. Some people feel tingling, traveling sensations, or dull aches. These are signs that the needles are affecting the Qi of the body and having a therapeutic effect. People typically find acupuncture very relaxing.
These treatments depend on a good diagnosis in Chinese medical terms. In order to determine the direction of treatment, I may ask questions, feel your pulse, look at your tongue, and feel different points on your body. I may also recommend lifestyle changes or seeking care from other kinds of providers when appropriate.
