In Chinese medical theory, for balance and well-being, there should be a free flow of blood and qi (pronounced “chee” and implies breath, oxygen, energy levels, movement, vitality) throughout all parts of the body. Health is impaired when the flow develops blockages and weaknesses, causing pain, stress and illness. Acupuncture works by restoring this free flow, stimulating a strong response in the brain and nervous system, so the body can repair as it is designed to do. George applies his principle of Cleaning and Strengthening to regulate the flow of nutritious and well-oxygenated blood throughout the body.
With health and flexibility in body and mind, you can live life naturally and gracefully.
As well as acupuncture, dietary and lifestyle advice may be offered so that you can achieve lasting results. To support acupuncture, George also uses Tui Na medical massage, moxibustion (the burning of herbs to stimulate healing) and cupping therapy (to bring fresh blood into the muscles and release tension and toxicity).
George trained in both the classical Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture and symptom-oriented TCM Acupuncture styles but draws on several other styles depending on the issue at hand. George studied extensively with John Tindall, uses distal needling techniques for immediate pain relief – studying under Robert Doane, Balance Method of the late Dr Richard Tan and Master Tung’s family acupuncture system. These are some of the most effective styles worldwide.
George continually develops his interest and skill in medical acupuncture – the style that has recently developed in the West through the medical understanding of physiology we have here – relating to such ideas as the stimulation of nerves within muscles to relieve pain and inflammation.
