The celebration wouldn't be complete without a traditional red envelope gift to our guests. The red color of the envelope symbolizes good luck and is supposed to ward off evil spirits.
Ear or Auricular acupuncture is one of the more widely used microsystems within eastern medicine. Microsystems use one aspect of the body - for example, the ears, hands or feet - to treat conditions that are present anywhere in the body. Auricular acupuncture may be used as a primary mode of treatment or in conjunction with other treatments such as acupuncture, bodywork or herbal medicine.
Tongue and pulse diagnosis are two very important diagnostic tools used within Chinese medicine. They are both used together to derive a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) diagnosis for a patients condition and enables the practitioner to determine a treatment plan of action to restore harmony back to the patients body and eliminate disease.
