Prevention of Covid-19

·The very best protection is to wash your hands frequently - after going to the toilet, before handling food, after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose. Soap and water is best but hand sanitiser is also ok.

·Avoid touching your face - the virus penetrates via the mucous membranes so keep your hands away from your lips, mouth, nose and eyes.

·Cough or sneeze into a tissue and immediately discard the tissue into a lined bin. If you don't have a tissue then cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow - not into your hands.

·Stay at home if you are not well - do not go to work or go out in public.

·Avoid crowded situations and maintain an extended social distance when you are out and about.

·Eat well and eat regular meals.

·Make sure you get plenty of sleep and don't push yourself to the limit.

·Maintain your regular routines and keep in touch with friends and family.

Be kind to others around you - if a family member, friend or neighbour has to self-isolate then stay in touch and offer to pick things up from the shops for them or cook them a meal. Things can be left on an outside table or at the door for them to collect once you have left. You can't catch Covid-19 through a closed door or window!

 Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) originated over 5,000 years ago and has spread throughout Asia from China to Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Taiwan, Tibet, Vietnam and many other places, while continuously advancing. Today, TCM is no longer only popular in Asia but has become a well-known alternative therapy in most Western countries, being used by all types of people for a variety of health conditions.

Preventive Treatment of Disease

"The sages of antiquity did not treat those who were already sick, but those who were not sick. When a disease has already broken out and is only then treated, would that not be just as late as to wait for thirst before digging a well, or to wait to go into battle before casting weapons?"

Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses more on keeping patients healthy instead of treating sicknesses once they develop. Modern research studies have substantiated acupuncture's role in disease prevention. Preventive TCM treatment plays such a tune-up role to tone internal organs or to prevent minor annoyances from becoming major problems. Acupuncture, herbs, and dietary therapies exist to help you make the transition from imbalance to well-being both possible and comfortable. Once we know the nature of your imbalance, we also suggest foods, habits, exercises, etc. that help to slow down or stop the disease process in its tracks.

Chinese medicine approach to health is encompassing. You are not just your body. You are spirit, emotions, energy, light, bones, muscles, etc. They are all part of you and all must be maintained so that you remain healthy. Every aspect matters. Any illness that manifests is seen as a symptom of a deeper problem, and that is what we are trying to solve.

At Nine Life Land Acupuncture, we evaluate your health history and focus on symptoms holistically. Our main goal is to provide you with the best treatment plan possible so that we can help you get your life back on track. We provide individually tailored treatment plans and strive to see the big picture of your current health situation. We use natural treatment modalities that include Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Remedies and Formulas, Moxibustion (also known as Moxa Therapy), Auricular Therapy (Ear Acupuncture), Cupping (Suction/Heat Therapy), Chinese Therapeutic Massage ( Acupressure) and fire therapy, etc.  We also try our best to give you a pleasant and relaxing experience at our clinic, because your comfort and wellness are very important to us.

Preparing for your acupuncture treatment

1. Acupuncture guides your own energy to regulate your internal organ systems and rebalance your energy channels. Please do not come to your treatment just after eating a heavy meal or on an empty stomach.  Be aware: no energy, no treatment outcomes.

2. Please don’t drink alcohol or coffee before or after acupuncture treatments as these may affect the flow of your energy.

What we need to know after having an acupuncture treatment?

1. Rest and relaxation are required after acupuncture treatment, as your energy is re-directed by acupuncture and it will remain healing-process in the next hour or longer. Proper rest would enhance the physical and emotional restoration process.

2. It is better not to take a shower until 2 to 3 hours after treatment. If we use plum blossom needling, please don't take a shower for 24 hours.
