Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and dates back thousands of years. It involves inserting fine needles into specific points on the skin or applying various other techniques to the acupuncture points to bring about healing.
Facial Paralysis is a disorder also known as "Ball's Palsy", in which the facial muscles of one side become (usually suddenly) weak or paralyzed. The paralysis causes distortion of the face and interferes with normal functions, such as closing the eye and eating. It is thought to be caused by inflammation of the facial nerve.
In TCM therapy especially acupuncture treatment has shown some effectiveness in treating this condition. According to TCM, Facial Paralysis is due to an obstruction disrupting the flow of circulation caused by pathogens invading the channels traversing the face. These obstructions prevent the vessels and muscles from receiving the necessary nourishment. The acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture thus helps to correct imbalances in the facial energy and circulation.
In summary, Chinese medicine and acupuncture on a regular basis can significantly improve results and help to resolve this condition.
A significant number of patients remain severely disabled after stroke despite rehabilitation with standard treatment modalities. Integrating TCM as part of patient care reduces the side effects of western medications and in many cases resolves symptoms.
Acupuncture is usually used as an alternative form of rehabilitation for stroke victims. Acupuncture therapy for stroke-caused conditions such as paralysis, speech and swallowing problems, and depression is commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It can be beneficial, especially when utilized in the early stages of post-stroke. Benefits of Acupuncture and TCM in stroke complications treatment may include:
Greater use of hands and legs
Reduction in pain
Help with difficulty speaking
Does acupuncture really work to help stroke victims improve? Many studies involving thousands of patients have been published in China and Japan demonstrated significant help. These studies indicate that patients get well faster, perform better in self-care, require less nursing and rehabilitation therapy, and use less healthcare dollars.
Treatments are given several times per week initially and gradually reduced in frequency. The number of treatments will vary depending on the individual, the severity of the stroke and the length of time from the initial stroke until treatment is begun.

If this stroke is a concern of yours, TCM and acupuncture treatment at Asia TCM Singapore TCM clinic may benefit you.

Origin-Point Therapy (Simplified Chinese: 原始点疗法) was invented by a Traditional Chinese Medical practitioner from Taiwan, Dr Chang Chao Han.
Origin-Point Therapy is consisted of a set of principles and a set of techniques to treat diseases. The principles are radical, even from the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective. For example, it states that the cause of illnesses is due to injury to the jin (Simplified Chinese: 筋). Therefore, when the damage to the jin is repaired, the illness is cured. Virus, bacteria, and other microbes are not in the equation of treatments of diseases, and so there is no antibiotic medication in Origin-Point Therapy. Typically, Origin-Point Therapy treatment involves nothing more than massages of the origin-points along the spine or limbs and application of warm pad on certain points of the body. The technique is simple, and yet the result is immediate and typically, amazing too.

TCM Paediatric Massage Therapy (小儿推拿), also known as infantile or child therapeutic massage, is one of the oldest specialties within Chinese medicine and dates from the early first millennium. Since that time, there has been continuous development in the diagnosis and treatment of children's diseases. It influences a child’s energy flow by using gentle massage to activate the various points instead of needles.
According to TCM, children are not just considered miniature adults but they are also believed to be immature both physically and functionally. Most common pediatric complaints are due to this immaturity. Chinese medicine states that because children's bodies are immature and therefore inherently weak, they are susceptible to diseases that affect the lungs such as colds, coughs, allergies and asthma and the spleen (or digestive complaints) such as colic, vomiting, diarrhea, indigestion, and stomach aches.
Although there are some similarities, points system of children is different from that of adults in large. By applying Massage Strokes on the different acupoints on children, it promotes general health, strengthen their immune system and aid in his development. It has proven to be a viable option for treating a wide variety of common childhood conditions like cough, constipation, digestive difficulties, fever, chronic abdominal pain, dermatitis and asthma and general health care.
Besides treating illnesses, the therapy has good effect of promoting the vitality of the body's immunity system, improving the functions of the body organs, increasing disease-resistance ability, all of which acts synergistically to effectively prevent and treat ailments. It provides good health care for children when they are well, and when they fall ill, the therapy helps to alleviate or cure the illness. The massage is known to enhance a child's brain development and encourage greater memory capacity and creativity.
The therapy is safe, gentle and is suitable for children from birth to approximately twelve years of age. However, the younger the child is, the more effective pediatric massage can be, because this is the time when the body is still developing. Since some paediatric massage techniques are simple, parents are encouraged to learn and use at home.
