The Chinese medical model is based on an energetic system (referred to as Qi, pronounced “chee.”) Together with blood, qi flows in a circuit around the body along channels, or meridians- which have been mapped out by hundreds of practitioners over thousands of years. At Claudia’s Chinese Holistic Therapy Clinic, we offer three types of Chinese Tradition Therapy, for Body, Mind, Skin and Home. Together with the acupuncture, Claudia provides Chinese Herbal consultations.

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing technique that treats a wide range of conditions. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) believes many illnesses are a result of imbalances in the human body. By inserting hair-thin needles in specific points along the body, the acupuncturist is able to manipulate the flow of energy and regulate balance in the body. As a result, it can alleviate pain, reduce anxiety and stress levels and restore health to the mind and body.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a gentle comprehensive treatment that improves the health and the appearance of the skin from the inside out. It allows you to regain the skin’s elasticity and restore its fresh glow from within.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the face is a canvas of what is happening inside the body. For example, dark circles under the eyes can hint at a fluid metabolism weakness. Forehead lines can tell us about over thinking and worry. A furrowed brow impression can indicate stress, an acne breakout can illustrate heat toxicity in a merdian. Even the color of one’s complexion can tell us about mood or body problems before they flare up. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, when the internal spirit is nourished, the skin flourishes.
In short, the benefits of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture are numerous. It is the perfect treatment for skin suffering from scars, uneven skin tone and fatigue-looking. It reduces or eliminates the appearance of fine lines, it diminishes the appearance of larger wrinkles, it blurs spots, under eye bags are reduced, it lifts drooping eyelids, tightens pores, improves facial colour, boosts blood circulation and increases collagen and elastin production. The skin will appear smoother, healthier and younger-looking. Results are achieved after a series of ten treatments, during which patients will be taught exercises to practice at home. They will then need to come back to Claudia’s Clinic once a month for the maintenance of the results.
Feng shui is an ancient art and science that was formalized over 3,000 years ago in China. In literal translation feng means "wind" and shui means "water." In Chinese culture, wind and water are associated with good health, and in turn, good fortune.
Basing itself on elements of physics, philosophy, astronomy, and astrology as well as the concept of yin and yang and the theory of five elements, Feng shui is sometimes thought to be the art of placement—understanding how the placement of yourself and objects within a space affects your life in various areas of experience. Feng shui can be practiced at home, in the office, or in areas outside. Its aim is to assure good fortune for the people inhabiting a space and by enhancing the flow of energy in one’s life. It improves mental and physical health while achieving peace of mind through the stimulation of environmental balance and order.
