真空罐疗治疗失眠的原理及一些临床病例

睡眠是人类生命活动所必需的生理现象和心理过程。失眠症在临床上极为常见,中医称为不寝,是睡眠障碍中常见的一种,可以作为单独的疾病,也可以作为伴随状态出现于众多疾病中。大部分失眠并非由于人体脏腑有器质性病变,主要由各种病因导致脏腑功能失调所造成。中医认为失眠的主要病机为脏腑功能阴阳失调,气血失和,致心神不安或心神失养所造成。
从失眠的发病人群来说应该分两个年龄群体,青中年和老年群体。青中年龄段失眠的病因主要以精神因素及生活无规律因素所致。精神因素主要表现在平时思想负担过重,精神压力过大,耗损人体气血致肝气郁滞,心神失养而失眠。临床表现:性格急躁,心烦易怒,心情抑郁或焦虑。生活无规律表现:平时暴饮暴食,经常熬夜,过食高热,高脂肪,高蛋白食物,缺少必要的运动使肠胃负担过重,影响正常消化及传导而造成郁积,从而导致体内湿热过剩,伤气耗血,心神失去气血的滋养而失眠。临床表现为:口干口苦,便秘,便稀,尿黄,口臭,多梦,心烦头昏燥热等。
老年人失眠主要与脏腑功能衰退有关系。以血液循环减慢,气血不足,肝肾阴虚,大脑动脉硬化缺血而导致失眠。临床上多以气虚,血虚,血瘀为主要病理;表现为难入眠,睡眠浅,醒后难以再入眠,零星睡眠较多,同时伴有夜尿多,畏寒,心悸头昏,便秘纳差及血脂高,血压高,动脉硬化等。
王老师及其200多位中医界专业人士经过20多年的临床实践,研究编制了王氏真空罐疗法“二十一罐疗法”,该法能调和气血,平衡阴阳,养神养心,活血化淤,降脂降压,加强脑供血,增强免疫力,调整内分泌,有效地治疗了不同年龄段的失眠症。患者满意率在百分之九十七。
病例一:施女士,年龄75岁,头痛,头昏,手脚冰凉,夜尿6-7次,口臭,便秘,血脂高。半个疗程(5次)以上症状基本消失,夜尿还有一次。一个疗程后(一个月后验血)甘油三脂由2.80毫摩尔/升降到1.95毫摩尔/升。至今10个月一直保持治疗效果。
病例二:梅先生,43岁,头痛,头昏,便秘,小便黄,失眠,梦多,易醒,背重,终日疲劳,反映迟钝,注意力不集中,急躁。4次治疗后上述症状消失,一个疗程后一直稳定到现在一年多。
病例三:四十五岁的魏女士因心理负担过重,精神紧张,多年来患严重的失眠症。每天只能靠吃药保持5-6小时的睡眠。她慕名而来求诊。王老师在她的背部和胸前的相关经络和穴位拔罐,走罐和留罐,还有一些相关穴位强化治疗,吸出不少淤血和黄水。治疗后的第一天,魏女士虽感浑身轻松,但是仍然难以安睡。王老师告诉她,由于治疗已打通经络,但是心脑部分还没有供上充足的气血,将在12-24小时难以深睡,等到身心习惯这种变化和取得平衡,将有奇迹出现。次日,王老师又给魏女士做了相应的真空罐疗。当晚和次日魏女士分别连续睡了十几个钟头。此后便心清气爽,精神饱满。每天都可以正常睡足7-8小时。这无疑是失眠患者的福音。

真空罐疗巧治颈椎病

颈椎病又称颈椎综合征,其病因一是颈椎间盘退行性改变及骨质增生,压迫颈部脊髓或颈神经根所致,(多发生在颈椎5-6,其次为6-74-5之间的椎间盘);另一种是由于颈部及上肢长期处于一种特定的姿势下,缺乏全身性的活动,使得颈椎两侧的肌肉、韧带张力失去平衡。


颈椎病发病起病比较慢,主要临床表现为头、颈、肩、背以及上肢等部位的顽固性定位疼痛和麻木,当睡眠、抬头或低头过久或颈部转动度大时症状加重或反复出现萎缩。目前的颈椎病从发病人数到发病年龄上都较以前有了较大的变化,常与长期低头伏案及电脑工作有关,年轻人常表现为颈椎的生理弯曲变直和椎间隙狭窄,由此,常导致头晕、头痛、后背肌肉疼痛、肋间神经痛、上肢麻木、睡眠不好、面部青灰憔悴、视力减退、记忆力下降等。

中医认为本病多因肾气不足,使得卫阳不固,风寒湿邪乘机侵袭,以致气血运行不畅,经络阻滞,出现颈椎强直,引至痹痛。一般分为:太阳经脉不利症;风寒痹阻症;气滞血瘀症;痰瘀交阻症和肝肾不足症。

全天然的绿色疗法--真空罐疗作为中国传统医学的一朵奇葩,特别对颈型、神经根型、颈动脉型有非常好的疗效。真空罐疗治疗以上类型的疾病治愈率为99%。原理是真空拔罐时通过吸拔特定的颈椎穴位 (如大椎、肩井等),将充斥在颈椎病灶穴位内部的风寒湿邪和淤血等,经皮毛吸将出来,通过这种良性提高机体功能,平衡阴阳,扶正祛邪,疏通经络,活血化瘀,除湿逐寒,行气安神,协调脏腑。我们日常所见的电脑病就是一例。日前,IT从业者郭先生来求诊-由于长期在电脑前工作十几个钟头,深感颈椎和腰部疼痛,有时上肢麻木,睡眠也不好。经在郭先生的颈肩部走罐,留罐及强化治疗一个疗程后,他的颈腰部疼痛迅速消失,而且睡眠质量也提高了许多。


正是因为真空罐疗的整体效果,对治疗颈椎病,肩周炎,腰痛和膝关节疼痛,是最好的办法之一,它能迅速减缓疼痛,收到立竿见影的效果。

拔真空罐减肥须知

拔罐减肥可是中医减肥法中非常有效的一种,通过刺激腧穴、调整经络达到加强脾肾的功能,从而达到一定的减肥瘦身的目的。拔罐减肥还能改善全身血液循环,最大的优势的就是可局部减肥,“想减哪里就减哪里”的感觉棒棒哒!


拔真空罐减肥是什么

拔罐减肥是什么?拔罐减肥的原理对于很多朋友来说应该有些复杂,它是中医中常用的减肥方法。通过拔真空罐时强大的吸拔力使汗毛孔充分张开,汗腺和皮脂腺功能受到刺激而加强,皮肤表层衰老细胞脱落,从而使体内毒素、废物加速排出,从而达到减肥的效果。
拔罐是将罐内空气抽出,造成罐内负压,罐缘得以紧附皮肤表面,牵拉神经、肌肉、血管以及皮下腺体,可引起一系列神经和内分泌系统反应,调节血管舒缩功能和血管壁的通透性,从而改善全身血液循环。通过对局部部位的吸拔,能疏通经络,平衡气血,调整内分泌,加速血液循环及淋巴液循环,可促进肠胃蠕动,使机体新陈代谢加快,产热及脂肪消耗增加,既可减去体表脂肪又可减去体内深层多余脂肪。拔罐减肥是一种安全、保健、不伤害生理的快速减肥法。
中医认为,拔罐不仅能辩证施治、调节整体,疏通经络,促进人体新陈代谢,取得整体减肥的效果,还能够根据肥胖的位置选择穴位,局部取穴循经疏导,促进局部代谢,消除局部脂肪,达到局部减肥的目的。这也就是不少女性朋友梦想的“想瘦哪里瘦哪里”,通过拔罐就可以帮你实现。
在减肥的时候,也是需要选择适当的减肥方式,这样对减肥才会有很好的帮助。很多女性减肥的时候都是会选择节食减肥,这样的减肥方式是不健康的,拔罐减肥的方法是很好选择,对很多想要瘦身但是却屡试无果的减肥者来说最适合不过了。下面,我们一起来看看拔罐减肥的方法,拔罐减肥从哪些穴位下手更有效呢?
背部穴位:
【脾俞穴】功效:发散脾胃之热。
【三焦俞穴】功效:将全身水湿气通调至膀胱经,再排出体外。
腹部穴位:
【中脘穴】位于肚脐上方)功效:聚集及传导水液和脂肪。
【大横穴】(位于肚脐右侧)功效:通腹去脂,调理脾胃。
【关元穴】(肚脐下面)功效:募集小肠经气血、传导任脉水湿的效用。
下肢穴位:
【血海穴】功效:减肥,清血利湿。
【足三里穴】功效:通经活络、补中益气。

拔罐减肥的利弊

拔罐减肥虽然效果显著,但是需要专业的罐疗shi才能进行,拔罐减肥也并非有利无弊。建议想要瘦身的朋友先提前了解一下拔罐减肥的利弊再决定是否要选择这种方法。拔罐减肥的主要好处就在于安全、健康,而不利之处就是禁忌比较多,尤其是需要注意把握拔罐的时间间隔。
拔罐减肥的好处:
1、促进全身血液循环
通过排气造成罐内负压,罐缘得以紧紧附着于皮肤表面,牵拉了神经、肌肉、血管以及皮下的腺体,可引起一系列神经和内分泌系统反应,调节血管舒缩功能和血管壁的通透性,从而改善全身血液循环。
2、排除体内毒素
拔罐负压的强大吸拔力可使汗毛孔充分张开,汗腺和皮脂腺的功能受到刺激而加强,皮肤表层衰老细胞脱落,从而使体内毒素、废物得以加速排出。  
3、温热作用
中医认为拔罐可以疏通经络,调整气血、平衡阴阳。经络有行气血,营阴阳,儒筋骨,利关节的生理功能,如经络不通则经气不畅,经血滞行,可出现体弱多病、体形臃肿、脸上起斑、痘、皱、干燥等多种症状及皮肤问题。通过火罐对皮肤、毛孔、经络、穴位的吸拔作用,调整机体的阴阳平衡,使气血得以调整,从而达到健身美体、祛病疗疾的目的。
4、快速瘦身
拔罐内压对局部部位的吸拔,能调整内分泌,加速血液及淋巴液循环,促进胃肠蠕动,从而改善消化功能,使机体新陈代谢加快,产热及脂肪消耗增加,即可减去体表脂肪,又可减去体内深层脂肪,从而达到安全快速减肥的目的。
拔罐减肥的坏处:
1、拔罐的时间和间隔,一点要好好把握,一定要找专业的罐疗师治疗,有些朋友为了瘦身自己拔罐,结果引起感染,造成皮肤重度瘀青,效果就适得其反了。
2、对于本身有出血性疾病的患者来说,拔罐不但无助,甚至会造成更强的破坏性后果。心脏病患者、血友病、全身浮肿、具有皮肤病或伤口者、体质消瘦弱小、孕妇、六岁以下之儿童、七十岁以上之老人,或处于高热,抽搐,痉挛等这些情况下,更可能因拔罐而产生晕针般的不适感,更是要小心。

拔罐减肥会反弹吗

拔罐减肥不同于药物减肥等,药物作用通常有一定的期限,而拔罐减肥是通过调整患者内在功能而发挥内因作用,所以一般不会在拔罐减肥治疗停止后很快又发胖。也就是说,拔罐减肥一般是不会反弹的。拔罐减肥己倍受国内外学者所关注,是目前最有效的一种健康减肥方法之一。拔罐治疗由内分泌失调引起的肥胖、单纯性肥胖等,可迅速减去多余脂肪,收紧皮肤、不松弛、无皱纹,且不影响身体健康。
因此,拔罐减肥尤其适用于长期减肥无效、药物减肥失败者,具有肥胖患者无需节食、无需大运动量运动、无手术痛苦等优点。

拔罐减肥的适宜人群

拔火罐是一种传统的养生、调理方式,而现在中医拔火罐的减肥功效也被充分认识。中医拔火罐从调理人体的新陈代谢着手,达到减肥的目的,其安全、健康、不伤害生理的优点被人们所认可,因此很多朋友都选择这样的方式来减肥。但是,拔罐减肥也并非人人适宜尝试,哪些人更适宜拔罐减肥呢?
拔罐减肥适合于长期减肥无效,或者药物减肥体内产生抗药物性的肥胖患者。
1、减肥无效或反弹的朋友:尝试过各种减肥方法却无法完全解决问题,让肥胖者几乎绝望。
2、身材臃肿的朋友:身材并不肥胖,但腰部、臀部过度隆起,可以尝试拔罐减肥。
3、产后肥胖的朋友:原来身材苗条,但产后臃肿,也可以试试这种减肥方法。
4、想要重塑体型的朋友:本身身材匀称,但觉美中不足。
5、天生体型欠佳的朋友:大腿粗壮,胳膊浑圆,局部肥胖严重,拔罐减肥都能帮到你。

拔罐减肥的注意事项

减肥是不少女性朋友的终生事业,很多人为了减肥变得不理智,拔罐减肥这种减肥方法需要减肥者理智地选择,不然减肥不成还可能会伤身。拔罐瘦身可不像是运动或者其他减肥法,它具有一定的局限性。下面我们不妨一起来了解一下拔罐减肥的注意事项。
1、拔罐时间过长易导致皮肤感染
中医提醒其实拔罐根据罐大小、材质、负压的力度各有不同。但是一般以从滑完罐到起罐不超过十分钟为宜。因为拔罐的主要原理在于负压而不在于时间,如果说在负压很大的情况下拔罐时间过长直到拔出水疱,这样不但会伤害到皮肤,还可能会引起皮肤感染。
2、拔罐后不要立刻洗澡
可以洗完澡后拔罐,但是绝对不能在拔罐之后马上洗澡。拔罐后,皮肤还未完全复原,这个时候洗澡很容易导致皮肤破损、发炎。如果是洗冷水澡的话,由于皮肤处于一种毛孔张开的状态,很容易受凉。

Cupping Makes Weight Loss Easy

No Needles —No Pain —No Hunger —No Risks —No Exercises
LOSE FAT and WEIGHT!
Quick! Easy! Safe! Effective!


1. What is cupping therapy?
Cupping therapy is an ancient and effective modality widely used in traditional Chinese medicine over thousands of years in China. The Cup is usually made from bamboo, glass or plastic. Traditionally, by quickly heating the inside of the cup with fire, suction is created on the skin and the cup will adhere to the skin for 15-20 minutes. With the suction, the negative pressure in the cup stimulates the local acupuncture point; to increase qi and blood flow through the meridian, to loosen up local tight muscles, to relieve pain, to detoxify, and to re-balance the relative organ function.
2. How does it help weight control?
For weight control, we usually apply 20-30 different sized cups to the back and front of the body (including arms, body trunk, legs) to stimulate 14 meridians such as Ren, kidney, stomach, spleen, lung, heart, liver, gallbladder, Dai, large intestine, small intestine, Sanjiao, and pericardia. This helps re-balance those organs’ functions, remove water retention, control craving, relieve stress and anxiety, promote bowel movement, detoxify, and, finally, increase body metabolism rates, to decrease weight.
3. Are there any side effects from cupping therapy?
Generally there are no side effects. Most commonly, it may leave temporary cup marks on the skin, which usually happens in the first one or two treatment sessions. The marks will gradually subside and disappear within one to two weeks. Clients who are taking blood thinners or are prone to bleeding are not suitable candidates for cupping therapy. Occasionally the cupping therapy may cause a skin blister if the treatment time is longer than 30 minutes. If a blister occurs, the therapist will simply remove the liquid by sterilized needle and bandage. It may take one week to heal.
4. Does it work effectively and successfully?
Yes!  The average rate of weight loss is one pound per session, 10 to 30 pounds after 10 sessions. Some people may respond more quickly than others.
5. Do I need diet control during cupping weight control?
Yes. We provide a very simple diet guideline, with enough nutrients and energy to guide clients in eating a healthy and balanced diet, to help control weight and achieve their goals.
6. Do I need exercises to help weight control?
Not necessarily! But a proper exercise program will help to achieve goals and promote health. We don’t recommend clients make weight control dependant on an exercise program, because if the client stops exercising, they will gain the weight back quickly.
7. Do I gain weight back after cupping treatment?
No. As long as you follow the diet menu guidance, you will maintain a healthy weight.
8. How much weight could be lost by cupping therapy?
This depends on individual goal, Average  10 to 30 pounds after 10 sessions treatments. This may not seem like a lot compared to crash dieting, but it certainly is a more balanced and holistic health approach. It may take 1-2 years to lose all the weight you’d like, but the odds are that you will keep it off if you do it in a gradual and balanced way. This is not a diet; it is living and being healthy forever.
9. How many sessions do I need for the treatment? How long is each session?
10 sessions are required in the first 10 days, and then 2-3 sessions per week after that. For maintenance treatment, once a week or bi-weekly is acceptable. A session takes about 60 minutes.
One-hour single session: $75/hour   Ten sessions: $700

Is Acupuncture and Moxibustion an Effective Way to Treat Warts?

Oriental Acupuncture as a Treatment for Warts

Acupuncture or “zhen” in Chinese, has recently received accolades for its successful ability to treat a type of wart, called the “flat wart”, a recently published study in the International Journal of Dermatology has found.
Do not confuse flat warts with plantar warts, they are very different.  Flat warts are typically seen in teenagers and children rather than on adults.  Usually clustered together in dozens, sometimes even as many as 100 on one part of the body.  Often times the flat warts are defeated by the immune system with the young person “grows out” of the infection.

Oriental Acupuncture for the Treatment of Plantar Warts

The Acupuncture treatment for plantar warts destroys the infected skin cells.  This is done by having the acupuncture needles inserted intoacupuncture treatment with mugwort the skin surrounding the wart.  The needles are then used to lift the area around the wart at which point additional needles can be inserted beneath the infection.  Thereby allowing the Chi and the body’s natural defenses to attack and destroy the infection.
In conjunction with acupuncture, we have moxibustion or “jiu” in Chinese.  Often times seen together “zhen jiu” = acupuncture + moxibustion.  Moxibustion is the burning of mugwort to help with the healing process.  You may recall if you’ve never experienced acupuncture yourself, that in some movies when acupuncture is being performed the end of the needles have wisps of smoke rising from them.  The smoke is from the spongy mugwort herb being burned.
In treating plantar warts, often the direct moxibustion method is used in TCM.  The burning mugwort is placed directly on the infected area in a small cone-like shape.  The underlying wart and skin are burned by the moxibustion, which an herbal burn cream is subsequently applied to help with the healing process.

Is Using Acupuncture and Moxibustion an Effective Way to Treat Warts?

The answer is "Yes" , as our acupuncturist Jarry's 26 Clinical experience, he said usually most people will need 6 to 7 treatment sections (45 minutes per section) , and after the treatments, the wart will be gone and usually it won't come back again. That's the difference between the acupuncture/moxibustion treatment for wart removal and the other ways to remove the wart. Lots of other ways like laser wart removal, usually the wart will grow back. Yesterday a 25 year-old young girl walked into our clinic for wart removal treatment. she tried the laser wart removal, but it didn't work very well, it grew back, so she came for acupuncture/moxibustion treatment now. And we will post the treatment result in 3 weeks.

For wart removal or other skin problem like Shingles,Eczema or Psoriasis, acupuncture treatment is a great option to choose. Healing from the root beyond treating symptoms.
With our Therapist's 26 years Clinical Experience,you will feel the difference!

Chinese Herbal Medicine to Get Rid of Warts

The herb brucea javanicaYa Dan Zi in the TCM vernacular, comes from a shrub of about 1-3m high. Ya Dan Zi has amoebicidal, and antibacterial pharmacological activities as studies in animals and humans have shown. Grinding the herb into a paste it is applied directly to the surface of the wart.

Other uses of brucea javanica in traditional Chinese medicine are centipede bites, hemorrhoids, and corns.
It should be noted that using Ya Dan Zi is not an FDA approved medicine for the treatment of warts.

Can acupuncture boost my fertility?



Acupuncture is based on the theory that vital energy (or "qi," pronounced "chi") flows through the body along certain pathways. Acupuncturists try to balance this energy and restore health by stimulating specific points along the pathways with thin needles. Although it has been a staple of Chinese medicine for some 5,000 years, acupuncture has gained acceptance in the North American medical community only in the past few decades.

In 2002, a team of German researchers discovered that acupuncture significantly increased the odds of pregnancy among a group of 160 women who were undergoing IVF treatment. Forty-two percent of the women who received acupuncture got pregnant, compared to 26 percent of those who didn't receive the treatment. The researchers speculated that acupuncture helped increase blood flow to the uterus and relax the muscle tissue, giving the embryos a better chance of implanting.

                          
Other research does suggest that acupuncture is effective in reducing stress. Since stress has been shown to interfere with getting pregnant, it makes sense that reducing your stress through acupuncture could theoretically improve your odds of conceiving. Some women find acupuncture helpful to cope with the stress they feel about trying to conceive.

Acupuncture also help male infertility. 
For men, acupuncture can improve sperm motility(the strength with which the sperm swim), volume and concentration as well as increase libido.

A few studies have shown that regular treatments significantly improve sperm counts and motility . To be truly effective, though, acupuncture treatment would need to increase a man's sperm count over the threshold needed for conception — a minimum of 10 to 12 million moving sperm per ejaculate. And the men in these studies didn't get up to those levels.

However, new research shows that acupuncture can significantly improve the quality and health of sperm. In a study published in Fertility and Sterility in 2005, researchers analyzed sperm samples from men with infertility of unknown cause before and after acupuncture treatments. They found that acupuncture was associated with fewer structural defects in sperm and an increase in the number of normal sperm.

Acupuncture is a natural, safe and effective therapy for those who are facing fertility challenges and discomfort. 

If you wish to minimize medications, acupuncture is an effective alternative and a great place to begin. This holistic treatment is both gentle and powerful in achieving results. We are committed to providing natural fertility solutions, and if necessary, we will support you through IUI and IVF treatments.

What are the benefits of acupuncture for fertility?
  • Increases the blood flow to the uterus, thickening the lining and supporting implantation
  • Balances the endocrine system and reproductive hormones
  • Lowers stress levels
  • Regulates menstruation and ovulation
  • Benefits male factor infertility
Acupuncture may assist with treating some of the following fertility imbalances:

Stress!
Studies show that women with high stress levels are up to 93% less likely to conceive. Stress not only reduces blood flow to your reproductive organs, it can inhibit communication between your brain, pituitary and ovaries, creating a hormonal disconnect throughout your endocrine system. Acupuncture can help soothe your nervous system by releasing endorphins; thereby reversing the effects of stress and regulating hormones.
Hormonal Imbalances
Acupuncture helps to regulate hormonal imbalances by starting at the source; the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian-axis (HPOA), which is responsible for releasing the right hormones from your endocrine system in the appropriate amounts. Women faced with luteal phase defects, high FSH levels, low estrogen levels or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), especially benefit from this treatment.

Male-Factor Infertility
Men who are disadvantaged from reduced sperm count, or lack of sperm production can benefit from Traditional Chinese Medicine. Motility (how they swim), morphology (how they look) and amount (how many) can all gain from acupuncture, and in particular from herbal remedies and proper supplementation.
