Welcome to Lai Acupuncture

Herb Paste for Allergies and Asthma

        One of the characteristics of Chinese Medicine theory is “Co-responding of Human Body to the Environment”. We apply the Chinese Medicine Herbs paste to specific Acupuncture points in hottest 3 days in summer (三伏贴) or the coldest 3 day in winter (三九贴) for reinforcing our body Yang Qi performance. These are the best days of the year for an effective long lasting treatment for allergy and asthma. Herbal paste treatment could support and strengthen the immune system to protect and defend the body against foreign invaders such as dust, mold, pollen, animal dander, bacteria, and viruses. In most cases you only need 3 to 6 sessions a year at 2 to 5 years for significant results.

    (Herbal paste may cause temporary skin rash or blisters).

    It is Safe for Children too!

甚麼是天灸治療?

​         天灸治療是中醫在每年夏及冬季特定日子裏,在人體特定穴位上敷貼中藥藥膏,使藥性通過穴位經絡而到達臟腑,達致調和陰陽,防冶疾病的作用。其中以治療慢性疾病,尤其鼻敏感,手腳怕冷,痛經等身體陽虛的疾病為隹。

          中醫根據"冬病夏治"和"夏病冬治"原則,使用天灸處方細辛、延胡索、白芥子等藥物作敷貼。在夏季及冬季特定日子(三伏天及三九天)及特定穴位上敷貼中藥膏貼,藥物藉此滲入皮膚,產生刺激作用,使皮膚出現溫熱反應,從而達到輔助/扶助陽氣,減輕寒性體質的症狀。天灸是符合中醫"天人合一"的外治法,所謂"冬至一陽",冬季三九天天灸扶助陽氣生發;夏季則陽氣"生長",於"三伏天"天灸助長陽氣,以達至冬病夏治的目的

        適合天灸的情況:

- 天灸尤其適合虛寒性體質人士,其發病尤其在冬天陰寒日子,或每進食生冷食物,或進出冷氣開放場地而症狀加重;

- 哮喘,鼻敏感, 慢性支氣管病;

- 素體陽虛易患感冒 ;

- 風濕痛症;

- 膝關節退化性關節炎;

- 慢性泄瀉;

- 陽虛體質(表現手腳冰冷,怕冷,小便清長)

- 原發性痛經

        不適合天灸的人士:

- 天灸治療的特點簡單方便,副作用少。但並非所有過敏體質人士都適合,例如濕熱體質,或以下情況人士,都未必合適天灸:

- 正值患上感冒、發燒人士;

- 孕婦;

- 兩歲以下的嬰孩;

- 皮膚有嚴重過敏、破損患處。

天灸注意事項

- "三伏天"或"三九天"一般"天灸療程"為三年;

- 成年人一般每次敷貼三小時,十六歲以下兒童兩小時,但實際時間長短須視乎體質而定;

- 敷貼期間戒飲食生冷,不貪涼,忌冷氣、冷風直吹肩頸胸背;

- 天灸治療期間,應飲食清淡並戒口,忌食生冷食物,或其他容易引致過敏的食材,如牛肉、花生、蝦蟹、鵝、蛋黃、辛辣煎炸食物等。

- 若皮膚出現局部發紅,可不需處理。假如皮膚出現局部痕痒,甚至水泡,則應將天灸膏藥移去,塗上京萬紅或芦荟膏,並致電診所報告有關情況。
