-- Traditional Chinese Medicine --
With over 25 years of experience in Flavio offers a variety of therapeutic treatments including:
Physiotherapy: Flavio offers rehab body treatments to cure sports injuries, sprains, tendinitis, dislocations, tendon ruptures, grips, muscle tear and much more.
Acupunture : an ancient therapeutic technique that comes from traditional Chinese medicine. It is mainly used to reduce and relieve pain, and, in many cases, it can cure various types of diseases such as allergies, addictions, and respiratory disorders. This procedure involves inserting tiny needles into acupuncture points on the skin.
Acupressure : an alternative medicine technique derived from acupuncture. Instead of needles, fingers are used to provide pressure and micro-massage. The benefits are also different: acupressure is helpful in treating headaches, tennis elbow, allergies and insomnia and other problems.
Moxabustion : the art of healing with heat. This treatment uses the same points as acupuncture, but herbal compounds called moxa are burned and this results in the generation of body heat. Moxabustion is used to relieve the pain of joint disorders and arthritis, to regulate the digestive system, and to improve blood and lymphatic circulation.
Cupping Therapy : using glass or bamboo to exert suction on certain points of the body. This aids in removing both blood and energy blockages. Suction cups are usually applied in the treatment of rheumatism, sprains, abdominal pain, stomach pain, colds, coughs, asthma, and numbness.
Reflexology : a therapeutic method used to prevent, alleviate, calm and, in many cases, cure certain types of diseases. The soles of the feet have points that correspond to each part of the body, such as the lungs, kidneys, stomach, heart, liver, etc. Stimulating these reflexology points can result in improved welfare, relief and, in some cases, the prevention of disease.
Geotherapy : a technique in which healing clay serves to improve health in numerous pathologies. The clay has various properties that provide several benefits including healing, refreshing the skin, and acting as an anti-inflammatory.
This is definitely the place to go for everyone who is looking for traditional chinese medicine treatments.
Flavio collects medicinal herbs at different altitudes of the central mountains in the Jarabacoa Province of the Dominican Republic. In the lush vegetation, Flavio finds a variety of medicinal plants. The process of preparing these medicinal herbs takes about four days, and the compounds that are produced from the 66 plants are used to detoxify the body.
