Tips to achieve balance in the home

Tips to achieve balance in the home

Here at Luciferous Traditional Chinese Medicine, we believe that your treatment shouldn’t stop when you leave the clinic. For many of our patients, their overall goal is to achieve balance in their life, and given that our homes are the place where we spend most of our spare time, it’s important that our residences reflect these intentions.

To help you create a space that will support your journey towards a more balanced lifestyle, we’ve put together a list of simple Traditional Chinese Medicine tips to help you achieve balance in your home.

Remove unnecessary clutter

The first step is to do a total sweep of your home and remove all unnecessary clutter from your living spaces to create a calm and peaceful environment. Too much clutter can cloud your mental state, and some people even report that it can make it difficult to focus on certain tasks.

Embrace fresh air

Next, open your windows wide and embrace the fresh air. The air we breathe can have a notable effect on our overall health and wellbeing, so it’s important to ensure that your air is clean and has as few pollutants as possible. If the air from outside is not ideal, you may want to consider investing in an air purifying device, or even purchasing some house plants known for their air purifying properties.

Use natural light

Finally, try to utilise as much natural light as possible. Make sure your curtains or blinds allow plenty of natural light, and minimise your use of artificial lighting. Not only will it lower your electricity bill, but it will also ensure your circadian rhythm remains stable and significantly improve your overall wellbeing.

Have you implemented any of these strategies into your home? We’d love to hear from you, let us know in the comments what has worked for you! For further advice, visit the online booking portal to schedule an appointment at Luciferous Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Why acupuncture can benefit people of all ages

Why acupuncture can benefit people of all ages

Each year, acupuncture attracts thousands of new patients seeking treatment for a diverse range of injuries and ailments. From young children through to elderly adults, acupuncture is popular with patients of all ages, and the benefits of this ancient Chinese treatment method are highly regarded by health professionals all over the world.

Here are some of the reasons why acupuncture can benefit people of all ages and why it remains a preferred treatment option after more than 2000 years.

Provides effective relief from pain

One of the most common reasons why people turn to acupuncture is to seek relief from acute or chronic pain. For many people, acupuncture provides far more effective relief from pain, and in some patients even report that it is the only treatment that allows them to live comfortably.

Treats a wide range of symptoms

As well as pain relief, acupuncture can also be highly effective in treating an extensive list of physical, emotional and mental conditions that can affect adults and children. Respectively, these conditions can allergies, infertility, arthritis, migraines, insomnia, stress, anxiety and many more.

No harmful side effects

In most instances, patients turn to acupuncture over western medicine treatments in favour of a more natural approach. One of the most highly praised traits of acupuncture is the fact that treatment causes no harmful side effects and in many cases can limit the need for further medication.
