The best time for exercise

TCM believes that our body’s function is closely related with the nature, especially relative movement of the sun, moon and earth. The revolution of the earth to the sun determines the one year period and four seasonal changes. In one year , the sunlight to the earth increases from spring to summer, hence the temperature is rising from spring to summer.

The rotation of the earth determines the one day period, there are four seasons of one day as well, morning (3am to 9am ) can be regarded as spring, lunch time ( 9am to 3pm ) can be regarded as summer, afternoon ( 3pm to 9pm ) can be regarded as autumn, evening and night ( 9pm to 3am ) can be regarded as winter. From morning to lunch time, the temperature is rising, after that, the temperature is dropping.

Our body’s Yang energy is the same as nature, its rising in spring, summer of one year, in morning and lunch time of one day. Since the movement can encourage the Yang of the body, the stillness can encourage the Yin of the body. So the best time to exercise is spring and summer of one year, in morning and lunch time of one day. On the other hand, the best time to rest and keep stillness is in afternoon till night of one day, in autumn and winter of one year. once our exercise is against this natural flow, our body functions would be disturbed and illness could happen without any doubt. Once we follow this natural flow, health will be guaranteed. To apply this principle in one year, we may reduce exercise in autumn and winter, but still can do proper exercise in morning and lunch time of autumn and winter, as to follow one day’s rhythm. Nowadays, so many people believe that exercises can benefit their health whenever they do it, a lots of people doing exercise after work, even at night time, unfortunately these are harmful to health.

Balance of exercise and rest

The balance of exercises and rest will promote the Middle Qi, which is the source of vital energy as I mentioned. The balance can be achieved during one year’ cycle, one day’s cycle, between exercises, and during exercises. For example, we can do more exercise in spring and summer, less in autumn and winter, we can have regular breaks during exercises, sleep hours match the amount of daily exercises, apply a little bit of controlling during exercise itself, those are all the methods of balance.

TCM lifestyle:eat warm and promote digest fire

Food that is warm and cooked decreases the work of the digestion system, which must warm up food and break it down. Precooked and warmed foods, such as soups, stews and curries, are more easily absorbed and create less work for the Spleen. Avoid raw, cold foods, which are more difficult to digest.

Having some raw ginger before or during meals or adding warming spices such as black pepper, ginger, cardamom and cinnamon to food helps increase the Spleen's ability to digest food properly. Eating pungent foods such as onions, leeks, fennel and garlic also help increase the body's digestive fire. (more…)

Less qi stored up, less weight loss.

TCM views health as a matter of building up and conserving energy, or “qi” (pronounced chee). When we have an abundant supply of qi flowing freely through the body, our internal organs and systems can function properly to keep us healthy.

Make sure your food is not stealing your qi: Raw, cold, sugary, and caffeine loaded foods/drinks “steal” qi by utilizing more qi in the body to process. When your body consumes cold and raw foods/drinks, it uses stored qi to heat it up and process it. Sugary and caffeine loaded foods/drinks give you artificial qi short-term but steal so much more qi long-term. (more…)

Local Posted 2 weeks ago

Modern medical research into the efficacy of Chinese Medicine for weight loss suggests that its approach can inhibit fat production, enhance intestinal peristalsis to increase stool clearance, improve blood circulation, and speed up the metabolism. Acupuncture plays a key role in this, but here are five things you can do on your own to support your weight loss efforts.

Use acupressure points on the ears to suppress hunger !

Located on the tiny triangle (or diamond) of cartilage that’s in front of the entrance to the ear canal are two powerful points for reducing appetite. Pinch that bit of cartilage intermittently for 30-90 seconds starting about 10-20 minutes before meals, or whenever you feel uncharacteristically hungry to prevent overeating. You can pinch either or both ears. (more…)

Replace sweets and starches with bitter foods!

Bitter is one of the five flavors in Chinese Medicine (along with spicy/pungent, sweet, salty, and sour/astringent). It is thought of as the weight loss flavor because bitter tastes are difficult to overeat and help to purge the bowels, including flushing toxins. Bitter flavors also increase digestive enzyme secretion, which improves signaling of fullness cues. Examples of bitter foods include cucumber, bitter melon, asparagus, and some lettuces. (more…)

Local Posted 2 months ago

Tendon massage is a series of massage techniques applied over the meridians and acupoints to stimulate blood circulation, remove blood clots, break up scar tissues and relax the muscles around the tendon.

From the TCM perspective, the blood and qi will flow smoothly once the meridians are cleared up, allowing the viscera to function effectively, in turn promoting speedy recovery.

Tendon massage can treat tendonitis conditions and tendon injuries, relieve spasms and pain, correct deformities as well as aid wear and tear in soft tissues.

This type of treatment is appropriate for exercise enthusiasts and sportsmen. These groups of people regularly put extra strain on the muscles, tendons and joints. In long term, stress often results in wear and tear injury. Tendon massage is effective in cultivating speedy healing.

At Kin Teck Tong, tendon massage is available across all 3 outlets (Eunos, Chinatown Point and Sports Hub) and performed by professional and experienced therapists. Each treatment session is typically 20 minutes. (more…)

Local Posted 2 months ago

Scraping is a TCM treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light bruising. The technique involves repeated pressure strokes over lubricated skin (typically with massage oil) with a smooth edged instrument.

The scraping therapy is used to release stangant blood. Stagnant blood flow is considered to be the cause of many diseases. The treatment quickly releases blockages caused by stagnant blood through promoting body fluid circulation which helps to normalize cellular metabolic processes and release toxic waste from deep cellular tissues. It also increases blood and qi circulation to help oxidize and nourish the cells. Regular sessions of the scraping therapy will also help to boost the immune system.

Scraping is an effective treatment for pain, aches and tension in the muscles. It can also be used for conditions such as Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI), nerve pain, migraine, rheumatism and help to prevent illnesses such as common cold, flu, fever, bronchitis and asthma.

At Kin Teck Tong, scraping is available across all 3 outlets (Eunos, Chinatown Point and Sports Hub) and performed by professional TCM physicians or therapists. Each treatment session ranges from 10 - 15 minutes. (more…)

Good Morning Everyone!

Learn about Cupping with us!

Dating back to the 1000 B.C., Cupping is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy that applies localized suction to the skin. Through the use of cups created with heat and suction pumps, the treatment method helps blood flow to achieve healing properties such as the clearing of tiny clots, promoting blood and energy circulation in vessels, reducing swelling, pain, expelling wind and cold from the body.

Cupping therapy is suitable for most people but it is advised that people who are extremely weak or thin with conditions such as diabetes, eczema, heart attacks, asthmatic as well as expectant mothers should try other forms of suitable treatment.

Cupping can be used effectively to treat conditions such as
- Cold and Flu
- Cough
- Bronchial Congestion
- Digestive Complaints
- Headache
- Back Pain
- Joint and Muscular Pain
- Rheumatic Conditions
- Hypertension
- Insomnia
- Stress and Anxiety
- Reduced Lymphatic Drainage

Cupping treatment is applicable for sports related injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, various pain issues and to boost one’s general well-being. Sportsmen can try cupping therapy for speedy recovery.

In general, a darker mark indicates that the area is bruised or injured. A healthy area of the body should be indicated by a mild pink mark. If the mark is too light, it indicates poor blood circulation around that area.

Normally, cupping marks should disappear within 5 to 10 days.

At Kin Teck Tong, cupping is available across all 3 outlets (Eunos, Sports Hib and Chinatown Point), performed by professional TCM physicians or therapists. Each treatment session ranges from 10 – 15 minutes. (more…)
