Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used as a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for many years. It is especially effective for the relief of acute or chronic pain and prevention or treatment of various diseases. It involves the painless insertion of ultra-thin single use needles into specific points on the body called acupoints, to "re-balance" the flow of the body's energy. It is one of the core services of Balance Health in Hong Kong.

Cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice that involves suctioning or vacuuming sections of the body. The cups are heated by swabbing rubbing alcohol on the bottom and then lighting the cup. It can also be done by placing an inverted cup over a flame to aid in suctioning.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha/Scraping treatment(Chinese: 刮痧) is a natural therapy of which practitioners of Chinese Medicine apply a tool to scrape patient’s skin along selected meridians or muscles.

Dr Clara helped me manage to leave all the medication, stress and gave me peace of mind
“If you are considering acupuncture for any reason, Balance Health is the place to go with nice atmosphere and supportive people. After losing pregnancies me and my husband were hopeless and helpless could find our way forward. Although so desperate we were still trying to look for any natural way to conceive, before any less natural option getting pregnant.
That’s when Balance Health and Dr Clara Chan came. Dr Clara helped me manage to leave all the medication, stress and gave me peace of mind. Clara’s persistence and support played key role in preparing my body and soul to be ready to carry our baby till his birthday! ,
A year after starting my visits with Dr. Clara, we welcomed our beautiful baby boy Levi into our lives and we could not be happier with the guidance and kindness from Clara during this challenging time in our lives. “

Dr. Clara is a cheerful, friendly, bright person and she always brightened up my mood when I was worried of my menstrual health.
“I was diagnosed as PCOS and receiving fertility treatment before I visited Dr. Clara at Balance Health. Due to the continuous medication and hormonal injections, my menstrual pain became worse and worse, so I decided to take a break with the fertility treatment and started visiting Dr. Clara. Dr. Clara helped me to improve my menstrual cycle in the first 3 months with acupuncture, moxibustion and Chinese herbs and I felt a big improvement in my menstrual pain. After 3 months of treatment, I was not able to visit her for 6 weeks but she prescribed me Chinese herbs to take to maintain my improved menstrual condition. I started visiting her again and after a month, I found out I was pregnant!
Dr. Clara is a cheerful, friendly, bright person and she always brightened up my mood when I was worried of my menstrual health.
Me and my husband never thought that we could conceive naturally, so we are really happy and appreciate the support that Dr. Clara has given us throughout the treatment.”

I have been having so much pain on the right side of the neck, shoulder, upper back, and arm. The whole of the right side feels very tight and strain I can’t even use the computer and do the typing that day. The worst was my neck, it was so tight the pain reached the back of the ear and the head. I had pain also on the end of the right shoulder when I lifted my arm. It’s been there for about 2 months I couldn’t bare the pain anymore so I asked Dr Clara for help. Dr Clara first done Gua Sha scraping on the area that I had pain on the neck and shoulder, back of the ear and the head. She pointed that the corner of my neck and shoulder was very weak where I had the pain deep enough there is a knot under the skin. And I had cupping for about 10mins. After that she applied acupuncture on the shoulder end.

I had instant relieved on that day I can get back on the computer straight after the first treatment. The next day the pain is not there anymore in the neck and the shoulder end. I still feel a little pain on the scapular area but most of the strain has gone. Most importantly, I don’t need to carry the tiredness with me to work anymore, my energy was fully back 2 -3 days after the treatment.

A zen place with very friendly staff. Incredibly supportive and helpful. I visited Dr. Clara for a health check up and found it quite useful. It was overall an efficient appointment with a reasonable price.

The place is aesthetically pleasing, westernized but with professionals that have a thorough Chinese medical knowledge. Nice aroma of Chinese herbs and oils.

The receptionist Natasha was particularly friendly and forthcoming with a welcoming attitude.
