For treating rhinitis, other than Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture, there is an option with topical treatment, namely Tianjiu.
Rhinitis and allergy is the hyper-active reaction to allergen and causing irritation to eye, nose, pharynx and larynx. Causes could be seasonal or perennial, including seasonal to pollen, or perennial to dust, hair and fungus.
Factors that trigger rhinitis includes pollution, food, drink, chemical and stress. Patients need to avoid factors which causing their allergy, and improve the immune system by adopting healthy life style, such as enough resting and exercise, eating fresh and nutritious food, avoid excessive fatigue.
TCM would make use of seasonal change of temperature to strengthen body constitution, and the treatment technique calls "TianJiu". Under the TCM theory, body qi would become strongest among the whole year, and they would use topical medicine in special day to promote skin circulation. It is believed that it can modify the immune function and treat rhinitis.

William’s holistic approach to illness and injury is what makes his treatments so effective. His Keen understandings of the impact of the psychological or the physical ensure all aspects are treated. I appreciate William’s extensive knowledge but especially the time he takes to patiently explain what is happening to my body and how his treatments will improve my condition. I have explicit faith in William and he has helped me where mainstream medicine cannot.
The treatment is very good and I recovered in a very short time, very appreciated. Thanks.
After having many different treatments in Holland, including trigger point therapy, manual therapy and other treatment approaches. I finally felt comfortable that this treatment with acupuncture and cupping would release me from my back/sciatica pain. After several treatments I started to feel stronger and noticed that my pains were more controllable and less painful. I'm really happy that Williams' treatment helped me to be more aware of the things that caused this pain and that we gradually got to a good result!
治療の効果があらわれるので、香港に行くといつもDr.Loの診療所を訪ねています。 西洋医学に慣れ親しんでいる私共には少し奇異に思えますが、Dr.Lo は伝統的な東洋医学の方法で身体全体より診察されます。 体質を分析して下さるので、一箇所の治療だけでなく他の関連性も分かります。 私の場合、細やかな診察の後、通常はカッピング(吸玉)と鍼治療が施されます。 そして、手技によって凝りや歪みを調整していただくと、身体が軽くなります。もう少し頻繁に通院できれば、長年患う腰痛も完治できるのでは・・・ 初診の際は時間のゆとりが必要と思いますので、前もって予約の上訪問される ことをお勧めします。 料金の設定もきっちりされ適切と思います。
