A friend of ours invited us over to try out some bone/muscle care, mostly because we’re heavy computer users we tend to hunch and have bad postures.
Well mine was worse until I got the best chair evar!
Anyway, off we went to Kuchai Lama to check out Osso Bone Care to get pulled, whacked and scraped by the expert hands of Calvin Shun.
He’s studied both Eastern (TCM known as Dit Da) and Western (Osteopathy) styles of medicine and understands how to combine both to treat most ailments, they even treat fractures, breaks and dislocations (provided you go to the ECU and get an x-ray first – they have x-ray viewing facilities).
He can treat muscle (strains/pulles), nerve (trapped nerve), bone (most bones are slightly dislocated) and stress related conditions. Some treatments can take a few months (such as spine curvature) and some can be dealt with in 1-3 sessions.
Before they start they’ll ask you various questions about your body, stress level, how you sit, what kind of habits you have, what position you sleep in, if you have an particular pains or restriction in movement, if you have headaches and so on.
For me at that time I was having quite frequent shoulder ache, so I had him take a look at that. Apparently I have a slightly curved spine (which is bad) and can lead to uneven pressure on my head which can cause headaches, Calvin examining my back:
After some massaging he gave me a good bone scraping, which rather hurt!
Then he threw me around a bit, and got my back and neck straightened out a bit.
Yes I know…I’m a hairy beast!
When that was done with some magic formula was boiled up and applied to my neck, this is to heal the bones apparently. It smells a lot like the Dit Da Jow I used to apply after martial arts training.
You have to keep it on for 8-12 hours after treatment. It made my pillow smell kind of funky but I sure did feel better the next day.
The place is very nice and clean and bright with various medical diagrams and scupltures around to aid explanation by Calvin.
Also got a bottle of original Dit Da Jow, with Calvin’s own formula.
So if you have any pains, aches or symptoms doctors can’t help you with, you might need some bone pulling, scraping and general re-arranging.
The pricing is reasonable with the first visit at RM60/80 per session depending on which part of the body and subsequent visits are RM50/60 each.
