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.
Head over to Osso Bone Care now!
You can read about Kim’s visit over here: I popped me wrist!
I think I need a woman to treat my old bone. 🙂
how much hair came out when they peel off the thing? 😛
Hmm. never really believed in chinese medical ways. but seems decent enough! =)
Bone scraping sounds…unconventional. I’m not a huge fan of Oriental medicative techniques too…
…unless, the Chinese herbal medicine contains opium. 😉
You seemed to have skipped the part on whether or not you found the treatment effective…I wonder why.
Dabido: Haha yeah I agree.
KY: Enough to make my eyes water!
kevin: Yah worth a try definitely.
Huai Bin: Yah it’s interesting to say the least, I’ll give anything a try to be honest.
charis: It was effective for my shoulder ache, but I need long term treatment to correct my spine curvature it’d take 6-9 months.
Same here. 🙂
I’ll go for just about anything at least once. Great minds think alike (?).
A friend of mine asked me to the scraping thing for him once, when he had shoulder pain or something. Why not ask a friend to do it for you. Generally massage the area to loosen up the muscles first, then get a porcelin chinese soup spoon, and scrape over the neck and shoulder area. To make the skin ‘smoother to scrape’, you can put ointment oils before the scraping. It will ‘burn’ a little and the skin will turn red (blood rushing to the surface), but it works!
wow that is really good, need to find one here in east M’sia
Huai Bin: Indeed, life is for living 🙂
in: Yah it does help, we used to do similar things during martial arts training.
Darren: Must be some somewhere.
I go there regularly before this when I saw it in newspaper. Was there last week, and Calvin got a chuckle when told that I saw him on your website hahaha.
CH: Hehe that’s good 😀
