What is Chinese Medicine?
Chinese Medicine is the longest existing continuous medical system practiced in the world, informed by more than 5,000 years of observations of the human body, mind and spirit. Classical Chinese Medicine acts more than just a temporary analgesic, excelling at diagnosing and treating the root cause of imbalances that manifest as painful symptoms, diseases and emotional distress. In this way, physical and emotional pain can be effectively alleviated and resolved, leading to long term wellness.
The Mind-Body is an energetic system in dynamic transition between balance and imbalance. The driving force of Qi, all pervasive, flowing in established patterns of functional relationship within nature and in our bodies through pathways and meridians.
The primary perspective of Chinese Medicine that informs diagnosis and treatment is the view of the human being as a whole. This allows a freedom of movement between aspects of our well being, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Treating one aspect will affect all parts, just as in an ecosystem – there is an interdependence and synergy.
Chinese Medicine cultivates the art of self – discovery, often healing happens on multiple levels in surprising ways.
