Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture

Foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine 

Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Food Cures and Tui Na are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine; an ancient medical system that takes a deep understanding of the laws and patterns of nature and applies them to the human body. It is a complete medical system that has been practised for thousands of years.

The true foundation of Chinese Medicine is "Qi", which loosely translates as vital force or life energy. Qi is considered to be the force that animates and informs all things. In the human body Qi flows through the meridians (energy pathways) creating a continuous circuit linking internal organs and connecting the interior with the exterior. Disease occurs when there is a deficiency or excess of Qi in internal organs and disruption to this flow in the meridians.

Healing with TCM & Acupuncture

By stimulating key points on the body with needles (acupuncture), Chinese therapeutic massage (Tui Na), Chinese herbal medicine and cupping (suction) internal organs are tonified, excesses are dispersed, blockages are removed and imbalances corrected.

At the heart of Chinese Medicine is the tenet that the root cause of illness, not the symptoms, must be treated. Therefore it's a holistic approach as it views every aspect of the person - mind, body, spirit and emotions - as part of one complete circle.

What Conditions can TCM help?

Traditional Chinese Medicine is great for treating or assisting with the healing of all conditions: physical, emotional and energetic. If you suffer from digestive problems, skin conditions, cardiovascular or immune disorders you may benefit from Chinese Herbal Medicine, Chinese Food Cures and Acupuncture. 

Emotional health factors such as stress, fatigue and anxiety affect many people in our bustling society. Tui Na, Acupuncture and Food Cures, being natural remedies, are often preferable to prescription pharmaceuticals for these conditions. 

Acupuncture is also a very popular and effective treatment, in both women and men, for issues surrounding fertility & conception.
