Chinese medicine includes all
Asian traditions emerging from Southeast Asia that have their origins in
China. It is a complete medical system that includes herbal therapy,
acupuncture, dietary therapy, herbal and supplement therapy, and exercises
in breathing and movement (tai chi and qi gong), meditation, manual therapy,
cupping, gua-sha and other needling therapies. Several of these therapies
may be employed in the course of treatment. Clinical strategies are based
upon diagnosis of patterns of signs and symptoms that reflect an imbalance.
Basically How does it work?
TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) uses the tongue and pulse along with a
series of questions, to determine which meridian is imbalanced. Point are
then chosen according to their ability to correct the specific imbalance and
are stimulated by needles, heat, cups or pressure.
Chinese is based on the concepts of Yin and Yang. It aims to understand and
set to correct balance the ways in which a person's Qi or vitality may be
depleted or blocked. It recognizes that health is more than just the absence
of symptoms or disease, and it has a unique capacity to maintain and enhance
our capacity for well-being and happiness.
People of any age or constitution can use Chinese medicine. Your
practitioner will take any previous or current illness or medication into
account before providing treatment. With suitable adjustments for dosage and
with some provisos, which your practitioner will determine, children and
pregnant women can very well be treated by Chinese medicine.
