Traditional Chinese Medicine
The principle of Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on the concept of balance and harmony between Yin and Yang, the external environment and internal body functions, the seven emotions (joy, anger, obsession, anxiety, sadness, horror and fear), the Qi (chee) and blood, the organs and bowels, deficiency and excess. Good health requires the smooth flow of the vital energy or Qi throughout the body. There are 14 major channels or meridians which form. A continuous pathway through the limbs to the torso and head, and from the center of the body to the periphery.
Altogether, this means that a TCM doctor won’t diagnose stomach ulcers, but “disharmony liver qi invading spleen” or “damp heat affecting The spleen”. Acupuncture or herbs might be needed to unblock the “stagnant Qi” or “clear the damp heat” and “tonify stomach yin”. With a 3,000 year history, Chinese medicine has stood the test of the time and continues to thrive in the modern western culture to improve our health. Your treatment will be tailored to your individual needs, addressing your specific imbalance and revitalizing you in a relaxed environment.
