Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese MedicineChinese medicine follows a tradition that dates back over 2000 years. There are wide range of medicine practices:

Though these are considered alternative medicines in the western world, throughout East Asia they are a common part of medical care. Chinese medicine is rooted in old traditions and in cosmological notions, like the yin-yang and Five Phases. Much of the medicine is also rooted in spirituality and nature. Always trying to find the balance within the body, and maintaining it.

There are many reasons and advantages to using Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine stresses the prevention of disease, rather then treating disease. One of the best Chinese medicines is acupuncture. Accupuncture is used as a non-medication therapy, the side effects with acupuncture are less than that of other medicines.

Chinese Medicine

Four acupuncture needlesChinese medicine assists the Qi. Qi is the flow of energy through the 12 meridians of the body. Each meridian flows through a certain part of the body, there are 6 upper body meridians and six for the lower body. All twelve of these meridians meet or intersect at different points.

Your acupuncturist will look for symptoms caused by the impeded flow of Qi along the meridians, e.g. Headaches, stomach pains, blood pressure problems and the condition of your overall health. Your acupuncturist uses this ancient form of Chinese medicine to regulate and aid the flow of Qi through these meridians. Based on the information he has gathered he will discern a pattern and be able to make a diagnosis and decide on treatment.

If your are being attended by a traditional healer he will decide between herbs, acupuncture and massage, all of which impact the flow of Qi in the meridians.
