"Chinese Medicine can be effective in addressing most health conditions whether they manifest physically, psychologically, emotionally or spiritually."
Chinese Medicine offers an individual a different kind of healthcare system supported by thousands of years of empirical evidence which is being augmented by modern scientific research. It is an energy based medicine that is holistic in nature, unifying mind, body and spirit. Illness is considered an invitation to change - not the process of removing signs and symptoms, or returning to “normalcy” (the lifestyle that caused the original problems). True healing involves getting to the root of an imbalance, condition or illness, resolving it and moving into a state of harmony and balance. True healing has the capacity to turn around chronic, degenerative diseases, to stop the downward spiral of illness and to start promoting health.
In Chinese Medicine it is imperative to treat the person, not just the disease. Therefore, treatments are unique and individualized. For example, four patients with the same symptom of headaches would very likely be treated with four different unique treatments, each directed to the specific source of the headache.
Chinese Medicine consists of five branches that are used to treat illness: acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, food therapy, exercise (Tai Qi, Qi Gong, Yoga) and meditation.
