Capital Health Centre of Traditional Chinese Medicine - FAQ's & Staff Profiles
What is Chinese Medicine?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic system of health care which looks at physical, mental and emotional aspects of your life to help you stay healthy and maintain a high quality of life. All clients are unique in their illnesses and therefore must be assessed individually so as to establish the most effective medical approach to their problems. Incorporating the view of holism, Traditional Chinese Medicine also considers the influence of seasonal and climatic changes on the human body. TCM sees most conditions as temporary imbalances of the body, rather than permanent conditions. Also, it is believed that temporary conditions left untreated may progress into chronic permanent conditions. Chinese Medicine recognises that some chronic conditions are hard to eradicate. In these cases it aims to slow down the progress of those conditions and sustain a high quality of life in patients. The mental, physical and emotional aspects of a persons being are all considered. In this way, TCM is seen to be a two way road of information between patient and doctor where both parties need to share knowledge and work as a team to combat imbalance within the body.
What can Chinese Medicine offer?
Chinese medicine is holistic in that it not only attacks the illness, and treats symptoms, but it also restores balance to fundamental body functions as well as repairing the body after the illness has been eradicated. Chinese Medicine puts emphasis on the prevention of medical conditions through constant care of the body.
What should I expect when I go to a Chinese Medical doctor?
Before undergoing any Chinese medical treatments, having a 20-30 minute consultation will allow the practitioner to fully understand your condition. During the consultation you will be asked to fill out a form, the doctor will look at your tongue, take your pulse and ask you questions about your lifestyle, medical history and conditions. If you have any recent doctors reports relevant to your condition, our practitioners would appreciate looking at them; however they are not essential. After collecting your personal details the practitioner will discuss the features of your individual imbalances with you, their underlying causes and possible treatment approaches using Traditional Chinese Medicine. For complex cases a consultation will take longer than 30 minutes and may involve, with your agreement, discussion with other experienced practitioners.
How long will I need to be treated for?
Treatment plans will be developed individually to your specific condition. The frequency and length of treatment time will depend on individual conditions. Usually if the condition is acute then the treatment will be quite frequent, for example a few sessions a week, but the length of treatment will be shorter, for example only a couple of weeks. If the condition is chronic it will need attention for a longer period of time however with less frequent treatment sessions. A treatment plan will be custom made and discussed with you in detail by our Chinese Medicine practitioners.
Is it safe?
Chinese Medicine has been registered as an official health care profession in Australia since July 2012, with a long history in Australia before that. This registration means the profession is regulated, creating set standards of care throughout the country and reassuring patients of the safety and quality of Chinese Medicine services and registered providers in Australia. Chinese Medicine has a history of thousands of years. Theory and practical methodology have been studied and improved over time. Research is constantly being conducted to ensure the continual improvement of the profession and its treatment approaches. Practitioners at the Capital Health Centre of Traditional Chinese Medicine have extensive practical experience and training in Traditional Chinese Medicine and take part in regular professional development. We are all committed to maintaining our knowledge and improving our skills.
Whats different with Chinese Medicine?
TCM sees each person as having a unique and complex web of physical and emotional interactions and processes. Diagnosis in TCM is about determining underlying patterns and syndromes and how these are reflected in conditions, behaviours and emotions. Treatment is about restoring balance. This compares to the greater focus in Western Medicine on visible and detectable symptoms and its emphasis on measurable biochemical processes that drive disease, its treatment and health and on chemical and other external interventions. Increasingly, both are being used as complementary approaches to health and wellbeing.
Which conditions are commonly treated by Chinese Medicine?
Neurological conditions (headaches, migraines), stroke recovery and paralysis management Cardiovascular disorders, respiratory conditions ENT Conditions (Ear, nose and throat and eyes) Skin conditions Musculoskeletal disorders including sporting injuries Psychological conditions (insomnia, drug addiction, mental health issues) Can help when quitting smoking and trying to lose weight Post-operative rehabilitation and rehabilitation after chemotherapy. Metabolic conditions, allergic sensitivity and food and chemical intolerance etc.
