About Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine is a traditional complementary medicine ideally suited to curing the aches and pains of modern lifestyles. It has been proven to be effective in alleviating the symptoms of muscular pain, arthritis, chronic fatigue, pre or post menopausal syndromes and many other ailments. Patients are frequently astonished at the improvement in happiness and lifestyle that can be brought about by traditional treatments such as acupuncture, herbal medicine and traditional Chinese massage.

Fundamental Concepts

Chinese Medicine is based on a tradition of knowledge which has accumulated over thousands of years. The underlying philosophy is based on energy (known as "Qi") flowing through the body. Chinese medicine believes that health in the body and mind depends on the free flowing of Qi throughout the body, and that when this flow is blocked or disrupted, it causes the certain bodily functions to become over active or under active, resulting in physical illness, or mental or emotional imbalance.

The job of a Chinese Medicine practitioner is to detect the energy channels which are blocked, and provide treatment to restore balance and energy flow. This is achieved with the aid of different therapeutic tools such as herbs and acupuncture.

What you can expect in a session

A typical treatment normally lasts for forty-five minutes to an hour. Your Chinese Medical practitioner starts by asking for your medical history and signs and symptoms. He or she will take your pulse, examine your tongue, check for sites of pain in various channels of energy flow and come up with a diagnosis based on the findings. Your diagnosis will be explained to you in Chinese Medicine terms so you can understand what is happening and the possible causes for the pattern to develop over time. After that, various tools such as acupuncture, moxibustion, and herbal medicine will be used as necessary to correct the energetic imbalance. You will also be given certain exercises, stretches and diet recommendations which will facilitate recovery between treatments.

What conditons can be managed by Chinese Medicine?
