Chinese Herbal Medicine has been developed over many thousands of years and involves the use of plant based products ranging from exotic species to more common ingredients such as liquorice and ginger. While it began in China it is currently utilised the whole way across the world, to give successful treatment to an extensive variety of conditions. It is a wellbeing framework that is utilised preventatively, the reasoning behind this is to treat imbalance before it reaches chronic level or is too difficult to transform. Herbs are brilliant for internal conditions as they are able to directly affect the physiology of the body, for example, the organ systems and the fluids or blood.
Acupuncture is an extremely powerful, gentle and effective practice of medicine that has a number of different health benefits. Acupuncture specifically addresses this idea by working on making energy flow once again. Acupuncture utilises sterile, fine needles that are inserted into specific Acupuncture points and stimulated to remove blockages or stagnated Qi to remove pain, or to build and balance Qi and blood, encouraging the body to function normally again. The benefits of Acupuncture are vast and cover a wide variety of conditions, from digestive complaints (IBS, nausea, vomiting) to emotional disorders (depression, anxiety). It is also extremely useful for pain syndromes as a result of injury or connected with chronic degenerative diseases, for example, rheumatoid arthritis.
