What is Chinese Medicine?

Chinese Medicine is an art form that has been developed and refined over more than 3,500 years. Chinese Medicine often involves the implementation of Acupuncure, Cupping, Gua Sha, Moxibustion and Chinese Herbal Medicine to address what the Chinese describe as channel, substance and internal disharmony’s of the body.


Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture treats the individual holistically by incorporating physical, emotional and psychological factors into one view of the individual’s system. This holistic medicine also takes into account external factors such as lifestyle, diet and environment.


During an initial consultation, the practitioner will take a thorough history of the client and will also observe physical and emotional qualities that are presented. A Chinese Medicine Practitioner will observe their clients tongue, skin colour, temperature, voice strength and quality, mannerisms and pulse quality in the effort to gain an overall picture of the individual they are presented with.


A diagnosis from a Chinese Medicine Perspective is then created when all of this information is gathered.  Once a thorough diagnosis is formed, a treatment plan can then be developed. and implemented using Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, along with Dietary Advice.

Inflammation, mood, mental health and depression are all direct results from your gut heath. Many people with poor digestion suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, weight gain or weight loss, poor muscle tone, feelings of heavy body, foggy head, food intolerance’s or hemorrhoids.



MUSCULOSKELETAL ISSUES

When channels/meridians become blocked by either Blood or Qi or they become inflamed and hot or cold and blood deficient, pain, loss of function and immobility of the joints and muscles can ensure. Traumatic injury of the channels themselves can lead to the same pathology’s.


EMOTIONAL WELL BEING

 We now live in a very fast paced society. Often we don’t get enough time to nurture ourselves. Many people are now faced with Mental Health Issues that can be described as Depression (Liver Qi Disharmony), Anxiety (Heart blood deficiency), Fear (Kidney Deficiency), Mania (Heart heat) which can lead to or be a result of Poor Sleep and Insomnia. 

THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

Many people who have signs of a Hidden Pathogen complain of Chronic Fatigue, Frequent Colds and Flu’s that never seem to resolve, have episodes of Swollen Glands, or Alternating Fever and Chills. Feeling this unwell can be quite debilitating, especially when a person has been suffering such symptoms for years.
