Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on the understanding that all things within the universe are composed of the same life force, namely Qi (pronounced ‘chee’). The ancient Chinese believed that Qi vibrates in constant energetic motion throughout the human body and directly influences all processes of life.
The Chinese masters of healing developed highly-skilled techniques, such as acupuncture and herbal medicine, to influence and balance the flow of Qi throughout the body, in order to achieve optimum health.
Acupuncture points are specific areas within the body and on the surface of the skin, where Qi emerges from deep energetic pools. The insertion of very fine, soft and flexible needles at these points gently influences the flow of Qi and stimulates overall energetic balance and physical wellbeing.
Acupuncture is recognised to be therapeutically effective by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for a broad range of conditions, including
* adverse reaction to radiotherapy &/or chemotherapy
* allergic rhinitis (hay fever)
* diabetes (type 2)
* dysmenorrhea (period pain)
* female infertility
* gastritis & peptic ulcer
* hypertension (stress)
* induction of labour
* irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
* knee pain
* lactation deficiency
* lower back pain
* malposition of foetus
* meniere’s disease
* morning sickness
* nausea & vomiting
* neck pain
* peri-arthritis of shoulder
* polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
* pre-menstrual syndrome
* raynaud’s disease
* recurrent lower urinary tract infection
* rheumatoid arthritis
* ulcerative colitis
As well as acupuncture, the use of herbs and herbal formula’s is an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine. Herbal medicine is both a science and an art, using specific parts of plants (flowers, leaves, stems, roots, bark, seed etc) for their ability to move and strengthen both Qi and blood throughout the body and support the function of internal organs. Chinese herbal formulas are a very powerful healing modality and may be used separately or combined with acupuncture.
Today, quality-controlled, concentrated herbal capsules make it easy to incorporate the potency of Chinese herbs into a demanding modern lifestyle.
