Chinese medicine is a system of healing which has been practised in China for thousands of years. Chinese medicine is based on the concepts of Yin and Yang. It aims to understand and treat the many ways in which the fundamental balance and harmony between the two may be undermined and the ways in which a person’s Qi or vitality may be depleted or blocked. Clinical strategies are base upon a diagnosis of patterns of signs and symptoms that reflect the imbalance.
Chinese medicine treats the body as a whole, not only the complaint, but also the balance of the body. Further more, Chinese medicine recognizes that health is more than just the absence of disease but that it has a unique capacity to maintain and enhance our capacity for well being and happiness.
