Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a 5000-year-old complete medical system that takes the laws and patterns of nature and applies them to the human body. TCM is based upon treating the root cause of illnesses, not just their symptoms. Holistic in its approach; it views every aspect of a person—body, mind, spirit, and emotions—as part of one complete circle rather than pieces to be treated individually. It is composed of the following aspects:

An array of Herbs and spices with a motar and pestle.

Qigong: energy exercises, generally encompassing simple movements and postures.

Herbal Therapy: the use of herbal formulas to strengthen and support organ system function.

Foods for Healing: the prescription of certain foods for healing based on their energetic make up, rather than amount of protein, carbohydrates and fat.

Chinese Psychology: the understanding of emotions and their relationship to the internal organ systems and their influence on health.

Acupressure (Amma Bodywork Therapy): the use of specific acupressure points and massage techniques to help Qi flow smoothly. Acupuncture: the insertion of needles in acu-points to aid Qi flow.
