One of the things that drew our founder Philippa to Chinese medicine was the use of plants, herbs as medicinals.
When we assess Chinese Medicine, we can see the relationship between this modality and body composition along with balanced health historically. It has brilliant synergy. The key to successful medicine lies in its efficacy. A popular Chinese saying states “Excellence is from experience.” The foundation of traditional Chinese medicine is based on 2000+ years of practice and experiences.
In the practise of Chinese Medicine, we observe the condition of the body and its elements, then assist the body with acupuncture and herbs to rebalance the body into a state of harmonious Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) Chinese medicine as a natural medicine takes into account every aspect of life, the climate, a person’s particular living and working environment and food. The state of their life, contentment, relationships. It is very complete and not at all one dimensional.
Observance of the pathology in the whole body includes its various energy streams. As we touch on in our other pages, the body is viewed in Chinese Medicine as a system of energy, called “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). Qi courses through the body using paths called “meridians.” The simplified version of Qi consists of two main complementary energy forces: yin and yang.
Yin energy is slow and cold. Yin derives from quiet activities like resting, meditation, and deep breathing.
Yang energy is fast and hot. Yang energy comes from challenging physical and mental activities, such as exercise, concentrated effort, and external forces that cause stress.
We seek to help restore balance in the two energy forces.
