About Traditional Chinese Medicine

Today’s ‘Western’ medicine attempts to cure illness by focusing on the symptoms, meaning the mainstream medical community frequently recommends a single treatment for many different diseases.  In contrast, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) seeks out the many causes of an illness, thereby concentrating on achieving health and wellbeing through the cultivation of harmony within our lives.  The primary feature of modern TCM is the premise that good health relies on the restoration and maintenance of balance and order for each specific individual.

TCM has an uninterrupted history of development in China and other parts of East Asia dating back thousands of years. The concept is based on the Chinese concept of ‘Qi’, pronounced ‘chee’, generally known as the ‘vital energy’ flowing through the invisible pathways or energy channels webbing through our body. These meridians are believed to each correspond to an organ and run along the body to either the hand or foot. Most acupuncture and acupressure points lie on a meridian which is why reflexology is so popular.

When a person is totally healthy, an abundant supply of Qi flows through the meridians. If the flow becomes blocked or there is an inadequate supply, then the body fails to maintain harmony and then Illness may follow, usually as a result from stress, overwork, poor diet, disease pathogens, weather /environmental conditions, and other lifestyle factors.

The TCM philosophy is also rooted in the theory of ‘yin and yang’, the harmony of all the opposite elements and forces that make up existence.   In essence TCM integrates healing powers with the wisdom of nature to successfully work with many diseases, as well as injuries and emotional imbalances.  This is why today it is used by millions of people worldwide.
