History of Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been practised in the Far East for over 2000 years. It is a Healing modality that is simple and practical. It treats the Body-Mind-Spirit as a whole, and uses Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Nutrition, Lifestyle Changes, and Energy-Raising Exercises, such as Qi Kung and Tai Qi, to restore the patient to Optimum Health.

Ultimately, Traditional Chinese Medicine is a coherent system, grounded in common sense and useful not only for healing ailments but also for tapping hidden talents.

Acupuncture, herbs, foods and graceful movement are but tools to help you access your inner being and furnish it with the fuel it needs to flourish.

Every day more and more people are considering Traditional Chinese Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine as a natural and safe alternative to conventional medicine.

A Personalised Strategy

I am able to provide each individual with a personalised strategy for achieving optimum health by identifying the root cause of any symptoms and dealing with them, with the aim of preventing their reoccurrence. Optimum Health is everything to us, as without it life cannot be enjoyed to its fullest extent. To discover simple and effective ways to stay healthy and happy, we need to have a deeper understanding of the Natural Laws that govern our wellbeing.

This Ancient Traditional Eastern Approach has a very profound, simple, and highly effective understanding of the causes of disharmony on all levels.
It’s way of diagnosing is very practical and pro-active, cutting through confusion, delivering the treatment required, based on discovering and then treating the cause via the clues given by the various manifesting symptoms or ‘messengers’.

With this knowledge, the Practitioner is then able to help patients clear the symptoms, focus on Prevention, which in turn reduces the possibility of a relapse.
A clear understanding of our Constitutional Energy is essential – the strength of which has to be determined by the practitioner to be able to give the correct treatment.

Also a clear understanding of how our Energy is affected by the quality of the food we eat, and the air we breath, combined with a deep knowledge of Energy (Qi), Blood, Essence, Body Fluids, and Spirit.

From this knowledge we can develop an even deeper awareness of the Physical, Energetic, Mental (emotions, thoughts and feelings), and the Spiritual aspects of ourselves.

We can reverse most of our health problems, slow down our Ageing Process, and heal ourselves on all levels – with the inspiring possibility of reaching Optimum Health.
