chinese medicine

Chinese medicine is a complementary and complete system of medicine with over 3000 years of history. Chinese medicine’s primary objective is to help preserve health by seeking to restore the body’s balance. Chinese medicine works on both the energetic and physical levels to affect all aspects of a person including mind, body and spirit. It is a dynamic and holistic medicine which views health as harmony and disharmony as the cause of illness and or pain.  The beauty of Chinese medicine is that it can be used to correct imbalances even before the appearance of symptoms. This is the highest level of Chinese medicine, to prevent disease.

Chinese Medicine has its own form of diagnostic tools and treatments which includes, not only a detailed medical intake but  sophisticated pulse taking and observation of the tongue. Chinese medicine treatments address  imbalances using acupuncture, herbal remedies, moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, as well as food and lifestyle modifications.
