Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient holistic approach to health and embraces the ‘four levels’ of the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual body.
What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Over two thousand years ago, the Chinese realised that the causes of disease in the body resulted from diet, lifestyle, and the harsh elements of our earth. In addition to this, they recognised that emotional imbalance could disturb health. Today we might interpret this as stress which may then result in obstruction of the channels, meridians, and pathways.
Traditional Chinese Medicine looks at diagnosing where these obstructions have occurred and assists to bring them back into balance in order to restore health.
When obstructions are present, it will often cause pain and when the body’s natural signalling systems break down, it is believed that this paves the way for disease.
