WHAT IS CHINESE MEDICINE?
Chinese Medicine has been practised for more than three thousand years in China and has been applied in millions of cases and tested in clinical settings. This system of medicine has a different history and approach than Western medicine. Rather than treating disease, a Chinese Medicine practitioner treats patterns of disharmony (or symptom clusters) in a patient.
This form of medicine takes a holistic approach to understanding the body’s normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness and general health maintenance as it does on presenting symptoms.
The belief in Chinese Medicine is that the free flow of Qi, blood and body fluids, and the dynamic balance between Yin and Yang ensures good health. Traditional Chinese Medicine works along the principle that when there is a disruption in the circulation or the balance is altered from depletion or blockage, there is disharmony in the body and disease, and or pain can occur.
A Chinese Medicine diagnosis is obtained by palpation of the pulse and abdomen, observation of the body including the tongue and complexion, detailed questioning about the main complaint and overall health and lifestyle. From palpation, observation and questioning a Chinese Medicine pattern is revealed which guides the appropriate treatment.
