About the herbs
Chinese Herbal Medicine works on the same diagnostic basis as Acupuncture. Its aim is to treat the presenting symptom AND the underlying cause by stimulating the body’s own healing ability. As with Acupuncture the process is one of looking for connections rather than reducing focus on a single symptom. With Chinese medicine several symptoms can have the same underlying cause, and therefore by treating this, several problems can be addressed with one treatment principle. The tradition as a whole places great emphasis on lifestyle management in order to prevent disease before it occurs.
About the Acupuncture
Acupuncture in the west is an alternative health-care system that can offer real relief for a variety of medical conditions. Chinese Medicine attempts to treats disease by re-establishing healthy physiology the normal flow of a healthy life. Diagnosis in chinese Medicine looks at all aspects of health and welbeing and sees pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment, then, is to restore the body’s equilibrium.
