Chinese Medicine is rooted in the Eastern philosophy of the Five Elements (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood). The process of natural healing is based on the balance and interrelationship of all material things in the universe.
What does this mean? Let’s take the ever-popular Yin-Yang symbol for an example. Yin representing night and Yang, day. If you notice, in the black side of the symbol you’ll see a circle of white, and in the white side, a circle of black. Completely opposite in qualities, yet depend on one another. Night and darkness cannot exist without light and day, and visa-versa. This poetic explanation of balance and harmony is the foundation of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). It is the bulletproof guide to how practitioners of Chinese Medicine treat the mind, body, and spirit, as one single unity.
Acupuncture allows the body to regulate the patient’s constitution by using its own healing potential. By focusing on the root of the imbalance, rather than the symptom alone, the body is able to heal properly with permanent recovery.
Treatments are customized to each patient depending on what specific disharmony or ailment is affecting them.
