About Chinese Medicine:
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an integrated system of health care that dates back over 5,000 years. In addition to providing effective treatment for a wide range of chronic and acute health disorders, TCM may also be used to maintain normal body functioning and assist with disease prevention.

According to TCM, when healthy an abundant supply of qi or “life energy” flows unimpeded through the body’s meridians. The meridians are a network of energy channels that flow through the body in well mapped pathways. If the flow of qi through the meridians becomes blocked or there is an inadequate supply of qi, the body fails to maintain normal function and illness or disease follows. TCM covers a range of therapeutic interventions including acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acu-points) along the body’s meridians. Stimulating these acu-points clears energy blockages and encourages the normal flow of qi through the body. The acu-points may be stimulated using other methods including moxibustion, cupping and massage in order to re-establish the flow of qi.

Chinese herbal medicine involves the use of herbs to regulate and normalise body function. Most Chinese herbs are of plant origin (leaves, seeds, twigs, stems, roots, flowers, fruit) and can be taken singly or in combination. Chinese herbs are available in a variety of forms.
