Chinese Medicine is a healing art with an elegant approach to complicated health issues. It has a rich history of more than 2,000 years of clinical application with a philosophy that believes in empowering the body to function correctly to address disease. Signs and symptoms of disease like pain, insomnia, intestinal disorders, and headache along with a thorough evaluation of the rest of the body and how it functions are used to guide the practitioner in determining a treatment plan that attempts to remove a person’s obstacle to achieving health. The skilled practitioner is able to use a person’s symptoms as warning signs to address further complications of disease.
The tools of a Classical Chinese Medicine practitioner include:
- Herbal therapy
- Diet and lifestyle modifications
- Physical movement exercises or qi gong
