Why Chinese Medicine?
Chinese Medicine is somewhat unique in that it places great emphasis on the prevention of disease. In ancient China, Chinese doctors were paid to keep their patients well. If the patient fell ill, the payment ceased until the patient got better. This method ensured that practitioners regularly monitored their patient’s health in an effort to keep them well.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, treatment is patient specific. It aims to treat the root cause of the disease as well as symptoms. The various methods used include Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture (including electro-stimulating acupuncture), Cupping, Moxibustion, Tuina (Chinese Remedial Massage) and Diet-Therapy. Chinese Medicine has been shown to be effective and safe in the treatment of a wide range of ailments and disorders.
