Health Promotion and TCM

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient medical system with a core holistic,
whole-person approach providing both a structure to evaluate health-defining
behaviours and promote positive change.


"There exist no miraculous methods in the world, only plain ones,
but the perfection of the plain is miraculous."
                         ---- Fei Bo-xiong


Traditional Chinese Medicine theory does not separate the body and mind and thus the
key objective is to achieve integration, balance and harmony of all mind and body
functions. To achieve this TCM employs treatments such as:

  • Acupuncture and moxibustion
  • Auricular (ear) acupuncture
  • Acupressure and Tui Na
  • Cupping therapy
  • Modification of exercise, diet and lifestyle

And you don't even have to be "sick" to benefit....
.....Acupuncture for minor maladies

Through its ability to cultivate wellness, TCM prepares us to withstand the storm without
being disabled by it and therefore reaches far beyond just issues of physical ill-health.

Take for example each day you suffer from a perennial lethargy and by mid afternoon
you are overwhelmed with a mental fatigue which renders you unfocused and
unproductive for several hours.

Add to this, you have perishing cold extremities despite that the rest of you is warm and
your lower back aches periodically, you have an insatiable craving for sweet foods, are
prone to worry and a good quality, restful night's sleep is so rare an occurrence that
getting out of bed each morning is a monumental effort, and after which this daily cycle
starts all over again.

If you had never before thought to connect these sufferings you would be forgiven, as
our modern health care system would dismiss these as common and "normal". In TCM,
each of the above minor symptoms assumes a new meaning within a much greater
picture and has the potential to respond well to acupuncture treatment. So the real
question is, why suffer?



When to have Acupuncture

Any time! Acupuncture supports health at all times and therefore even when we are not
"ill", we can still always feel better.

Taking advantage of this valuable benefit could be in the form of:

  • Regular monthly acupuncture treatments to promote and maintain physical and
    mental health
  • A short course of acupuncture sessions at the turn of each season to support
    physical and mental health
  • A short course of acupuncture sessions prior to travel to support health while on
    holiday
