Chinese Medicine is a system of primary health care that works holistically to maintain or restore balance and harmony in our bodies. Chinese Medicine philosophy is based on principles of Yin and Yang and the concept of Qi. The origins of Chinese Medicine go back thousands of years, and work with the philosophy that balanced and free-flowing Qi (energy) results in health, while stagnant or imbalanced Qi leads to disease. Chinese Medicine is truly holistic in its approach and believes that the body, mind, spirit and emotions are all interlinked. It recommends that we as humans follow the universal laws of nature to achieve total harmony and health.
