How does Traditional Chinese Medicine help?
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are components of Traditional Chinese Medicine. They are very safe and effective treatments which can treat a wide range of health conditions. Both of these ancient disciplines take three approaches to health care: to treat health conditions, to maintain good health, and to prevent reoccurrence of the existing, and other, medical conditions.
Traditional Chinese medicine can successfully identify and treat a very wide range of health conditions. By finding and rectifying imbalances in the body, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can provide treatment and relief of symptoms. Additionally, both modalities can identify and focus on the root energetic imbalance at a deeper level than other health care techniques.
Once the body is brought back into balance by acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatments, health and wellbeing then needs to be maintained. Traditional Chinese Medicine can also be used as a maintenance treatment plan for a number of long term or chronic health conditions. In some instances, it can reduce the need for medication and even surgery by providing a comfortable state of health and wellbeing. It is advisable to have regular acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatments in order to maintain normal body functioning and general health.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatments are also successful preventative methods of treatments. They work to detect and diagnose health imbalances in the body, often before the illness or injury occurs. This can be done often before Western medicine is able to detect a problem. Having regular acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatments helps to restore the body back into balance which will naturally prevent unfavourable health conditions from developing.
