What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a natural healing system that has been practised in China for 5000 years, with acupuncture and herbs being its main methods. It is a complete healthcare system based on a holistic understanding of our bodies, minds and spirits, which are interacting with each other. TCM views the human body not only as a physical combination of muscles, bones, blood etc, but also as a small energy system in conjunction with the outside energy system – the planet or the universe. When there is stagnation, imbalance of elements inside the body, or disharmony between the individual and universal energy systems, problems and illnesses occur.
To illustrate this theory simply: for example, if we expose ourselves to a very cold environment, we will catch a cold, possibly leading to a lung infection. This is because there is a disharmony between our body and the outside energy system; while discomfort like a headache is normally caused by blockage of life energy - chi - within the body. Of course, other illnesses might be a lot more complicated, as different parts of the physical and spiritual sides are interfering with each other in different ways at the same time.
What treatments does TCM offer?
Our treatments include acupuncture, herbal remedy, cupping, gua sha, moxibustion and acupressure - therapy massage. There are many different acupuncture techniques out there these days. Here in Naturalway, we offer traditional Chinese acupuncture, we would like to think it is the most efficient way.
