The Chinese Medicine Sanctuary
The Chinese Medicine Sanctuary provides traditional Chinese medical treatment including acupuncture and herbal medicine in Guildford and Sreatham by a highly qualified English practitioner trained in both the UK and in China, and registered with both the British Acupuncture Council and the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine (two of the UK’s main regulatory bodies).
What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Traditional Chinese medicine is a complete medical system that has been used for more than 2,000 years and views the state of health in a completely different way to conventional biomedicine. The system is based around the Chinese concept of Qi (pronounced chee) and in a normal state of health, this Qi flows around the body in a harmonious fashion. When we are suffering from disease this flow of Qi is disrupted and may slow down or stagnate and causes an imbalance in the body’s functioning thus resulting in physical/mental symptoms.
How does Chinese medicine work?
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine work in a subtle way with your body to restore the harmonious flow of Qi. Traditional Chinese medicine aims to bring back balance by not only treating your symptoms, but also the root cause of your problems so that any changes made are of a more long-standing nature. Traditional Chinese medicine treatment works together with your body’s natural healing processes by supporting and boosting up the areas which are weak or deficient.
It is a very relaxing and calming method of treating the body and can be used to treat most diseases and symptoms so it is always worth getting in contact to find out how The Chinese Medicine Sanctuary may help you.
