Traditional Chinese medicine teaches us that all disease begins with the emotions.
Anger can disrupt liver function; fear can impair kidney function; anxiety can destroy the heart; worry may dampen the energy of the spleen; and resentment will weaken the digestive system.
Conversely, healing and repairing imbalances in the physiology of our organs can lead to a lighter, healthier attitude and emotional balance. Health is a MIND/BODY/SPIRIT interactive dance.
Each partner in the dance must be well balanced, well nourished and practiced choreography in order to acquire and maintain dynamic health.
Acupuncture, Cupping, Acupressure, Herbal formulas, and Qigong are common forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Acupuncture can help treat addictions and Cupping is used to relax tense muscles from strain. Herbal formulations of plants can help with infections within the body and Acupressure can promote better blood circulation. Qigong which incorporates posture and body movements can help with mental health and focus.
Incorporating the teachings and practices of this ancient medicine into our daily lives can help us find balance and harmony within ourselves.
