The application of Traditional Chinese Medicine can be used to address the myriad of manifestations that the body chooses to present, due to its individualised diagnosis system, addressing the patient, not the problem. This enables Chinese Medicine to access the root cause of the problem and by addressing the cause of the problems, enables alleviation of the symptoms and bringing the organs back into balance.
The difference between the utilisation of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine is in their actions on the body;
- Acupuncture addresses the external manifestations i.e. signs and symptoms, by working on the blockages of energy (Qi) moving through the Meridians. In this fashion, the acupuncture accesses Qi of the organs via the external channels.
- Chinese Herbs however, as they are being ingested, work quickly to address the key organs out of balance from an internal aspect. This returns them to a state of balance and harmony and alleviating the current symptoms. Although they do have an effect on the exterior of the body, it is via the internal organs that the exterior is accessed.
