3 reasons why Chinese medicine is good for you
Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine for health enhancement
Chinese medicine is first and foremost about enhancing one’s health and preventing ill health. Unfortunately, the modern approach to health is always about illness. You only visit the medical doctor if you are sick. Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbs, cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, etc, has been thrown into the thinking, much against its fundamental idea.
- The Chinese medicine physician examines the patient and seeks to promote the strengths of the patient’s constitution. In doing that, the weaknesses would be resolved over time. Acupuncture is used to harmonise the various systems within the body.
- Chinese medicinal herbs are a little like food but prescribed at a therapeutic level. Like food, herbs are used to nourish, to drain, to move various substances and energy in the body for a desirable outcome.
- Cupping, gua sha and moxibustion are other methods applied externally for the same beneficial result. Like the previous two approaches, they can be used to maintain one’s health.
Be smart. Don’t wait till you are ill to seek help. Book regular sessions to enhance your health and prevent illness.
