TRADITIONAL EAST-ASIAN MEDICINE


Traditional East Asian Medicine commonly known as TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), or (TEAM) is a blanket term used to delineate various methods of healing practices developed in China, Japan, and Korea. Much of the core theory and philosophy of TEAM comes from China. And although Acupuncture and Qi Gong practices were not exclusive to China it was here that it developed greatly and influenced the surrounding islands of Japan and Korea; and thus each area developed their own unique systems of healing based on classical knowledge. The core principles of TEAM lay in centuries of accumulated knowledge and wisdom of the natural world and its effect on the human being.

MOXIBUSTION THERAPY


Moxibustion in particular is used to supplement the bodies innate ability to warm itself. By burning mugwort (Okyu/Ai Ye) on the skin, a gentle but deep penetrating heat is transferred internally. This increases the bodies ability to fight disease, engenders the increased production of white and red blood cells and leaves one with an inner feeling of warmth, strength and relaxation.

CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE


Chinese Herbal Medicine is by far one of the most sophisticated and effective healing systems on the planet. It is a system of medicine based on the classification of herbs, flowers, animals, insects, minerals and their energetic properties to promote homeostasis within the human being. Herbs are taken in the form of pills, tinctures or decoctions (soups). Its efficacy lies in the ability to supplement the body with the energy it needs to heal itself. Diagnosis is based on the the qualities of a persons pulse, the state of their tongue and other relevant information gained through inquiry. Once a persons issues are clearly identified in the form of a “pattern” of imbalance - the process of prescribing personalized herbal formulas begins.

TRADITIONAL EAST ASIAN DIETARY THERAPY


Like Chinese Herbal Medicine, foods are also understood and classified according to their energy. Where one type of food may be cooling for the body another may be heating. And if you are more of a cold type person than you should be incorporating more warming foods into your diet relative to the seasons. In this way dietary therapy achieves lasting effects for overall health and wellbeing. Knowing what to avoid is as important as knowing what to eat. Eating therapeutically can help support one in balancing their hormones and regulating their nervous system. The importance of what you eat, when to eat, and how you should eat is a key factor in preventative medicine.
