Chinese Medicine

Channel scrubbing (or gua sha in Chinese), which will be explained in detail, very effectively clears stagnant Qi (energy), blood and toxins in the meridians and muscles. In Chinese medicine the stagnation of Qi (energy), blood and toxins are often the cause of stiffness, sharp or dull pain and lack of movement in the shoulders, neck and limbs. Scrubbing dredges the muscles and meridians very quickly removing the stagnation.

Pulse diagnosis is an extremely effective method of helping a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner to provide an accurate diagnosis. The pulse is very important for two main reasons. The main reason is that it provides extremely detailed information of the condition of the internal organs. It does this because it reflects the state of Qi (energy) and blood in the body. As well as indicating the state of the internal organs, the pulse also identifies external, short-term influences (ie. a flu or cold).

Chinese medicine diagnosis is extremely unique and differs from other forms of medicine. It encompasses observational diagnosis, scent diagnosis, verbal probing diagnosis and pulse diagnosis.

Did you know, Chinese medicine believes that every part of the human body is inter-related with each other. This is in accordance to the basic principles of the 5 elements and meridian study. Because of this, if any of the five senses experience any discomfort sensations, it is indicative of disease changes in either one or two internal visceral organs (heart, liver, spleen, lung and kidney), thereby reflecting in its external symptoms.
