Chinese medicine (commonly known as TCM) is a system of medicine that has been used for thousands of years. The principle of Chinese medicine is to attain balance. When the body is in balance there is an abundance of Qi (life force energy) flowing through the meridians of the body. If this flow of Qi is disrupted the body will exhibit signs and symptoms of distress.
The tools of chinese medicine include acupuncture, herbal medicine , acupressure, cupping, moxibustion and diet therapy.
Treatment using the methods of TCM will adjust and rebalance the body to achieve true harmony and wellness. Using the diagnosistic methods of Chinese medicine the practitioner will assess an individual’s constitution (the health of their whole body) and treat the root (cause) of a health concern along with a branch (symptoms)
The practice of Traditional Chinese medicine is regulated under the Australian health practitioner regulation act, to protect the public. Only registered acupuncturists can perform acupuncture which is a restricted title under this act.
To confirm the qualifications and experience of your Chinese medicine practitioner ensure that they are a registered acupuncturist and registered herbalist. This ensures that your practitioner is properly qualified, is bound by a code of ethics and participates in continuing education.
