Health & Wellness

Chinese medicine is a system of medicine partly based on the idea that energy or qi, flows along pathways in the body called meridians. In this belief, if the flow of energy along these meridians is blocked or unbalanced, illness can occur.

Causes of qi imbalance are thought to involve:

  • External forces, such as wind, cold, or heat.
  • Internal forces, such as emotions of joy, anger, or fear.
  • Lifestyle factors, such as poor diet, too little sleep, or too much alcohol.

Another important concept in Chinese medicine is the concept of yin and yang. In this approach, all things, including the body, are composed of equally opposing forces. These forces may be demonstrated in diet, exercise, emotional experiences, and climate exposure. Health is said to depend on the balance of these forces. Chinese medicine focuses on restoring balance to maintain health and prevent illness.

Chinese medicine practitioners look at the balance of body, mind, and spirit to determine how to restore energy, balance, and good health.
