What is Chinese Medicine?
The primary feature of modern Chinese Medicine is the premise that good health relies on the restoration and maintenance of harmony, balance and order in the individual.
At Cairns Chinese Medicine we take a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes and focus as much on the prevention of illness as we do on treatment. The origins of Chinese herbal medicine in China can be traced back at least 5,000 years, making it one of the oldest health care systems in the world. The practice of Chinese herbal medicine has become a natural and holistic system of primary health care.
From a Traditional Chinese Medicine viewpoint, if the flow of “qi” or energy flowing through the body’s meridians and organs becomes blocked, unbalanced or deficient , then the body fails to maintain harmony, equilibrium and balance; resulting in ill health.
Treatment aims to restore health by targeting the diseased organ and regulating Qi and blood flow to remove obstructions, strengthening deficiency, and improve digestion.
At Cairns Chinese Medicine we invite you to let us help you restore wellness and balance: physically, mentally and emotionally.
