June 17, 2007 - PRLog -- The strength and flexibility of Chinese medicine is a direct result of the Chinese philosophical views and understandings from which the medicine is drawn. Chinese philosophy provides us with different approaches to viewing our nature, the workings of our bodies, the manifestation of disease and the process of healing. While it is true that no single system of philosophy holds all of the answers, the Chinese framework provides us with a wealth of guidance and practical techniques to foster physical and mental health.
The basic techniques within CTM are acupuncture, bodywork (tuina), energywork (qi gong), and herbal medicine. These techniques have been used for thousands of years to help heal diseases of the mind, body and spirit. Today eastern medicine techniques are used to treat conditions from back pain, to depression, to cancer.
In addition to the medical techniques and theories, Chinese philosophy and tradition provides one with many opportunities for self-healing. Through theories related to diet, exercise, and mental development people can strengthen their energy, heal disease and improve their vitality. Practices such as tai chi and the many varieties of Qi gong and meditation have been shown over time and through modern research to improve immunity, balance our emotions and strengthen our bodies.
Herbal Medicine has been used for centuries by people all over the world to treat disease and promote health. Both the west and the east have spent considerable time, research and energy developing the theories and applications within the field of herbal medicine. Herbs are generally easy to administer and cost-effective and when properly prescribed and used, have the advantage of being relatively free of side effects when compared to western pharmaceutical medicines.
