Sen, the traditional Chinese Medicine treats illnesses holistically - it looks at root causes not surface problems.
So how does traditional Chinese medicine work then?
Well, yin-yang is perhaps the most general of several key concepts.
The holistic approach of Chinese medicine means that both mind and body are seen as interconnected.
The passions chronic fear, sudden fright, anxiety, over-excitement, over-thinking, sadness and irritability - are seen as both the cause but also the symptoms of internal disharmony and illness. You may be feeling a lingering sadness due to a lung condition, but equally the emotion may be physically weakening your lungs.
So, when you meet a Chinese medicine practitioner they are just as likely to ask you what mood you're in as they are to listen to your chest.
Isn’t there one way to sum up traditional Chinese medicine?
Yes there is its called Qi, and it's probably the most important of all the traditional philosophical principles.
Qi (pronounced chee) is a concept which underpins all of Chinese medicine. It is commonly translated as energy but it is actually much more than this: Qi can exist in numerous states and forms. We all know that the body contains energy, providing heat and fuel to different parts of the body. This energy flows though the body and links the organ networks. In simple conventional medicine terms energy is the metabolisation of proteins in the body and that without a clear flow of this energy to the organs of the body they will deteriorate and lead to illness.
Sen use Chinese medicine to balance your yin and yang, we are simultaneously aiming to ensure a smooth circulation and balance of Qi throughout your body and organ networks.
