CHINESE MEDICINE MELBOURNE

Create a state of balance and improve your wellbeing

The principles of traditional Chinese medicine are based on the generation of life-energy forces, also known as ‘qi’, which circulate around the body via an intricate web of energy pathways known as meridians.

When these pathways are not functioning properly, due to illness, poor diet or emotional stress, the flow of qi can weaken or become blocked. The blockages may then lead to malfunctioning organs, which in turn leads to further illness.

By freeing up the energy pathways, we can effectively restore the body to a state of balance and improved well-being—and effectively heal common symptoms such as high blood pressure, body pain, and stress.
