Why Choose Us...

 

Our Philosophy

Much of the philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine derives from the same philosophy that informs Taoist and Buddhist thought. It reflects the classical Chinese belief that the life and activity of individual human beings have an intimate relationship with the environment on all levels.  This philosophy embraces the human spirit and the unique balance within each individual.  By understanding the intimate connection between body, mind, spirit and environment, we are able to gently guide the energy that allows the body to heal.

We view the body as organ systems and we have a holistic approach to treatment.  We believe the  body is a complete energetic system with the innate knowledge to heal.  By utilising the various modalities Traditional Chinese Medicine has to offer, we are able to bring the body back into a state of balance.

We believe healing is innate in everyone.  It is our intention to use this power to enhance the healing process.
