Classical Chinese Medicine is the "original- holistic" system of healthcare that is in accordance with the classical traditions of Chinese philosophy, arts and sciences.
Classical Chinese Medicine is a coherent, unique and holistic way of looking at health and disease that developed over thousands of years in China. It can be used as an alternative, an adjunct or a complement to other health care practices.
Classical Chinese Medicine provides an energetic systems-based description of the person, where the biological, sociological, emotional and psycho- spiritual aspects are seen as interconnected and inseparable.
The concept of health in Classical Chinese Medicine is based on energetic balance (Yin/Yang) resulting from harmony of all systems, all functions and all relationships, internal and external.
Chinese Medicine diagnoses are described as "Patterns of Disharmony", as distinct from the diagnosis of organic pathologies (as is the case of modern medicine). Patterns of disharmony are energetic descriptions of the unique ways in which a person is losing or has lost their ability to maintain balance (homeostasis).
Classical Chinese Medicine supports a persons innate healing intelligence, so that they regain and maintain dynamic homeostasis. This helps a person to effectively adapt to, and remain centred in their journey of Life.
