Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic medical system that has been practiced for more than five thousand years. At the heart of TCM is the focus of treating the root cause of disease rather than the symptoms. The pattern in which the symptoms present will allow the practitioner to deeply understand how the disease manifested. By viewing every aspect of a person’s body, mind, spirit, emotions and lifestyle, this will allow the patient to become aware of the root cause of disease and achieve a balance in their life through simple and natural preventative methods. Pain and illnesses are a result of Qi (vital energy) being disrupted through physical and emotional trauma, stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, overexertion, or seasonal changes. As long as Qi flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained. The use of Acupuncture can correct such disruption by adjusting the flow of energy and remove blockages in the body.
Why do I need TCM when conventional medicine is already available to all of us?
The reason for this is that many diseases and ailments that cannot be helped successfully by Conventional Medicine can be treated effectively by Traditional Medicines, in this case, TCM.
At Simple Cures we believe that utilizing anything that is beneficial is the key, regardless of what medical model it derives from. By combining the best therapies that help facilitate your wellness we are able to accomplish this restoration of health; this is always our ultimate goal.
Holistic Medicine is now flourishing for this very reason; people are realizing that natural medicine is their best tool for managing and treating the chronic diseases that are afflicting them. Some of the apparent limitations of conventional medicine are that it is fundamentally surgical and pharmaceutical in nature, which can be invasive. People are hoping to heal themselves naturally without dependence upon such procedures unless absolutely necessary. The body's self-healing ability can be better understood if one takes into account the fact that homeostasis, or biological balance, is the main characteristic of any healthy system. So by restoring balance to the physiology, we allow the innate healing mechanisms to do its job.
We treat clients by taking into consideration all aspects, this includes, mental, physical, and emotional factors and tailor specific and individualized treatment protocols specific for them.
