TCM as preventative medicine
TCM at work
Chinese medicine uses the body’s energetic framework to balance the flow of Qi (vital energy, pronounced chee) in the body. If Qi is deficient, excess, stagnant or scattered, disease often follows. The subtlety of the medicine often allows it to prevent a trend towards illness while remaining a powerful tool against disease.
TCM for a lifetime
Living well and staying healthy doesn’t just benefit the you of today. Think of your health like you do your retirement account. If you don’t take care of it now, you won’t be able to reap the benefits later. Maintaining good health now, which is what Traditional Chinese Medicine does best, allows you to live well today and sets you up for a more healthy future and “retirement.” Just like your retirement account, the little bit that you steadily invest in your health now will reap rewards in the future that far outweigh your initial investment.
