Modern oriental medicine is based on an holistic view of mind, body and spirit, helping to accelerate the natural healing power inherent in the human body. It involves a highly individualised approach to arrive at a unique treatment plan optimised for healing each individual patient. The main difference to
conventional medicine is the same disease will have different treatments and different diseases can have the same treatment. With
conventional medicine the same disease is treated with the same treatment and not tailored to the individual person. Traditional Chinese medicine is the most developed and proven system of oriental medicine and as the causes of illness that effect mankind have evolved this ancient medical system has undergone continual development for over 4000 years . Chinese medicine is a sophisticated science and is the oldest professional practiced form of medicine in the world and has academic literature dating back almost 2,500 years.
Health is more than just the absence of disease and Chinese medicine has the
unique capability of harmonising and enhancing our capacity for enjoyment,
fulfilment, well-being and happiness. Many people choose to use Chinese Medicine
as a preventative treatment to maintain good health, as well as correcting ill
health. The specific type of Chinese medicine practiced at the Women's Natural
Health Practice is "Modern Chinese Medicine" which is much closer to
conventional medicine than the classical Chinese medicine, making use of state-of-the -art technology to assist in diagnosis, whilst treating in the traditional natural ways.
