The Philosophy Behind Chinese Medicine Practice
When they think about acupuncture, most individuals mentally conjure up a diversity of concepts and definitions that are included in the practice. When applied to helping with ailments and to healing, Chinese medicine is limited by a specific set of procedure or principles. There are in fact, certain methods that are used within Chinese medicine practice that are applicable in any area.
Chinese medicine, during its millennia of evolution, has integrated an ever increasing array of ideologies and methods that can assist in the enhancement of one’s health. Chinese medicine is essentially a philosophy that guides one to a holistic style of living. Its practice involves the spiritual and emotional aspects of a person that is as equally considered as the physical aspect of his/her health and bringing these three aspects to peak levels leading to optimal health. The practitioner finds indication of disharmony to try to prevent, understand, and prevent the specific disease and/or illness.
Using principles of natural law, this type of alternative medicine and other holistic methods can accelerate and enhance the healing process. A person’s body, according to Chinese medicine, is inversely proportional to the laws of the universe. Chinese medicine practitioners consider these two to be a reflection of each other and because of these every process within the Universe as well as the Universe itself, is in a constant process of balancing itself. Regardless of what Chinese medicine mode of treatment you are considering (Qi gong, Chinese herbs, or acupuncture, for example), you can be sure that natural law will be the basis for understanding how your body works.
Chinese medicine then moves into procedures concerning energy once the holistic lifestyle of the person and an understanding of natural law has been considered. This type of healing tradition, at all degrees, is one of the most important universal laws that can be applied. It is hypothesized within this practice that there are certain energies that are linked and when unified these energies maintain their flow in a natural and complete way. This is principle behind Chinese medicine.
Following a balanced lifestyle in which the correct type of energy flows appropriately is the key to healthy living and general well-being. Your well –being and health is not only enhanced with Chinese medicine, it also enhances all areas of your life.
