At the heart of Oriental Medicine is the understanding that harmonious interactions between and within the body’s systems reflect a state of health. Dis-ease or illness arises when the ordered functioning of the systems is disrupted by injury, stress, environmental factors or strong emotions. Oriental Medicine defines illness as an imbalance which may be corrected by applying a range of therapeutic techniques to alleviate symptoms and support the body to regain its healthy balance. By incorporating therapeutic interventions such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and lifestyle information including diet, remedial and stress management tools, Christine enhances your innate healing capacity to manage your health and well-being.
A personalised treatment corrects the imbalances and enables the body to function more efficiently. Acupuncture and Shiatsu Therapy aid the body to restore its core vitality by promoting the smooth and unimpeded flow of vital energy known as Ki in Japanese or Qi (pronounced chi) in Chinese through the organs and tissues. The techniques selected for each treatment depend on the constitution of the receiver and the nature of the presenting symptoms.
