The body, the mind, the emotions and their relationship to the world are regarded as the sources of both wellness and disease in Chinese medicine. By not just relying on pills and understanding the body as wise, and symptoms as teachers, we can change the state of our relationship to disease.
As a clinician, I use the philosophy of Classical Chinese medicine to help empower individuals and organizations to learn personal wellness responsibility. And I can provide these tools in one-on-one appointments or in group lectures. Teachings include sensible wellness practices like awareness training in the comings and goings of pain and ease.
Self care education in home moxibustion, acupressure, gua-sha, breathing exercises, movement exercises, mindfulness, nutrition and lifestyle changes serve to decrease the severity and frequency of your symptoms.
