For the month of June, I'm offering a FREE Health Assessment to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee! We'll look at stress, happiness and quality of sleep, then delve deeper into any health issues you may be experiencing - physical, mental, emotional or at a soul level.
Perhaps you know someone with a persistent health issue they just can't seem to get rid of? Or would like to use a traditional, holistic approach to support a Western Medicine intervention?
A Traditional Chinese Medicine Approach
I use a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach to clarify which organ energy channels are out of balance; this diagnostic tool comprises 8 Principles and Five Elements.
The aim of the Five Element approach is for you to feel not just physiologically or physically better, but emotionally better too. It’s all about coming back into balance, and feeling like you again.
A lot of people don’t realise how stressed they are, until after a session when they feel a whole lot better.
Do you have to believe in it for it to work?
No, it is not a belief system. This is a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach, which is 5000 years old in knowledge and experience (compared to approx 180 years of Western medicine).
Tell me more about the 8 Principles and Five Element Approach
The 8 Principles consist of Cold/Heat, Deficiency/Excess, Yin/Yang and Internal/External; as a TCM Practitioner, it’s my role to ascertain the bigger picture of you (your personality and true nature) and your health and I use the 8 principles to ascertain the status quo.
When you’re out of balance, you don’t feel so good and if you stay that way for a while, your health starts to suffer.
When you’re born, everyone consists of Five Elements, which are Fire, Earth, Water, Metal and Wood. Each of these is associated with 2-4 organs and their energy channels. Depending on who you are, one of those Elements is always slightly out of kilter from the rest. That’s where your physiological, psychological and emotional attributes come from. As a TCM Practitioner, I can bring you back into balance using a variety of modalities, such as breath work, yoga, meditation, massage, acupressure and myofascial release.
Quite often, I find that people present with many different symptoms but most of them are interrelated and correlate with a specific Element. In this way, by regulating your nervous system and bringing the Element back into balance, many other symptoms fade away. For example, the Metal Element is associated with the emotion of grief, and also has connections to the breath and skin. Or perhaps, the Heart Element is out of balance, resulting in insomnia, anxiety and palpitations.
If you have any questions, or would like to take advantage of the Jubilee Offer of a Free Health Assessment, do get in touch. I’d love to talk to you.
