Chinese Medicine Brisbane

Experienced Chinese Herbalist Brisbane

Chinese Medicine encompasses a broad range of medical practices (such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and aromatherapy to name a few) sharing common theoretical concepts that were originally developed in China, based on traditions over 3000 years old. Chinese Medicine is a complete medical system that can diagnose, treat and prevent illness. TCM can remedy ailments and alter the state of mind, decrease recuperative time, increase immunity and enhance the capacity for pleasure, work, and recreation.

The treatments used, aim to adjust and harmonise the body and mind, this is achieved by regulating the Qi (energy), moisture and blood, allowing weak organs to be toned, congested channels to open, tightness to be released, excesses to be dispersed and agitation to be calmed.

Chinese Medicine or Chinese Herbalist?

Chinese herbs are simply a part of Chinese medicine. With the wider acceptance of Chinese medicine in the western world, we have seen an increase in pre-prepared Chinese herbs. So if you've heard the bad stories of foul-smelling herbal remedies and have been turned off trying, then worry no more. Many of the herbs our Chinese herbalist will use are in tablet form or similar. It is no different than taking modern medicine.

Chinese Herbalist

A Chinese herbalist will prepare a unique treatment for the client, after a discussion on lifestyle, medical history, and nutrition. Western Chinese herbalists use only whole or parts of plants in their preparations but in some TCM preparations, animal or mineral ingredients may be included. The end product may come in the form of teas, capsules or tablets, essential oils (aromatherapy) or various other herbal preparations, our Chinese herbalist will discuss the best options with you.

One of the major benefits of medicines made from herbs is the marked improvement in health, without the risk of side effects that are commonly found in drug-based medications.

In addition to our practitioners whose primary focus is on the above TCM modalities, we also use food therapy, nutritional supplements, lifestyle advice and exercise therapy as an adjunct to Chinese medicine treatments.
