Eastern Healing or Traditional Chinese medicine
At A Healer’s Hand we provide "Eastern Healing" utilizing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), it is the oldest continually practiced health-care system in the world. TCM is used by 25% of the world’s population, and is the primary form of medicine in many Asian countries. TCM does not diagnose diseases. It identifies patterns of imbalance in the body. Treatments are designed to restore balance in the body, which allows the body to heal itself. TCM is a holistic healthcare system that incorporates all aspects of a person’s health. The body, mind, and spirit are evaluated together when determining the patterns of imbalance. Any disharmony within the body, mind, or spirit can affect the other.
Chinese herbal formulas are individually designed to bring the body into balance and to complement and reinforce the acupuncture. Most formulas use between 8 and 15 medicinal substances to harmonize, nourish, and strengthen the body. Because the ingredients are carefully chosen, their synergistic effects are far greater than commonly used single western herbs.
