What is Classical Chinese Medicine?

Classical Chinese Medicine encompasses Classical styles of Acupuncture, Herbs, Essential Oils, Nutrition and Gemstones. Each of these modalities can be used alone to treat a patient, or combined for a profound integrative effect.

Diet and nutrition are the pillars of Classical Chinese Medicine. No matter what treatment you receive, your health can only be sustained through minding your intake of food. Since each person is different, dietary recommendations must be tailored to each individual in order to receive its medicinal benefits. 

Essential Oils are a potent form of herbal medicine because essential oils contain the essence of the plant which resonates directly with the essence of the human body.  

‘Essence’ in Chinese Medicine, also referred to as the ‘Jing’, corresponds to the body’s deepest energetic level; the Constitutional Energetics. In scientific terms, Essence or Jing relates to the body’s genetic material and the DNA that controls regeneration and aging.

Essential Oil Therapy is ideal for addressing emotional and mental imbalances because they directly transmit through the olfactory system to impact the limbic brain where traumatic memories are stored.

According to Ge Hong, one of the honorable early Chinese alchemists, gems and stones are the most potent form of herbal medicine since they don't degenerate like plant and animal herbal sources. They therefore provide a more permanent form of healing.

Essential oils and gemstones allow patients to do home care so they can be directly involved in their healing process. They are exciting approaches that powerfully and safely treat both acute and chronic conditions.

What is Classical Chinese Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient medical modality that dates back as far as 4,000 years. It involves the treatment of specific points along meridians in order to rebalance the Qi, or energy, and blood flow through the body and in the internal organs.

Classical Acupuncture is based on the original practices of this healing art form and differs greatly from today's modernized acupuncture practiced known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which has become standardized in China and most acupuncture schools in the U.S. TCM focuses on acupuncture point functions to alleviate symptoms and as a result  practitioners of this approach rely more on herbal medicine to help heal their patients on a deeper level. 

Classical Acupuncture on the other hand is based on the principles of Meridian Energetics and takes a more holistic approach to balancing the body.

It can be used as a standalone system or as a complement to other forms of healthcare to get to the root imbalances causing symptoms. 

Classical Acupuncture can treat a wide array of illnesses from pain and colds to autoimmune and gynecological disorders. The use of these treatments is tailored to each individual's needs and will leave you to feel strong, calm, and balanced.
