Traditional Chinese Medicine
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine all ailments begin with imbalance, so to RE-BALANCE is a key - by stimulating the body's own systems to heal itself for a more sustainable form of natural healing. This can reduce the need for long term medication for both physical and mental-emotional health conditions. Jenny is passionate about helping people to understand and achieve the best health outcomes naturally.
At Gore we use Evidence Based Medicine where this is available and integrates it with the rich traditional knowledge and experience of TCM to find the right treatment for each individual Patient.
Traditional Chinese Medicine encompasses acupuncture, moxibustion (burning a herb above the skin to apply heat to acupuncture points), Chinese herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese therapeutic massage), dietary therapy, and tai chi and qi gong (practices that combine specific movements or postures, coordinated breathing, and mental focus). TCM is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism and dates back more than 2,500 years. TCM's view of the body is mainly concerned with the identification of functional entities which regulate digestion, breathing, aging etc. Health is a harmonious interaction of these entities and the outside world, disease is disharmony in interaction. TCM diagnosis traces symptoms to patterns of an underlying disharmony, by measuring the pulse, inspecting the tongue, skin, and eyes, and looking at the eating and sleeping habits of the person as well as exploring more specific symptom related history.
Traditional Chinese medicine originated in ancient China and has evolved over thousands of years. TCM practitioners use herbal medicines, acupuncture and various mind and body practices, treat or prevent health problems.
