You might be noticing more signs of Chinese Medicine entering our Western cultural healthcare settings as seeing athletes with purple circles on their skin from cupping are more and more prevalent on TV sports and in the media in general. Maybe you've have already tried it or know someone who swears by acupuncture for their back pain or herbal teas for colds. More and more, people use practices like these from Traditional Chinese Medicine to not only fight disease, but also prevent it.
According to WebMD, "Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient system of health and wellness that’s been used in China for thousands of years. Western medicine focuses mainly on treating disease but TCM looks at your entire well-being."
Which is why Chinese Medicine and Spiritual Direction is the first step in the healing protocol of our Medicine Wheel. Chinese Medicine is rooted in ancient wisdom and is based on balance, harmony, and energy flow. When you feel stressed, out of balance, have pain that is your body giving you signals to act. The aim is not to place band-aids on the wound but get to the root cause. The Aspect of Spiritual Well-being is to step into your health, seek care, be inspired, identify purpose and initiate the process of creating a balanced SELF.
When your internal energy is flowing, when you gain the initial start to find balance in your life, everything else can falls into place.
