Why Qi is Key

 Chinese medicine operates on the principle that disease results from disruption in the flow of Qi and imbalance in the forces of yin and yang. When we are healthy, an abundant supply of Qi flows through the body’s meridians – a network of invisible channels through the body. When our Qi is blocked or in short supply, the body fails to maintain harmony, balance and order, and disease or illness follows.

Are you stressed, overworking, eating badly or burning the proverbial candle at both ends? In addition to disease pathogens, weather and environmental conditions, common lifestyle factors and bad habits can also disturb your natural flow of Qi. TCM practitioners can diagnose disturbed Qi, resulting in  illness and disease.
