Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the world's oldest medical systems, originally from China, and still widely practised today. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic medical system which combines the use of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, nutrition, massage, and movement exercises (known as Tai Chi or Qi Gong) to bring the body into balance.

Whereas Western medicine looks closely at a symptom and tries to find an underlying cause, Traditional Chinese Medicine looks at the body as a whole. Each symptom is looked at in relationship to all other presenting symptoms. The goal of the TCM practitioner is to assess the entire constitution of the patient - considering both physiological and psychological aspects.


When  a Western doctor sees a distinct disease the Chinese physician sees a ‘pattern of disharmony’, which is disturbing the patient’s bodily balance. Searching for signs and symptoms a western doctor might never heed, the TCM practitioner prescribes a treatment that will

re-harmonise the patient.




Acupuncture is the insertion of hair-fine sterile disposable

stainless steel needles to gently stimulate special areas on

the body known as acupuncture points. In the East, Acupuncture     

has been documented as remarkably effective for a range of

conditions and Sue’s clients almost always also notice an

improvement in other health issues during a course of treatment.

Acupuncture is an important part of TCM. Over the past 2,500

years medical scholars in every age have contributed to the

development and refinement of the art of acupuncture in China.


Chinese Patent Herbs

Sue offers treatment with Chinese patent herbal medicine, usually prescribed in the form of pills. Sue uses high quality remedies. These


are used to help to revitalize the body. They support and enhance the effect of acupuncture on the body, particularly where there is long-term chronic illness.

Herbs are optional and only appropriate for certain conditions. They are particularly helpful when tonics to revitalise  the Qi and blood are required. The accumulative nature of herbal treatment enables it to optimise the benefits of acupuncture.


Some patent herbs are amazing. For instance the remedy  which acts in an anti-depressant fashion can

take effect within hours, transform symptoms within days and be no longer necessary after 3-6 weeks.






Scar tissue improvement (even post cellulitis), Wound healing,  Haematomas, Skin appearance



How Does It Work?

Photo Therapy involves the exposure to certain wavelengths of light.


The light is absorbed by the cells of the skin and blood. It works in several ways which have been   

demonstrated by electron microscopy but mainly by powering up the mitochondria in cells. The

mitochondria are like the cell’s battery pack. This ensures that each cell can function more effectively.

It also improves the efficiency of immune system cells such as white blood cells and mast cells. In this way the immune system can resolve infection and increase cell repair.


Research on Light Effects

   Light  delivered by Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are demonstrating very wide ranging and

   exciting benefits as documented in many medical journals in recent years. Some examples of

    their applications are:  Scar tissue -even old scars

                                           Wound healing -speeds healing and reduces infection

                                           Haematomas -large bruises following accident or operation

The Qi (Energy)

Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) is unknown in Western medicine, but in simple terms Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes that it is the vital force of the body. It keeps the blood circulating, warms the body and fights disease. It is Qi that is the essence of living creatures.  Qi flows through certain channels forming a network within the entire body linking all parts and functions together so they work as one unit. There are 12 main Qi channels, each connected to an internal organ and named after that organ, and they follow a set pathway in the body.

When a person is healthy TCM suggests that the Qi is moves smoothly through the channels, but if for some reason the flow is blocked, too weak or too strong then illness occurs. The aim of the practitioner is to correct the flow of Qi either by inserting fine needles into particular points on the channels  or using Tuina massage. In this way dramatic changes can occur in the mind or body. Alterations in Qi precede physical change, so Chinese Medicine can act preventatively by correcting the energy imbalance before a serious illness can occur. If a physical change has already occurred it can often be reversed by adjusting the Qi.







This concept may in time be fully understood by western science


There is substantial evidence from MRI studies that acupuncture points can stimulate brain responses and reduce pain. There is also ultrasound evidence that stimulation of acupuncture points can cause a response in  muscle fascia (muscle coating).
