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
take effect within hours, transform symptoms within days and be no longer necessary
after 3-6 weeks.
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
mitochondria are like the cell’s battery pack. This ensures that each cell can function
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
Research on Light Effects
Light delivered by Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are demonstrating very wide
exciting benefits as documented in many medical journals in recent years. Some
their applications are: Scar tissue -even old scars
Wound healing -speeds healing and reduces
Haematomas -large bruises following accident

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

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