A and H treatment roomOne of the main differences between Chinese medicine and Western medicine is that the Chinese medicine practitioner treats people rather than diseases. It is more concerned with the overall aspect of the patient’s health and the achievement of internal harmony and balance, not only a particular set of symptoms. Your practitioner will ask ‘Can Chinese medicine help this person?’ rather than ‘Can Chinese medicine help this ill-ness?’

Chinese medicine recognizes that although an illness has the same name it can arise from many different causes. For example, one person’s headache might come from too much Yang Qi in the Liver and someone else’s from the Kidney Qi being deficient. Different people’s complaints can have many different causes.

Treating Degenerative Conditions

If a patient has a chronic and degenerative condition such as multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy or Parkinson’s disease, their practitioner might tell them what she or he thinks treatment could achieve. Sometimes, although treatment may not give a complete cure, it can help a patient to feel more comfortable and to cope better with the complaint.

How does your practitioner choose treatments?

During this first consultation, your practitioner will ask you lots of questions about yourself. These questions involve such things as your sleep, appetite, bowel movement, perspiration and what you like or dislike. Although these may seem irrelevant, they enable your practitioner to make a holistic and individual diagnosis of you.

As well as asking you these questions, your practitioner will carry out a physical examination. During this, she or he will feel your pulses and look at your tongue.

The practitioner will be diagnosing the underlying cause of your problem. Your treatments, which depend on your complaints, the age and the overall health are made to measure especially for you.
