Chinese medicine is a system of medicine that has been in use for well over 3000 years. It was largely realized through deep observation of the natural world. As the movements and interrelationships within nature became realized so did these same movements and interrelationships within the human being. Chinese medicine truly teaches us, as Chinese medicine practitioners, to understand the human being as an interconnected whole.
Through the lens of Chinese medicine it is possible to understand how seemingly separate aspects of the human being relate. It is also possible to understand how seemingly separate symptoms are part of the same disharmony. Chinese medicine enables us to not merely stop at symptom management, but to begin to understand why it is that such symptoms are present.
And perhaps most importantly, Chinese Medicine as practiced at Confluence offers hope where there was none and solutions where there used to be only roadblocks. Our medicine is effective, grounded, compassionate, and humane. We hope to see you soon!
