The root of Chinese Medicine treatment is embedded in the concept of bringing the body back into homeostasis. Returning well being and vitality naturally. Our focus is to clear energetic blockages and nourish the body, mind and soul.
At Quiescence the tools of our trade are acupuncture, herbal medicine, lifestyle changes and massage.
We have come to realize that people seek us out for an alternative way to treat and understand the body. Whether they are looking for help with conceiving, are in pain or are just feeling a bit unwell, the overwhelming reason that people come to us is for holistic, supportive and respectful treatment.
The beauty of Chinese Medicine treatment lies in the personalized approach to everything.
There is a saying in Chinese Medicine “same disease different treatment, different disease same treatment”. Now this may not make much sense until we realize that Chinese Medicine looks deeper than just a disease diagnosis. It looks at what the underlying factors are that are contributing to that disease in an individual. For example two people are struggling with sleep could have very different underlying factors. This means their treatments would be quite different. On the other hand two people with similar underlying factors can present with quite different problems. While their problems may seem to have nothing in common it’s likely their treatments will still be quite similar. Taking this approach means that you are likely to get to the root of the problem and receive longer lasting results.
As you can imagine it takes a lot of knowledge and skill be able to see clearly what is going on with each individual. This is why we spend so much time getting to know you (and why we are continually studying). As you progress and your body changes the treatments will change bringing you closer to your health goals.
As one of our lovely patients recently observed ‘this really is the ultimate in personalized medicine’.
