Our work philosophy
Site last published: 12/26/17

TCM revolves around rebalancing the patient’s energy, creating a harmonious state with both their inner selves and their surroundings. Therefore, this approach, based on the way life itself works, requires the patient to be an active partner in their healing process.

The job of the practitioner is to support the patient in addressing the root causes of their ill health, allowing the patient to be in control of his or her own health at all times.

This new awareness incites the patient to reassess or to learn more about the body's own health-maintenance mechanism, such as: good eating habits, good breathing techniques, work-life balance, taking part in some sort of soft exercise such as yoga, tai-chi, qigong… and more importantly, something which we consider fundamental; reassessing the way we live our lives.

The practitioner cannot overlook one of the central causes of illness: our lifestyle.

If the patient is willing to change certain aspects of their daily life, the healer may ask, what we consider to be, a few very important questions, for example:

- Personal information: Are your thoughts, feelings and actions in line with one another? Do you usually say what you think? How much importance do you give to what people say? What is your priority; to fulfil your calling in life or to have materialistic goods?

- Relationships: Do you form loving relationships with the people you care for, helping them to grow and develop their full potential? To what extent can your feelings become possessive or overly attached? How do you live out your sexuality?

- Work: Do you get fulfillment from your work? Or is it just a means of earning money and paying the bills? Could this situation make you feel unwell?

- Human relations? How do you put respect, trust and solidarity into practice?

- Artistic activities: How do you relate to beauty? Do you practice an art?

And all this is achieved whilst ensuring TCM is an ever more powerful healing tool for people in times of ill health, where the work of the practitioner becomes progressively redundant as the patient’s health improves.
