This e-booklet provides a brief introduction to the Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This 3000 year old philosophy is the basis for all that we do at ChiBall.
It provides a breif explanation of the four main concepts within traditional Chinese medicine that practitioners believe explain all aspects of life:
- Chi: Chi is our vital energy.
- Yin and Yang: Yin and Yang are complementary opposite states of energy that are in constant motion, striving to achieve balance in all things.
- The Meridians: The meridians are invisible pathways within the body through which our Chi flows to our internal organs.
- The Five Elements of Nature: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water
Our emotional state, diet and lifestyle are all-important factors that build our distinctive picture of health. By studying these unique characteristics and associations, a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine can interpret our individual disharmonies, creating a road map which leads to a healthy state of balance.
