“In everything I do, I believe Chinese Medicine is the most effective framework to understand the intricate inter-relationship between the body, mind and soul. It has the power to treat these intricate inter-relationships that exist, effecting change in our body entire.
I believe the the power to treat these intricate relationships lies beyond just the physical, but to understand how our mental health (including habits, emotions, and psychological elements like grit, will power, toughness and resilience), lifestyle choices and physical condition interact. These are inseparable, and Chinese medicine provides a beautiful, unique, time-tested framework for the understanding and treatment of our body.
Without understanding, i.e. correct diagnosis, there cannot be effective treatment.
Only a trained practitioner of Chinese medicine can truly utilise the system of Chinese medicine to provide a correct diagnosis.” Marie Hopkinson
