The mind-body harmony approach
Emotion is a form of energy and it can either facilitate our health or enhance the development of diseases. Ancient Chinese discovered that the heart governs all emotions. During times of emotional pain or distress, the heart can be really hurt or injured; this is where the words “heartache” and “heartbreak” come from. Each individual emotion relates to a particular organ according to the 5-element cycle. Therefore, physical and emotional conditions are interrelated. And that is why acupuncture and Chinese medicine treatment choose to assist with depression by managing the underlying pain.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine treatment are commonly used in taking care of the mental health. We look at the causes of the disease, not just the symptoms. We treat the body and mind at the same time to achieve balance. Mental health can also be improved by boosting up the sense of well-being, confidence and self-esteem.
