Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Richard Abbott "Chinese Medicine is holistic and is about balance. It's based on a belief that we are in a universe in which everything is interconnected. Every part of the body is connected to every other part of the body. The mind and body are interconnected and operate as one system. The organs and organ systems are interconnected and work together as one and all these smooth flowing energetic interconnections help keep the body in balance. Therefore balance is the key to health."
