What can Chinese medicine do for you?
The short answer is, more than you might imagine.
It’s less concerned with how long we live, but how well we live. Millions of us suffer from conditions such as stress, pain, low energy, headaches, anxiety, poor skin, low fertility, bad digestion and lack of sleep, which means we’re not operating anywhere near our best. And given the relentless nature of modern life, we need simple, achievable solutions to support our body and immediately improve our well-being. Chinese medicine offers just that.
Contrary to popular belief, Chinese medicine is far more than just acupuncture and herbs. There’s also a lesser known system for health and longevity called yang sheng, which literally means ‘nurturing life.’ Simple techniques are designed to relax the body, enable free-flow of circulation and assist detoxification by supporting the lymphatic system.
Disease often begins with a disruption of energy flow and it’s only when we are out of balance that illness occurs. And if we treat those energetic imbalances early enough, we can limit the chance of physical symptoms developing. Signs to look out for are, for example, your sleep. Are you sleeping well? If you are out of balance, you’ll likely be experiencing one or more of the issues below.
You may be a step further on from this and already suffering from illness. I’m all for Western medicine – and I’m in no way saying that yang sheng can cure all disease. But, whilst you are under Western medical supervision, and no matter your symptoms, there are simple steps you can take to help your general balance and support yourself in the meantime. Chinese medicine is brilliant. It’s so powerful that in as little as one-minute a day you can improve stress levels, boost your immune system and vitality, improve sleep, looks, mood, lose weight and protect yourself against more serious illness in later years. It’s a simple, yet profound, approach to mastering our health physically, emotionally and energetically – an incredible health legacy has existed for thousands of years and treated billions of people. The best bit of all is that it can be easily incorporated into the relentless pace of our modern lives.
By engaging with the methods of self-care we’ll teach you in this workshop, we’ll help you with everyday issues. Suddenly the benchmark for good health is not just how long we might live for, but how well. Our yang sheng workshop distils this remarkable Chinese legacy to unlock optimal physical and mental health. It combines product, technique and wisdom into one-minute rituals.
