Mental Health

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.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine treatment are very effective 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. We can also improve the mental health by boosting up the sense of well-being, confidence and self-esteem.
