The underlying philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine is that man/woman are perceived as multi-dimensional beings, functioning on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.
In order to achieve and maintain personal balance, one must cultivate harmony in all these areas.
Chinese Internal Arts were developed 1000’s of years ago specifically to teach us how to recognize and accept the inevitable challenges presented by the fundamental challenges of everyday life that may disrupt harmony, and teach us how to provide appropriate response. These Arts are taught with patience and spirit, varying degrees of depth are presented, dependent on your level of understanding and skill level.
