Tibetan Medicine

The Tibetan Medicine appears more than four thousand years ago. This is a system of practical knowledge about the individual, about the relationship between the body, the soul and the mind. The theoretical visions of Tibetan Medicine are based on the study of universal principles of Yin-Yang. In the real world all provides a unique system of these two opposites: heat and cold, full and empty, day and night, etc. The energies Yin and Yang form the regulatory systems in the body, the beginning of life (Dosha). The balance and the harmonious report are determined by the human state and health, functions of internal organs and the mind. It is important to understand the concept of balance – “golden middle”. The health is seen as a balance of three vital principles.

 

The specialists of Tibetan Medicine consider that there are no separately diseases of the patient. Identifying the true causes of disease, the physician connects them to a specific person, its character, its life style and alimentation.

 

A physician practicing Tibetan Medicine treats the people, but not the disease, which represents a consequence of disorders in the body systems. Using simple diagnostic techniques such as examination and questions, examination of tongue and eyes, pulse diagnosis, the doctor determines the nature of the disease and its cause. The treatment begins with the restoring of vital energy balance. It includes four components:

 

  • Recommendations on Nutrition (depending on the constitution of man)
  • Phytotherapy (Tibetan herbals)
  • Spot massage (acupressure)
  • Acupuncture (reflexotherapy)
  • Vacuum Massage (massage with cupping-glass, vacuum therapy)
  • Auriculotherapy
  • Stone therapy
  • Heating (moxotherapy, heating with sagebrush cigars)
  • Hirudotherapy.

Chinese Medicine

The purpose of Chinese medicine is to restore the harmonious integrity of the human body and its energy.

 

The history of Chinese medicine, according to various estimations reaches 3-4 thousand years. The theoretical premise for its formation is the philosophy of Taoism. The borrowed concept from Taoists of Yin and Yang is essential for Chinese medicine.

 

The organs, systems and human functions are also divided into Yin and Yang. All dense parenchymal (internal) organs belong to Yin. The hollow organs relate to Yang. The changes and interaction of phenomenons and objects are described by the concept of Wu Xing

Each organ, or more accurate functional system, has a canal that connects it with other and with the outside world, yet the human body is considered as a whole, being in inseparable connection with all organs, systems and external environment.

Each canal has a certain number of points. The biological active points (acupuncture points) – are the hole through which is made the exchange of information and energy between the internal environment of an organism and the outside world. With these points gets the disease but with the therapeutic effect on these points the person can be cured.

Chinese pharmacology is based on the same concept of Yin-Yang, but the medicines are classified according to the power of energy influence on certain or another particular organ.

 

When the doctor practicing Chinese medicine examines the patient and prescribes the patient’s treatment he takes into account all the nuances of the patient’s body, climatic conditions, lifestyle, worldview and chooses the appropriate time for the therapeutic effect.

  • Acupuncture (needles reflexotherapy)

  • Acupressure
  • Auriculotherapy
  • Heating (moxotherapy, heating with sagebrush cigars)
