Oriental Medicine

It is a challenging to know where to begin explaining Oriental Medicine because we, as practitioners, are looking at the multidimensional dynamic at play within the body, that is not linear, nor is it confined to one layer.
The conceptual language is simultaneously descriptive and heuristic. There are distinct and complementary categories for the underlying processes such as the body constituents: qi-energy, blood, fluids, the organ networks-liver, heart, spleen, lung, kidney, eight parameters: yin-yang, cold-heat, depletion-excess, interior - exterior, five phases, wood, fire, earth, metal, and water, and more. Each of these means of describing and interpreting the data leads to a deeper insight into the nature of the organism and its unique modus operandi.
