Our bodies are inextricably linked to our thoughts and feelings. How many of us experience daily stomach pain or headaches caused by intense stress and consequently create a bad mood?
However, when an problem turns into a chronic one, it can be difficult to identify its cause. When people are in pain, physical or emotional, it is rare for them to have the clarity, to identify the cause, and this is where we can help you! Our expertise combined with a neutral point of view makes the difference.
Our philosophy is that we can help you heal yourself, but we can’t do it for you. Once the cause of the problem is identified, the treatment process involves commitment from you towards the desired goal; many times changes are required (i.e. in diet, habits, etc.) in lifestyle and behavior, which is the patient’s choice whether to carry out or not.
An ancient Chinese saying reads: “Same Ben, different Biao. Different Ben, same Biao.” Ben is the root/cause of the disorder, while Biao is its manifestation.
So, even if a symptom is common, its cause can be as unique as you, which is why we focus mainly on the interaction between our mind and emotions, with our body.
