Do you think Chinese medicine would have survived for more than 3,000 years, its practice spreading all over the world, if it weren’t a potent, total, proven, and truly holistic system of medicine?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is actually rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism* and dates back more than 2,500 years. TCM is a functional, “flesh and bones” medicine based on the same fundamental physiology as Western medicine. You don't have to be a Doctor of Oriental Medicine or licensed acupuncturist to practice its principles and reap many rewards from its practice. Its principles are practiced in beauty salons, skincare institutes, spas, and wellness centers all over the globe, especially where PHYTO5® skincare is offered.
Chinese medicine was passed down through the centuries by some of the most exquisite learned minds of China. Chinese medicine assisted emperors and the royal courts to live well into their 90s, even remaining fertile into their 80s at a time when the average life expectancy in the West was 30 years.
Do a Google search for "five elements skincare" and discover that PHYTO5® and its “energetic skincare” method is at the forefront of the industry because it offers energetic principles of both TCM and Ayurveda** and with superior results. Balanced vital energy achieved by TCM is a prerequisite of real health and when you feel better, you also look better!
Distinctions of Chinese Medicine Practice and Philosophy:
- Your physician spends more time interviewing and examining you.
- Your physician takes factors over and above your physical health into account.
- The therapies are non-invasive.
- The philosophy also takes the environment into account including the seasons and the elements comprising the earth.
- The practice realizes that the body is not just matter but 50% matter and 50% vital energy and therefore carefully considers your body's energy envelope and energy pathways when providing treatments.
- Lifestyle in alignment with the five phases (seasons) is a core tenet because it brings harmony to the body, the mind and the spirit.
*Philosophical Taoism emphasizes inner contemplation and mystical union with nature; wisdom, learning, and purposeful action should be abandoned in favor of simplicity and wu-wei (non-action, or letting things take their natural course).
**Literally meaning 'life science,' Ayurveda is the traditional Hindu system of medicine which is based on the idea of balance in bodily systems and utilizes diet, herbal treatments, and yogic breathing as major tenets of its system.
