Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a comprehensive medical system that has been practised for thousands of years in China and other parts of East Asia. TCM views the body as a holistic system where the mind, body, and spirit are interconnected. At the core of TCM is the belief in the body's natural ability to heal itself and the importance of maintaining a balance between the body's internal systems. This balance is believed to be crucial for overall health and well-being and can be understood by looking at the energies of Yin and Yang. They are different from each other but in complete harmony and alignment. Even though Chinese Medicine has many treatment methods like acupuncture, massage (known as Tui Na) and exercises such as Qigong, the dietary part of it is highly important. Chinese Medicine doesn't recommend the same diet to everyone - two patients can have the same disease but they need a different diet in order to heal, because the root cause of the disease is different. Each patient will go through an analysis process to see where the imbalances between Yin & Yang in their body lie. After a diagnosis of your energy condition, you'll receive a plan of foods & herbs that are beneficial and non-beneficial for you. As soon as you know where your energy is out of balance, you will quickly start to understand your body much better. That will help and empower you to make better decisions for your future wellbeing. *** About Ariane: Originally from Germany, she worked in hospitality for a long time and studied Business Communication Management. But after struggling with Burnout and health issues that doctors couldn't really solve, she started to look for solutions in Chinese Medicine. She found out that Chinese Medicine is so much more than just acupuncture and herbs. In Chinese Medicine the food that we consume has a huge meaning and there is a complex system behind it. She started to change her diet according to the concept of Yin & Yang and her health problems disappeared after a while. She's also much fitter now and she lost some weight. She was so convinced of the healing powers of this method, that she became a Chinese Medicine Nutritionist herself.
