What Our Patients Are Saying
I have been going to Jinna for over 25 years. Jinna is very knowledgeable and knows exactly what my issues are and treats me as needed. She is very observant about your body posture and movement as soon as you walk in the door. I highly recommend Shoreside Wellness Centre. The staff is friendly and professional.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Your first treatment will consist of 90 minutes, with approximately 30 minutes set aside for a health assessment, and the remaining time for treatment.
The health assessment will consist of going through a health history form, where general questions about your health are asked, and the practitioner will proceed with a Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnostic (checking tongue, pulse, eyes, etc).
Your practitioner will then proceed with a personalized treatment based on your needs, and may even prescribe natural herbs to supplement depending on your health goals.
What is Qi?
The philosophy of Qi permeates throughout all of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is what all of Chinese Medicine is in accordance with. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi, (pronounced 'chi') is the universal life force, that embraces all manifestations of energy from the material (physical objects, animate and inanimate) to the immaterial (light, movement, heat, thought, emotions). Qi is said to be in a continuous flux that transforms endlessly from one aspect to another. It is neither created or destroyed, it simply changes its manifestation.
In order to fully understand the various manifestations of Qi, the concept of Yin and Yang must also be understood in this context.
In the Chinese Medicine philosophy, Yin and Yang are terms used to describe relative opposite qualities of Qi. Yin refers to aspects of Qi that are relatively material, solid, heavy, cold, moist, cooling, dark, passive. Yang refers to aspects of Qi that are relatively immaterial, expanding, hollow, light, hot, dry, bright, aggressive and active.
Neither is greater/better/worse than the other. Both aspects, in harmony, equally balance each other within the body. Illness, pain, or other conditions are believed to be a consequence when either aspect is out of balance.
Chinese Medical Practitioners utilize this knowledge of Qi as well as 14 meridians and the approximate 361 acupressure points on the body to administer treatments such as Acupuncture, Tui Na, Cupping, just to name a few. Many practitioners will also prescribe natural herbal medication to balance these energies in the body.
