#var:page_name# cover

Have you ever walked past a Chinese medicine shop, with it's rows and rows of different herbs and wondered how they all work?

Have you seen a Chinese acupuncture chart with all the energetic meridians, and wondered how these lines and points on the body are connected, and help relieve pain and cure illness?

Chinese Medicine is a deep understanding of the human body and life itself with over 5000 years of history, all based on the fundamental principles of balance, Yin & Yang.

This includes the 5 elements, earth, metal, air, fire & water, the importance of 'qi' or 'chi' in the body, and the connection between our organs, emotions, and life itself.

Chinese & Eastern Medicine has been able to consistently help people be heal and be healthy by creating balance, rather than fighting or cutting things out of the body.

In this free talk & demonstration, Dr Ken S Kiang will be explaining and demonstrating in simple terms some of the core concepts of Chinese Medicine and how it can help all people be healthy, happier and more energised in a natural way.
