I am from the East, I am a General Oriental Practitioner.
I studied in the East and in Ireland, I have the following qualifications:
Diploma in Anatomy and Physiology Diploma in Oriental Medicine Diploma in Sports Injuries & Physical Exercise Certificate in Western Clinical Medicine Instructor in Kundalini Yoga NLP Practitioner Hypnotherapist Reiki Master
I run a very busy practice in Waterford and Templemore because I look at things in a different way and treat them from an Oriental point of view which is completely different.
In Eastern practices, a diagnosis is made based on three main factors:
1. Structural: Posture and the shape of the spine (the spine is d the body’s scaffolding).
2. Lung capacity: The maximum amount of air a person can expel from the lungs after a maximum inhalation. (Breathing should be done naturally through the nose long/slowly and out through the nose a little faster to expel the carbon dioxide).
3. Emotional State: When a person is emotionally imbalanced the bodily structure and function are affected. This then manifests in different body symptoms.
Example: Fear and panic manifests in the kidney’s – When a person is going for an interview or an exam the fear and panic causes the person to urinate more frequently than normal, sometimes causing kidney infection and/or dehydration. In conventional medicine an X-ray will not show fear or panic.
In the East-West Clinic, a diagnosis is made by checking the client’s tongue and pulse. When the diagnosis is complete the client, in most cases, will not have to tell any medical history and is amazed by what has been identified. I treat the root cause of the ailments/conditions with acupuncture, breathing and physical exercises.
