"The Law of Yin and Yang is the natural order of the universe, the foundation of all things, mother of all changes, the root of life and death"

The Yellow Emperor's Classic Of Medicine (215-282 CE)

Traditional Chinese Medicine commonly called TCM is a style of traditional Asian medicine informed by modern medicine. What makes TCM so unique is that it is build on a foundation of more than 2,500 years of Chinese medical practice that includes various forms of herbal medicine, acupucnture, massage (Tui Na), exercise (Qi Gong) and dietary therapy. It is now widely used as a complementary alternative medicine approach, especially in the Southern California Area.

The theories of Yin-Yang and the 5 Elements were two different interpretations of natural phenomena that originated in ancient China. These two theories played an active role in promoting the development of natural science in China as well as laying the foundation while greatly influencing the formation and developing the clinic work up at the present time. “Yin and Yang reflect all the forms and characteristics existing in the universe” is the first known reference from The Book of Changes (sixteenth century-22 B.C.) The five elements refer to five categories in the natural world, namely water, metal, earth, fire and wood. Amanda combines these different theories along with many others concepts and modalities to deepen her understanding of human body, mind and spirit while enriching her practices.
