The Jade Centre is owned by Louise Attwood
I’m Louise Attwood, owner of The Jade Centre and key practitioner. Let me tell you a bit about myself and my practice.
I originally trained as a nurse, and although I gained a great deal of knowledge about Western Medicine through this line of work I always felt something was missing. While I believe that Western Medicine has much to offer, I always felt there was a lot lacking as it didn’t look at many of the aspects of people’s lives that could have been adding to their health problems.
To fill this gap I was drawn towards Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture. Although its language is very different to Western Medicine it has clear and definite ways of diagnosing and understanding our health, which is an approach that I both admire and respect.
TCM is not just about treating people. It is a way life!
Ancient Chinese Medicine includes an understanding of the world in which we live, and the importance of our relationship with nature. This relationship permeates through the whole of the Chinese Medicine system and the approach is as valid today as it has ever been – offering clear, sensible advice for many areas of our lives.
One of Chinese Medicine’s greatest strengths is that it can help discover the actual cause of a disease. It looks at all elements of our lives, including our lifestyle, to gain a complete picture of what is going wrong. Once the problems have been identified we can help you to begin the healing process. This is extremely empowering, as it helps you to reclaim control over your own health.
