Komyuniti distinguishes itself through its adherence to the ancient texts of Zhang Zhong Jing, a renowned physician from 220 AD. Zhang Zhong Jing’s treatise on cold damage disease, which is one of the oldest medical textbooks in existence, serves as the foundation for our method of healing.
At Komyuniti, our practitioners specialise in Jing Fang, a unique form of Chinese herbal medicine deeply rooted in the ancient medical literature written by Zhang Zhong Jing in 210 AD. Specifically, the Shang Han Lun (Treatise on Cold Damage) and Jin Gui Yao Lue (Prescriptions from the Golden Cabinet) provide precise and effective treatments for a wide range of common ailments. These invaluable texts serve as essential resources for modern practitioners.
Jing Fang adopts a systemic approach to herbal formulas, prioritising the holistic treatment of the body rather than focusing solely on individual symptoms. It emphasizes addressing the underlying causes of diseases rather than merely alleviating outward signs or manifestations. As such, Jing Fang aims at overall health improvement, not just symptom relief.
Moreover, Jing Fang strategies are tailored to each individual’s needs, with custom-made formulations carefully selecting herbs based on the patient’s constitution and condition. This holistic approach has been proven time and again to be beneficial in restoring balance to one’s health and well-being.
Chinese medicine encompasses a vast and ancient field of therapeutic treatments, offering various modalities designed to restore balance and harmony in the body. Some of the most commonly used techniques include:
At Komyuniti, we adopt a highly personalised approach to Chinese medicine and acupuncture. During our consultations, which typically last around one hour, our practitioners assess your condition by taking your pulse, studying your tongue and abdomen, and gathering a comprehensive case history. This information is then used to create a tailored treatment plan intended to improve your health and well-being.
At Komyuniti, we prioritise the use of potent and effective Chinese herbal products. Quality is of utmost importance to us, which is why we have partnered with Empirical Health, an Australian-owned company that emphasises social responsibility and environmental protection. As the only Chinese herbal medicine business in Australia approved by the Australian Certified Organic Processing facility, their herbs undergo rigorous testing for over 400 pesticides and must pass a thorough three-tier analysis process before they can be used.
The Jing Fang herbal approach represents a highly sophisticated system of diagnosis and treatment, considering an individual’s symptoms comprehensively. By categorising and classifying the signs experienced by a person, this system matches them with specific formulas tailored to their needs.
This personalised approach provides greater accuracy compared to treating the illness as a whole, ultimately leading to significant improvements in health. Moreover, this method encourages natural healing processes while aiding in the restoration of homeostasis within the body.
