FOUNDATIONAL FAMILY DYNAMICS - Fertility - Pre-conception - Pregnancy - Birth - Postpartum - Lactation - Early life development - Adolescence.
Foundational Family Dynamics (FFD): An important consideration for healthy pregnancies.
FFD is a service which supports parents, both physically and psychologically, to create the optimum conditions for a safe, peaceful, and happy pregnancy, plus it provides the skills to develop and maintain trusting relationships.
Foundational Family Dynamics gives you a 'new' perspective, some options and awareness to discern what is a good choice therapeutically for you and your children.
- Fertility: For couples who have tried for a minimum of six months without any pregnancies or miscarriage.
- Pre-Conception: Providing couples who are desiring to have a child with multiple ways to deepen the experience.
- Pre-conception assessment: Women who have a history of miscarriage, previous difficult pregnancies, and/or labour/post-partum complications. FFD highly recommends a pre-conception assessment. Obviously pregnancy requires that the baby grows from mum's resources, ensuring these resources are strong and vital is off paramount importance.
- Pregnant now: Women who are already pregnant and experiencing physical, and/or psychological symptoms,
- Post-Partum: Women having post-partum difficulties,
- Parent/Adult/Child relationships: For parents, carers, grandparents, extended family who are experiencing difficulties with child health, and/or relational issues from birth through to adolescence.
Classical Chinese Medicine understands that the vitality of both parents is equally important if they are to minimize complications in pregnancy/labour/and the Post-Partum period, and to ensure that longevity, strength, and vitality are passed onto their children.
Classical Chinese Medicine has a knowledge of health and pregnancy that does not currently exist in western medical approaches. For example, if you are in your late thirties and struggling to conceive, chances are there will be an enormous pressure for you to take up IVF. Now what happens if when you begin the medications you start to feel awful? Now instinctively you might know that this is not good, but hey, its worth it if I can conceive! And this is my best shot! Well, what if there was another way to conceive, a way that does not cause you to feel awful? Would you consider it?
Watch this short video by Dr Yaron Seidman who founded HunYuan Medicine, a specialist in fertility and pregnancy. In this video Dr Seidman explains some foundational thinking of Classical Chinese Medicine, and perhaps why it is so important for prospective mother's to be restored to their maximum potential before becoming pregnant.
He also talks about how this relates to the outcomes of different types of treatment towards fertility and pregnancy, and especially in relation to the 'side effects' of various treatments, such as IVF, and the deleterious effects these can have on the generations to come.

A FOUNDATIONAL APPROACH TO WELL-BEING
Classical Acupuncture takes into consideration the 'roots' from where you came from.
The 'timing' of your conception and birth + the vitality of your mother & father are the 'bedrock' of your foundation. This foundation determines your vitality, and contains the 'bank balance' for your entire life.
Classical Chinese Medicine explains the most effective ways to spend your 'bank balance' in order to maintain wellness & prevent many of the illnesses associated to ageing.
Your foundation can be prematurely exhausted due to factors such as stress, irregular diet, sleep & exercise.
Stress, or rather the way you respond to events in your life is strongly influenced by your in-utero, birth and early life experiences. Basically, if your mum was stressed when she was carrying you, then your nervous system is set-up to respond stressfully.
Classical acupuncture addresses these origins of illness.
Treat yourself to a comprehensive assessment of your current symptoms and your unique constitutional balance. From this we can determine what is the most effective treatment plan to bring back vitality & achieve your wellness goals.
Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Chinese Medical Psychology complement each other. The advantage of combining often allows for longer intervals between treatment visits with nourishing, sustained, step by step improvements. Inquire about this at your first diagnostic appointment.
Chinese Herbal medicines are perhaps one of the greatest tools available for preventative maintenance, and support for preexisting conditions.
The Classical 'Masters' of Chinese Medicine catalogued individual herbs & created herbal formulas based on
The 5 Tastes - Acrid (Pungent) - Salty - Sour - Sweet & Bitter
The 5 Directions - East - South - West - North & the Centre
The 5 Temperatures - Warm - Hot - Cool - Cold & Neutral
They could determine, to a very precise degree, the symptoms of a person and to which, taste, direction & temperature, these symptoms related to.
Therefore, Chinese Herbal Medicine, to a great degree, is a directional medicine.
For example: If you cant wake up in the morning with the vibrancy of the Sun, then there is something out of balance in the East of you. One could prescribe Acrid, warm/hot herbs to encourage a greater vitality to the east.
If you have constipation, then the West is effected, as everything that goes downward is related to the West.
It is truly the most magical of medical systems, and after 29 years of working with herbs I am still blown away by the finesse of the ancient masters.
