Stress Relief with Oriental Medicine

Oriental Medicine for Stress Relief at Como Shambhala Estate in Bali

Stress Relief is something we’re all seeking are we not? Life these days moves so fast and expectations are higher. The demands of trying to balance work, family and personal welfare can weigh heavy on the soul. So how can Oriental Medicine or commonly known as Traditional Chinese Medicine help? What is it and how does it differ from a regular visit to the Doctor?

Oriental Medicine is its own self-contained system of treatment developed over the last few thousand years. All aspects of a person’s life are used as a means of treatment and a way to balance the health. Symptoms are treated not as an occurrence separate from the person as a whole. They are treated as part of an overall ecosystem which is the human body. So when a person is seeking stress relief because they are close to burnout, everything is taken into consideration, not just the amount of hours you’re clocking.

David Melladew, Oriental Medicine Consultant at COMO Shambhala Estate, is part of a superb team of resident health and wellness experts. The team includes a Dietitian from USA, an Indian Ayurvedic Doctor, a Fitness Expert and an Acupuncturist, something integral to Chinese Traditional Medicine (TCM).

The Oriental Medicine Wellness Program at COMO Shambhala Estate promotes health and well-being by balancing the physical, emotional and energy systems of the body. We love to help you to personalize your program and will guide you through making the right first steps. Expect a pre arrival health form and a consultation on arrival. After meeting with David, a individual program will be designed with you in mind which may include, acupuncture, fitness activities such as Qigong, Aqua Therapy or Yoga, Chinese herbs and a healthy diet plan.
