What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the oldest, most complete system of medicine still practiced today. In an ever-changing world, Chinese medicine remains current with today's complex health issues by combining thousands of years of clinical experience with today's research. Traditional Chinese Medicine can be used alone or in conjunction with Western medicine.
This single medical system utilizes 5 main modalities: Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Chinese medical massage ('tui na'), Eastern dietary therapy, and and exercise, such as qi gong and tai ji.
By restoring harmony between the mind, body, and spirit, Chinese medicine boosts the body's natural ability to heal itself. The focus is on the root of the problem, instead of just symptoms, so that problems disappear for good!
