  • What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (often referred to as TCM) is a complete medical system that has been practiced continuously for more than five thousand years. TCM takes a deep understanding of the laws and patterns of nature and applies them to the human body. At the heart of TCM is the tenet that the root causes of illnesses, not their symptoms, must be treated.

TCM is made up of a number of treatment modalities, which include Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Tuina Massage, Cupping, Skin Scraping, Moxibustion, Medical Qigong, Foods for Healing and Medicinal Liquors. As such, it is an integrated system of medicine which emphasizes non-invasive practices and the use of natural herbal remedies.
