What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?
TCM aims to promote the natural healing process. It works harmoniously and energetically to bring the body, mind and spirit back into a normal, healthy state of balance. A gentle and holistic approach to treating you as an individual, it encompasses acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
Acupuncture is the ancient practice of inserting sterile needles into defined acu-points along the body. This promotes the movement of ‘Qi’ (energy) to reduce or eradicate disease, pain and stress within the body. It is relaxing and enjoyable experience. Furthermore, it is an effective and safe, drug free treatment method now gaining wide acceptance in medical science, including the World Health Organization (WHO) recognition.
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine is a proven, effective treatment for the relief of wide range of health conditions with little to no side effects. Its foundations were developed thousands of years ago, based upon clinical practice, and now modern medical research. It assists with general well-being to prevent disease. Together, Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine works with you and your body to enhance normal bodily functions and strengthen the immune system.
