Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a wide-ranging medical system that includes herbology, acupuncture, moxibustion, tuina therapy, diet therapy and qi gong. TCM has been used in China for over 4000 years and has become widely used. TCM is still the main form of treatment used in Chinese hospitals.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners believe that good health is a state of balance within the body. This balance allows the free flow of energy, blood and nourishment through all tissues and organs. Disease occurs when there is an imbalance of energies, blockage of the energy channels or a disruption of energy flow. The main goal of TCM is to bring the body into balance.
Modern scientific research confirms that TCM treatment promotes the production of natural healing substances to relieve pain, regulate nerve transmission, enhance the immune system, regulate hormone and blood flow and release natural anti-inflammatory substances.
