With a history of 5000 years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has formed a unique system to diagnose and cure illness that is fundamentally different from Western medicine. In TCM, the understanding of the human body is based on the holistic understanding of the universe as described in Daoism, and the treatment of illness is based primarily on the diagnosis and differentiation of syndromes. TCM treats the whole person, not just the symptoms or current flare up. 

TCM is a complete medical system that is capable of treating disease in all its forms. Although your practitioner will treat whatever complaint you have come for, the traditional view places great importance on preventing disease before it occurs.

 TCM consists of:

  • nutritional support
  • acupuncture
  • bodywork
  • herbology
  • energy work

Some or several of these may be employed in the course of your treatment.
