Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic medical system that has been developed over thousands of years.
It is based on the concept that disease and ill health occur due to imbalances affecting the flow of vital energy, Qi, throughout the body. TCM aims to restore balance to the flow of Qi, thereby restoring balance to both body and mind, thus rectifying health problems.
It does this by employing three main modes of treatment which are acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and tuina massage. Other aspects of TCM treatment include cupping therapy, moxibustion, Qi Gong and Tai Chi.
These treatment modalities can be used on their own, however, they are usually used in a combined way as they are mutually reinforcing.
