What is TCM

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has existed for over 4,000 years. All the treatments are natural therapies and all medicines are found in nature, making TCM the world’s safest and most comprehensive medical system with its own principles, diagnostic methods and therapies.

TCM forms the basis of a medical system that is used by a quarter of the world population. This is a natural form of therapy that lacks the dramatic impact of medical drugs, which often lead to side effects. TCM acts in a more gentle and gradual manner, assisting the body to heal itself in a holistic way, so that the root cause of the problem is treated along with the symptoms.

TCM views the body as an organic whole with a network of meridians connecting and coordinating the internal organs, Qi (vital energy), blood, body fluids, muscles, bones, tendons and skin.

TCM has two basic components: Chinese Herbal Therapy and Acupuncture. The aim of Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture is to regulate the meridians or channels o the body to unblock the stagnation of Qi, as it is based upon the belief that disease is caused by energy blockage in those channels within the body.

Diagnostic information from a Chinese Medicine doctor is gathered by four examinations: looking, listening, asking and touching. Most important examinations are based on examining your tongue, its overall color and coating will tell the doctor about the condition of your internal organs.

A Chinese Medicine doctor will examine you utilizing rational techniques, and consult with you on present and past medical conditions and lifestyle. The examination or consultation can be taken in a private interview room. The doctor will recommend a course of treatment to heal the problem according to the principles of Chinese Medicine.
