How TCM Works

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used in the treatment and prevention of diseases for over thousands of years. TCM adopts a holistic approach in healing the body and mind.

According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health and wellness is linked to the movements of the body’s energy, known as Qi and blood. Illness occurs when the flow of Qi and blood is blocked or unbalanced.

The body constitution of each individual is unique and thus systemic examination and analysis of the body’s conditions is required to design a suitable treatment plan.

Treatment approaches such as acupuncture, Tuina, herbal medication, cupping etc aim to harmonize the flow of Qi and restore proper function of the body.

Today, TCM is also widely used to promote health and improve overall well-being and to complement the treatment of Western medical conditions.
