Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a branch of Chinese medicine that has been developed and refined through a combination of clinical practice and theory with an accumulated written history of over three thousand years and an estimated clinical history that dates back even further. TCM is a complete medical system used to diagnose, treat and prevent illness. As well as offering a system to address pain and illness, TCM offers support as a preventative measure to augment recuperative powers, fortify immunity and enhance quality of life.
Traditional Chinese Medicine incorporates acupuncture with bodywork, herbal and nutritional therapy. Acupuncture is used to assist in pain relief, facilitate health maintenance, for preventive care and in treatment of illness or injury. The underlying philosophy of Chinese Medicine is one in which the concept of ideal health is when the entire body - physically, mentally, and emotionally – is in a state of balance.
