Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient and complex medical system that has been in practice for over 5,000 years.

With philosophical roots in Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism, TCM is based on a holistic view of the universe and reflects the belief that human beings have an intimate and inextricably interdependent relationship with the environment around them.

TCM treatment modalities include acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage, acupressure, dietary therapy, as well as Qi Gong and Taiji Quan.

Major theories of TCM include: Yin-yang, Five Elements, Zang-Fu, Channel theory, Eight principles, Six levels and Four stages.
