Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a number of supporting and inter-promoting holistic therapeutic practices such as Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Cupping and Herbal medicine, developed by the Chinese over thousands of years for the treatment and prevention of disease.
The TCM system is as ancient and effective as any other medical techniques used in the world today. In fact, the World Health Organisation recognises acupuncture as effective in the treatment of more than 300 diseases.
There is an ever increasing percentage of the world’s population that now uses acupuncture and herbs as their main form of health care. A combination of techniques may be used to address your specific needs including:
Although acupuncture has been used in England , France , and Germany for few hundred years, only in the past three decades has TCM and acupuncture been more widely recognised in Australia.
In TCM each and every sign and symptom is understood and interpreted in relationship to all the others.
Therefore TCM has individualized diagnostic and treatment techniques that are a representation of the body-mind-spirit. In TCM everything about your physical and emotional condition as well as your past health is important in understanding and identifying your underlying pattern of imbalance.
Treatment addresses all areas at once, a practitioner of TCM can see all the symptoms as a single pattern. The prescribed treatment is designed to work effectively with the entire pattern and all its symptoms.
TCM cannot separate a person into segmented parts treating one symptom or part at the expense of another. It is designed to treat the person, not just the disease. This is why TCM is recognized as being holistic and every thing about you is vitally important for effective treatment.
MAIN GOAL OF TCM
The ideal of holistic well-being is the realisation of our human potential as total beings, and our desire to live fulfilling and satisfying lives. The goal is not just to be “well” in the physical body, but also to be in harmony with our environment and ourselves at all levels, body, mind and spirit.
Also diet, exercise, life-style, social responsibility and relationships are taken into consideration when creating the optimum well-being.
