Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM ), is a complete medical system that has diagnosed, treated and prevented illness for over 23 centuries. While it can remedy ailments and alter states of mind, TCM can also enhance recuperative power, immunity, and the capacity for pleasure, work and creativity.
The treatments used in Traditional Chinese Medicine aim to adjust and harmonise Yin and Yang - cold and hot, wet and dry, inner and outer, body and mind. This is achieved by regulating Qi (energy), moisture and blood, allowing weak organs to be toned, congested channels to open, tightness to soften, excess to be dispersed, agitation to be calmed, heat to be cooled, coldness to be warmed, dryness to be moistened and dampness to be drained.
Duration of treatment, which may incorporate Acupuncture, herbal remedies (herbs), diet, exercise and massage, depends on the nature of the complaint, its severity, and its longevity.
