Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an important and often underestimated complete medical system used worldwide. Developed over 2000 years ago in China, TCM consists of medical practices that balance the vital force called ‘qi’, the quantum energy that exists in all living beings, in order to treat and prevent illnesses. TCM includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, moxibustion, cupping, massage (tui na), exercise (qi gong and tai chi) and dietary therapy. TCM has many applications, especially in the prevention and management of chronic diseases.

TCM is most effective when used in combination with western medicine, this synergy is called integrative medicine. An integrative medicine approach with integrative medical doctors who are trained in both medical systems can offer you the most safe and effective therapies for optimal health.
