Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest healing systems in the world. It is a type of holistic, natural health care system that has been in continuous practice for thousands of years. It is formed by summarizing the previous experience of understanding life, fighting diseases and maintaining health. The key for TCM principles is:
“Your body is an integrated whole, each structure in your body is an integral and necessary part of the whole. You are completely connected to nature, changes in nature are always reflected your body. You were born with a natural self-healing ability. Prevention is the best cure, your body is continually revealing signs about the state of your health and TCM teaches you how to interpret what your body is telling you”.
The aim of Traditional Chinese Medicine is to correct imbalances in the body and primarily work in three major ways: addressing the patient’s external factors, helping patients relate to their emotions in a healthy way, improving someone’s lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise routine.
