Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a type of holistic, natural health care system that dates back over 2,500 years and includes natural treatments such as acupuncture, herbal remedies, dietary advice, stress/emotional support, exercise including tai chi and qi gong and treatments such as cupping and moxibustion.
TCM is “holistic” and “natural” because it stimulates the body’s own healing mechanisms and takes into account all aspects of a patient’s life, with an aim to correct imbalances in the body and primarily work in three major ways:
Addressing a patient’s external factors and environment
Helping patients relate to their internal emotions in a healthier way, including managing stress
Improving someone’s lifestyle factors, including diet and exercise routine
