What is TCM?

TCM stands for Traditional Chinese Medicine, an ancient and sophisticated medical system which originated in China but has increasingly spread throughout the world. It is well established and well documented, and it is the principle form of medical care available to a large portion of the world’s population.

TCM aims to restore internal health in the whole person and thereby not only treat illness but also promote active health and vitality and thereby increase resistance to disease.

TCM employs a variety of treatment methods which can all be combined with each other as well as with other systems of medicine, such as Western Medicine.

Health Promoting

From its very ancient origins TCM has been at once both preventative and curative, the ideal being to so strengthen the person’s overall health and well-being that they do not get sick in the first place, or if they do fall ill, to speed their recovery.

One of the most attractive and distinctive features of TCM is that, from its earliest days, it has emphasised the promotion of positive health and has not restricted itself merely to the treatment of disease.

One of the most outstanding features of TCM is that it can tailor the treatment to fit the complaint. It is also compatible with other systems of medicine, such as Western medicine.

 

Safe and Effective

In the hands of a fully qualified professional practitioner, TCM is safe and entirely without harmful side-effects. It has stood the test of time over two thousand years and has not been found wanting.

It is safe to say that there is no sick person who cannot be helped by TCM treatment, but only after a full traditional  Chinese medical diagnosis has been carried out.

The extent and speed of this help will naturally depend upon a number of considerations, such as the nature of the complaint and the length of time it has been there, as well as the frequency and type of treatment received.
