Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the common name used for a broad range of medical treatments. These were developed over 5,000 years ago in China. These treatments are still widely practised in modern-day China. Furthermore, it is in practice worldwide. It is popular in countries like Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, United Kingdom and United States.
All our therapies are based on traditional Chinese medicinal practice, which was established through centuries of clinical practice. While evidence of TCM practice was recorded 2000 years ago. the history of TCM predates this. In actual fact, TCM traditions stretch back another 3000 years.
Traditional Chinese is unique for its holistic and preventative approach. Generally, patients approach a practitioner with a single medical complaint. The practitioner will first diagnose, And then more than one, treatment may be used to treat the patient. This helps to treat the specific complaint as well as related symptoms and conditions.
For example, a patient may seek help for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). But s/he may also suffer from other symptoms This could include fatigue, insomnia, hypotension (low blood pressure), and/or a poor immune system. Hence more than one therapy will be used for treatment. The combined treatments seek to return the body (and mind) to a state of equilibrium. This is because established TCM precepts explain that the mind and body must be in balance for true health to be achieved.
