Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the common name used for a broad range of medical practices that was developed over 5,000 years ago in China that is still widely practised in modern-day China, and many countries worldwide like Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, United Kingdom and United States.

All our therapies are based on traditional Chinese medicinal practice.

TCM practitioners are self-regulated in the UK. The Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ATCM), one of the leading self-regulating bodies is working with the Healthcare Professionals Council (HCPC) to set up the regulatory framework pending further legislation.

Chinese medicine was established through centuries of clinical practice. While evidence of TCM practice was recorded 2000 years ago. the history and traditions of TCM predates this and stretches back another 3000 years.

Traditional Chinese is unique for its holistic and preventative approach. While patients may approach a practitioner with a single medical complaint, the treatment will involve the application of one or more therapies to treat the specific complaint as well as related symptoms and conditions.

For example, a patient who seeks help for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) may also suffer from fatigue, insomnia, hypotension (low blood pressure), and a poor immune system. Hence more than one therapy will be used to treat all these conditions to return the body (and mind) to a state of equilibrium. Established TCM precepts explain that the mind and body must be in balance for true health to be achieved.
