Traditional Chinese Medicine (“TCM”)


TCM has a history of over 4,000 years and is a comprehensive medicine system with its own series of scientific methods and therapy. It takes a holistic approach to health and thus believes any part of the body can be viewed only in relation to the whole. Any illness is therefore regarded as an imbalance of the whole body, and the objective of the treatment will be to retrieve balance.

A consultation involves questioning and evaluation of the tongue and pulse before a diagnosis can be made.

All the symptoms of the patient are significant as they give the practitioner a better indication of the cause of discomfort and illness. The tongue and pulse indicate a patient’s condition, the state of his or her energy, body fluids, vital organs and type of discomfort. A basic theory of Chinese Medicine is that the meridians, which travel the body, are organized in an hierarchy to protect the vital organs. Deficiencies, excesses and stresses from within and without should be circulated and deflected away from these vital organs.
