WHAT IS TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE ?
(TCM stands for Traditional Chinese Medicine)
Acupuncture and TCM is the principle form of medical care available to a large portion of the world's population. Traditional Chinese Medicine, through the use of Acupuncture and other classical medical therapies such as Chinese Herbal Medicine, Moxibustion, Dietary Therapy, Lifestyle analysis and advice, Exercise such as Tai Chi and Qi Gong, aims to establish energetic harmony in the whole person and thereby not only treat illness but also promote active health and vitality and thereby increase resistance to disease.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a full medical system and, as such, can be used to treat any type of condition. Treatment effectiveness will depend on the type of condition, its severity, how long it has been in existence and so on.
From its very ancient origins such medicine 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.
The scope and range of ailments amenable to TCM care is enormous. All ages of client can be catered to, from the tiny infant to the very old.. Those properly qualified can treat animals with TCM therapy. TCM in general, including Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Medical Qigong can be combined with, or used alongside, other medical therapies and disciplines, such as western medicine.
