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.

TREATMENT MODALITIES OF TCM

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of treatment used by qualified TCM practitioners which involves the insertion of extremely fine pre-sterilized, single use only stainless steel needles at pre-determined points on the body surface (known as “acupuncture points”) to promote or restore health and wellbeing.

In the hands of a fully qualified professional practitioner the use of acupuncture is entirely safe and free of any harmful side-effects. It has stood the test of time over several thousands of years.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a form of heat treatment which is used by a fully qualified TCM practitioner when appropriate. The treatment is carried out by applying a substance known as "moxa" over a particular area or acupuncture point. This introduces heat into the area for therapeutic effect.

Dietary Therapy

This form of therapy is a highly sophisticated and ancient specialism in TCM terms, quite unlike any western, contemporary approximation. It involves careful monitoring of food and drink intake in order to eliminate disease and speed recovery. The TCM practitioner can advise a patient regarding the type of food eaten, the time and manner in which it is eaten, or the manner in which it is prepared, in order to promote cure and enhance health.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

This is a very extensive part of TCM and includes the dispensing of various Chinese herbal prescriptions in the form of natural herbs, pills, tablets, powders, ointments and other medical preparations.

Lifestyle Advice

This forms a crucial part of TCM treatment and concentrates on eliminating factors in the patient's life style or daily living activities that contribute to the cause or prolongation of a health complaint. Alternatively, the client can be instructed upon how to positively promote active health and increase wellbeing by suitably modifying the way they live.

Clearly, this type of specifically TCM instruction has no equivalent in conventional, western, medicine.
