Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used for thousands of years. In this time it has remained largely unchanged and this is for good reason – because it works! Viewing the body as a complex microsystem rather than a sum of its parts, TCM practitioners assist the body to return to a state of healthy homeostasis and balance. As it is a holistic model of healing and medicine, imbalances can be treated that are on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Acupuncture, herbs, cupping and lifestyle advice are used as treatment tools to achieve and maintain this balance.
TCM practitioners also view no two human beings as the same. There is a saying in Chinese Medicine that goes “One disease; many treatments. One treatment; many diseases” which implies not only the individuality of each person, but also the individuality of each treatment.
