Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete system of medicine, treating the root cause of a disease, so that the body may improve from the inside out, instead of masking symptoms. TCM includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, moxibustion, cupping, tuina, qi gong, dietary therapy and lifestyle education. This medical system has a long, rich history rooted in multiple ancient texts and tradition.
Each treatment is tailored to fit the specific needs of the individual patient. While TCM is an ancient healing art, it is useful for modern ailments and can be used both preventatively and with other wellness approaches.
