What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?
Balance. Harmony. Energy.
The TCM approach to healing is holistic, or systems-based. Rather than prescribing remedies with narrow healing scopes, TCM practitioners see symptoms as manifestations of multiple factors. While Western medicine is excellent at treating specific diseases, TCM is a solid alternative if you are keen on improving your entire well-being.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly-used medical therapies in the world, where treatments provide healing without pharmaceutical medication.
How does acupuncture work?
The technique involves inserting hair-thin needles into specific acupuncture points throughout the body. Acupuncture can stimulate and arouse human body’s potential healing power. The needles may be manipulated by the hands or by an electrical stimulation.
Depending on the issue(s), acupuncture is used as an individual therapy or combined with herbal medicine.
