Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has existed for over medical system with its own principles,diagnostic methods and   therapies.

TCM views the body as an organic whole with a network of meridians connecting and co-orinating the internal organs, Qi("vital energy"),blood,body fluids,muscles,bones,tendons and the skin.

TCM also holds as its central belief that health in all parts of the body is due to the relative balance of Yin and Yang. Yin-Yang theory forms the basis of TCM's holistic approach to health and disease and also offers practical guidance in the prevention and management of diseases.

TCM has two basic components—Chinese Herbal Therapy and Acupuncture.

Chinese Herbal Therapy & Acupuncture

The aim of Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture is to regulate the meridians or channels of the body to unblock the stagnation of Qi, as it believes that disease is caused by these energy blockages within the body.

The channels are related to the internal organs,which if out of balance is another important factor in the cause of disease. Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture are used to correct this imbalance.

Chinese Medicine is therefore a truly holistic form of medicine, aiming at treatment of the whole body rather than just the symptoms.


Chinese Herbal Therapy

Chinese herbs are an integral part of TCM. They are specially formulated in China and include flowers, leaf stalks,seeds and roots. Each herbs is used for specific purposes and perform particular functions.

The TCM practitioners prescribe combinations of herbs(carefully selecting up to 15 from a total of 300)specifically suited to treat you and your condition. Each prescription is therefore tailor-made. The herbs are cooked and drunk as a decoction("Tea")or taken in tablet form, to get to the root of the problem. You start by taking the medicine every day. As treatment continues, our practitioners closely monitor your progress through regular consultations,altering the prescription and reducing the doses accordingly. Since all patients and conditions are different, treatment can vary from a few weeks to several months. After a period of treatment you are able to stop taking the medicine.
