Traditional Chinese Medicine

 


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a time tested system of health care and management. Traditional Chinese Medicine has a vast history of over 2500 years. TCM has the ability to restore your health and initiate your body's self regulating and self healing capabilities.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on theories of systematic correspondence (such as Yin and Yang, Five Elements etc.) its techniques in DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS are unique to this form of medicine. TCM's methodology takes into account all contributing factors to a patient's condition; the physician will include your emotional, environmental, and physical state.
