Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a 3000 year old holistic medical practice with a natural and preventative approach to health care. It is an art and science for disease diagnosis, treatment & prevention using natural therapies and gentle techniques to create balance and wellness.

The medical perspective of TCM views the human body as an integrated whole, acknowledging the need to balance the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the individual. With a main focus on treating the underlying root causes of illness rather than treating the symptoms by stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself. TCM is a proven scientific treatment for numerous health conditions.

TCM is based on the concept of Qi (pronounced “chee”) or essential life force that flows through the body, circulating through invisible pathways called meridians that influenced associate organs and structures. Energy from these pathways, surfaces at various points on the body, called acu-points.
