What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an effective method of health care, based on centuries of applied clinical practices. These practices are derived from comprehensive medical theories from many different regions of China. Some of the unique therapeutic techniques encompassed under this umbrella are: cupping, guasha, moxibustion, Tuina, and acupuncture.
Why Use TCM?
While Western medicine routinely resorts to the use of prescription drugs and invasive surgery, Chinese Medicine embraces a preventative approach in order to maintain one’s health. TCM also emphasizes correct diet, appropriate herbal formulas and supplements, as well as lifestyle modifications to restore health. TCM is currently becoming integrated with allopathic, functional, and naturopathic Western medical practice approaches.
Physicians are now beginning to advocate the tempered use of drugs and surgery, improvements in the Western diet, and the importance of addressing underlying causes of disorders or the root of these health concerns, rather than just treating symptoms, or the branch. With a correct diagnosis and individualized treatment strategy, Chinese Medicine can alleviate a wide array of health conditions.
