Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic system of health care, which looks at physical, mental and emotional aspects of your life to help you stay healthy and maintain a high-quality of life.
All clients are unique in their illnesses and therefore must be assessed individually to establish the most effective medical approach to their problems.
Incorporating the view of holism, Traditional Chinese Medicine also considers the influence of seasonal and climatic changes on the human body. TCM sees most conditions as temporary imbalances of the body, rather than permanent conditions.
It is also believed that temporary conditions left untreated may progress into chronic permanent conditions. Chinese Medicine recognises that some chronic conditions are hard to eradicate. In these cases, it aims to slow down the progress of those conditions and sustain a high-quality of life in patients.
The mental, physical and emotional aspects of a person’s being are all considered. In this way, TCM is seen to be a two-way road of information between patient and doctor where both parties need to share knowledge and work as a team to combat imbalance within the body.
