Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a wonderfully rich and very established system of healthcare.
It is both general medicine and specialty medicine. It treats illnesses from the common cold to the very chronic and complex.
Chinese medicine is a very good problem solver in the clinic and can be used to treat some particularly stubborn and elusive illnesses.
Chinese medicine has an entirely unique understanding of health and disease. Coupled with some "different" treatment tools and techniques, Chinese medicine can offer a much needed edge over your health condition.
If you are considering Chinese medicine for the first time, fear not. It is safe and gentle and without harmful side effects. It takes into account your complete health picture, and treatment is always intricately tailored to your individual situation.
The two main treatment tools of Chinese medicine are acupuncture and herbal medicine.
