What is Chinese Medicine?
With over 2000 years of evolution, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a rich and sophisticated system of medicine. Qi (energy) is the central underlying principle in acupuncture and other TCM techniques. Traditional Chinese medicine practices access Qi through acupuncture points which are mapped along meridians (energy channels) on the body. Stimulating, manipulating and utilizing the flow of this energy facilitates our bodies own complex system of self healing.
Chinese medicine incorporates a number of different treatments which are utilised depending on the individual condition of the patient.
Treatments include: acupuncture, acupressure (therapeutic massage) cupping, moxibustion and herbal remedies
