Traditional Chinese Medicine:

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on traditional medical practices originating in China. TCM stems from the belief that what happens to one part of the body affects every other part of the body. Similarly, organs and organ systems are viewed as interconnected structures that work together to keep the body balanced and harmonious. 

TCM acknowledges that true healing is a multidimensional process. This ancient holistic medical system, understands that the body, mind, spirit and emotions must all be addressed in the healing journey. The mind and the emotions play a dominant role in creating wellness or illness and attracting disease.

All of these aspects and their relationships are mapped out in the theories that form the foundation of TCM: the Theory of Yin/Yang, the Theory of Qi (pronounced chee) or vital energy, Meridian Theory and the Five-Element Theory. TCM has used these time-tested theories to understand, diagnose and effectively treat health problems and conditions in continuous practice for thousands of years.
