More people have been treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine than any other medical practice in the world. Traditional Chinese medicine employs many different protocols and techniques. It is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism which dates back more than 5,000 years. The theories at the very core of TCM took shape approximately 2,000 years ago into the practice we understand it to be today. With hundreds of years application, contemporary TCM has grown into an all-encompassing database for overcoming both old and new medical difficulties.
TCM is based on a set of interventions designed to restore balance to human beings. A diagnosis derived from TCM consists of tracing and rectifying symptoms of the underlying imbalance, predominantly by palpating the pulse and inspecting the tongue. All the treatments applied in TCM are aiming to balance the Yin and Yang in ones’ body thereby, allowing the body to naturally heal itself.
