About Traditional Chinese Medicine
Dating back almost 3,000 years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the earliest forms of medical treatment. It focuses on treating the root cause of illness, strengthening the body’s defenses, and enhancing its capacity to heal from injury or disease and to bounce back from pre-existing conditions.
As one of the oldest healing systems on the planet, TCM has been very effective in helping people live a life of wellness and harmony through physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance.
The core theory of TCM is based on our body’s meridians. Essentially, these are channels that run through the body while allowing vital energy (also known as “qi”), blood, and oxygen to flow freely through the body’s pathways. Anything that disrupts these pathways is said to cause illness, create stagnation, and allow disease to take hold.
