What is Chinese Medicine and how does it work?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic healthcare system that aims to treat the whole person rather than just the disease. It has been the main medical system used in China for more than 2,000 years, treating a whole range of conditions. It's long history testifies to the wealth of wisdom, knowledge and experience it can offer. No synthetic drugs are used, and the treatment methods are natural. It aims to rebalance the body's energy systems, so that it can heal itself.


How does Chinese Medicine complement Western Medicine?

Its focus is on improving the overall well being of the patient, rather than the isolated treatment of specific systems, especially with some nagging chronic complaints, Traditional Chinese Medicine has more effective results.
