Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) originated in China over 3,500 years ago, making it a truly ancient way of healing. Different methods are used during treatment to bring the body to balance. These include: acupuncture which works on the meridians (ear & body), cupping which is used to move blood & qi (energy) and to remove stagnations, and moxibustion which involves lighting a mugwort herbal stick and using it as a warming treatment. Diet therapy and herbal formulas are also considered. TCM treats most disease and illness and can also be used as a preventative measure.
