Traditional Chinese Medicine is a system of healthcare that has evolved over the last 3000 years incorporating diagnosis, individual pattern differentiation, treatment prescriptions, lifestyle and diet advice. In modern times, frequently alongside Western Medicine, it is used to support and speed up self-healing in China and worldwide.
Western Medicine views the human body as being comprised of physical structures and components which interact in a complex and subtle manner treating symptoms using drugs, radiation or surgery.
In contrast, Chinese Medicine focuses more on the processes of the human body viewed as an energy system whereby various substances interact to create a dynamic flow. It seeks to treat both the symptoms and root of an illness using different treatment modalities such as Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Cupping, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Lifestyle and Diet Advice in order to heal the body from the inside-out by stimulating the internal resources to re-balance the processes and gain an upper hand on the symptoms and dis-ease.
