What is Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM?
Chinese Medicine is a complex holistic system that uses a variety of therapeutic and diagnostic methods such as acupuncture, herbal formulas, pulse diagnosis, and nutritional counseling to return the body to balance. Learning about your health history, diet, and lifestyle will help us to better understand the root cause of your problem and effectively treat it. Problems that occur in the body are not viewed as an isolated set of symptoms, but rather pieces of a puzzle that create a picture. This picture is seen as a unique disease pattern and treatment plans are then tailored to meet your individual health concerns.
