TCM provides a simplistic way to health. We rely on careful and honest diagnostic skills to formulate the best care for our patients. Our aim is to seek the source of disharmony within an individual and then to treat it, supporting a person on their way to health and wellness.
The primary concerns of classical TCM are to restore harmony within an individual. Palpation of the pulse, enquiry about sleep, stool, energy, emotion and observation of the tongue, and eyes (which reflect the Spirit), act as the foundation to health and provide essential information to guide treatment.
TCM uses a range of therapeutic interventions including:
▪ CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE

These “tools” are tailored for your individual health condition and aimed to promote normal circulation of blood and energy and normal functioning of the organ systems within the body. The ultimate goal is to promote good health and prevent illness. TCM will improve your quality of life.
