Traditional Chinese Medicine

Safe natural therapy to heal illness and improve well-being

Practiced for more than 2,500 years in China, Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is based on a basic concept that a vital force of life, called Qi, surges through the body. Any imbalance to Qi can cause disease and illness.

Treatment to regain balance may involve:

  • Acupuncture
  • Cupping (the use of warmed glass jars to create suction on certain points of the body)
  • Massage
  • Herbal remedies
  • Movement and concentration exercises (such as tai chi)

Acupuncture is an ancient technique in which a skilled practitioner inserts hair-thin needles into specific points on the body to prevent or treat illness.
