What is Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) originated in China over 5,000 years ago and views a person as an energy system in which body, mind and spirit are unified, each influencing & balancing the other. TCM emphasizes a holistic approach that treats the whole person, not just a symptom or condition. The goal of treatment is to bring balance to the movement of life-force energy called “qi” (pronounced chee) in the body, to restore health and prevent disease.

TCM comprises of several different treatment methods. Here at True Health we may use or combine any of the following methods during a session;

  • Acupuncture (the insertion of very fine needles)

  • Massage / Tui Na (Chinese massage)

  • Moxibustion (the application of heat to acupoints)Patent herbal formulas (pre-packaged powdered herbal pills)

  • Cupping & gua-sha

  • Chinese exercise therapy (Qi Gong; breathing & meditation techniques; Tai Chi)

  • Dietary & lifestyle advice

Due to the gentle, subtle effect of TCM, usually more than one treatment is required to make a lasting change. During your first treatment, we will give you options for specific treatment plans.
