Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture
TCM stands for Traditional Chinese Medicine and includes acupuncture along with other therapeutic techniques such as cupping and moxibustion, the burning of herbs to warm acupuncture points or to move stagnant Qi energy.
The beauty of this system of medicine is that it provides the practitioner with a complete framework for the diagnosis of imbalance, or dis-ease. You may already have a Western diagnosis, or you may not, but your practitioner will make a thorough and complete assessment and design a treatment plan that is specific to your needs.
Chinese medicine is all about patterns and your practitioner will want to understand all aspects of your health. Often things that seem irrelevant are hugely important to your acupuncturist.
TCM has been successfully used for thousands of years for the treatment of all manner of problems from physical pain to mental and emotional suffering.
