What is TCM
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a holistic medicine and it dates back to before
the 21st century BC. With over thousands of years of practice and development,
Chinese medicine possesses a unique and integrated theory. It is a complete medicine
system. More and more research of modern medicine proves that Chinese medicine
has distinctive effects on most forms of illness.

The fundamental principle of Chinese medicine is that the human body is considered
as a whole system. The balance of the system is the foundation of the health, and thus
the imbalance of it will result in illness. The purpose of Chinese medicine is to
rebalance the system to return you the health.

Chinese medicine treats both acute and chronic conditions, and is suitable for all age
groups from young babies to the elderly and even pregnant women.
