TCM is the oldest professional, continuously practised medicine in the world. It can be traced back more than 3000 years. It is now the second largest medical system in the world and it is currently used by one third of the world’s population.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a holistic medicine that considers the “whole” person – body, mind, diet, environment, emotions, lifestyle, and exercise.

• Herbal Medicine

• Cupping Therapy

• Dietary Therapy
Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment found in the traditional Chinese medicine; a technique that has been practiced for thousands of years. Acupuncture involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted in the body at very specific points. These points are usually the places where there is pain. Acupuncture may sometimes be used to relax muscle tension and reduce stress and is specifically great at releasing all kinds of pain syndromes. This process is believed to adjust the body’s energy flow into healthier patterns and become better balanced. It is used to cure a variety of diseases, illnesses, and health conditions.
