Traditional Chinese Medicine/TCM is a rich and complex medical system originating over three thousand years ago. Its extensive history has developed intricate diagnostic systems focused on assessing the whole person. It also encompasses an in-depth theory of disease patterns and a multitude of therapies and specialties. This multifaceted system provides explanations and treatments for symptoms experienced by those with multi-systemic, invisible and post-viral illnesses within its medical theories and diagnostics.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is rooted in performing an in-depth intake of each patient which includes gathering detailed information on organ systems, physical strengths and weakness, mental and emotional health, environmental factors, and external pathogens that have influenced one's health in order to create a treatment plan that aligns with the specific needs of the individual.
