Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a medical practice that originated from China over 2,500 years ago. TCM works by analysing the syndromes of ailments to treat their root causes. Treatments take on a holistic approach. The patient’s ‘chi’ (energy) that run along a body’s key meridians), as well as his physical and mental well-being are taken into consideration when administering treatments. The aim is to restore balance between these different elements, and as a result, eradicate the ailments and regain health.
