Home > About TCM

Traditional Chinese Medicine originated in China over 2000 years ago. It is a system of medicine that categorizes groups of symptoms into diagnoses with corresponding treatment plans. The foundation of Chinese Medicine is a set of philosophical frameworks that describe a holistic view of a person, their environment and the imbalances that may occur leading to pathology.

These frameworks allow us to explain the causes of the disease, how it manifests, and how to readdress the balance using tools like acupuncture, herbal medicine and diet.
