It has an uninterrupted history of development in China and other parts of East Asia dating back thousands of years. The primary feature of modern TCM is the premise that good health care relies on the restoration and maintenance of harmony, balance and order to the individual. While Chinese Medicine can remedy ailments and alter states of mind, it can also enhance recuperative power, regulate general immune function, and heighten the capacity for pleasure, work and creativity. There are outstanding benefits involved with incorporating Chinese Medicine into your daily life. The treatments used in Traditional Chinese Medicine aim to adjust and harmonise Yin and Yang, cold and hot, wet and dry, inner and outer, body and mind. This is achieved by regulating Qi (energy), moisture and blood, allowing weak organs to be toned, congested channels to open, tightness to soften, excess to be dispersed, agitation to be calmed, heat to be cooled, coldness to be warmed, dryness to be moistened and dampness to be drained.
