TCM Traditional Chinese medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine, also known as TCM, includes a range of traditional medicine practices originating in China. Although well accepted in the mainstream of medical care throughout East Asia, it is considered an alternative medical system in much of the Western world. TCM practices include such treatments as Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, dietary therapy, and Tui na massage.

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long history and goes back more than 4000 years.

 

The old masters of TCM obtained a very high degree of knowledge and awareness by meticulous observation of the interaction of nature, the cosmos, and the human body. Using this knowledge they develloped a very concrete medical system with its own specific fysiology, diagnostics and treatments, which is able to understand the relationship between fysical, psychic, emotional, environmental and parental factors. TCM has become an extensive and valuable system that provides a major contribution to the current health care delivery.

Treatment

Traditional Chinese medicine uses of a wide range of treatments, including massage, kinematics, dieticians, Weed Science and acupuncture. Depending on your overall fitness and specific ailment you will be treated with a herbal preparation or with acupuncture. If you are seriously weakened, you will first receive supportive treatment with herbs, until you gained enough strength to be treated with acupuncture. A herbal treatment generally means you will be taking herbs two or three times a day, untill the complaint is resolved.


The chinese herbs are provided to you like a kind of thea or soup: an extract, dried herbs in boiling water. After the first consultation that can last up to one hour, you will have to visit your practitioner for checkups once a week or once the other week. While doing the checkup, the practitioner will sometimes adjust the recipe according to your health improvements and the changing of your symptoms.

 

You may experience mild nausea, diarrhea or digestive symptoms while your body gets accustomed to the herbs, but that is normal and usually a good sign.
