Oriental Medicine (TCM)

Oriental Medicine is an ancient holistic system of healing that uses a variety of modalities.

Oriental diagnosis as it is referred to by TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)
practitioners covers diagnostic tools such as face, pulses, tongue, and nail
evolved over 3000 years. It has a rich history and traditionally it incorporates
these diagnostic arts, preserved not only from china (Traditional Chinese Medicine),
Korea (Traditional Korean Medicine), Traditional Japanese Medicine (Kampo) and
also Traditional Indian Medicine (Eastern medicine known as Ayurvedic medicine).

The art of this traditional medicine has embraced a strong cultural and philosophical
tradition for many centuries. Traditional Chinese Medicine (the broad term we mostly use)
is the crystallization of the wisdom of the Chinese people achieved in their long-term efforts
for treating diseases.

TCM practitioners use Treatment incorporating Medicinal Remedies and Physical Therapies to bring the
body back to health.

Qi (Chi) is the vital energy or life force that flows through the meridian channels or pathways of the body.
The meridians need to be in harmony not disharmony (dis-ease) to promote health. Qi regulates the
person’s spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health.

Medicinal herbs (and occasionally some animal and mineral products) in whole and natural form are
used to treat and prevent mental, physical, and emotional illness. Herbs are believed to restore harmony
to the mind, body, and emotions.

Oriental Medicine practitioners may also be trained in physical therapies such as acupuncture,
acupressure, auricular therapy, moxibustion, cupping, Shiatsu, Qigong and Tai Chi.

Health is an ongoing process of maintaining balance and harmony in the circulation of Qi.
