Treatment


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system of diagnosis and treatment and refers to a broad range of medicine practices sharing common theoretical concepts which have been developed in China and look back on a tradition of several thousands of years, including various forms of acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage therapy, and dietary therapy.

One of the unique aspects of TCM is that the diagnosis and treatment is not based on physical symptoms, but on the identification of patterns. The culmination of signs and symptoms of disease show an underlying reason, or root cause, of why the symptoms exist therefore displaying a pattern of imbalance. The treatment of disease in TCM is through the deeper, underlying cause rather than the masking of symptoms.

During your first visit, we will take a detailed medical history, discuss your symptoms, and examine your pulse and tongue. After arriving at a specific diagnostic conclusion, we will explain you the nature of your problem and what treatment is recommended. We will also tell you what benefits and risks there are to the proposed treatment, what other treatment options are available to you through this practitioner or by referral to another practitioner or physician.

The number of treatments required will vary depending on the nature, severity and duration of the complaint, as well as the general health and response to the treatment of the individual. Generally, acute conditions respond fast, while chronic or degenerative conditions require longer treatment.

Treatment is applied according to the diagnosis, and one or several of the following techniques will be incorporated in the treatment.
