Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on ancient healing philosophies and techniques and is widely practised around the world. In China it is used alongside conventional medicine in hospitals and healthcare clinics.
According to the principles of TCM, a life-energy called qi circulates in our bodies through an intricate web of energy pathways known as meridians. When these pathways are not functioning properly as a result of illness, poor diet or stress, the flow of qi can weaken or become blocked. This can affect organ function and cause illness. TCM helps to restore the body to a state of balance and improve wellbeing.
