How Traditional Chinese Medicine can help you

Traditional Chinese Medicine has 5000 years of history and it has been proven to be very effective in the treatment and prevention of a number of acute and chronic illnesses. Traditional Chinese Medicine yielded good results even though formal documentation and data remains inadequate.

Fundamental to Traditional Chinese Medicine are the powerful roles that balance and harmony play in health. The ancient Chinese observed cyclical patterns of nature and acknowledged the influences that the heavens played on their daily lives. Through patient observation, they realized that all parts of the universe are interrelated. They came to understand our place within nature, recognizing how natural forces strongly influence the affairs of humankind. They understood that we are but a microcosmic reflection of a much greater whole that encompasses all the forces of nature. These forces represent the myriad faces of Qi.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is safe, holistic, and natural. It is economical, less noxious and leads to fewer side effects. Western medicine focus on curing the existing disease, but Chinese Medicine solves the root of the problem and at the same time cure the disease. The strength of Chinese Medicine lies also in prevention of recurrence of diseases.
